A Double Doxie Christmas

A doxie and a doxie.....This first one is from Newton's Nook and the set of stamps is called Holiday Hounds.   I used a Sheena Douglas snowflake embossing folder and lots of white!!  I wanted that cute image to really pop out on the card because I love it so much.  I also added some torn paper in slightly different color white for the 'snow' on the ground, some punched out snowflakes with gems in the center, and then of course, the sentiment.  Don't you just adore the look on this little guys face.

The second doxie.......well, is Rambo of course!  Maybe they're brothers....or brothers and sisters.  No matter since I love both of them!   I may have posted this picture of the little man before but if I did, you just get to see it again!


My card is for the Inky Paws sketch challenge at Newton's Nook.  I'd also like to enter it in Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).



Thanks for stopping by........

Both Doxies are precious. Love your card and the snow looks great as does the embossing. Rambo, of course, is just a delight to look at so you can post this as many times as you like and I will never get tired of looking at him. Something tells me he does not yet need that sweater. LOL Enjoy the day.

Both of these are as cute as can be. Love that embossing folder you used and a great design with the pops of color. Rambo looks so very handsome and looks like he loves wearing his sweater.

First of all, Rambo totally rock his red sweater! And he is so adorably cute! Secondly, your card is perfect for a Christmas card. I love the pop of of red and greens from the designer papers. And that doxie from Newton's Nook is just as cute!

Love your Doxie card and Rambo!! Each doxie is a cutie pie!! Rambo? He doesn't look like a Rambo! LOL!! When I was a teenager I used to babysit for a family that had one and they named him Dino! Love those big names for little dogs! Back to your card! I love the embossed background and the torn layers of snow and who doesn't love Newton's Nook stamps!!

SARN said...

Lovely card . . . and that's another embossing folder to go on the wishlist! You naughty girl - making me want something else when I have LOADS of stuff already!

Cute doxie photo too.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Mary Marsh said...

this is such a cute card Lynn and I love the doxie image

NanaConnie said...

I don't think you've showed us this pic of Rambo before now, Lynn, and he's absolutely precious in his "Christmas" sweater. What a bright eyed boy he is. :-D Love the card, especially the way you did the snow on the ground. Very creative. Wonderful use of that sketch.

Bonnie said...

It's good to see Rambo again and he looks so dapper in his sweater! Love the card too! They definitely must be related!

Monica said...

Both doggies are so cute. Super colouring on the first one. The second one, ah, I love his eyes. So full of expression and love. Yes, the doggie on a card has a very benign and angelic expression.
Hope Jim is getting better... Sending healing energy.

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

Cute card, and tell Rambo thanks for reminding me to get Della a sweater! Duh! This is my first time with a small, short haired pooch.

Lynn McAuley said...

I am loving this fabulous Rambo inspired holiday card, Lynn!! It is precious!

MaryH said...

Just too cute for words! Love the doxie on the card, with his little festive sweater, and brilliant idea to make the snow hill as you did. Also very much liking the ef, and striped paper with the snowflake border. Now Rambo is just cuter than the image,(even with the smug expression on the paper dog's face!) with his pretty sweater. I hope this was made when the weather was cold! Love his taste in dress! TFS & Hugs

Marilyn said...

Oh my, isn't Rambo stylin'? He looks good and he knows it too!
Love the card and those little pops of red and green against all the white. This little fella has that same 'look at me, aren't I fine' look on his face that Rambo has.

lauren bergold said...

well NO WONDER you're sooooo great with that stamp, you've got the model living right in your house!!! LOVE both "versions" of the xmas doxie, lol!!! ♥♥♥

Shelly Schmidt said...

So dang fun! Love how much this doxie looks like yours- maybe twins to boot! Fab card- love your snowflake border too. OK- so when does it get cold enough there for your dog to need a sweater???

Jennifer Jackson said...

This is so adorable! I just love the fun festive colors and all the layers of snow! Good thing that doxie has a sweater to keep him warm. And your doxie, Rambo does too! I LOVE IT! He's adorable! Thanks for playing along with our Inky Paws Challenge at Newton's Nook Designs.
