Puppy Love- Cards for Grace

Jennifer McGuire is having a card drive for sweet little girl whose twin sister has lost her battle with cancer. I can't imagine the confusion and sorrow that Grace is feeling and it's lovely that Jennifer is organizing this outpouring of love to comfort and uplift her. I was really inspired by Kathy's fun card featuring her furry friend and thought I could do the same with a photo of my little Chihuahua, Tia. Heather has some great ideas too!
I hope Grace is a fan of dogs, especially pampered little princess dogs. For this card I used paper from the Cherry Delicious collection by Sassafrass.  Stamps from Hero Arts: S5435 Graph Background, CL342 Everyday Sayings, CL380 Truly Appreciated (inside message- Sending you lots of hugs...and puppy love!).
I thought I would include this card in Anne's July Challenge: Animals! It couldn't be more perfect since it features my sweet little formerly homeless Tia. Anne's challenge this month benefits "A Place to Bark". It's a wonderful animal rescue organization and operates on private donations. Thanks for checking it out!

Thought for the Day: Psalm 37:4-5 ~ "Delight yourself....in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass."
Blessings,
nancy
