New Dies

Good Morning Ladies,
Wow did we have the rain yesterday. But I am happy to say that my new gutters did the trick...all that rain and the basement is dry!

So I went to Joan's Gardens a week or so ago and bought some new dies by cherry lynn designs. I am diggin on these dies. They are so fun to work with.

Here is a card using one of the new dies....

This is a screen door die. It comes with two pieces of screen. But now I can see I will be headed down to the hardware store to get more screen. LOL I used white wash paper to cut the door out of. I gave it a light sanding. The dog is from inky antics. As well as the saying on the tag. I used a background stamp around the door, but as you can see I will have to take some time to perfect this technique. The screen door die also cuts a cat from the center to of the door. So no paper is wasted there. I'm telling you that you need to check out  She has the coolest stuff!

Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog

Yes real screen, and yes I colored the dog with Prisma color pencils and gamsol.
