This + That


Now how super CUTE is that?!!!!!

I had to ink up the sweet french bulldog image:


I love the look of shaped cards but don't tend to design them...so I decided to challenge myself!

I'm a big fan of scenery cards and the "Here + There" paper pad is perfect for that!


Can I tell you a fun story?

My boy is wanting a dog, big time.  This is where I insert that he HAS a dog over at his Dad's house...but he wants wants another dog at MY house.

He wants a French Bulldog and he'd name her after his sister since she'll be leaving for college this fall.

I'll be sure to make the boy lots and lots of cards with this stamp since that is as close to a french bulldog as he is going to get:)

Now hippety hop over to the amazing Angi's blog:


Oh yes, before you go, check out the rafflecopter!

We share the same feeling about having our own dog. Have to admit I'm cracking up that your son would name it after his sister. Sounds like something that would be said at my house.

PS Love the bulldog on your card! He's adorable.

So sweet! I'd say you successfully completed your own challenge, I'll have to try a shaped card myself! My children are desperate for a puppy but I'm not ready for all the work that comes with a family pet (Im a bad mummy! Lol)
