Fly a kite Congrats

How fun is this? I know this is not my typical style, but I've been feeling bright and cheerful lately so it apparently shows in my creativity! Stamps from Practicing Creativity Designs, supplies from PTI. I used my Copics to color the kites after stamping them on white and cutting them out. I LOVE the clouds in the You're Dandy set...so cute!

On another note, We had a scare here last night. My hubster was out riding his bike and was attacked by a dog that had apparently broken loose from his kennel. He got away and made it home before calling the local police to make sure the dog wouldn't hurt anyone else. The owner came home and got the dog back into its kennel and convinced Animal Control not to take it away. Poor lady was terrified we were going to sue her.
Wanna see my husband's leg? WARNING--GROSS PICTURE!

I was little perturbed that he was bleeding on the carpet while calling the police, but then he lifted up his jeans and I freaked out a bit more! lol
He's off to get a tetanus shot this morning. It's been about 13 years since his last one!

Thanks for stopping by, have a creative day!

Wow, your card is so cute. I love the kites. Well, with all the cute cards you've posted with that set, it is now sold out. I'll have to wait to order it.
OUCH! Your DH leg looks pretty messed up. I hope the dog owner will at least be paying the doctor bill and it doesn't get out of it's kennel again.

Oh my, what a scare. Looks like a nasty bite! On a good note, your card is super cute! I love the kites and your placement of the sentiments!

First, I really LOVE your card!!! Love how you curved the sentiment on the kite strings!! And thank God your husband is OK! My poor little niece was bitten by a dog last year, got it's teeth around her little thigh, she needed hundreds of stitches and she still has some pretty bad scars. Scary!

Bright and happy card! Love the kites and nice way to add the ribbon too! So sorry for your hubby's run in with the dog. Hope he heals well.

Love bright and happy cards! Nice job! I need a cloud stamp. Unfortunately it look like these are sold out! So sorry to hear about your husbands leg. I hope it heals soon.

Ingrid Danvers said...

Oh my....I am sorry for your husband.

Your card is beautiful. I love the bright colors. You have such a great style.

Diane Jaquay said...

OK, I see you didn't curve the sentiment on the kite strings lol! I just read on your post at PTI that you didn't use stamps on this. However it "would" be a great idea to curve a sentiment on a kite string (well, they did it on this paper didn't they?!) so I'll try and remember it (yes, I'm in a crazy mood today ;)

Belinda said...

Fabulous card! LOVE the bright colors -- they make me happy -- and of course, I LOVE the kites! Heh!

And wow, sorry to hear about your DH! That can't be fun for anyone.

Dana....you definitely are making this a useful stamp set!! So much so, that Laurie, Jen and I had to "give in" and buy it yesterday!!! We were thinking of asking you at some point (when we get our sets), of doing a blog hop (small one) with this set! What do you think? :)

Holy cow Dana!! His leg will be sore for a while! Hope the tetanus shot went ok!!

Laurie said...

Definately keep an eye on that dog bite. Dog's mouths are really dirty and you don't want to let that get infected. I have seen many get infected!!!
