Time for a Dog Walk...{Blog Hop} & a new Sketch!

IT'S FRIDAY ~ and I have a special treat for you today!  My sweet friend Wendy & her fun little puppy Gilby are hosting a Dog Walk {blog hop} with lots of fabulous puppy treats {blog candy prizes} to celebrate her new and improved blog.   Wendy has lots of friends & their furry pals joining in today.  Here are some pictures of my sweet furry pals ~ Jazmine (our Golden) and Peco (our little terrier shelter rescue ~ btw, she came with the silly name).

 
 
So the theme of the day is MAKEOVER ~ since Wendy's blog has had a face lift.  For my "makeover" project, I used an image from the Zenspirations line by Gourmet Rubber Stamps.  The first time I made the image for this card, I colored the vases but I didn't think it packed enough PUNCH!  So I decided to use some of this pretty pattern paper from My Minds Eye and paper piece them.  I also added some gems to the flowers and that really stepped up the card.  It's amazing how just a few little details can make a difference.

I pulled double duty on my card today {gotta love that}~ and this is also the very first installment of the Weekly Recipe sketch challenge for Gourmet Rubber Stamps

Before...


After...


You can find a list of all the players on the Dog Walk {blog hop} below and over on Wendy's new blog ~ you won't want to miss out because there are some FABULOUS puppy treats {blog candy} by some amazing sponsors ~ a special thanks to the sponsors for all the fun treats! 


So....it's time to leave some love on all the blogs!  You can leave comments on this post now until Sunday, September 25th at 10:30pm (ET).  Wendy will be randomly picking winners from all of our blog comments. 

Puppy Hugs to you today!
