It Must be Love

I finally got some craft time in today! It felt great to unwind after work and stamp up some lil' cuties. Hopefully I'll have the time for this to be my nightly routine :)

and I was so happy to see a new Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge! Yall know they're my favorite... sink into this bold photo...

SPARKS inspiration
I focused on the light green and red polka dot patterns, and did my best to not lean into the Christmasy side of things. I also did paper piecing! It's been a while :)

A little (fat) puppy just in love with the neighborhood fire hydrant. Ahhh siiigh... new love. The Paper Smooches stamp sets I used are: "Smoocheroos" for the sentiment and the heart, "Chubby Chums" for the pup, and "Promenade" for the fire hydrant. All papers are various scrap pieces in my stash, mainly DCWV 'dots, stripes, and plaid' stack, and my misc Colorbok stack.

And can you believe it, there are NO stickles on this card! I know.
