Cold Noses – Warm Hearts

Today I am playing along with the Paper Players #281 theme challenge, which is Cats & Dogs and also Can You Case It #106 sketch challenge.

This was really a fun combination of challenges to create a card for.  I was also able to incorporate a Valentine’s Day card into it.

I used a Papertrey Ink stamp and die set called Come All Ye Faithful.  I have had this set for a few years and bought it just for the dachshund and the sweaters.  Here is why…..


This is our senior pup, Tess.  She is almost 17 years young and always wears a “house” sweater.

I love the sentiment and thought that this would be a perfect card for Tess to give to her “Dad” for Valentine’s Day!

Thanks for looking in on my card today.  I hope you have a wonderful day.




  1. Oh my goodness, I just cannot tell you how sweet your little Tess is! We have had a few dachshunds in our family and they are just my favorite! Unfortunately, they’ve all gone to doggie heaven, so I will have to get my fix by looking at yours! And her little sweater is adorable, I can see why you wanted to get that PTI set! Thanks so much for playing with my Paper Players challenge this week with your adorable card!
