BEST BUDS - TS Monday Challenge plus some cuties!!!

Our challenge for the Totally Stampalicious Monday Challenge this week was to use piercing.  Well,  I pretty much always use piercing, so this was an easy one for me. I used the girls from Best Bud Brats set.  I used a couple of EK Success border punches, my Nesties, and some celery ribbon behind a Prima rose.  What sweeties these girls are!!!!!!! 

Be sure to visit the Totally Stampalicious Blog to see the fab creations of the rest of the DT AND to see how you and join right in the fabulous fun!!!

BUT......Before you do that, take a look at a couple of other cutie patooties.....

On the right is our eight year old Cairn Terrier, Pepper......he is the one who basically 'hates' any other critter with four legs.......well....that is until......he gained a sister......On the left is our 4 month old puppy, Angel.  She has convinced him that she is okie dokie.....and surprisingly, Pepper just loves her and playing in the backyard with her.  Phew!!!!  Aren't they awfully cute?????

I am also entering my card into the Catch the Bug Challenge which was to use images or babies/children.  Also for Aly's Sunday Challenge . Card Cupid's Challenge, I Did It Creations to make a spring card.  Also for the Crafty Pad Challenge to use a digi image (I am still waiting for the postal system to deliver my REAL stamp of this image).  This is also for the Creative Inspiration Paint Challenge to be inspired by Easter colors.  Hello Cutie Challenge inspired me with the colors.  I used border punches and dies cuts for Let's Ink It Up.  I used embossing on my main image for Paper Sundaes.

I'm such a sucker for puppies, and just can't stop looking at Angel's tiny little face! Her expression is just dear, and Pepper looks so happy to have a companion to share the fun times with! Great photo!
