New Puppy


Hello hello!  We had a lovely visit with some cousins from the US this weekend who I haven't seen since I was about 14!  It was wonderful to catch up and share lots of laughs and good food.  I also found some time to spend in the Craft Cave which always makes for a good weekend.  ;)  


A lady at work asked for a new puppy card for a friend and this design works perfectly for the latest CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use 2 circles.  I saw this idea for using two hearts to create a bone shape on someone's blog ages ago and cannot for the life of me remember who it was.  (If it was you let me know so I can give you proper acknowledgment!)   


Cardstock:  (Kraft, Rustic Cream) PTI, (Early Espresso, Certainly Celery) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Background images) Woodware USA, (Paw Prints from With Sympathy:  Loss of a Pet) PTI, (Sentiment from Baby) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Punch:  (2" circle) Marvy Uchida
Die:  (Nesties Standard Circles Large) Spellbinders, (Heart Prints) PTI

This is too clever. I'll have to remember this one--you never know when someone will be adding a furry friend to the family.

Hearts for dog bone = brilliant! Such a perfect card for a new puppy. (Have to remember this the next time my brother adds ANOTHER dog to his menagerie. :P)
