There's a new guy in town...

...and he is the cutest thing you have ever seen; literally! Meet Radar, my dad's new little puppy. Is he not the most precious thing ever? Just look at that face!!

                                   
 He is a Brittany Spaniel; the third dog of this loving breed that my parents have been happy to raise. My dad is a big time hunter; pheasant, duck, deer, elk. Brittanies are fabulous hunting dogs and wonderful companions. And did I already mention that he is incredibly cute?


My parents asked the kiddos and I to puppy sit yesterday and of course I had to bring a little something for the new little guy. He was the inspiration for the puppy gift set project below. Now, my papers that I used are a couple years old. I have been hanging on to this puppy paper from the Basic Grey June Bug line; thinking maybe I needed to buy a puppy just so I could use this ultra cute paper for something. And now I had the perfect opportunity. 
I wanted a simple little card for my ma and pa, just to say congrats on their new little dude. The papers are all from the older Basic Grey line June Bug, craft paper from Archivers and the mini alpha stickers are from Glitz Design. All puppies need treats for good behavior so a goodie jar was in order. I love these glass jars that you can find at your local Target store. So versatile for all sorts of gift giving.


Next up, a little picture frame to hold a sweet pic of this little guy's cute furry face. I hand cut several of the puppies from the paper and adhered them with pop dots for dimension.

A little twine, some kraft paper, a couple bone buttons and paint and it was done!


And the scraps did not go to waste either. I put those to good use and made up a few puppy themed tags. You just never know when there might be another fur baby that will need a gift or two. 

That's all for tonight. I am off to call my parents to check on sweet Puppy Radar and see how he is adjusting to his new home. Thanks for visiting me!

XOXO, Nik
