Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop - The Adventures of Benji

Hello and welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop for June.

This month we have the cutest challenge of The Adventures of Benji. Benji is Angie McKenzie's gorgeous dog and he is inspiring our projects for this challenge. Isn't he so handsome. I have had the pleasure of chatting online to Angie as she has walked Benji and I love hearing about their adventures.

Here is an image of the Around the World on Wednesday Crew and where we all are around the world. It is such an honour to join this crew each month for a challenge. It is also always fun!

When I thought about this challenge I decided to create a card representing where I take my dog Maggie for her favourite walk. I am sure Benji and Angie would love to walk along beside us.  Our favourite walk is on a  path in my little town that has beautiful trees beside it and views to the escarpment. Such a lovely relaxing walk and stunning scenery. 

The meandering Meadows Designer Series Paper had a beautiful scene almost matching my view when walking my dog and I have simply created a card usig that piece of DSP. Above is a superimposed picture of Benji looking into the scenery of this much fun!

The card front was created by gluing a piece of the DSP to a Pecan Pie card Base. On the piece of leftover DSP I stamped on the reverse side using a sentiment from the Perennial Postage stamp set in early Espresso ink and glued it to a piece of Early Espresso card stock before gluing it to the card front.

That is it! A very simple card with such a pretty scene. I believe these scenic pieces of DSP are as easy to create with as a card kit. You need the DSP, some card stock, ink, glue and a sentiment. We all have that right!! It does not always have to be layers and layers or lots of colouring, especially when working with this beautiful DSP.


Below are  pictures of my dog Maggie walking on our favourite path. Maggie is a Groodle and is currently 16 months old. She loves a walk!!
