 Happy Tuesday Folks!
Did you all have a great weekend with lots of crafting? Mine was not what I expected as I'm having a hard time adjusting back to being home after my vacation in Holland, but I'll get there....soon I hope! I missed seeing everyone's creations and not being by the computer but I'm definately looking forward to getting back to visiting you all again and catching up on what's been happening while I was away. Did you all notice that my background disappeared while I was gone? Maybe you're letting me know it was time to change it!!! So I did....this won't be a permanent one but at least it looks better than just a white background with the little square box from photobucket!!! LOL

My card this week is made using this adorable image of the two puppies from Stamp and Creates Wags n Whiskers called Puppy Love. Thank you Pricilla for this RAK...I love this stamp.
I colored the image in copics (my coloring is off this week so don't look too close, LOL), and added some sparkles to the smallest puppy. I also used the gorgeous stencil I won over at Layers of Color on the corners and it fits so well with the DP, don't you think? There is some simple straight stitching and the addition of the little paw brads to complete the look.
I hope you will join us this week at Midnight Madness and don't forget to check out my DT sisters creations.
Thanks so much for stopping by
