Love You

Hi! Man, it's cold down here in the south. Even though temps have dipped into the teens the last couple of days, the good news is that it's suppose to be 71 on Saturday. Ahhh, the craziness of living in the South.

Our little puppies are growing so fast! When we first got them, they were 3 pounds. As of their vet visit last weekend, they are now 6 pounds. And cute! Oh my gosh. They are such adorable little pups. 

Remember I said they went shopping with us at Petsmart last weekend? Thought you'd enjoy a pic of that. Miss Ginger is the one admiring the pink collars. Mary Ann is enjoying watching Ginger stretch to the top of the buggy. We've been asked what breed they are... they are Pitt Bulls. Now don't let that breed name turn you off immediately. Dogs learn acceptable behavior as they grow. So if they are socialized and treated lovingly, they will grow to be wonderful pets no matter what breed they are. These little darlings play with our young toddler grandchildren and our special needs child, so they are getting lots of socialization.

Okay, you probably just want me to get on with my card creation for today. Here you go...

Kraft card base 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Black 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Pattern paper 4" x 5 1/4" (from Echo Park "All About a Boy")
Banner strips cut 1" x various sizes (pattern paper from American Crafts "With Love"
Stampin' Up Whisper White Baker's Twine on buttons
Buttons from Joann's
Miss Kate Cuttables "Valentine Bee" (this was the freebie for yesterday - there's a new freebie every day!)
Action Wobble from The Royal Castle Shoppe
Stampin' Up "Itty Bitty Banners" stamp set and metal dies for sentiment
Heart adhered with Stampin' Up dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you all stay warm, safe, and enjoy the rest of your week.
:) Janis

Your card is adorable but it is those girls that steal the show once again! lol I agree, Pit Bulls are very loving animals and it is the way they are raised that makes them bad. Not their fault I might add. It's a shame the way people treat these poor animals.

Your pups are adorable now your card you have to know is playing 2nd fiddle to your pups (LOL)
I know of what you are saying re: Pit Bulls. My daughter had one for years and and he was adorable and I loved him to death and we'd snuggle with me and we'd even give each other smooches yes smooches his name was "Shacq" after the famous basketball player as my daughter at the time played on her college team and traveled with them. but Shacq is now in puppy heaven. But your puppies are adorable. Now about your card it's so stinkin' ca-ute!!
What a sweet, sweet newsletter.

Adorable card. Pit Bulls have such a bad reputation and ppl don't understand that it's not the dog but the owners. your little babies are so lucky to have such loving parents as you and I am sure they will grow and make the Pit Family proud.

Awesome card. I've wanted to try a wobble card but I never know what to focus something that would really benefit from motion. This is great inspiration and super cute. Bright colors, cute bee, and fun! Thanks for sharing it over at Red Carpet Studios!
