  1. The layered die cuts are my favorite too, and I love your stars! Cute puppy paws on the first one too.

  2. You nailed these cards. Great work!

  3. I like all your cards, but the doggie-card is soo adorable ♥

  4. I think ALL your cards look fabulous, but have to admit, I'm always drawn to the cute little Doxie cards!! I have three myself, so they are very special to me.

    As for your Letterpress cards...I think it's looks wonderful and in card-making I never really consider a right or wrong...it's all Art and that's what makes it's so fun!! :)

  5. The dog-card is very cute! :-) Your idea to make faux-metal-paw-prints was a greate one!
