Hi Sister Stampers!!!! Woo Hoo! Still can't believe we are coming up on our 2nd birthday!!! Yay!!! It seems like we just started our little company and now we are on our 15th Release!!!! Yowza!
For this special release, I chose to share some special friends with you. We've had a lot of great response whenever we have animals in our release images, that I asked (make that begged) my sister for some domestic animals. I really really really wanted a dog image. Let me introduce you to my dog Kiki...
Yikes- that's an old photo of me! Yes, we got our Kikigirl for Christmas the year we got married. I couldn't wait till we bought our own house so I could get my very own dog! I really wanted a red haired daschund. My friend's mom had a long haired red daschund (Pixie) that I just loved to death and really wanted one of my own. So my husband bought Kiki for me for Christmas that year. I don't think you can tell, but I put her in my stocking- that's how small she was!
I call Kiki my first child, cause that's what she is. We had her for about 3 years before my daughter came along....
Then she got grouchy... cause she was no longer the only child! I'll share more about that later...
We found out that Kiki was really an alpha dog. That really made things difficult in the house, because I am the alpha female (just ask my husband), so we battled it out, and I think she finally knows that I'm the boss. (or does she?)
No wonder we are both alpha females.. we are born on the same day!
The thing about Kiki is that she's REALLY REALLY SMART! You can see it in her eyes. She looks into your eyes and tries to figure you out... can I get this person to give me food? Hmmmm, maybe if I try barking... No? Ok let's try giving them the guilt trip by giving them the sad doggie face... She scans the room and her radar can detect who will give up the food the easiest. My mom has to go in another room so that Kiki doesn't cast her spell on her. See how she tilts her head? She's trying to figure out what you are saying...
So this is what happens when Kiki gets a stuffed animal.... Mission Unstuff!
A-ha! Caught in the act!!!!
She knows better than to mess with Daba... she settles on snuggling w/Daba instead.
No matter what type of mischief she gets into, Kiki is still my doggie and I don't know what we'll do without her!
Wow- that was a lot about Kiki, but she is my first child after all... On to the project....
I had done a copic class last month and used Kiki to demonstrate blending to white using your copics. I love that technique and really should use it more often. I decided to keep the card simple since the focus was on coloring.
The reason why I chose this image to name Kiki is because she always tilts her head when she's trying to figure out what you are saying. Especially when she hears key words like "walking", "let's go", etc. She is really asking... "Am I coming too?"
So... time for some Kiki candy! (no not doggie biscuits)... here's all you have to do:
1. Leave a comment on THIS POST by 06/30/13 11:59 HST; and
