Puppy Love -- for Di's Digi Designs Challenge Blog

And, they call it, Puppy Love!   How many of you know that song? It was running through my head the whole time I created today's card.  Now, if you know the song, you'll be singing it to!!

Sing about the new challenge on Di's Designs Challenge Blog, too. They're worth singing over!  The theme that starts today is "use your stash".  I could be on this theme for the next 200 years and never run out of supplies in my craft room!

For the challenge this time, I was inspired by my new puppy (photos in a moment).  I used this digital stamp called Daisy and Bassett to create this card: 

I colored Daisy and Bassett with Copic markers.  They are so smitten with each other, aren't they?  The stitched die and the label die are from a company no longer in business (part of the "from my stash theme for this challenge).  I cut out the paw print border with a file I found in the Silhouette Design Store, using my Silhouette Cameo 3.   The designer heart paper is from We Are 3 Digital Shop.  It's from the Hearts in Love paper pack.

The sentiment is from an acrylic stamp set that I've had forever -- it's part of the "in my stash".  The paw print brad has also been in my stash for years.  I have lots of dog related crafting items I can get out for projects just like this one!

Here's two pictures of my new Golden Retriever.  He just came home with us on Sunday:

Here, we're leaving the breeder's home, with a 2 hour car ride ahead of us.  He seems to be saying, "Let's go to my forever home, I'm ready!"

Here he is today, after exploring the yard. He found a cool place to hang out, in the ferns.

I hope you can play along with the Di's Designs Challenge these 2 weeks for our "stash items" challenge.  You might make a dent in the stash (or not), and there are the cutest digis you can win!
