Lacey (named for her Floral Romance, Petal Pink, Vellum fur) was getting jealous, and causing trouble. She said I had been paying too much attention to the Happy Tails dog, and wanted to be the focal point of my next project.

My next project was Ann’s great sketch for Paper Players, so I thought Lacey could be “any shape.”


Since Lacey’s fur was from the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper,  wouldn’t it be good to use other paper from the group to coordinate with her? She agreed. YAY!

We chose a light green, leafy print for the larger rectangle, and a dark green print for the smaller rectangle. For the background, there was a nice piece of Sahara Sand wood, tinged with green, that would blend with a Sahara Sand card base.


Lacey wanted to sit on a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock, but only if it was embossed with Subtle Texture. This led to giving the Subtle Texture treatment to all the paper. And, believe it or not, Lacey wanted to be rolled through the Big Shot to to get the treatment also. She said it hurt quite a bit, but it was worth it. Whew!


Lacey found what she wanted to say in the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, “a little hello.” I stamped it in Mossy Meadow ink on Whisper White cardstock, and used a Merry Christmas die for cutting. After I found a Share What You Love Artisan pearl to put next to the sentiment, Lacey was very happy. I try!

Lacey’s final request was for butterflies. She promised not to hurt them, as long as I let them fly around her. So, I used the Butterfly Duet Punch to cut them from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, and she is keeping her word, so far.
