My Dog Ate My Paper Craft Stash!

Yes that's right, I went away for a week and when I came home I found a mess down my hallway.  My dog Baxter is over four years old and he still loves toys and to chew paper, cardboard, and water bottles.  He got into a basket of contraband items (non SU!) and took delight in chewing a box of chipboard letters apart of which he left a trail down the hall just for me to clean up.  I had what was left sitting on my stamp table and decided to add them to my junk styled Valentine card.

This card is a conglomeration of goodness.  I have used the Beau Chateau Side Notes mixed with the Attic Boutique Side Notes and DSP.  I have also got a strip of Baja Breeze Pleated Satin Ribbon along with Very Vanilla Seam Binding.  But that's not all.  There are also tiny bits of bling from the Blossom Builders pack.  And since they were out I tucked a flower in from that kit too.

There is lots of fun things to see.  Pop over to The Shabby Tea Room to see this week's Valentine with a mail or postage element challenge.  The cards there are gorgeous.  Also follow along with Shirley's Blog Hop.

  1. Hello Elizabeth
    sorry to hear about your doggy disaster! I have a cat and dog that both love to chew paper so when I leave my craft room I always have to remember to shut the door otherwise I will find the remnants of a creation or a chewed piece of that paper I have been saving for something special! However when I am in the room -- my dog just lays there and gets glitter all over her!
    Your card is just lovely! I love all the details and colour great work! I think I will head on over to the Shabby Tea Room it sounds like fun!
    Oh one question how do you get the pin it button at the end of the post? Do you add with html?
    Thanks for sharing your story and your creation!

  2. My dog loves paper too. I have to make sure I don't drop anything on the floor while I'm creating or I know I'll have to kiss it goodbye, as he is faster than I am to pick it up! Love your card today! The bling, the flower, the side's just lovely!

  3. Another gorgeous creation by you!! Love the flower, the XO and everything else!! Your work is inspiring!!

  4. I could hardly get through this post with laughter! We have a miniature doxie and if you leave one thing on the floor in comes out in the yard! She is 10 years old and hasn't lost that yen to eat everything in sight. I can only imagine what your house looked like! Miss Daisy would have had a ball with the left overs! Your card is so beautiful. I love the vintage look and all the little treasures tucked away on it. Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  5. Oh no lol!! Sounds like she was acting out? I love your card so much!!!Thank you for sharing your wonderful card with us this week at the Shabby Tea Room :-)
