DeNami Design Mini Cards Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to your next stop on the DeNami Design Mini Cards Blog Hop!!! We're so excited to have you hopping along with us today!!! I hope you are enjoying all of this FANTASTIC inspiration!!! If you're on track, you've arrived here from Isha's BEAUTIFUL blog! If not...no worries...just click HERE to head on over to the DeNami Design Blog, so you can start at the beginning!

I made two 3x3 cards for the hop! Up first:


As soon as I saw this new Open Box image I KNEW I wanted to put puppies (and cats) in it!!! Aren't those scruffy little pups DARLING?!?! And I think the navy, chocolate, kraft and white color combo is fun too!! I stamped the sentiment, "sending you love" on the inside! Here's a peek at that:


For my second card, I used the same basic layout, but used cats instead:


My cat, Oliver James, absolutely positively CANNOT resist climbing into ANY box that enters our house!! So, this card was totally inspired by him and his predictable (and stinkin' cute) mannerisms!!!

I hope you like my mini creations! I had SO MUCH FUN making them! Be sure to leave a comment!!!
