I Ruff You! -- for Path of Positivity

It's the 15th of the month, and time for some mid-month inspiration at the Path of Positivity Challenge blog.  The challenge theme this month is "Desire".

Our sponsors this month are Ike's Art and Scribbles Designs.   This time, I worked with a great image from Ike's Art called Labrador Stick.

This was my husband's Valentine's Day card from our Golden Retriever, Sophie yesterday.  The inside read, "I love you more than a big stick, or a tennis ball, but maybe not more than treats or food, but I really, really do love you."  It was signed, Princess Sophie.

If you know a dog who likes big sticks, or obsesses over tennis balls, it truly is desire.  Life stops when the tennis ball comes out.  There is nothing else.  One of our former dogs would chase a ball for hours, stopping only when food was offered.   That, my friends, is desire, as seen through the eyes of a dog.

This card base was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo, using a cutting file I found in the Silhouette Design Store.  I used several oval Spellbinders dies to cut out and mount the image (colored with Copics).  The sentiment is a stamp from Close To My Heart.   The sequins are from Craftin' Desert Divas. 

I hope you can join us this month at Path of Positivity for our theme, Desire.  You have until March 8 to link up.  We've got great prizes, and I'd love to see what you create!
