I’m so thrilled to be part of this fabulous event as a guest! Mama Elephant, THANK YOU SO MUCH for having me another year with you for the birthday celebration! I’m a big fan and it’s a great honor!

Here is my card featuring the brand new Oh Puppy Tree stamp set: 




I first stamped the background and the sentiment in light gray ink. I used my Misti stamping tool. I then stamped the dog tree again on white cardstock in black ink and colored all sweet puppies with Copic markers. I die cut a heart shape from that colored panel and adhered it as shown to the card base on top of the greay stamped tree using foam pads. I really love this technique. It makes the heart stand out and it looks very special. I hope you like my card inspiration and get inspired!

Francine, this is the most special card. It is beautiful! I will try this technique.
Too bad, you couldn't squeeze Sweet Little Max in there. This is a perfect card also for Max's breeder family.
