Michelle Perkett Studio Love Letter Blog Hop

I'm finally able to post my pics.  Sorry for the inconvenience!

Welcome to the Michelle Perkett Studio Love Lettter Blog Hop!  If you haven't seen any of Michelle's awesome digital stamps before, then you will be in for a treat!  On top of that, we have a major lineup of awesome bloggers that will show you even more eye candy!  I'll also be offering some blog candy to one of my followers that comments, so make sure you check the bottom of this post to see what you could win!

If you came here from Anjou's blog, you're at the right spot.  If you started here, you're also at the right spot!  This isn't a progressive blog that you need to collect info from each site and fit it together.  If you want to start at the beginning, you can go to Michelle's blog.  We just want you to take in all of this awesome eye candy and hopefully get a few ideas along the way to make some wonderful creations with Michelle Perkett Studio's digital stamps!

Now for my love letter:

Dear Stoney,
I must admit, in the beginning I was a little apprehensive about bringing you into my household.  I've been living alone for years, so I'm pretty set on my ways.  I know I'm probably not the easiest person in the world to get along with due to my Crohn's Disease and other health issues, but through all of these problems you have continued to stand by my side.  You always seem to know when I feeling pain, and you try your best to help me take my mind off of it.   

You came to me as a working dog, but now you have become my best friend.  I can talk to you about anything, and never have to worry about criticism or being laughed at.  When I drop things when I'm working on my cards, you are there to pick things up for me.  Even though I tried to resist opening my heart to you in the beginning, it didn't take long for you to melt my heart!  I've always had dogs, but I wasn't sure how a dog could be content with my sedentary lifestyle. 

I can't imagine my life without you now.  I thought you might be too much work in the beginning, but now I'm glad I brought you into my home and my heart.  Some people would probably say that my feelings for you is just gratitude, but they wouldn't be right.  You will always have a big spot in my heart, and I couldn't be happier!

This is becoming a very long post, so I'll keep the deets to a minimum.  I printed my image out onto white card stock with the best print setting.  As quickly as possible, I added clear detail embossing powder to the image and heat set it.  After coloring the Love Fairy with colored pencils and blending with a blender stump dipped in Goo Gone, the whole image was cut down to size.

This is the sweetest letter yet. Isn't it amazing how comforting and what a good friend a dog can be. I so miss my ole Aussie but I still have my best friend Pearl and I don't know what I would do without her. I will come back to see your project later.
