Sisterhood of Crafters - RED

Hello Everyone!
There's a new challenge starting today at The Sisterhood of Crafters.
I'm thrilled to be your host today and with
this being the 'month of LOVE' I chose the color RED for today's theme.
I've also created a mood board to help inspire you.

I was inspired by the fabric patterns, the white puppy & red tulips.
Here's what I've created . . .

I'm not a huge animal lover (don't dislike them ... just don't want to be
bothered with the clean up at this stage of my life).  We always
had animals when I was growing up on a small farm and  always had
a dog when I was raising the family ... but now I want to be able
to pick up & go when hubby says let's go on vacation!

This little guy is just too cute!  His name is 'Buster the Dog' and he's by Elizabeth Craft.
He came from the Dies R Us Store but currently he is out of stock.  There are
other adorable animal dies that you'll want to check out!  These are the kind
of animals I can handle so you'll be seeing more of them in the near future!  LOL

The flowers are by Poppystamps ... 'Tulip Branch' and I've die cut them
twice ... once in green (for the stemming) and once in red for
the flowers.  The grass was created using the Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside Border'
and the fence is an older  Poppystamps die called 'Picket Fence'  #827.

Challenges to share in:
