Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea

What a nice Sunday weather day, finally!  We are doing some work
on our pond, replacing 15 year old water fall and skimmer box.
The Rocks that we handpicked years ago at a Quarry to place around
our pond seemed to much lighter back then!!  All 13 fish survived the winter
and we are looking forward to getting it put back together and enjoying
the view from our patio.......

This week's card is for all you dog lovers..........

I bought this die because my daughter's dog looks exactly like the dog
on the die.  I made her a Mother's Day card with it and she loved it.

Stamped sentiment -Stampendous
Die -Impression Obsession - Dog and Bird Frame (Die804-Z)
Stitched Banner die - Paper Rose(16871)
Background Paper - Lemon Craft - Grow Old With Me
Green and Dark Brown card stock
Sentiment stamped with Versafine Clair Brown ink

I die cut the image with green card stock.
I ran just the dog through with dark brown card stock
The flowers with peach card stock
The bird with blue card stock

So here is the real thing.  Lily was brought from South Carolina
by a rescue group.  She was picked up on the streets as a
stray.  It was soon discovered that she was pregnant
and she gave birth to 9 little black pups.  Our daughter
went to see her at the home she was being fostered in and
decided she wanted  Lily and not one of her pups.
She came to live with Heidi and her family just before Christmas
two years ago, and we couldn't even look her in the eye
at that time she was so scared.  After many classes and
much love and attention from Heidi, she is now a therapy
Dog and visits hospitals and nursing homes, and
brings much joy to the folks she meets.
And did I say, she loves Heidi very much and Heidi
loves her too.........don't you just love Happy Endings....

That's me for this week.  Have a good week, enjoy the weather, and Until later...

I do love a happy ending. Oh isn't Lily the sweetest looking dog.

Your card is super cute and I'm sure your daughter did love it. It's really a perfect card for her.

Awe! What a precious pup!! He looks so handsome! :) I can see why she would love your card! For one, you made it and you've done a wonderful job creating the scene and adding the papers and colors to your design too! I love it!! HUGS

She is such a beautiful dog, Sue! Your daughter must have loved that gorgeous card. Your bright colors and lovely scene make it especially endearing. Hope you will photograph your pond! It's miraculous that the fish survive your hard winters. It's fun doing renos and maintenance, even though it is time consuming, because of the joy it brings us. And I imagine, your pond's water feature brings sweet sounds, lots of birds, and a fun habitat for one and all! hugs, de

A fabulous card Sue, but Lily certainly steals the show - I'm so pleased that she found a wonderful home with your daughter and can now bring pleasure to others - Ramsey will soon be as big as her, he grows so fast.
