Wags 'n Whiskers - Valentines with a twist!

The Wags 'n Whiskers challenge is back with our first challenge of 2010! For our challenge this week we would love to see your Valentines creations but with a twist... NO RED or at the very least red should be kept to the minimum!

Once again, one lovely participant will win a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamp of your choice.

For my card this week I have used Puppy Love. This cute puppy couple is Lacey's sweet yorkie Princess with my Aunt's handsome Golden Retriever Barley - see below. Not only is this a sweet image for Valentines but would also be perfect for Anniversary cards too! Princess and Barley have been coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I kept the card design quite simple and the dp is from the new Basic Grey Sugar Rush 6x6" pad. I again cut some raffia lace and added some co-ordinating flowers and brads.

Here is Barley Bear as my Aunt calls him. You may remember that my Nan, Grandad and Aunt moved to Portugal last year. Miss you loads!!!

Picture of the girls with Barley.

Sorry it's so fuzzy but pic was taken on my mobile
