I like to make handmade cards and my dogs are with me every step of the way. I have cardboard boxes from Costco with pillows made up for them to sleep in while I make my cards, so I have boxes of dogs! Three of my little ones have gone over the Rainbow Bridge, but I know they are still watching over me.

Lil' Cowboy Love
My husband has asked me if I ever "just make a card" meaning without a sketch. I thought that was an interesting question since I mainly use sketches. I have started making some "diorama" type cards, which I am really enjoying, by making scenes with various dies. So when I looked at this little cowboy from Bugaboo Stamps, I decided to use a die from Cuttlebug's Love Language for the word love and let his horseshoe be the you. I had to ask a friend to look at my card to see if the "love you" idea came through and she saw it right away, thank goodness! The red plank paper is from a My Mind's Eye 6x6 pad - I used both sides and embossed the bottom with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I'll probably make a few more of these for our Heroes to send home to their own little cowboys.
