Merry Monday #283 - Puppy Time!

Whoo hoo - time for Leanne's Challenge #283 at Merry Monday. She would like to see a puppy on our Christmas cards this week. Isn't the little white pup in the inspiration photo the sweetest?!

I've put a dog image on various cards but never a puppy on a Christmas card. I found the perfect pup on a Stamp & Cut set by Hero Arts.

Supplies: Paper - BoBunny Merry & Bright 6x6, scrap of Authentique yellow
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; Poptone Red Pepper & Green Apple
DCWV Ms Sparkle green card
Stamps - Hero Arts DC220 Fluffy Stockings Stamp & Cut
CL907 Color Layering Wreath (sentiment)
Dies - Hero Arts DI337 Nesting Infinity Oval Dies
My Favorite Thing Blueprints 13, 26 & 23 (retired)
Other - Copic Markers, foam tape, Hero Arts Red Royal ink; red nail head

I love Hero Arts Stamp & Cut sets - they're in the 200s of releases now. I don't have them all but I managed to pick up a few new Christmas sets from last year's catalog. The Fluffy Stockings set has both a puppy and a kitten in stockings - so adorable!! The puppy reminded me of the one in the inspiration photo. I colored him with Copics and decided to feature him on an oval,.rather than try to do a fireplace with mantle. The sentiment came from a Hero Arts set I used a couple weeks ago on this card which included my pup's daddy - LOL. What do you think of the yellow scalloped border? It matches the yellow snowflakes in the paper perfectly so I couldn't resist it.

Hope you have a chance to play along with us this week - can't wait to see your puppy creations! Check out all the sweet Design Team cards, along with challenge details HERE. Thanks for stopping!!

Awwww, sweet pup. Seriously is there anything more wiggly and adorable than a yellow lab or golden retriever pup. Sigh.

Love your layers and the festive feel of those lovely snowflakes and that darling pup hanging out in the sock.
