And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

National Puppy Day!

Hello friends!  Today is special for all dog lovers out there...it's National Puppy Day!  Of course I've been trying to convince my DH that we need a new puppy, but he insists that one golden retriever at a time is enough.  Now, I ask you...is one golden retriever greeting you at the door or snuggling at your feet really ever enough?  Since I'll not be getting a new puppy today, at least I can stamp one!

Creative nugget:  Doggie paw prints were randomly stamped over the card base.  Regular distress inks were sponged on mixed media paper, then the same colors of Oxide inks were sponged through the a stencil and spritzed with a little water to create the background for the doggie image.  My Misti Tool and Versafine Black Onyx ink were used to stamp the golden retriever image and the sentiment from the Puppy Love stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Grass was drawn with a Copic Marker and some hearts with bling were added to finish the card. The layout for my card was inspired by the Fusion Challenge.
The sentiments and images from the Puppy Love stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps are perfect for creating a card for National Puppy Day.


Of course nothing beats the real thing...

From this...
...to this!

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by on National Puppy Day...be sure to hug a dog today!

Hugs,

The sentiment is so true. I'd give up my jewelry for my beagles any day. Nothing is nicer than their unconditional love. This is a great card! Love how you did the background, too!
