Three of a Kind



It looks like my blog has gone to the dogs!!  Dog card yesterday and another one today!

This is a very special Valentine's Day card for a friend of mine (the same one that got me interested in stamping).  She has three of these little precious pups - two red doxies and one black one!!!

Marilyn (One Stamping Fool) e-mailed me a couple of weeks ago and pointed me in the direction of where I could get this set of stamps (There She Goes).  No way could I resist that!  Since we have our own little red doxie, Rambo, I knew I'd be using this set so much.    This is a CASE of a card I saw here - but I did change a couple of things about it.  The stitching was going to be some straight stitching - HA!  No way can I sew in a straight line good - so added some of my "crazy stitching" instead!  

Thanks for stopping by.............and have a great weekend
Lynn

Cute Valentine's card Lynn. What better than giving a Valentine's card to a friend that has doxies. My Dad had a red one too and she doted on him like nothing else was possible.

And you too enjoy your weekend

Haha! It must be a doxie day, cuz I made a doxie card too! Gotta love these little doggies with their hearts and stripes, and the zig-zag stitching reminds me of how our doxie used to dart around the yard all the time with endless energy! Super cute card! Arf Arf! :)

Lynn, these little doggies are adorable and I'm sure this card will bring much laughter with it. I love your stitching. It brings more life to the card rather than straight lines. Way to go girl. Bracing for 26-32 inches of snow at last count. Right now only a couple have fallen, but the worse it to be between midnight and Sat. morning. all set though. Stocked up on everything.

Tammy said...

OMGosh this is ADORABLE Lynn!! I love those pups! Fantastic design and your crazy stitching is perfect!!
Hugs, Tammy

Oh my! Those doggies are just way too cute. love the placement of each one on your card, too. Very pretty!

Tammy said...

OH wow Lynn. If I saw this card on someone else's blog, I'd have to email you to check it out! Your card is 100% cuteness!

Yes you have gone to the dogs, but oh, such a beautiful trip. Love these little guys...so cute. How wonderful you found a stamp to match your Rambo. Dtr has fostered greys, and those are difficult to find (if not impossible). I have some Lab head stamps (friend has a lab), and it was one of the hardest I've colored - to-date - trying to get friend's dog colors done properly. This is so cute. Your friend will LOVE this one. Liked your crazy sewing too. Really trims up the card swell. Hugs

NanaConnie said...

Loving that "crazy" stitching, Lynn! I can't even get that onto my cards. Adorable little doxies and I love that you did red on a white card. Perfect!

Melissa said...

Crazy stitching is MUCH more interesting!!! :) This is dog-gone cute! Thanks for the smile today!!!

Darlene said...

WEll if this isn't just too dog gone CUTE!!! Straight stitching is over rated, this freestyle stitching has so much more character and interest! Those doxies are adorable. What a great card!

Bonnie said...

Ha! I can't sew straight either. It's a wonder we were able to wear all the clothes I used to sew for my family. I'm kinda glad that material is so expensive so I have an excuse not to sew anymore. Your doxies are adorable! Perfect coloring and I love their little sweaters! What a fun Valentine!

Marilyn said...

How cute is this? My gosh Lynn, you've created a fab card here with these cute little guys. Love the design and your 'crazy' stitching - that red stitching is the perfect embellishment for this.
