Real Puppy Love

     This sweet image is by Ching-Chou Kuik and I just fell in love with that darling Papillion!  I know, I know, I'm supposed to be a crazy cat lady but the truth is I'm an animal lover who just happens to live with two cats.  But don't tell them!  :-D

     The image is colored with ProMarkers and chalks (her hair), then cut with a my newest die from Sue Wilson.  I backed it with brown CS, also cut with a die from that same set.  The blue butterfly was also cut with a Sue Wilson die.  The sentiment is mine and the string of pearls came from my stash.

Hi, Connie! I love the way you have used that die cut! Great idea to use that strange shape in the center for the actual image, and then inlay it with the frilly prettiness of the frame! GREAT IDEA! Wonderful colors, and a serene, peaceful scene! Hoping you enjoy a great week-end! hugs, de!
