and Playful Pups:


Gina K. Designs:
* Stamp Set - Playful Pups
* Pure Luxury Cardstock - White Heavy Base & Layering Weight, & Black Onyx
* Premium Dye Ink - Ocean Mist, Turquoise Sea, Black Only, Kraft, Warm Cocoa, Dark Sage, Grass Green
* Fine Detail Embossing Powder - White
Foam Squares, Score Pal, Black Gel Pen
 * When making a panel to Emboss Resist, Make it larger than you need. So when you cut it down
       you have some left to decorate the inside.                     I made mine 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" cut it down to
       3 7/8" w. X  3" tall.  The Bottom was sponged Grass Green and cut down to 3 7/8" X 2"  then
       placed my wood grained fence on top.  It is approximately 2 1/2 to 3" tall x 3 7/8" w.    :) 
I wanted to share a picture of my furry babies! The top photo is B.B.  it stood for Bonita Bizarre. LOL I did not name her, my husband at the time did! LOL  She was partial to men, but She was my sweet girl and we went through lots together. Miss her so much still. I had her from 1988 to 2001 then the Poodle LOL... "Punkie" was his name. He belonged to my niece and when she came to live with us, so did he! He soon became my dog. :)  He was a a lot of fun and easy to train.

That is all for me today! :)
Are you ready for some more Cuteness?

 Have fun and enjoy the inspiration along the way!
