A Dog Gone for this Birthday Card

Puppies are popping up around the Stampendous weekly theme and the design team is happy that this week is finally here! If you recall a few weeks ago we shared projects with the Kitties Stamp Set and we heard that you all wanted to see the puppies! Well, now it time!

I had too much fun pulling out supplies here and there for this card, but just you know it's possible I might have been carried away in the process! LOL

Even if I did, you can see that down to basics of this card there is a dog stamp, a pop up card die and a sentiment. Everything else is a choice to add it in or leave it out!

I'm hopping with two other teammies today. Please stop by and say hi, give them some comment love and then hop on over to the other event happening on the Stampendous blog with Linnie Blooms!

Now for the details on today's card.

  1. I love the doggie tongue on this pup! So cute! I also love the background that you created with the leaves from the tree. They do make great bushes.

  2. Yap! This is an adorable card!! Nobody can say that this is ruff on the eyes because they would be barking up the wrong tree! LOVELOVELOVE it! TFS!

  3. Crossing my fingers I can learn to do this with colored pencils-all the cards this week have me smiling. Bookmarked so I can come back again.

  4. What a fabulous card Janelle! Your colouring is amazing :-)

  5. Love the card. Your coloring is fantastic.

  6. Darling puppy. The pop up fits his lively personality to a tee. Perfect match. Can you send this card tome so I will have it handy next time I miss a birthday?
