I'm especially excited about my post for today's BLOG HOP sample.  The image comes from our newest Daydream Designer artist/illustrator, Katlyn Traxler.  She has some of the cutest images ever, available at KnK Designs, and I wanted to showcase her and this set before the blog hop was over.  I fell in love with this set immediately.  Cute little Kolar, an inspiration from her own sweet dog, reminds me of my Daisy so this one just stole my heart.

I used one of the patterned papers from Sweet Warm Ups Digi Paper set by Daydream Designs.  The other layers are cardstock: Strawberry Slush, Blushing Bride from Stampin' Up and the white layer and oval frame are from Curious Metallic Cryogen White cardstock from  Love the shimmery glitz of it.  I just added a few more embellishments to finish this fun-loving card.  

 This is a card designed by Katlyn using the same set.  The doggie takes on a totally different look with different colors.  I think she used colored pencils here, and I just love the homespun touch of the stitching.  Adorable, Katlyn.  Your images just make me melt!

YOUR NEXT STOP:  Warm Hearted
and Elizabeth's adorable creations.
