A Puppy's Heart

     This was a Friday Freebie at Bugaboo Stamps yesterday (still available until next Thursday, I think) and I'm using it as another Thank You card for Sending Paw Prints.  That's the group which collects handmade thank you cards with pet images which they donate to animal shelters and rescue groups so that they can be sent to volunteers, donors, and pet adopters.   I think it's a great cause and I plan to participate a lot.


     I colored the image with my ProMarkers and cut it with a Sue Wilson die.  I added the blue frame which is also cut with a die from that same Sue Wilson set.  Although it's hard to see, both of the blue papers are patterned dp from my scrap pile.  I added the one bow as the only embellishment.  It didn't need much since it's intended to be a masculine card.

     I had to make a second one of these.  I was told this would be a great Valentine card for the nephew of a friend of mine so now I've made another just like it.  I think I photographed the one without a sentiment so you'll have to imagine this one with a small, stamped "Thank You" in the upper, left corner.  :-D

I love the coloring on this card! You really impress me with your skills! And that tiny bow.. simply adorable! I am rather new to coloring in my images. I am trying water colors and markers, but I just haven't gotten the knack of either, yet. I would love any pointers you could give for getting such a great graduation of color for the shading. I'd love to share my works with you, too, if you would care to take a look - thecraftycritter.com. I can always use helpful feedback from a fellow crafter!

This is such a charming little card! You have amazing coloring skills and have given your dapper dog such a great look! I also really like the way you framed out your central image with such an intricate die. It's a nice mix of sophistication and whimsy and I like the bright colors, too. I agree that this is a wonderful cause and I always applaud crafters who share their talents to brighten up the lives of others, so kudos to you! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful piece with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
