Hi all, I want to thank you all for your wonderful comments on my previous posts, I do apologise for not being around but we are trying to adjust to our beautiful new baby bundle, lol.  
I thought I would share this card with you that I made before the birth of my Grandson, this is the first time I have been able to really sit down to do work on my computer.
I have a little graphic at the end of this post that hopefully you will have ago with, I was asked if I would share this on my blog to generate some fun and an awareness that February is not only the month of Love but on February 20th it is 
how awesome is that, although everyday is love my pet day for me and many of you I am sure, but please try join in the fun.
Here are a couple of sites that you can visit
My card features a digital image from CHING-CHOU KUIK called Key to my Heart, I have coloured her with markers, the papers are Bearly Mine, I have added a SU stamped sentiment and used my SU punch for the butterflies, I also used my label punch for the gold strips, I then added red beads in a bottle and some flowers.

 I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Now on to the fun part, I was asked by Rachel at Puppyspot if I would share this chart with you.

How would you go about choosing a new puppy to join your family?  Well here is a Breed Compatibility chart that could give you some idea of what breed to opt for,  it let's you know their traits and what other breeds they are best to team with,  try it out and see what you come up with, leave your answer in a comment and as an added bonus I will choose 1 or maybe 2 of you to win a prize that is craft related.

Love & hugs

Awesome card sweetie. Love everything about it. Sorry I can't read the breed list. I tried copying it and making larger in MCS but it is just fuzzy.

So understanding that you would want to spend some time with your little one of course! :) Your card is so gorgeous Lorraine! I just love the touches of gold with the butterflies and your coloring on this image is stunning!! Thanks for sharing your chart. I can't see it very well, but I did some reading up about dachshunds before I got my beloved Mocca about 11 years ago...she has been so fun and certainly my personality type for sure! LOL!! Wishing you a lovely weekend! HUGS

Fabulous card today lorraine, a very beautiful image, wonderful colouring and design.
I love the thought of a new puppy...you tempted me to look at dog breed sites...so many gorgeous dogs, though I tend to prefer the larger ones, just personal choice, I have nothing against small breeds ( only those irresponsible owners who think that just because their dog is small it's ok for it to be untrained and out of control!) We have been lucky enough to own 3 wonderful Great Danes...and to me they are the best breed ever, big, lovable softies (even if they do dribble).

Hope you're enjoying loads of wonderful cuddles with that gorgeous baby!

Lovely card Lorraine full of super detail. Thanks for the details of Love your pet day. I love my dog and he's good company for crafting with at home. Sounds like life is good if busy with you with new grandson and lots going on. Zx

I'm sure you are loving all your baby cuddles!
Stunning card, beautifully coloured and I love your golden accents
I'd love a beagle but I reckon it would be too full of energy for my wee Ruby, she'd rather have one that liked snoozing as much as she does!
