Doggone Happy You Are My Person

Today’s card is perfect for that special dog lover in your life, or even for the dog to send to someone.  Who can resist a quartet of cute canines professing they are “doggone happy you are my person”.  It’s Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players!

doggone happy You are my personThis week the fabulous LeAnne has an amazing sketch for us.  I saw it as an opportunity to showcase the Doggone Friendly stamp set and created a card for Nueve to give to his good friend, Michelle. Michelle is always so appreciative of the cards Nueve gives her. I think she will LOVE this one.  With so many options for this sketch, I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

What a treat the Doggone Friendly stamp is! Although it is a large background stamp, I selected four pups from the larger image to color and fussy cut. Each one sits atop its own Perennial Postage square. This sentiment, from Wonderful Thoughts, seemed absolutely perfect for this card. A trio of black adhesive backed sparkle gems are the perfect accents.

  1. Ahhh, of course I love this card with all of the adorable puppers, Ann! The gingham background is a fun touch, too. Such wonderful inspiration for this stamp!

  2. Claire Broadwater

    Ann, this card is SO YOU!!!!!!! I love all the doggies and how you used this amazing color of DSP for your background. The postage stamp die is just fabulous, too! I LOVE IT! Have a blessed Easter, My Friend!

  3. Joanne James - The Crafty Owl

    I figured that this stamp set may be on your list Ann – I love how you used it with this week’s sketch! The pops of red and gingham background pair beautifully – the perfect card for Michele from the perfect pup!

  4. I am not surprised to see this set in your repertoire, Ann! You’ve used those pups perfectly and I am sure Michelle will love it! Great way to use my sketch too!

  5. Hi Ann, I made your card but changed dogs, color of dogs, DSP . I Love the card which is no surprise. The layout I did the same using the Cherry Cobbler, I used some older Soft Suede plaid.

    Diana from Wisconsin I used to have a different email but changed to the one below. My husband has jmlaabs etc etc. we seem to have trouble with the same address

  6. Wonderful card for Michelle. I want to think that Teddy would give me a similar card. I don’t think I told you that Teddy was diagnosed with a big tumor in his spleen that has gone into his blood vessels and going to other organs. He looks so healthy and happy but the shaved belly from his ultrasound reminds us otherwise. He is eating and drinking well and taking lots of long walks. His card would have the basset hound on it. Hugs!

  7. Perfect card!! I love the stamp set and I love what you did with it!
    Michelle will be so happy to receive such a sweet card from Nueve.
    He’s a good boy!
    Thanks for sharing your talent!

  8. Perfect card for Nueve to give to Michelle!

    Pawsitively fantastic!
