Doggone it!

Good Morning everyone! I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

This is one of the new Sew Many Stamps I have. I am having a great Sew Many weekend. I received their newsletter Friday night and saw that I was the spotlight blog. It was so exciting. Then I found out I won a stamp during their blog hop!! I never win anything.

I started playing with these stamps and could not figure out how to merge 2 digi's together so I printed them and cut them out. I thought this would be such a cute kids valentine. I went to lunch with a friend of mine a few weeks ago and she was babysitting her 4 year old niece. Her niece loves to stamp and color and sent me a card she made. I think this will be a really cute card to send to her. I had a tough time getting a good picture of this card. I'm not sure why. It looks dull on my computer and IRL it is really bright.

My card fits the following challenges.

Sew Many - Red, Silver, Black Valentine - I was going to use their freebee for this challenge but I saw so many beautiful cards with it and I couldn't come up with something different so I decided to go with the dog.

Totally Gorjuss - Sketch - I thought this sketch was perfect for this image

Raise the Bar - Hearts. I love my little heart punch. You can add to cards without taking up alot of space

Stamping for the Weekend - Valentine - I like making valentines that are not traditional.

Stamp Something
- Love - I love kids and I hope my friends niece loves this.

Crazy for Challenges - Valentine - I think this would be the perfect valentine for any kid who loves animals.

C.R.A.F.T. - Love - The little dog looks like he needs some love.

Charisma - Love - If a card puts a smile on someone's face, which I hope this does, then I have sent some love their way.

Paperplay Challenges - Love Notes - Sending a little "love" to a child makes me smile.

Creative Card Crew - Valentine - Kids valentines are the best! I think they appreciate them more than adults.

KL Stamping - Paper Tole - I double printed the doghouse, dog and name plate. I am not the greatest at cutting things out but I like the way this came out. I like challenges that "challenge" me.

Thank you for stopping by. I love reading all your comments. If you like my childs Valentine let me know.

CS: SU Real Red, Black, Silver
STAMPS: Sew Many
MISC: Dinami Ribbon, MM Brads, Cuttlebug picture corners, Cuttlebug embossing folders

I will do a tutorial in one of the next newsletters on combing stamps- I'm sure there are a lot that don't know how and I have a few new releases coming up that will need this tutorial.

Yippee Peggy! Your card is cute! I will not tell Christine it is coming, she is going to be so excited. Your coloring is so much better than hers, she is into the monotone-as you may have noticed.
