This card is a Vicki/Jeannie challenge… we decided to use raindrops from A Child’s Year… I haven’t seen Vicki’s card as I write the and I am so excited to do so!!… Here is a link to her blog! So be sure and check out her card…. I was just too excited when I finished this card… I was excited about the depth… and the feeling it gave me… I so hope that you like it too… thank you in advanced for your comments… they brighten my day and keep me going!!… Hugs and Love, Jeannie

A Child’s Year
Raindrops cut @ w 0.43 x h 0.86 …. On the Cricut I would cut these @ ¾ an inch.
Doodle Charms
Puppy dogs(2) and its shadow blackouts(2) and its layers (1) cut @ 5 1.50 x h 1.22.… I welded the shadow blackouts to the dog houses see mat shot…. On the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 ¼ inches using the Cricut I would still cut the puppy dog shadows I would glue them to the dog house by the ears and put pop dots behind them.
Sun cut @ w 2.02 x h 1.64... on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 ½ inches.
Puppy feet… I used an oval and 4 tiny circles…I welded the circles to the oval for the toes…. The oval is cut @ w 0.27 c h 0.37 and the circles are cut @ w 0.11 x h 0.10... Using the Cricut I would leave the feet out or make the cutting out an oval at ½ and inch and using a whole punch for the toes.
Paper Pups
Dog Houses cut @ w 2.71 x h 3.16 … on the Cricut I would cut these @ 3 ¼ inches. …I welded a rectangle from George to the opening of one of the dog houses this rectangle is cut @ 1.28 x h 1.73... On the Cricut you can cut this rectangle out separately and glue to the backside of the doghouse…. One of the dog houses is off the page because all I needed from that piece is the roof line…which is popped from the top dog house…. The video explains all of this really good.
Easter 2010
Grass cut @ w 1.97 x h 1.29...on the and w 1.77 x h will have to unlink the width and height to get these measurements … On the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 inch and 1 ¼ inches and trim the length to the size I needed.
Create a Critter
Flowers and their layers cut @ w 1.20 x h 1.34...I welded two of these to the front shorter pieces of grass… on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 ½ inches.
Card base is 4 ¼ x 5 ½, Frame Piece 4 x 5 ¼ , Background piece 3 ½ x 4 ¾… this cuts are on the inside and outsides of my cards… Sentiment piece 2 ¾ x 4 inside only….. I cut all of these with my paper trimmer.
The Paper Packs I used for this card are shown on my video.

These cards are just too cute. I absolutely love them. I guess I better get paper pups cart before it is gone. Hear they are retireing it. Love the dog house and most of the animals on the cart. Great card. Cute theme. We did have an unusually long rainy season though and it does start to wear on you after a while even thou we really do need it. We are finally getting some beautiful weather on the west coast and it is almost summer!!!!!
Thanks for the smiles that your card brought.
