How Doggone Cute Is This?

As I mentioned in the previous post, I won the blog candy Lauri was giving away on her Paperville blog. This adorable Nikko Smile stamp was one of the 5 stamps she gave away. Isn't the expression on his face adorable? I've seen that look on my furry friends faces, and it's a look you just can't say no to! How do they know that?!!! Lauri also included a set of doggie charms that worked beautifully as an embellishment for this card. Thank you again, Lauri for the chance to win these goodies. I'm having a ball playing with them!!! In making this card, I used the following:
Stamps: Doggone Stamps Nikko Smile
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Sahara Sand, retired SU DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, various SU inks for watercoloring, and creamy caramel SU ink for sponging
Accessories: Top Note Bigz Sizzix Die from SU, corner rounder punch, taupe grossgrain ribbon, doggie charm, silver brads, paper piercing tool
What a fun card, and a fun image to play with. Being a dog lover, I can see myself using this stamp for many cards/projects for a long time to come. Please head over to Doggone Stamps and check out their selection of stamps. They have a great assortment, and something for everyone. I will have some samples to share from my other Doggone Stamps later in the week, so please come back and visit soon! Have a blessed day, and Happy Stamping!
Love Ya!

Hi Lori, my name is Nancy and I am the owner of Dog Gone Stamps. I love the card you made with Nikko Smile. The coloring is beautiful and the shapes and colors perfect.
Nikko is my son, Brian's dog and he captured his personality just right. Thanks you for making such a great card from our stamps. I hope you will share the other cards you make using Dog Gone Stamps.
