It must be love,doggone it


At Craft Your Passion this week the theme is ♥My Valentine♥.We have the fabulous BugabooStamps as our sponsor too. Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve featured the cute Puppy Love – heart string by Bugaboo Stamps  and coloured him with Copic Ciao Markers,adding white gel pen highlights plus 3D Crystal Lacquer to his nose and heart dangling from his tail.I made a shaped card for him by cutting out a kraft card blank with a Go Kreate die.I originally bought a small sized set in a sale and was lucky to find these bigger ones that I regretted not getting when I returned to my local craft warehouse 🙂 I cut more hearts from some Basic Grey paper,corrugated card,another kraft card blank and some hessian (burlap).The tag was a sticker from the same set as the paper.I just stamped the sentiment adhered it to another piece of kraft and trimmed around it to create the border.I added a heart shaped brad along with some faux suede strips.The red being some I’d bought from The Works and the tan cut from an old fringed belt my DD1 donated for use in my cardmaking 🙂 I had intended for this to be for my DH but I just know when Feb 14th gets closer the kiddies are going to want to include our dawgy in all the love  so I think this one will be good enough for her too…LOL

How could anybody not love this face?

Christmas 2012 038 Or this nosey girl.LOL Christmas 2012 010

These pics were taken at Christmas and she was just checking in case there was anything for her in my DD1’s Santa Sack.In the first pic she is posing in her new collar – see she didn’t get missed out.She’s so obliging when there’s a photo opportunity 😀
