Hidden Hearts

Two more cards of Gus the Beagle/Basset hound.  Is he the mischievous sort?  Or does he get caught in  the wrong place and the wrong time.... those big black eyes seem like trouble to me! 

My challenge in creating these cards is to use all materials on hand.  I have a lot of wonderful supplies (mostly  patterned paper)  that are just stuffed in drawers and folders and they NEED to be used.

Added small punched flowers to the mailbox above.  Used a balled stylist to give the flowers some shape.  Then added sparkly stickles to the centers. Tied the knot on the bow really tight, in creating flat cards that are easy to send as FuN MaiL....

Decided to fussy  cut ( target and cut a specific motif that's printed on paper, rather than randomly cutting the image as we normally do. ) Gus and the mug. 

Makes his image pop out on the card.  One theme throughout is to add a ♥ to the card images that I doodle. Easy to spot in the bottom card, where is it in the top card???  That also gives me another challenge to remember to find a way to add that special touch!

It's supposed to be another real hot, hot day here in the suburbs.  Heat index above 100 degrees.  This will sure be a summer to remember, for a lot of reasons!!!

and finally, also from Pinterest....

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you!

Now go.... brighten someone's day!
