It’s soooo nice to be back and creating for Paper Smooches after a long break!  I needed a little break between several things that happened in life.  In short – I got married 🙂

Anyway… I’m using the new Paw Print Dies from the August release along with a sentiment from Lucky Dog Two stamp set.  I did a little of ink blending in blue and black.  It might be hard to tell from the photo, but the paw print is actually a negative die cut on a panel and the ink blending is directly on the card base.  I adhered the little red heart with foam tape and nested it into the paw print.

This is such an adorable die and it’s perfect for those furry friends’ owners!

Thanks for stopping by!
