I just adore my dogs.  You've seen in movies the way that wealthy women pamper their poodles and pugs, well I'm not quite that bad, not quite.  Mostly I think because they are Mastiffs and at eight months old (giant puppies) they are 80lbs, so they are way too big to pick up and carry around with me, but I think if I could I probably would!

This cute little digi by Mo Manning called Pug Love is a pretty close representation of what my dogs looked like as wee little pups.  I've used Prismacolor pencils, but instead of using an odorless solvent to blend I experimented with baby oil to see which I prefer.  Still undecided on that.

This card is using the layout at Mojo Monday this week, a nice simple one but that suited me as this card is intended for a man for Valentines Day and you know what they think of all things frilly and frou frou.

I'm also entering into Mo's Challenge Blog as the theme this week is "My Favourite Things" and this card includes my favourite colours (creams and browns), my favourite animals (my puppies) and it's for my favourite man (my partner).


  1. ooooooo what a cute image morgan,

  2. Oh my gosh...is this a pug card?!!! Its absolutely adorable; its so precious that I find myself ooh-ing and ahhh-ing over it. I have a pug and shih-tzu hybrid called a "pug-tzu," and I just love her so much; so, this card really touched my heart.
