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 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.

  10. I love this card! Such gorgeous coloring. Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog too! Best, CG

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo
