Puppy Love

Hello Everyone! Sorry I've been away for so long! I hope that you are all doing well and are having a wonderful summer!   Here on the Coast of Southern California, summer has started off with a big bang! We are having a heat wave with temperature in the high 80's, low 90's and it might even reach a 100 degrees today!

I want to share with you a little doghouse and tag that I created for a friend who just adopted a puppy! As you can tell from the pink design papers that I used that the puppy is a sweet little girl. To create the doghouse, I used a pattern from SVG Cutting Files. Since I don't have Sure Cuts A Lot for my Cricut, I just printed the pattern out on card stock and made a template. I glued a sheet of white card stock and the pink designer papers together using a Pioneer Photo Glue Stick to give the doghouse strength. I traced the pattern onto it and cut it out by hand. I put the doghouse together using ScorTape.  The digi design papers that I used are from MyGrafico,  Designs by Angie - Isabel Set 1 and 2.  I added a little bit of crocheted lace that I found at Hobby Lobby and some pink ribbon from Michaels. For the cute little puppy, I used a Quickutz Die that I bought a few years ago - Dog #KS-0550. The pearl heart is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the little dog bone is from my stash. The "Puppy Love" is from Technique Tuesday - Dogs We Love Set #KDWL.

Well, I hope you like this little doghouse and tag! I know that I will be making them again. It was pretty easy to put together. I didn't take a picture of it, but the roof on the doghouse opens up so you can fill it with treats for a friend or their sweet dog . I filled the doghouse with some yummy Gourmet Cherry Heart Shaped Jelly Beans that I found at Target.

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I always love hearing from you and appreciate all your comments. I hope to be back again soon with another project that I'm working on.

Until then, stay cool during the Dog Days of Summer!

I'm entering the doghouse and tag in the following challenges:
