Birthday Puppy!

Happy Saturday, everyone! I'm quickly sharing a birthday card at My Craft Spot and also with you! I pray everyone has a blessed Easter tomorrow. :o)

While not an Easter project, it is actually a perfect time to share this! It is made to bring love, light, and hope to a child suffering far more than he ever should. Whimsically designed, yet filled with healing divine light. This is part of my contribution for this month's I Feel the Love Project, where we are creating for abused, neglected, and at-risk children... as well as the staff who lovingly care for them at Tennyson Center for Children.

What little boy doesn't love a sweet puppy, right? :o)
This cutie pie is a cut file from KaDoodle Bug Designs, titled Time to Celebrate Dog. I used bright and cheerful papers from Doodlebug Designs, surrounding the pup with a paw print frame from the Silhouette Online Store. I wanted it to be like he was frolicking through the adorable tree-filled park. :o) I slightly altered the frame so there was less white space on the outskirts of the paw prints.
I love the circular sentiments Kimberly offers and Stamping All Around Spring is one of my favorites! I paired the fun birthday greeting with one of the gorgeous metal dies from Tiny Doilies 2. For a final festive touch, I topped the puppy's party hat with a pom made from Maraschino twine. I resisted the urge to add a plethora of sparkles since this is for a little boy, but I did sneak in some sparkling Core Couture paper for the paw prints and twinkling eyes. :o) 

Nestled beneath the celebratory doggie bone are five little hearts, cut out with the versatile Scrapping Life Cards Metal Dies. It's fun finding places to tuck a little extra love within projects. :o)

A peek at the colorful interior and the dimension on the front created with foam tape:
Thank you for visiting and have a blessed and Happy Easter! :o)
