Valentine's Day Puppy

Hello! Can you believe it's the end of January already! Time to start preparing for Valentine's day! Earlier this week, one of my coworkers asked me to make a vday card for her to give to her daughter (6 yrs old). She likes dogs, so a card with a puppy would be great. Here is what I came up with.

puppy - paper pups @ 3.5", shadowed & pop-dotted
heart - george @ 3" silouhette
LOVE - Heidi Swapp chipboard letters
border - MS lace heart punch

Also, I made my 2000th post on the cricut messageboard. I joined the board on May 10, 2008... that's a lot of chatting in 8.5 months! LoL!

Here is my take on the challenge over at The Cuttlebug Spot ( Challenge #14 is a Valentine's day color challenge... make something for valentine's day but without any pink or red! Such a fun challenge. For this I used the Heartblock embossing folder. Also, I bought the Singer Pixie sewing machine and this was my first sewing project!
