  1. I always enjoy your ‘walk down memory lane.’ Each of these cards are stunning. How could this set retire?!?!? Love seeing the puppies. They are adorable.

  2. OK, the cards are great, but again…the puppy wins. I saw Jumping Jack Flash (loved the movie too!) and awwwwwwwwww! fell out of my mouth at record speed. There is nothing cuter than a boxer puppy and he is at the top of THAT list!

  3. Stunningly beautiful Ann, each and every one! Wow, this was the best 12 reasons to buy this stamp set I’ve ever seen! And 4 of these beauties I missed seeing when you posted, so this was a real treat for me! Can you believe I don’t own this stamp set? It’s true! What do you think from peeking at the new catty, anything compare? Oh, I bet you had fun today! : )

    Jack is gorgeous with his white chest and tummy. And those feet, oh my, they’re so cute! Have you picked the one lucky pup to stay with you and Kim yet? Or maybe, you’ll keep a few more? Do they have their lucky homes waiting, or is that still in the works? Gosh Ann, I wish I could walk on over and see them in person! I’d babysit for free, ha ha! Muffy has a beautiful family!!

  4. Love, love, love all the cards. Also Jumpin’ Jack Flash is adorable!

  5. Ann, these cards are GORGEOUS! Guess I may have to copy some of yours.
    Also very different and unique. And Jumping Jack is handsome!

    I think I am going to have to give in and get this set yet. I think JJ Flash is my favorite but that is subject to change with each photo of the little tykes! Gorgeous cards by the way!

  7. I love all of your cards. This set is so beautiful and I wish they were going to keep it,
    As for your BB (Big Boy) he is a cutie and a keeper!

  8. How gorgeous is he ever? Already that big? Amazing! As for the cards I saw they are all so beautiful. Thanks for sharing pictures of the little cuties with us

  9. Jack Fash is gorgeous!!!

  10. Beautiful cards and adorable puppy! He looks so soft!

  11. Ann, Ann, Ann…..I’m just drooling up here, my goodness!!! what gorgeous cards, I’m so happy I have this fabulous set but terribly sad it’s leaving, I hope everybody runs and gets it, it’s truly, one of the best SU sets EVER!!
    Ok now my dear, I’m also drooling over this lovely picture of Jumpin’ Jack Flash, how adorable, chubby, beautifully healthy he is, thank you, thank you for sharing this pictures of this puppies with us, we’ve practically seen them grow before our very eyes.
    Give all of them and, of course the proud Mama Muffy, a hug from us.

  12. Lovely cards and adorable puppy!

    Your cards are works of art that should be displayed in an art gallery! They are all just gorgeous and it was fun to see them all again!
    Wow…JJF is getting so BIG! And, handsome!!! FurBabyHugs!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing with us!

  14. He’s beautiful and his profile is awesome!! Obviously he never misses his turn at the milk bar!!

  15. These cards using the “Stippled Blossoms” are gorgeous!!! I finally gave in and bought this set back in March. Good thing, as they are now retired. Thanks for sharing

  16. Gorgeous cards – the one with the woodgrain background is my favorite, although I do like them all very much. Love the puppy photo, too – your puppy is almost as large as my full-grown Chihuahuas!

  17. Hi Ann,
    Cards are lovely as usual. Your babies are getting so big but… they look bigger than they are I am sure. 5 lbs is pretty little. Do you have forever homes yet for the babies?

  18. Awwww, got my puppy fix this morning! Thanks! Beautiful cards using that set. All that “fussy cutting” really made it pop! Hi to the pups of all ages at the Schach household.
