"Funny Dog for Christmas" from November GD Laurie Schmidt

Laurie Schmidt here from Stamping Up North with a fun project to share with you today. I'm so happy to be guest designing for the month of November here at Cheery Lynn!

One of my favorite things about Cheery Lynn dies, besides how well they cut, are the fun, whimsical dies that they always come out with. The Funny Dog has become one of my favorites! One look at that adorable face and you can't help but smile.

I don't know about you, but every dog in our family gets a present for Christmas. Sometimes it's a bone or a bag of treats, and quite often a new toy...but there is always something under the tree for them!

I used the cute presents from the Whimsical Christmas set for my funny dog to hold in his paws. For those of you that are big fans of the Witch's Laundry and Santa Laundry dies like I am, this is a must have!! The stocking line in this set is adorable too.

I backed him on the center of the Mexican Tile die, and added the bow and holly from the Christmas Wreath set.

He's so cute that I made another card with him...this time he's on the Sled die having some fun in the snow. 

His hat is from the Santa's Laundry die, and his bow tie from the Merry Christmas Gift Envelope set. Which by the way, I have been using a lot! I love tiny things and this set has such fun mini dies. I used the Merry Christmas sign and snowflakes from it also.

The background trees are actually from the new Shaker dies that the design team has been posting about this month. They are awesome for shakers of course, but I have been using them for all kinds of things! The inside tree that is left out after cutting is such a fun shape,too. They also look great inlaid. 
Here's a quick view:

Today I shared just a couple of ideas using the Funny Dog die. I also cut him out in brown, and also in white inlaid with black. So cute and so versatile, I know I will be reaching for him (or her) often! 

Have a great day everyone!
