Spotlight Card & Puppy's Name!

We're going through the adjustment of a new puppy--it's been so long. His name is Friedrich Mannheim & we call him Fritz.  His best friend right now is a rubber kong toy--constantly chewing with those sharp puppy teeth!  No time to really design a card, but I've had this idea in my mind for awhile & in 3 sittings finally got it done.  I like spotlight cards, but haven't done very many.  I thought a spotlight panel would be neat to do with the Hero Arts Silhouette Grass stamp.  I copied the scrapling I did for the Hero Arts scramble a few weeks ago--just used a different section of the stamp.  I inked the stamp with 3 Distress Inks & then spritzed before stamping.  Distress Glitters are added, but hard to tell from the picture.  Virginia's View Challenge is about to close & I'll link up there.
I'm reading blogs a few at a time using my laptop where I can see what puppy dude is doing.  Thanks for understanding.  Hope your week is going well.  We've had beautiful weather until tonight.  I keep telling Fritz Oregon dogs don't mind the rain, but he's not yet convinced--LOL!

  11. He's such a cute puppy with those little tufts of hair standing up on his back. My neighbor has a mini schnauzer named Fritz too. Theirs is black and white and several years old.

  12. Fritz...oh, what a sweet name; it suits your furry little cutie-patootie perfectly! I suspect you occasionally lapse into calling him "Fritz-y" *grin* Truly, I am so excited that he's found a most loving home with you, and you've found a loving puppy for your home! A little family of three...and we know who's receiving a whole bunch of spoiling and pampering! That schnauzer face is irresistibly adorable! Your card: gorgeous! Love the spotlight panel - a technique that you use with absolute flair and style! Awesome post, my friend! Hugs~c
