And They Call It Puppy Love...

Greetings! Dear Husband continues to not feel well so it has been a different sort of week craft-wise. I stole away for a bit this afternoon, with no challenge in mind. I just felt like working with my hands! I began by leafing through a clip art book from Crafty Individuals and found this dear little girl with her puppy dog. I was immediately drawn to the red in the photo. I decided to add blues and browns to my color scheme and from there, the rest just fell into place. The sentiments are from Studio G and embellishments include vintage buttons and lace, burlap, re-purposed ribbon, a doily and some Baker's Twine from Martha Stewart. I hope you are having a good day. For my friends across the sea, Happy Friday! My best to all of you, Yvonne

You know the saying: The more I know men, the better I like my dog. LOL. Hope your DH is feeling better now.
