Paper Pretties Monday

** Please scroll down for the Love to Create Challenge **

Hi!  Thanks for coming back.  I really missed doing my post last week for Paper Pretties, but did you happen to catch the line up from the DT?  Wow!!  So I'm feeling better and I've done a lot of creating in the past couple of days so I have some fun stuff coming up to share with you.  This week's challenge at Paper Pretties is....

Going Green

My card features a super cute this puppy.  Meet Clover...

I really wish, after I got my card together and stepped back to look at it, that I would've colored him a bit lighter.  Maybe it's just that he didn't photograph well this way, in person he's pretty cute.

I found this really great St. Patrick's Day digi scrapbooking kit for free by S. Braxton.  I wish I could say how I stumbled onto it because its really cute.  But what I can tell you is where I got the inspiration from.... the layout is from the great sketch at The Sweet Stop and I also added a bit of twine just so I can squeak in with the Joni and Team at Raise The Bar.

]Alrighty, enjoy the rest of your day and join us in the fun.
