Puppy Love

Good morning everyone and Happy New Year

Today starts a new challenge at Moving Along with The Times
Claire is hosting the challenge and she would like to see our Thank You cards. What a great theme right after Christmas... I mailed this card to my In-Laws to thank them for all of the wonderful Christmas Gifts!
My card features one of my new super sweet stamps from Lili of the Valley- this one is called  Woof You... it's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics. The sentiments are from Hero Arts, the "Sending You Love" stamp is also new. The bingo card is from Teresa Collins, stamped with VersaMark and dusted with chalk. The DP is from The Paper Studio and to finish it up I added a photo corner cut with an QuicKutz die.

I also wanted to share a couple of pictures of our new bundle of fur!! Her name is Maddie... my husband and I adopted her from a local rescue a few weeks ago.  She's a Jack Russell Terrier mix and approximately 5 months old.
Look at that adorable face...
and here she is with her big brother Quinn!
She is such a sweetie and a perfect fit for our family. The training is going very well too- just this week she learned how to walk up the stairs (we still have to carry her down) and she learned how to walk on a leash... oh what a big girl! :)

Well, that's all from me today... thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to the challenge blog and check out the fabulous creations by the other team members!

Happy New Year Tammy, tried to pop In yesterday but my silly computer hung then I never got back to it! Love your sweet thank you card and adore your pup. I'm a cat person but I have to say I love jack Russell's as my neighbour had one as I grew up and I trained her to run up the wall so I could grab her then take her to ours! Think my Mum cottoned on though as Pippa only escaped when I was home! Jx

Just had to comment on how adorable Maddie is! My jrt was bred and only had 2 puppies and Maddie is the exact double of Phoebe, the first born, my sister has her and I just cannot believe how identical they are! She sure looks 100% JRT to me!
