Dog-gone great!

I have had the Stampin' Up! set "Teacher's Pet" for a few months now and sadly have only used it once or twice. Well, Joanne at http://http//sleepyinseattlestamps.blogspot.com/ inspired me to think of ways to use sets I already that weren't "Valentine sets" to make Valentine cards! Instantly Teacher's Pet came to mind. I think this set is super cute and very versatile. For the sentiment I used my Word Window punch and my Stamp-a-majig to perfectly position the sentiment. I love how this card turned out! I hope you are having better weather then we are today. Thankfully the ice turned to rain but my DH still had to wait till lunchtime to leave because of our slippery driveway!

Supplies:

Stamps - SU Teachers Pet

Ink - SU Choco Chip

Paper, Su Choco Chip, Red Ridinghood Red, Very Vanilla

Embellies - Metalic Flower Brads

Ribbon - SU Wide Chocolate Chip grosgrain, American Crafts

Tools - Cuttlebug Houndstooth Folder, SU Scallop Punch, SU 1 3/4 Circle Punch, SU Word Window Punch, Crop-a-dile

You did great on this challenge. I always have a hard time with the smaller stamps, but you've inspired me to drag some out now.

Veronica, this is so cute! I love this little dog and wouldn't have thought of using him for a general card. Sorry I haven't posted in so long. I am starting a new job on Monday and it's full time. I currently work half time, so it will be an adjustment for me. I'm trying to get my house organized, but I think it's a losing battle! I will try to send you a comment on your fabulous work when I get the chance!
