This weeks challenge #303 at Paper Pretties is PAPER PIERCING  I had to read it twice to make sure I did not read piecing vs. piercing.. LOL... that "R" makes a difference..so remember it's holes in the paper. I did holes around the square, and a little decorative in the opposite corners although the lollipop flower covers some of the piercing. The brown triangle piece has piercing on it also as does the flower and yellow piece although it's hard to see. OH well. I used the image Message Puppy  I tell you this little dog looks like our Ginger who we lost in October 2013 from old age. I really had mixed feeling making this card. So much of me loved it but also I cried thinking of her. I cry daily as I think of her and have other photos around the house and at work. I miss her so much. We had her for 15 yrs. She is a Lakeland terrier. Looked a lot like this precious dog. I loved the papers I used as I felt it was feminine enough but also masculine enough to give to either.
