DDD: Pets! ♥

Hi friends!

I'm slowly getting back to crafting/blogging after a chaotic end of school,
graduation, a 3 day blur of a weekend of activity,
 and now the week long wonders of VBS!
By this time next week, 
I'll be back to my routine and knee deep in markers, glue, paper, ink!

And today is the 15th!  
And on my blog, that means it's the post between the Divas + the Dazzlers
and our friendly duel this month is .......... Pets!
Darlene and LJ were the hostesses for the DDD this month
and they came up with a wonderful, sweet theme.
For me, that is a love so strong and faithful in our home - 
we love our fur babies just like one they are one of the kids ♥

LJ sent us the fabulously fun kit to work with ~
and ooooh did I oogle this image when I saw it in social-media-land!
I love, love, LOVE this adorable pup from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!
I colored the image with prismacolor markers, popped it up with 3D foam,
and used a ribbon and the kraft banner to give it some character ...
 I added the matching sentiment to the inside of the card :)

 Be sure to stop in and see what the rest of the Divas and Dazzlers
have created with the PETS theme - 
you can find them right in my blog side bar!

Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
