Paws ~ a ~ tively Adorable

Hello all of you wonderful paper artists!

Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are those
who dwell in Your house presence; they will
be singing Your praises all the day long. Selah
[ pause, and calmly think of that]!

  2. Linda, your title was correct. It is Paws-a-tively ADORABLE!!! I have some stamps in my stash that really intimidate me. Not sure why you were, you packed in some beautiful color. It looks like I could reach through the computer and touch the dog! I really love how you did the paw prints on the inside. I have never done that, but it is a super touch I will have to remember in the future. AMAZING job :)
