Shitsu Valentine Card

Loretta, a very dear friend of mine, has a little Shitsu dog who is 12 years old, and not in the best of health. Lori asked me if I would make her a card to give to her husband, from their little dog, for Valentine's Day. I was reading an article on making Valentine cards in the latest MS Living magazine, when I saw that they had a card you could download called, Pawprints in the Snow. It was a line drawing of a little fox, circling a tree in a heart-shaped pattern, leaving his little paw prints. I thought it would be the perfect base for Lori's card. I took out the fox, increased the trail a little, and designed a Shitsu with Lori's dog's coloring, which I put at the end of the trail of paw prints. She's wearing a little pink bow in her hair like she does when she comes home from the groomers. 

I also lined the envelope with a free digi paper I found at squigglefly. Hope Lori likes it.

Thanks for popping by tonight Laura! I work at a Cherry processing plant so that is why I use that banner. I am trying to think of a new banner, maybe including my stamps or something...I have had that one forever...but I like it so can't decide! LOL

Oh, Laura - this is a pretty card. I'm sure that her husband will love it!

I posted my reply to the pop-up card on my blog after your question - hope that helps!
