ABC’s Blog Hop ~ I

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

ABC's Blog HopFor this hop we will be featuring the letter “I”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “I” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from MARIE GOETZ’S Blog  then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Linda’s blog HERE.

I love IRIS FOLD cards and decided to use this for my “I” element.  Since I am a veterinarian I am drawn to animal related artwork.  I also know there is an unfortunate need for sympathy cards.  I had a reminder  this past week with the passing of one of our family members. So in Neeko’s memory I designed these cards.

Malamute Cards

I am very involved with Alaskan Malamute rescue in my state, in fact I have been on the board now for five years.  One of my fellow board members is always coming up with great fundraising ideas.  When she saw the sympathy cards I designed for our organization her wheels were turning.  She asked me to create 100 cards that she would take to the Malamute Nationals in October.  So I have been a busy bee trying to make the 100 cards and  manage a now one year old.  I completed them yesterday.  Here are a couple of the the designs.

I designed these to emulate the show ribbons. Inside the card is stamped with “wishing you congratulations”.

You can see I tried to represent some of the variety of colors the malamute coat.

This design is a waterfall card. The squares are revealed as you pull down on the tab. The squares are a bone, bowl, “its a dog’s life” and then it says “woof it’s your birthday.”



I hope the cards are popular and works out to be a good fundraiser for the Malamute rescue.
