Lovin' Those Pups


This is a quick little card to give to Jim - just because.  Since I dropped from the number 1 spot to number 2 spot around here when we got Rambo I figure he'll like it!!  Ah, such is life I guess!  He'll probably hang it on the wall so he can look at it every morning when he wakes up!

This actually was for a Retro Sketches challenge - last week.  As always I'm about a day late and dollar short.  I used a stamp set and die from Taylored Expressions, sponged in a few clouds, added a snip of "grass" and twine, popped up a heart covered in the Wink pen, and then mounted it on Kraft card stock.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets) and Crafty Sentiments (love).

Hope everyone has a great weekend........and thanks for stopping by.............
Lynn

This is SO cute! I immediately though of you when I saw this set on TE! Love your design and you always make the best cloud backgrounds.

Cute little Dachshund and card too. If the real pup is as cute as the one on the card you are in trouble. LOL. Playful pups can be a huge distraction.

I know what your mean about household rank. I have a Pickles cartoon on my fridge which says, "You like dogs, don't you,grandpa?" Grandpa says, "I've always loved dogs. They've been my truest friends. I could never be happy without a dog by my side." Grandma walks in and he adds, "Wives are great, too!"

Your card is sensational, Lynn!! I know your husband will love it!

Well if you are #2 then I must be #3 in my house. I do know that both Molly and Daisey get more back rubs than I do. LOL This card came out darling. Great sky work and the little touch of twine with the red heart really makes everything else pop. Have a wonderful day.

I have often told Matt & my grown children if I didn't have my Lou to love on I would be meddling in their business all the time and hugging & loving on them way too much! We all agree it is better that I have the dog!

Hugs,

Very cute card! I'm #2 to Ella, she's a hand raised cat that we adopted as a kitten. She thinks she's a human.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh my! I love this. This is a great way to use that ever-so-evil kraft cardstock. It is a fun card and fun card design.

I made a card with kraft too and it actually isn't bad. I'll be putting it up tomorrow unless I decide to put something else up.... it's a crazy world. lol

And yeah... laughed at how you are no longer the favorite. Ah... it happens. At least you got bumped out by a living creature and not, say... a pizza!

Diane said...

Super cute Lynn and what a name for a dachsund " Rambo" !! Thanks for sharing your fab card with us at Crafty Sentiments Designs !!

hugs Diane xx

NanaConnie said...

I absolutely love it, Lynn! A perfect Rambo. Great simple design and your clouds always inspire me to try one more time, never give up, I'll get good clouds someday. lol I'm better with dogs and cats than clouds.

MaryH said...

Aw, sweet little Rambo. Gotta check on this stamp, since we have a Doxie grand now. Love the way you have this sweetie perched in the upper corner, against the kraft and the larger heart popped out from the sentiment. Rambo will love it as much as Jim will. TFS & Hugs
