Everlasting love

I use this wonderful subway art image from quite often. Love i’s powerful message. For the inside sentiment, I print off the following, “Rest in these truths. And remember, YOU are loved with an EVERLASTING love!”
(Today I need this promise because I am a soggy, sneezy, miserable mess. Staying home from work with a horrible head cold. Ugh and Yuk. My sore nose feels like it is the size of my face. And my hubby is making fun of how I talk. Thad is nod fuddy! However, he is also waiting on me… so thad is nidce!)

I am a lover of animals and critters so they often show up in my cards. Was blessed to have a mom with a large heart, so just about anything we brought home got to stay! Dogs, cats, salamanders, rabbits, and more. I even had one of those “bug boxes” and cared for a many a ladybug, caterpillar and other creepy crawlies (except spiders. Never spiders. I squish them with no remorse!) For today's card I found some great dog sentiments via google and fussy cut a Scottie pup to showcase them. The inside sentiment reads, “…but it can’t wiggle its butt when you walk in the door!”

I think this might be the first card I’ve ever made that used just scrapbook paper and accessories. Wanted to make another card for the Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge using pink, green and red and this paper almost jumped into my hands! It als works fro three of Crafty Hazelnut’s challenges, too. So…. Win, win!

I stamped several images of this cute little Eureka snowbear when I had it out last week. So you might be seeing him pop up often in future cards. This card also includes a shaker element plus metal charm so that I can enter it into a few other challenges. (The shaker includes glitter and a dozen plastic snowflakes which are all clumped together! I even added some rock salt to the mix that is supposed to prevent static and clumping. I guess they just are really bonded!)
