Paper hearts challenge and one spoiled yellow dog




The heart challenge for the week at http://prettypaperhearts.blogspot.com/ was to use multiple hearts...I put three in the one....I used inks and paint and a new tree stamp that a friend sent me and just layered it up. I also used beeswax again, but only on certain parts to take a way some shine...It is made of a sheet of watercolor paper. Every night when I come in the bedroom the dog follows me and makes himself at home in the bed...He is so big that as you can see, he now takes up the whole double bed....As soon as I am done he waddles in and gets in bed with the two kids, the cat and myself. Surprisingly I have gotten used to hanging on the side of the bed to sleep. It is amazing what becomes normal....He has reached 132 pounds now. When I am still awake he starts out in a tight ball...As soon as my breathing changes..(this is how I imagine it anyway) he stretches out and makes himself comfortable just like in the photo, He is so big, that now, I cant budge him, the poop and he knows it. The response to the giveaway has been so much fun and I just love reading about peoples pets! One blogger asked me if I could do a goldfish...bring it on....

Hi Melinda, thank you for visiting my blog. I can't believe it, you have a Cooper :) I do too, only he is a puppy, only 5 months old. We also had our dear Andy for 11 years before Cooper, and he was a Golden retriever but a blonde just like your dog.
I love your heart challenge, you did a great job, I have to go see what the challenge is for this week. Have fun with it!

Love your picture of Cooper!!! Trevor is only allowed on the bed on VERY special occasions - usually when fireworks are expected at night and DH is at work. They sure know how to stretch out and make themselves comfortable :)

That is one cozy pooch in your pretty and colorful bedroom=too funny!

Love reading how you put your heart together. Using beeswax in a small portion is a great idea, whenever I got the beeswax out I seemed to slather it everywhere LOL!

Warm wishes from snowy Virginia (our first of the season)
