Monkeying Around


The image used on this card is an old but favorite one.  The monkey hanging out of the window with his hair blowing in the wind reminds me of my brother-in-law so I designed this card for his birthday!

FIDO... Companion, Friend, Pet


Hi everyone!  Another clean and simple card for the local humane society.  I love the FIDO doghouses on this paper and didn't want to cover it too much so decided to pair it with the sentiment stamp to the left of the image.  To embellish the card I added a scallop border and some twine.

Thanks For Your Kindness


Hey everyone!  So sorry I've neglected my blog lately.  I've been working on a project for the humane society to help raise funds for the animals in their care.

I'm still making pet themed thank you handmade cards for the humane society.  I've shut down the Sending Paw Prints blog though, there wasn't a lot of activity so it didn't make sense to keep the challenges going.  If you are interested in making blank pet themed thank you handmade cards please check out the cards for a cause tab at the top of my blog.

Today's card features an image from the Cat stamp set by Jane's Doodles.  The image was stamped on water color paper and colored in using watercolor crayons.

Sending Paw Prints Challenge #5


I'm back with a clean and simple card today that requires no stamping!  I found this fun patterned paper at the local craft store that has row upon row of cute kitties.  There is a similar one with puppies I haven't played with yet.

I shopped my stash and found some patterned papers that match the green paw print.  The card base is dark brown cardstock.

I'm entering this card in Sending Paw Prints Challenge #5 to make any pet themed thank you handmade card... with GREEN.

Pet Themed Memorial Thank You



Hello!  Today I've a pet themed memorial thank you card for Sending Paw Prints Challenge #2.  The challenge is to make any pet themed thank you handmade card... with blue.

Sending Paw Prints supports our furry friends by collecting blank pet themed thank you handmade cards and donating them to animal shelters and rescue groups for them to write heartfelt thank you messages to donors, foster parents and volunteers.

Occasionally animal shelters and rescue groups receive donations made “in memory of” or “in honor of” a pet, loved one, family member or friend. For this occasion animal shelters and rescue groups like to send a blank pet themed memorial handmade card with a thank you sentiment or no sentiment.

I really liked the sympathy card Kim at Joyful Creations made using Freshly Made Sketch 270 and was inspired to create this CASE pet themed memorial thank you card for Sending Paw Prints.


The pattered paper is an old collection by Stampin' Up I found in my stash.  The cardstock is Bashful Blue, Black and White.  I die cut the branch and cat using black cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped in back and is from the Keep It Simple Thank You stamp set by Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
