Playful Pups & The Other One

Two cards today….all using the Mama Elephant set ‘Playful Pups’ 

  Such a cute set.

I’m over showing them in more detail over at Make The Day Special Stamp Store’s blog 

Love how you can colour them in exactly like your own pooch and as there are no markings, you can really adapt them to fit. I used some vellum to act as the doggy tunnel. Using the dog and ball, I popped them onto the card using foam pads and then added glue onto the front of each which more or less disguised the glue points where I attached the vellum. Vellum is so tricky to attach sometimes!

Here’s a teeny card I created..only 8.5cm square. Using another of the dogs! 


Again- more colouring. Used some water-based markers to create the faux sky. Simple, but hopefully effective!

Our own pooch is still ‘settling in’. That’s the most positive way I can describe it.

I keep concentrating on the positives.

He’s not destroyed anything…yet.

He does sleep at night.

He’s breathing well.

He has fur.

He has a cute face.

Do read between the lines. Seriously- this dog is hard work.

If you saw the love emanating out of children to this scruffy little thing, it would warm your heart.

Mine’s getting warmer. Not quite toasty yet 😉

    I belive you’re making these pooch cards because this adorable furbaby is worming his way into your psyche. They do that, you know, ask me how I know. Anyway, that card with the tunnel is spot on…you’re so darn clever. And the little card is so sweet it makes my teeth itch.

    Two darling doggy cards! Love the vellum play tunnel; very clever that! And those ears on your new pup!!! He’s very cute, but you’re right…he’s tons of work. Our last pets were two cats; one very shy and sweet, and one very sweet and social. Had to give them up after DH’s knee/hip replacements. And as much as I loved them, I really don’t miss them….Have a great week, and best of luck with the new pup.
