Paper Smooches + i {heart} papers = Help for Homeless Pups!

Welcome to an amazing hop -- that will inspire you in your crafting, and hopefully will also inspire you to support a wonderful cause.

My sweet friend Kate (owner of i {heart} papers) suggested an idea to Kim Hughes to create a stamps and dies to support our rescued furry friends. They worked together to create some really fun dog rescue products! A portion of the sales will be donated to Home for Good Dog Rescue.  Kim asked us to share these fun products with you, through our projects. 

I love these sets so much! I used both the Paws for a Cause and Lucky Dog sets for my card today, along with Teresa Collins Memories 6x6 DP. I stamped my dog in VersaFine Sepia and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.
Both of my girls (see my sidebar) are rescues, and I am thrilled to have these sets and share this cause with you.
