You Make My Heart Happy

Hello, again!  It’s another rainy, dreary day here, which is the perfect time to craft in my opinion.  In case you’re suffering from the winter blahs, I’ve got a card today with an adorable pug that’s sure to make you smile.

Isn’t he adorable?!  He’s one of the cute critters from SugarPea Designs’ Caring Critters set.  I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with Copics, and cut him out.  I just adore that sentiment, which is from the same set.  I die-cut a brown banner with Craftin Desert Divas Flag Banner Dies, stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat-embossed it in white.

Copics: W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, 100, E30, E31, R22


The shaker frame was die-cut from American Crafts Icon paper with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles dies and MFT Inside/Out Stitch Circles STAX.  The sequins are from Honey Bee Stamps and Craftin Desert Divas.  After assembling the shaker, I adhered the pug on top of the window and popped up the sentiment with foam squares.

Thanks for sharing your day with me.  I hope the rest of yours is spectacular!

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:  SugarPea Designs Mix It Up Challenge 28, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge:  Young at Heart, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Cute, Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge 228:  Holiday, and Time Out Challenge 76:  Inspired by Words.
