I Ruff You! for The Cutting Cafe and FWF

It's Friday! It's Friday!  And, I have a very special card to share today.  Do any of you other pet lovers make cards for your pets to give to your spouses?  That's what I did for today's post.
At The Cutting Cafe, our assignment this time was anything with a Valentine's Day theme.  Regina has MANY files to choose from.  You can begin looking HERE.
I used a Valentine Window Card Tops set, and created this: 

Sophie, my Golden Retriever, will be giving this card to my husband on Valentine's Day.  He really is her favorite person.  She tells him in many different ways that she "ruffs" him.
The Golden Retriever is a stamp by one of my favorite artists -- Phyllis Harris.  It is co-branded by Unity Stamp Company. The dog is part of the set, "Brandy & Emma, Forever Friends."  In this case, though, it's "Sophie & Shaun, forever friends."  I colored the pooch with Copic markers, trying to make her the same color as our Sophie.  
The crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM. The Flair button and heart bling are from Close To My Heart.  The sentiment was computer generated.
I hope my husband likes his card.  Sophie worked hard on this one, snoring softly beside me the whole time I made it!

  5. I've never thought of making a card for our pets to give to hubby. They call him "vet dad"....and if he is giving them very much close attention, it is usu not for a very good reason. Ha. Besides, with 20 cats, 1 dog, and 2 chickens, I'd be busy 24/7 making cards for them to give him! :)

    Your card is just so sweet. I Ruff cute!!! Love your slightly mottled coloring on the pooch and all the hearts!!! Saw you on Unity FWF.
