Adopt a Shelter Pet Blog Hop

Our puppy, rescued in May of 2005, with my oldest when he was six months

Good Saturday morning!  Welcome to Broken Treasures and the “Adopt A Shelter Pet” Hop! October is National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, but we wanted to honor and celebrate all of our furry friends! If you've come from visiting Court at Court's Craft Corner, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to hop along with us, you can go to and start at the beginning.

I used the Puppy in a Present Digital Stamp over at Paper Crafting World you should check out all the super cute digital stamps over there and really inexpensive too!

I made a birthday card using the easel technique I posted about earlier this week.  I cut the card out using the Art Philosophy Cartridge (it is for sure my favorite!!)  For the tutorial and more information see the Owl Card I made here.

I paper pieced the puppy, box and bow using CTMH colored pencils to color in the puppy and Roxie patterned paper for the box.

 The Bow is a piece of Cranberry Cardstock, stamped and decorated with the Red Glitz Gel.  I also cut out a rose from the Roxie patterned paper and stamped it with Happy Birthday.  Do you like the Glitz Glitter Gel?  Want a chance to get a bottle for FREE?  Great!  It is part of the blog candy package I'm offering with this blog hop! :)
