Happy Year of the Dog!

Here is a little new years puppy for you to download and copy in honor of the Chinese year of the dog. For my card, I printed on red cardstock and resized the two smaller images. Enjoy!

Daisy & Clover

Here is a digital stamp for you. I designed Daisy & Clover for a dear friend who has a miniature mule named Dennis the Menace. I include a little thank you card in all my shipments with Daisy & Clover on the front. Hope you like them as much as I do.
