Precious Puppy Farewell Card

My last project tonight is a farewell card to my co-teacher.  I'm not returning to school next year, so I wanted a nice way to show her appreciation for working with me.

We are the Precious Puppies class, so using a puppy on the card was almost required -- and a great way to enter The Pink Stamper's pet challenge.

Cartridges Used:
Boys Will Be Boys
Create a Critter

I haven't written a message inside yet, but I plan a play on words about life being "ruff" without the Puppies class.

My favorite thing about this card is the monochromatic background layers.  All those red patterns are from various scraps, and they just happened to mix well.  I love it when that happens.

I was also inspired by Card Patterns Sketch 114, so I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

The Pink Stamper:  NSD Challenge #10 - Pet Card or Layout


  1. What an adorable card. I really like the dog and your co-teacher will too!

  2. Awe, so super sweet! I love that you stuck to one colour and changed up the patterns. :)

  3. Isn't he the cutest? Love your take on this weeks sketch over at cardpatterns. Glad you joined us.
