Paper Smooches Special Blog Hop - Woof Woof!

*This is my second post today, to see my Reverse Confetti Color Challenge post, please click here*


Hello! Welcome to a very special blog hop...

Kate (owner of i {heart} papers) suggested an idea to Kim Hughes to create stamps and dies to support our rescued furry friends. They worked together to create some really fun dog rescue products! A portion of the sales will be donated to Home for Good. Kim asked us to share these fun products with you, through our projects.


To add extra fun to our blog hop...we are offering up a prize!

  • TWO winners will be chosen at RANDOM from any of the design team blogs.
  • The prize - A Lucky Dog stamp set, Paws for a Cause stamp set and Dog Icons dies.
  • Just leave a comment on any of the design team blogs listed for your chance to win! (you do not need to comment on all blogs to qualify but it increases your chances) 
  • You have until midnight MT on Wednesday, December 18th to leave a comment. 
  • Please check the IHP Blog on Friday, December 20th to see if you are one of the TWO lucky winners.

I LOVE Paper Smooches, adore dogs and think this cause is fantastic, so I'm super excited to be involved in this very special blog hop! I inked up the puppy from Paws for a Cause with Memento Espresso Truffle ink - in fact I've used the same ink all through the card!


The papers are Color Wash by Pink Paislee, the embossing folder is Whimsy by Lifestyle Crafts and I've also used my fave white twine and enamel dots. The sentiment is from Lucky Dog. You can see the matching dies here - love these!

Here's the inside of my card...


I think this is such a beautiful sentiment. I hope this card gathers dust forever, but it's so nice to have something to comfort when needed.

Here's the full hop list - please be sure to visit everyone and leave comments for your chance to win these special products! Thank you so much to Kim and Kate for the beautiful stamps and chance to help such a worthy cause! *hugs*

  23. You don't want to use sympathy cards for pets any more than you want to use them for humans - but sometimes it is unavoidable. Pets are members of the family too.
