Hello friends!  I hope you are doing amazing on this thankful Thursday.  Today I am hopping with some Crafty Collaborators along the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop as we share inspiration related to our Furry Friends.  There are several of us hopping today - you will find the list to follow along towards the bottom of my blog post - so sit back and enjoy your favorite coffee, tea, water or smoothie as we share some handmade projects with you!

Today's Project

When you have a family pet, you have to create a card from them, right?!?  RIGHT!!!  Today's card was inspired by the colors over at #TGIFC354 to share some love with my boys!

#tgifc354 Color Challenge

Project Details

Lots of fun die-cuts along with the Gingham Embossing Folder, Stampin' Blends and two stamp sets along with some special Dies were the items to create this fun-loving card!

Love & Happiness Bundle meets Banner Year | My entry for #tgifc354 | Nature's INKspirations by Angie McKenzie

Basic White Cardstock did all the work...  The Bouquet of Love Dies from the Love & Happiness Bundle are the highlights of the card front along with the paw print die-cut from the Pets Dies.  The Banner Year sentiment was heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder onto Smoky Slate Cardstock scraps, fussy cut and applied haphazardly along the label die cut from the Love & Happiness Bundle.  A scrap piece of Basic White was colored with the Dark Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Marker while the flowers and leaf die-cuts were colored with Calypso Coral and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends Markers.

But wait, it's the inside that really melts my heart and will probably affect yours in the same way!

Pampered Pet and Playful Alphabet Dies for a Furry Friend | My entry for #tgifc354 | Nature's INKspirations by Angie McKenzie

My favorite image from the Pampered Pets Stamp Set was stamped in Smoky Slate along with the hearts.  The hearts were colored with the Light Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Marker.  The letters were die-cut with the Playful Alphabet Dies and colored with the Dark Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Marker.  

So quick and simple to make with Basic White Cardstock elements adhered to a Thick Basic White card base filled with lots of love from our family favorite, Benji!  Now to finish the second one... or are their other family members of ours or friends that Benji needs to send cards to?!?  Looks like it might me a long day for this dog mom!
