July Calendar Girls "Cute and Cuddly"

I'm a bit late in getting my card posted today but it was to dark to get a picture when I finished my card I thought I'd wait for better lighting and then post...Our lovely hostess this month is Miss July our Lovely Linda. Here is her challenge for this month:

Miss July: Linda

I would like it to be "Cute and Cuddly". The cuddly being a huggable moose, or a raccoon, or a bear, etc. I really enjoy the Riley stamps and Penny Black hedgehogs, but I'm asking you to pick your favorite furry creature stamp and make a card with any sentiment. I happen to be a hoarder of cute stamps, maybe because my kids share in my stamping addiction. It's always fun to see those little critters come to life on a card.

Can't wait to see what you come up with.


I love cute and cuddly as well and have many stamps to chose from in this category. I chose a little doggie from Whipper Snapper. (One that was purchased this spring in WI during a very fun get together), called pocket pup. What a fun little guy to work with...I chose a sketch from MFT to use for my card. I used mahogany paper for the base and used dsp from echo park (woof stripe) and Best creations (puppy love) on my card. Here is my card:

The sketch from MFT:

And the inside of my card:

On the inside I used a piece of the puppy love dsp as I thought it was so darn cute.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my card. Please stop by the other calendar girls and check out their creations as well....I am sure you will not be disappointed...

Until next time,

Carol, this card is adorable! Love that puppy image - just too darling! And your bones. What fun!!!

This little guy sure is cute, and once he runs himself around a few times, I imagine quite cuddly. Sometimes I wish one of mine could fit into my pocket. Maybe I just need bigger pockets? ;)
