CES Challenge # 23...Cute & Cuddly

I'm still trying to play catch up on my blog this week...I've quite a few comments to publish and the plan is to have a bit of a blog hop later on this evening when hubby has gone out...I won't have to fight for the puter then lol!

I treated myself to an indoor photogpraphy studio as I'm fed up trying to take pictures of my cards out in the garden...if it's not raining, or waaay too bright, then the wind is blowing like a hoolie. I'm still experimenting with the lighting for the studio but so far I'm quite impressed with the results...its' so nice being able to take pics indoors and not worry about rushing to finish a card so that I can get a piccy taken outdoors before it gets dark!

I've made this little card for this week's CES Challenge which is Cute & Cuddly...I've used this adorable little puppy from the Digi Stamp Boutique...he is a new release for Feb and you can find the whole set here

Donna, this is gorgeous! I love the cute little pup with his heart looking too sweet to resist! The panels are gorgeous and I just love the paper! I see those hearts peeking out from behind. Good that you can take pics without fear of losing the sun light. Great photo! I need to do more of that myself.
