A Sillyosaurus

What do you call a dinosaur that is terrible at driving a car?
   Tyrannosaurus Wrecks.

What do you call a blind dinosaur?

What do you call a scared tyrannosaurus?
   A nervous rex.

Hee hee . . . You like my riddles? I got a million of 'em, but they're so bad they're extinct.

How about this instead . . . isn't this little guy a cutie?

Doodle Gardens

I'm insanely enraptured by him and the other two new Doodle Gardens images the My Favorite Things team is unveiling today. So adorable!

Doodle Garden I'm Raptor Round Your Finger

Do those scallops across the middle of the card look like scaly Dinosaur skin? I created dinosaur skin with the Simply Scallops Medium Die-namic cut from Nightshift Blue card stock and run through an embossing folder.

That little square button in the cloud is from a package of the Nightshift Blue buttons. There are tons of different shapes and sizes to a package of buttons – so fun!

Here's the inside of the card.

Doodle Garden's I'm Raptor Round Your Finger

This little dinosaur is so cute. I just stamped him on Whip Cream card stock with the new, juicy Black Licorice ink, and without even coloring him with markers or pencils, he's still stinkin' cute.

Oh yeah . . .

What do you call a baby dinosaur that won't take a bath?  Egg-stinked.

Doodle Garden I'm Rapture Round Your Finger

The layered hearts on the front of my card are from the new Heart Stax Die-namic, five sizes of hearts from 4-1/4" tall to 3/4" tall.

MFT Die-namics Heart STAX

My Favorite Things is also releasing three new colors in their premium dye inks, Black Licorice, Kraft and Sno Cone. I've never used such a juicy pad of ink – these guys are amazing. I used the Black Licorice ink with this little card, which, of course, coordinates with the card stock, buttons, felt, and ribbon already in he boutique.

Here are the products I used that are available in the boutique today.


Finished size is 5-1/2" by 4-1/4". Other ingredients include Echo Park Paper Co. A Boy's Life pattern paper; Memento Tuxedo Black ink around where the Copic markers were used; which were E25 (hair), E000, E11 and E30 (face); Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and Tiny Mosaic embossing folders.

We'll be back tomorrow with more new stamp sets. It's my favorite of the releases: Pure Innocence! See you then.
