Woof!

Ok, you remember the handsome pup I showed you a couple of days ago.. well here he is with his little girlfriend! lol.. I made this card for fun today and the kennel was cut from the Mickey and Friends cartridge on my Cricut Expression.. The bone was also cut from the same cartridge which I then stamped my sentiment on. I didn't have any mistletoe for them but thought this little heart with Holly looked kinda cute (thanks Jakki x). The punched stars were sent to me from my friend Tina. Thank you! The Paper Nation Dog was already wearing his christmas hat so I used one of the High Hopes Christmas hats for Scotty. These hats are just perfect for using on your other stamps and come in two sizes. They can turn your ordinary stamps into Christmas stamps and a great way to save some pennies. The finishing touch was to add a tiny heart stone to Scotty's collar.

I received the above award yesterday from Jacqueline and Heiki.. Thank you to both of you.. they are pretty spooky! If you haven't visited their blogs before go and pay them a visit as their work is just gorgeous!

The rules are to pass this on to at least 5 people.. Ok.. i'm gonna pick 5 blogs which are new to me and totally inspirational... Check them out..


You can check out the links below to products I have used on my card from Silly Monkey Crafts.
