Dogs or Cats at LRW

Jan is stepping in as our hostess this week.  The challenge is to use a cat or a dog on your card.  Sounds easy enough, right.  Wrong!  Do you know how many cute cat and dog stamps there are out there?  Do you know how tempted I was to buy a new set just because it had a darling puppy on it?  I was having such a tough time choosing from my stash that I guess I thought if I got this new one, the decision would be easy.  Well, I'm happy to say I am stayed true to the little red wagon challenge, no new cute puppy stamps for me.  I pulled this one from my little red wagon.

Here's my card featuring a sweet kitty by Pretty Pink Posh -

I was originally going to put a pup on this card too, but he wouldn't fit.  Since I colored this kitty like the last cat that owned my heart, she won out.  This card was a total CASE from Simon Says Stamp blog here.

I had to place my clouds a bit differently.  I have an issue with my blood that requires me to take a blood thinner.  This means when I cut myself, it takes hours to stop bleeding.  Well, you guessed it, my finger, though bandaged, was still oozing a bit but thankfully because of the cloud, if I hadn't spilled the beans, no one would have ever known, right 😉.

My goodness, I've been talkative today.  Without further delay, I want to send you to Little Red Wagon so you can catch what the girlfriends have created.  Hopefully you will have an easier time with this challenge than I did.  Can't wait to see what you link.

Thanks for stopping by!
