Sunflower Friends Lil Pups


We have a new Midweek Throwdown challenge starting today at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps with a K-9 theme!  I'm excited to say we also have a prize sponsor again this week, the fabulous K 'n K Designs!!  Katlyn has some of the most adorable digital "K-9" designs in her shop too.  

For some reason I haven't had time to make a card using one of Katlyn's digital images so I'm going to share my all time favorite K n' K Designs digital image I made into a card before this challenge.


If you know me very well you know it's Maxine.  Katlyn used our boxer pup Maxine as a model for one of her digital stamp sets and also made me a really nice watermark using Maxine.

My first card today uses a pre-colored digital image from Sunflower Friends.  This card has been made up for quite awhile and already gone out in a box of cards for Operation Write Home.

On a personal note, school started today in our little town.  I have a 5th and 6th grader and love them like crazy, I'm also really happy to have a quiet peaceful house...  I need to get back in a routine and get some serious work done :)

Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Oh yes...I won some of her images last week. She really has some cute images. Hope to hear from her soon to start making some cards.....maybe soon enough to do this throwdown. I love your colors and layout and will probably have to case this. You know I love your style.

HI again, can you tell me specifically the name of the clipart for the first dog card? I went to the site and couldn't find it, but there are some really cute things there I'm going to get, but will wait to hear from you to place my order.

I was going to say all sorts of nice things about your cards but I got distracted by the "school started today" bit. Wow, that sounds so early!

I really like the blue you used in the first card and how you tied all the elements together with that color choice. :)
