Thinking of You

Happy stormy Wednesday night! The day was very nice. The first day this week that it didn't rain most of the day but tonight the storms are heading for us once more. We did get our tomatoes, peppers, zucchini and cucumbers in so I'm glad to have those out of our living room window. And we fenced them for the first time, hoping that it might deter the deer from eating everything.
I REALLY like the card I made tonight. I love inked backgrounds. I think they are just beautiful and I am so envious of those who do it so well. I'm still learning and need more practice. But here's a card with an inked background; one of my favorite techniques.

I just love this cute little dog image from the Dog Tales set at  Beccy's Place. I used the pre-colored image. I paired him with a sentiment that I printed off long ago so I'm not sure which company it's from. I'm going to have to be more careful when I print these digis. I used the Simon Says Stitched Slopes and Hills die to cut out the sentiment. Then I popped up the cute pup with Scotch foam tape.
I masked the moon off first and then inked the background with Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers distress ink. Then I masked the background and inked the moon with Scattered Straw distress ink. I think it's adorable! I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch as inspiration:

I am entering these challenges:

Well, I am going to sign off as the storm is getting worse and I'm afraid the electric will go out. It might be early to bed tonight. I'll catch you later!

Wonderful card! Caught my eye immediately. Great set! WE need rain badly here...please send some our way. My veggie plants are very happy, but they are thirsty. You did a great job with the background, as good as anyone so be very happy.

Your card is adorable Donna, I love that sentiment! You did a great job creating the sponged background, the lines are so nice and crisp. I also like the addition of the stitched hill in the background. Love it!
