For my card tonight, I created this cutesy little scene using the adorable Puppy Love set. This set was illustrated by Torico, and is a dog lovers DREAM set!! So cute and FUN!! It's also PERFECT for Valentine's Day. I stamped my girl and dog, sun, and clouds on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored it with my Copics. My grass was created with my CopicsLink. I then layered it with Berrylicious, Lemon Drop, and Wild Cherry card stock. My paper is from the Quite Contrary line from My Mind's Eye. I paper pieced her dress with that paper, as well. For my background, I used the Small Open Scalloped Border Die-namics from My Favorite Things, as well as, the Oval Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics. For my embellishments, I used a wide red ribbon from SU, Saffron, Red Gingham from SU, and some Buttercream Twine from the Ribbon Carousel. My brads are from Michael's, and my spiral clip is from Creative Express.

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! Be sure to run past the There She Goes blog to see what the other girls have come up with!!
