My Buddy....Buster!

Wahoooo!  We're closing in on the weekend!  It's supposed to feel like Fall this weekend and I can't wait.  It's my favorite time of the year! (ahem.....I might have mentioned that once or twice....)

A few months ago I came up with a cute little holder for those little anti bacterial bottles they have at Bath and Body Works.  I wanted to make one into a cute gift for my secret pal at work since we were all fighting that "creepin' crud" that the students were bringing in to us.  :-)  It's a great design (if I do say so myself) simply because it can be made for any occasion in any color combo you'd like.  The one I made for today's post is another puppy pal that reminds me of my friend, Robin's pooch, Buster.  I love Buster!  So Buster....this one's for you.  Here's the front view.....

The base is cut from Early Espresso card stock and has accent pieces of Real Red and the plaid piece is from one of the new Designer Series Paper Packs called "Letters To Santa".  It really shows the versatility of all of the DSP and you can see the uses for them are limitless.

Here's a view from the side....The ladies in Bath and Body Works are always asking if they can "help me" when I'm shopping and I kindly tell them that I'm making my choices so the colors will coordinate with my card stock and DSP.  LOL!!  I've gotten a few strange looks for sure.  But I know you, my stampin' friends, understand perfectly!

A view with the flap opened up....

You can decorate the the inside too....add a greeting or anything you'd like.  I left mine simple for now so I have the option of personalizing it when I decide who I'll give it to.  Here's the other side.....


Buster is made from Very Vanilla card stock and the edges are sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.  The ears for this sweet pooch are made using the Build A Blossom Punch.  I just curled them a bit with my bone folder.  The ribbon is one of my new favorites....the quilted ribbon in the Holiday Mini.  LOVE IT!  "Get Well Wishes" is from another "staple" here in my stamp room....Teeny Tiny Wishes.

If you'd like the FREE TUTORIAL for this project, just send me and email or leave me a comment here on my blog and I'll be happy to forward it to you.  One really great thing about this project is that it's a perfect way to use your scraps you've been saving.  WOOT!

Check out all the goodies at my ONLINE STORE.  Put on you fuzzy slippers....grab a schmoodgy blanket and a cup of tea and shop to your heart's content.

Wishing you a magical day!
