Woof! That's dog for "I love you!"

Hello everyone!  I hope you are having a lovely weekend - mine is ticking along nicely!  I spent yesterday stripping off wallpaper from one of our bedrooms.  Not something I jump at the chance of doing but it rained heavily yesterday in the UK so it was good to be indoors!

To the card!  Today's card uses this uber cute dog from Karen's Doodles called "I didn't do it!" - isn't he sweet?!  

Have you ever had a stamp or digi that you love so much you're scared of using them because you may not do them justice?  Well this is how I felt over this little cutie - yeah, daft, I know!  But I really like how it turned out and it looks just like our Lulu - she will chew anything she can get her teeth into!  Luckily that doesn't include our furniture, but scarves, towels, branches ... anything!  And luckily this week's challenge over at Karen's Doodles is animal friends so of course I'll be entering it there!  

Thanks for visiting me today - I really appreciate all of your sweet and encouraging comments!

This is so nice Mary, what a sweet little puppy, I really love the colours you chose and the papers are so pretty.

Yes, THAT happens to me all the time, especially when I see what some girls do with the same stamp, I feel like intimidated. It's really good to share our experiences so now I know I'm not the only one :) Hugs xx

That image is so great! I'm silently laughing in front of my computer... When I was a child we had a dog that would chew anything... Luckily we gave him old shoes and tennisballs and he was able to understand which were his toys and which were ours that he wasn't allowed to touch!
