Simba and Bailey.

Hello and Happy Tuesday!! Did you have a great weekend and a chance to sit and relax? Hard returning to work today. I can't blame you either for it is gorgeous outside! Those who live in the eastern states, can you believe it's 97 with NO humidity! Awesome!

Today is TIOT Challenge for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design,  and the challenge is a sketch posted on the store's blog HERE
I chose   "Puppy Love" from the Hearts and Hugs, Summer Collection by Victoria Case made exclusively for SCACD!  If you follow my blog you will know I love dogs and when I saw this stamp I had to have it! My dogs, Simba and Bailey are Havanese brothers from the same litter and are 2 1/2 years old.

I made a little video when they were about 4 months old and you can watch it here! It's not very long and I hope you like it!

Isn't this card adorable? I had a lot of fun with it. I changed the sign on the front of the box which said "take me home" to "friends!"

Awesome! I absolutely love the sketch and your card is perfect! I have been forgetting about this challenge, but will have to get back on track soon.

I hope you had a nice weekend and things are cooler for's been brutal here and we're in another heatwave...! I LOVE Summer, but mid 90's and lot of humidity are NOT for me!!

I'm off next to watch the video of your two 'babies' which should be fun! Thanks for sharing!!
