lab-adore you

Hello there! I'm playing along with two challenges today:

I'm planning to make some homemade dog treats to give to Pepper's friends in the neighborhood for Valentine's Day. Here are the tags I created to dress up the little treat bags:

I absolutely adore that little lab image from Avery Elle's Furry Friends Stamp Set! She looks just like our Pepper!!! So sweet! The envelope is from Gleeful Gardens (Lawn Fawn). I dressed it up with a teeny heart from Stinkin' Cute (Lawn Fawn). I used my craft knife to cut a tiny slit to slip the envelope into, so it would look like the dog was carrying it. 

I was inspired by the colors, strips of patterns/textures, and the shape of Lynn's tag in the inspiration photo. And of course the polka dots for the Inkspirational Challenge were calling my name!

Oh...and here's a look at the back of the tag:

It says: "lab-adore you"! And now that I look at it...I'm thinking I'll add a die-cut red heart to the bottom corner (by the "you")...but anyhow. I saw this sentiment in a Newton's Nook set that I don't own (yet) and thought it was a perfect fit. I used Sophisticated Script (Concord & 9th) to spell out "lab" and Harold's ABCs (Lawn Fawn) for the rest. The little dash was added with a Copic multiliner pen.

Thanks for visiting!

Hope you're having a great week so far!
