Postage Stamp Card

I made this card for one of the doctor's birthdays this week. He loves to collect postage stamps and I thought this one would be ideal for him. It's an older stamp I bought years ago at a local stamp convention. I stamped it on watercolor paper using Timber Brown Staz-on ink, then colored it using my Aquapainter and various water-based inks.
To accent the "postage" edge, I punched each indentation with my 1/16" hole punch before cutting along the outer line. The chocolate chip layer was given a quick, easy background by inking randomly with the edge of my ink pad. The chocolate layer as well as the focal piece are adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals. Can you believe I found the twill tape scrap with the linen thread already tied on it? LOL! I save things knowing it's good enough for a future project. Kinda like my mom loves paper scraps! LOL! I get it honest, I guess.
Greetings from Ohio! Hope you enjoyed today's project. Thanks for stopping by!
This is Jack's favorite hiding place. On this particular day, I had said "Jack. Kennel." and he was found here. Turkey! He likes to hide when he knows it's time to get in his kennel. He chose this spot tonight for a barf zone. Yep, he was eating branches outside and decided to urp up his entire supper right there. What is it with puppies and chewing the oddest things? Kevin could barely stand to hand me a plastic bag, the carpet foam cleaner and some paper towels. He doesn't handle barf very well. LOL! So, momma gets that job. I know, I know...kinda gross, but that's my life right now with puppy antics.
Riley will have a surprise for you on Thursday. What do you think it will be? Leave me a comment and from the names listed, I'll draw a winner who will receive a little goody box full of handmade cards, ribbon and some misc. embellishments. Edited: I'll announce the winner here Thursday after 5pm so you can comment until then!
