A Doggie Valentine

A Doggie Valentine

A Doggie Valentine
My doggie friend Rosie hasn't been up to sniff lately ... So I made her a Valentine. Here's the front, above. I like the way the back came out too, see below. The upside-down hearts and paw prints  look as if they're raining down.

My kitties, Chevy and Lotus, make all my cards in exchange for treats -- but they insist that every card feature their portraits on the back. It's so fun to watch their little paws handle the stamps and the glue applicator!

Here's what I used to make this card:
The Pet Stack cardstock pad, by DCWV
Tag Die, Sizzix, Tags Scallop Combo #2
Heart Die: Memory Box, Grand Heart
Heart Stamp: Memory Box, Gingham Heart
Notebook paper, torn and distressed with spring green Copic Markers
Flowers and Bakers Twine, Michaels Stores
Stiching: My adorable Singer Featherweight, c. 1949!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges (yes, there are card and/or layout challenges!!!). How much fun is that?
