Stampendous Patient Pup


I made this Christmas card with an adorable Stampendous patient pup stamp, coloring with Copics warm tones and adding a red santa hat to match the long retired red ribbon from SU! I added a piece of red/white twine around the ribbon and called this one done.

I'm sharing this with the Jingle Belles challenge  which is "Not a Creature was Stirring" - in other words, add a creature or animal to your Christmas card.

I'm also sharing it with Craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge #357 which is anything goes as long as it's Christmas, with an option of adding something with wings.

Also adding it to the CHNC Christmas Challenge Extra for October 2017 - which is always anything goes as long as it's Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by and do have yourself a fantastic day!

{on a side note, does anyone know of a fix yet for the followers Google error 502? I noticed the followers disappeared on my blog and were replaced with this error code. I read that some bloggers removed the gadget and re-installed it with the same error code showing.}

Just want to pinch the cheeks of this sweet pup! What a great stamp, Carol! The way you have the ribbon down the side, it almost looks like he is peeking around a curtain.

That's weird about the Google Error thing. I've never seen it before so really don't know anything about how to fix it.

What a beautiful card, the image is just adorable.

Seems Blogger is having a problem with the Follower gadget. Mine is the same too. I googled the problem and it seems that the Blogger are getting their technical team to try and fix the problem, as it is so widespread. Hopefully they will get it sorted soon as it's stopping us following new blogs. xx

Aaaah, what a sweet pup! I love how you've designed your card, Carol! He looks like he is peeking from behind a curtain!!

You know, grrrrr to Blogger AGAIN! About two months ago, after almost a year of not being able to follow anyone without a bunch of steps, it finally starting working again. Now this! If it doesn't work when it comes back, I'm gonna be so unhappy. Altho, grrr again, even if it comes back there has been no longer any further information given when you click on the face, like about their blogs, hence I've not been able to do my New Friends Corner for months!

I didn't know my followers were missing until I just saw your post, but what I have noticed in the last week is that my comments just up and disappear as I'm typing them! I get about one or two sentences in and then boom, it all disappears and I have to start all over again. So frustrating and it happens on all of my devices. I googled to see if there was any info on it, but don't see anything so I'm wondering if anyone has had this happen. Sigh.

Sorry. You struck a nerve! Have a great Sunday! Hugs, Darnell

You have ADDED the Santa's hat?...WOW! It seems part of the puppy stamp, such great mix you made!! Your talent is always stunning! The red ribbon with the string is just perfect to compliment the card!

As for the followers thingy, I just noticed this morning, Blogger up to no good again, I'll sit and wait and hope for the best, it must be from their end, for it to happen to so many people.

Oh my goodness...this is so adorable. I love this wee puppy.

I have been making dog and puppy cards for charity. Little Miss C has raised well over Three thousand dollars for charity now. The last couple of years have been for a animal shelter. I have promised here 30 dog cards for her booth. They are sure fun to make.
