My Time to Craft Challenge Blog - Challenge #237 - Cats and Dogs

Hello friends - so excited to share with you today that I was accepted as a guest designer on the My Time To Craft Challenge Blog for the month of March. Whoo Hoo!!  What an honor for me to craft with this DT - thank you :o)

So... the first challenge of March is - "Cats and Dogs".  The lovely DT would like to see you use cats and dogs - both or either - on your crafty creation.  I have stamps or digital images of one or the other but nothing with both together - so I went with a cute little dog. Take a look please:

A sweet lady who is part of my card group is having a baby in May.  After having two darling daughters she and her hubby decided that it might be fun to be surprised and they aren't going to find out if this new baby is a boy or girl until it's born.  I have a feeling (or maybe it's a hope) that this time she's going to have a boy, so I made this card with her in mind. Why do I hope for a son for her?  Well...I have been blessed to have one of each myself and I think it would be really fun for her to have a little boy after having two precious girls.  I've so enjoyed having the experience of a son and a daughter (so different).  It's just the best of both worlds and they are the very best of friends.  Never fear though - I do have another one in mind to quickly put together if she has another girl :o).  

I stamped the little puppy on crumb cake (kraft) cardstock and then colored with copics.  That's the first time I've done it and I really like how the color turned out.  

I hope that you will decide to join the My Time to Craft Challenge #237 "Cats and Dogs".  The MTTC Design Team members have made some gorgeous creations to share with and inspire you as well so please pop in and give them a little love - and then link up for goodness sake so we can see what you did too :o)  

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today. Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
