Oh friends ~
I'm PAW-sitive you will love what the Dueling Darlings are posting today!
I promise our "for the dogs" cards will be
a tail waggin', face lickin', belly scratchin' good time!
Carol is the Divas' hostess this month and Shelly is the Dazzlers' hostess ~
their incredibly fun theme is: For the Dogs!
I LOVE this theme! ♥
They shared that: "we searched the weird holidays for March.
On the 10-13 it is Crufts--the worlds largest dog show and on the 23rd is National Puppy day....
.thus leading for the theme "for the dogs".
Carol and Shelly, this is perfect!
We are H-U-G-E doggie fans in our home ....
Buddy is my little sidekick and Buster, our rescue dog from a busy Miami highway, has equally stolen our hearts :)
Dogs are LIFE ♥
Carol sent us several darling image choices ~ so hard to pick,
so I colored up the first one, Bugawumps Schnauzer
(could that name be any cuter!)
Now here's where my card really started going to the dogs ....
I couldn't cover up the puppies on the designer paper!
I. Just. Could. Not.
I felt so bad ... isn't that crazy?!!
I couldn't cut it the paper.
I couldn't pick a side to use and cover up another.
I just wanted to pet the paper and smooch all over it!
Knowing I wouldn't have a card for today,
I finally got my act together, LOL.
I fussy cut the pup, colored it up with prismacolor markers
and 3D popped it off the card ...
And you know,
I love love LOVE my card ♥
I don't say don't that often ....
but this one makes my heart smile :)
And the inside of the card:
They also posed a question for the challenge:
Did you have a pet dog when you were growing up?
Yep, almost always!
Our first family dog that I remember was a sweet Collie named Holly.
I was just 5, my brother 6, and my parents adopted her
after we arrived at a new military base.
We were kids of the 70's and she followed us like a second shadow,
sweet and kind and as loving to us kids as one could hope for in a dog.
Bless her heart ♥
Now it's time to see what the other darlings have created!

I hope today is a playful one!
