MFT Teaser Time! It's Puppy Love!

Happy Monday Friends!!!  I know that sometimes the beginning of the week can get off to a slow to start but most certainly not THIS Monday what with all of the UNBELIEVABLE cuteness being shown today!!  So many amazing new Pure Innocence sets along with some super fun and fabulous Die-namics!  SWOON!

I am a dog person.  I've started to enjoy cats these last few years but at heart I'm a dog girl.  I've had dogs my entire life and presently our sweet, furry angel Katie brings us so much joy, companionship and love that I had to create this card and dedicate it to her! 

Oh how I love her!!  I inked her with Momento and colored her in with my Copics.  I then paper pieced her jumper, sleeve, puppy and tiny hand to ensure the proper dimension.

I kind of surprised myself with keeping the layout and design very CAS but there was something about it that just made me smile in spite of myself!  I kept trying to add bling, brads, ribbon...something!??!  But nothing worked so I trusted my creative instinct and let it be!

I used my EP Country Drive paper pack and went fun and bright with my colors.  I switched out the white for red thread on my machine to give the edges a little extra pop. 

I used my very favorite Bracket Tab Die-namics for the sentiment on the outside of my card.  And I used a strip of stars from the Star Border Die-namic to add some fun texture.  

For my interior I used the Layered Hearts Die-namics which is where I housed my sentiment and some fun flowery brads. 
There are so many more unbelievably fantastic PI's being released today including Cowboy, Cowgirl, Indian Girl, Cute-a-tude, and Precious Lambs - Better Together.  I'm sure you're having a blast peeking in on all of the amazing MFT designer's blogs to see what wonderful creations they are teasing today!!  

Thank you, as always, for your wonderful and sweet words.  

See you tomorrow for the Pre-Release Pep Rally and Die-namics Feature!!  

Crafty Hugs!
