CCEE 1804 ~ Can't Imagine .....

Hello friends!

The CCEE Stampers have a new challenge this week :)
Liz has given us our last challenge for the month of January
and it's a fun one!
We are to create a card using our favorite card making technique ~
and for me, it's masking and/or paper piecing .... so why not both! ♥

When MFT released their Furever Friends card kit, I about fell out of my chair!
I love ALL things with puppies and just have. to. have. it.  LOL!
My sweet husband saw me oohing and awwwing over the DT cards 
and somehow found out the where/when/how and ordered it for me ~
and it was in my stocking Christmas morning ♥
Yes - he's a keeper!

AND, today it's getting a debut on my blog!
I created this card by stamping the puppy and kitten in the pet bed first,
then masking it off to stamp a puppy on one side, kitten on the other.
After coloring the entire card,
I restamped the little bed on designer paper and cut/glued it to the card.
Lastly, I stamped the matching sentiment and added some corner banners.

You, too, can play along with this week's challenge!
Simply link up your card to your blog/linky or a gallery and 

use the codeword CCEE1804 and we'll stop by to visit!

If you'd like to see what the rest of the DT has created,
you can see those cards here.

Thanks for your visit today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
