Dueling Darlings June Match

It's the 15th and time for another Duel.  Laura Jean and I came up with a pet theme several months ago and would like everyone to post something about their first pet...but first - the cards!

Here is a listing of the contents I sent for the Dazzlers:

Here are the deets for your June Duel:Dog & paw print stamps: Inkadinkado - no names for the imagesSentiment: Hero Arts "Be the Person"Papers: Paper Studio, Multicolored Dog Paws, Red Burlap and Masculine Stripe.  Green is from my stash.Ribbons: Dotted and paw print from Ribbon Boutique, Studded dog-collar looking adhesive trim is from Hobby Lobby.Flowers are from Paper Studio's Spare PartsPlastic dog paws are Paper Studio's Spare Parts, "Knick Knacks"Glitter paw prints are Jolee's BoutiqueButtons from Hobby Lobby, sewing section.

...And here is my card:

Hmmm, my little paw print embellishments photographed kind of dark.  But they are a dark brown surrounded by a lighter brown.  

Here's the inside.

My daughter's dog now lives with me, she adores me, LOL.  I think I'd have to walk on water to live up to that dog's view of me.  (but I liked the saying on this stamp)

The image on the front actually looks a lot like Suki (my daughter's dog) - except for the glasses of course.

My first pet was a dog: a miniature toy poodle named Pierre.  He was jet black with a little white bib.  He loved camping with us. Maybe because my Dad would give him pancakes when we camped.  One time we tossed him into the lake to get the syrup off.  He swam right back to us and never even got his ears wet.  We had to wash them in a tub!

I hope everyone had fun with this theme and their kits.  Thanks for stopping by!

This is adorable Darlene. I love how you added color to the glasses and ribbon. The color is so rich looking and the ribbon looks like velvet. You send out a wonderful kit and you did a great job with it...so glad we are duelers and friends.
