sending a little lovin

one of my best, longest-known friends, needed some extra loving recently. she's a fellow crafter (Danielle at girlracer scrap), so i knew a handmade card may be able to get the job done! :)

here's the card i made for her:

i'm entering it in two challenges:

CAS-ual friday's - create a card based on the sketch and wee memories challenge - free for all!

there is a lot of dimension going on here: the ears, tail and paws of the puppy (stamp by paper smooches 'chubby chums'- so cute!). the grass was also layered and popped up, as were the clouds...*whistle*

ok, seeing it written like that, i may have popped up too much, but is that even possible?? :) ha ha!

i also, paper pieced the eyes and tongue of the puppy. the hearts were cut out with a punch (a much, much used and loved punch!) and then i added some glossy-coating to them so they would match the sentiment in color and texture.

i heat embossed (in red!) the sentiment, which is also paper smooches (setiment sampler).

so that's it! i hope that little card sent all of my love and hugs to Danielle! that's a lot of responsibility for a little card. :)



  1. Thank you!!! It was such a nice surprise! I recommend a hand made card when ever your feeling down. It just picks you right up knowing that someone else cares as much as you do.

    Love you!
