Calendar Girls Challenge - Furry Friends

Our challenge this month for the Calendar Girls was to:
"show us fur, your fluff, your waggin’ tails! The possibilities are endless – from doggies to cats, mice to turtles – in one case, a spider! (lil dj!!) LOL! Let’s bring some creativity to making a card (etc) with any image showing us a pet (including if you don’t actually own one!)

** For an extra part of the challenge, since it is February, please try to include the color RED on your card somewhere (coloring of the image, your DSP, cardstock, embellies – just a touch (or a lot!) of red."

The stamp I used is a stamp my youngest gave me a couple of Christmases ago. She loves puppies and really, really wants one. I had never inked it up so I thought it was perfect for this challenge. I believe it was purchased at Michael's. I used Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla cardstock. The DP is from DCWV - The Pets Stack. I embossed the Very Vanilla CS with a Sizzix paw prints embossing folder (click on the picture see this better) and used my SU! circle and scalloped circle punches for the image. My splash of red is the fire hydrant eyelet...which was most likely purchase from Eyelet Outlet.

Thanks for stopping by. See my sidebar, and visit all the Calendar Girls' blogs to see their creations.

awwwwwww... Deb, this is such a cute card! I love the way you placed the image on the strip of bones. And that red fire hydrant is so cute up in the corner.

I think this would be a perfect card to give to your wee one, with a note inside saying she can have a puppy of her very own. ;) After all, your other DD has Spidey, so wee one should have the dog of her dreams.

Hmm...I think that the wee one should move in with J since she will allows a puppy!

Your card is fabby...I really did want to see a spider though!
