Dog & Books Card - Newtons Nook AllBookedUp Woof CoffeeHouseStories

Played with a Newton's Nook: stamp/die All Booked Up, Woof stencil and Coffee House Stores paper.

I like to read & currently reading the following 2 books: The Whistler by John Grisham (have enjoyed many books by JG) & The Guest List by Lucy Foley (1st time reading by LF and the story is captivating right from the 1st chapter).

I have 2 dogs; a Lab/Retriever Mix that will be 15 (adopted when 7) in Aug this yr and a German Shepherd/Husky (she has an amber eye & a blue eye which is the Husky in her ) that is 4 (adopted when 2). It snowed here in N TX beginning of Feb.

  1. Sweet puppy card! Thanks for playing along with us at the Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero challenge :)

  2. Oh cuteness! Love seeing NND's papers on cards, and yours looks amazing with the stenciling! A darling card! So glad you shared with us at Inky Paws!
    P.S. Your puppies are darling too!

  3. I love your card! I love how you made the background with the paper and the stenciling, and the pup on the books is just too cute! Thank you so much for joining us at the Inky Paws Challenge!

  4. What a awesome idea.Great card. Love your doggie's. Thanks for linking to the Inky Paw's Challenge. Hugs Diane

  5. This is really cute, Melissa. I want you to know that I'm super glad you're back to play along with us and that I've definitely missed having you play along. I know it's frustrating when you don't win (I totally get it). I've played along at SSS challenge for (oh, I don't know but I'll guess...) like ten+ years now and I have yet to win there. My "luck" in winning challenges STINKS. I still play along in a few (and do blog hops) anyway and when I do very occasionally win something, I get SO excited. Anyway...I'm super glad you're back to play along. Just keep linking up and sharing. I appreciate SO much and I look forward to visiting your blog again soon. Have a great week.
