Muddy Paws!

Hello! The kids are back to school (more about that in a bit), so I got a little stamping done! I had this idea to make a tile floor with the Scor-Buddy on white and then stamp lots of random tracks all over with the paw print to look like the "Basket Buddies" puppy tracked in mud, now that's ruff to mop up! I thought about misting the paw print with some water but I thought that might get a little too messy looking. Maybe later!

Originally I was just going to have the paw prints and the sentiments, no puppy, like he was off hiding somewhere, but the card needed a little something, so I had to add him back in, along with the "Spring Basket"! (Pretty bold just sitting there grinning, oblivious to the mess he's made!) Make sure to color his feet nice and muddy!

Cardstock is Pure Luxury White, Chocolate Brown and Tan Leather, and ink is Memento Rich Cocoa. I also some tied some knots in a double strand of hemp to add some texture to the basket.

Have a great day! Don't let the mud get you down!


  1. Melanie, this came out so cute!! Perfect floor and love the muddy prints...they look so realistic...LOL! And the muddy-pawed puppy is so cute and clever in the hemp adorned basket!

  2. Way cute card Mel! I love using the Score Pay for em/debossing! Such a real issue in REAL life!

  3. This card is SO Adorable, Melanie!! I love the cute cheeky puppy, the great tile idea, and the hemp knots around the basket.
