Pugs and Kisses

Hello!  I'm so happy to be blogging today after about 
6 months of very little crafting time and no blogging. 

Our family has had a LOT of changes since February.
I started a new job, we sold our house, downsized into a 
new place, our daughter graduated high school, our son 
finished his first year of graduate schooling and got married.  
And...tomorrow we move our daughter to college and become 
empty-nesters. EEEK!  I'm not so sure I like the sound 
of that last part of the sentence above.  It will be a change for 
us to be sure!  Thankfully she isn't moving terribly far away.   

Anyway...back to the reason for this post.  I was asked by 
a friend to make a small card for one of her friends who loves pugs.
 I jumped at the reason to get crafty and color with my copics again.
She wanted it to be small (less than 4 inches) to fit on a special gift 
she was making, a pug on it ( I chose three  because she has three)
and lots of glitter. Oh dear... anyone who knows me knows that
I'm not a huge fan of glitter. I can't handle the mess it leaves
everywhere and it seems like you find it forEVER - LOL.
But I do like glitter paper (much cleaner), so that's what I used.
I used the sketch from the Mix It Up Challenge #46 at SugarPea Designs. 
No automatic alt text available.

I used the Caring Critters clear stamp set and dies from 
SugarPea Designs. I love this sweet set! 
I made the sentiment on my computer because that's what
she wanted it to say.
I found some glittery washi tape to add to the sentiment too. 
Here's the finished 3 1/2" square card. She loved it! 

I'm entering the following challenges too that fit for this card:

Thanks so much for stopping in to visit me today!
I hope to be back soon and sharing more of my crafty
makes!  Hugs and happy crafting to all of you.  D
