Dueling Darlings- Love my Dog : )

 The Dueling Dazzlers is a group at SCS that recieves a card kit each month and makes cards according to a theme. This month I had the privilege of being the hostess for the Dazzlers with Carol (for the Diva's). This is my first time ever hostessing this challenge, and Carol was fabulous to work with. I dropped the ball however, as I went away with my Dad falling ill and passing away, and had no computer time, so my kits went out and the Dazzlers had to figure out the theme- so sorry ladies..........

This month Shelly is the hostess for the Dazzlers and Carol is the hostess for the Divas. This month rather than going with the traditional St Patrick's Day holiday/theme, we searched the weird holidays for March. On the 10-13 it is Crufts--the worlds largest dog show and on the 23rd is National Puppy day.....thus leading for the theme "for the dogs". I hope you are liking your an extra bonus question....if you would like to share. Did you have a pet growing up...if so what kind and name.

Shelly, sorry to hear about your dad passing, my friend. I do love this adorable card. Such a sweet little pup.
I'm finally healed enough after the hand surgery that typing comments is possible and I'm getting back to crafting this weekend. Promise to be more faithful about leaving comments as the healing continues. :-D

Shelly you didn't drop the ball at all. You were where you should have been and not worrying about cards.

I love your card. It is simply adorable, the kit you sent was awesome. I can see from the cards your team posted they loved it as well. You did an amazing job with your card. Love it.

I just like everything about what you did on this card - from the hydrant button to the tighter pattern in the middle with outside larger pattern to the entire little scene you created. Too dang cute! xoxo
