... so many challenges!!

Hello everybody,

Thank so much for stopping by to visit today. I have made a very simple card today which I am using for a number of different challenges. I do not do that very often but it just happens that they all share a similar theme so here goes.

I am using the Mojo Monday sketch #435 which you can see here.

I am using this card for the following challenges, in addition to the Mojo Monday. Pink & Main Challenge #6, One Crazy Stamper February challenge and Simon Says Stamp Love and Hearts theme. Whew! That is a lot of challenges!

My card starts with an ivory card base over which I have added a piece of pattern paper from my overflowing stash. You would think that it would have begun to diminish by now, but alas, no! I have run this paper through an embossing folder with paw prints and bones on it. I am sorry but I have no idea who made it as there is no name on it and I have had it for ages.

I have used the Pink & Main stamp set Hot Dog for my focal image and the sentiments. I stamped the little cutie with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured him with Watercolour pencils. I added a dot of silver Sharpie marker for the dog tag. I then fussy cut him out.

He is matted on a beautiful heart cut with Spellbinders Lace Hearts die. I have popped up both the heart and the puppy. 

The wee bone at the bottom is cut from My Favorite Things die set Pet Accents.

Super easy card and this is going to be the Valentines card for my DH. I tell you, I am a sucker for a cute puppy stamp as I have two of the live versions myself, my two yellow Labrador Retrievers.

Thanks again for taking the time to visit my blog and leaving me your comments. I appreciate each and every one of them. Have a terrific day.
