Puppy Love

Happy Valentines Day!

Can You Digi It? is celebrating Valentines Day with a challenge that calls for us to show our love of puppies. The store has some awesome digi images of puppies - so many that I had a tough time deciding which image to use. I decided to try Sleeping Frenchie by Carlas Creatures. Isn't this little puppy so cute? I used some digital paper that was free from Squigglefly
for my background. I wanted a sentiment that expressed how special dogs are to us, and I remembered SARK has some really touching quotes about dogs (I love how she views life). I printed out the quote when I printed out my digital pawprint backgroud and my puppy image. To finish up, I added a heart button and some twine. What a fun card to make.

Check out the puppy images in the store. If you are new to digital stamps, there is even a free puppy image in the store! Bu if you really love dogs, you will want to check out the dog images! There are dogs with hearts and purses, Sharpeis, a bunch of Boston Terriers, Rottweiler, and so much more. Some of the images are already shaded like the one I used (I didn't have to do a thing to it). Can you tell I love the dog images???

I have had some awesome dogs in my life - some were mine, some were my parents', and even one belongs to my daughters' boyfriend (he has a bulldog named Chewy that weighs a 100 lbs, slobbers everywhere, and I wish he was mine!!!). I don't have any dogs as my husband is so allergic to pet dander, so I have to visit other people's puppies to get some puppy love (good thing my parents live next door). I do have a cow named Allie (yes, I name my cows after my favorite people) that lets me pet her and she comes when I call her - but she only does it if I have a hand full of cow treats.

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day! Love can take many forms - it can be romantic love, the love of a friend, the love you have for family, and even puppy love (or cows if you don't have puppies). Hugz!!!


  1. Awwwww, what a sweet doggie, Nancy. He couldn't be an cuter. Your paw bg is perfect with the sentiment.
    I don't have a dog now but they are the greatest....so loving.

    Have a sweet Valentine's Day!

  2. Nancy,
    I just love your card! That dp is a perfect compliment to the adorable immie!

  3. So very sweet :) Love the layout with the super backing paper and the image looks great!

  4. Cute card, Nancy :) Love the paw print BG. Your description of Chewy made me laugh - must say the slobber gets to me too much so I'll stick to cats LOL! Glad you have "adopted" pets you can snuggle to your hearts content and of course Allie :) Happy Valentine's Day!!

  5. Nancy, such a sweet puppy, but then what baby anything isn't sweet! Love the background too. Your Allie is stunning, with mud on her face and in a beautiful formal dress, what a beautiful color on her too, that's the dress, not the mud!!


  6. What a cute sleeping puppy! I love the background paper with all the paw prints too! I miss my dogs every time I see another one :)

  7. Awww . . . such a sweet puppy card. I hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day with your loved ones, Nancy!

  8. How adorable! This is such a sweet card to give to an animal lover. Love the sentiment too.

  9. Awww! Looks like one of Martha Stewart's dogs, also Frenchies! Love that pawprint background, Nancy.
