I couldn't resist this stamp when I saw it at Rubber Necker! The night I got the stamp I stamped two images and then colored them in while watching tv...but that was as far as I got because I fell asleep early. So, the next night I made this card...I liked it so much that I actually made TWO of the same card (which is unusual for me).
This kind of came together on it's own. I used an old sketch challenge from SplitcoastStampers. I grabbed a couple papers that went together...and went from there. The "rusted" looking paper is from a paper stack I got at Joann's. I ran it through the cuttlebug to emboss it and then sanded off the top of the embossed to give it some distressing. I added the little mini button brads to finish it off.
One card went to my boss (I was giving out thank you cards to everyone at work for their birthday gifts and knew he'd get a laugh out of it) and the other card is going to go to my brother (for 'pissing me off' and taking that job in Reno!)
I've also seen people use this stamp but omit the hydrant and have the dog peeing on other things (like snowmen). Hmmm...I guess the possibilities are endless!
I'll probably work on a few cards this weekend. Monday I'm doing a Stamp-A-Stack of birthday cards with a group of women. I also have got some fun mail that I'll be sharing this upcoming week. So keep your eyes peeled!
