After a weekend filled with dog beaches, long walks, and doggie bakeries…My Scotties were super sleepy on the car ride home! lol! Caught them snoozing away on my lap! They are so sweet!

thank you scottie1

I made several thank you cards for all the wonderful friends and family in my life! As you can see, I am still hooked on the Scottie nautical theme!

thank you scottie2

I just love the little anchors and the sail boat! The Paper Smooches sentiment was perfect for these cards!

Thank you for all the love! Muah!

You’re my First Mate!

I can’t believe summer is already here! Looking forward to lots of sun and water this year.  The following card was inspired by this adorable outfit from the Martha Stewart pet collection:

And of course, my adorable little Scotties:

It took me forever to put this card together and I struggled to find the right alphabet set for the cute sentiment.  Anyone ever have this problem?! The red striped pattern paper is actually from Martha Stewart’s Valentine’s day collection which fits perfectly with the nautical theme.

Here you can see the dimension added to the card.

I hand cut the banner for the sentiment and used my (beloved) silhouette for the boat and anchor.  Then a few sprinkles of enamel dots to finish up the card! Happy Sailing to all the Scotties!

UPDATE:

After completing the post, I couldn’t help but adding a few more finishing touches.  I thought the anchor looked a little lonely so I made a little lifesaver to keep it company. Then, I added some black stitching around the card and enamel dots to the water! Adorable!

A Scottish Thanks!

I made this card for another Scottie Mom…

There is a quote I came across that really struck a chord in my heart when I was making this card:  “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” Anatole France.  I can say without a doubt, my soul has been awakened. Hope you have a lovely weekend filled with puppy kisses!

Scottie on Board!

This has to be one of my favorite cards of all time!

Love is in the details! And if you love little scotties!
