  3. i adore this card but have to tell you, for me, the instructions were confusing ( I had a hard time with the eyes) and images were too small to really be able to see well. In the future please make them bigger for us older fans. Thank you Jennifer!

    1. Hi Pat:)
      Sorry the tutorial was confusing for you. I always want to make my designs as easy as possible to create. Tutorials, I will admit, are not my strength. I am definitely a visual person and communicating instructions is something that I continue to work on. Do you have a specific question on the construction? Or is there wording that I could change in the tutorial that would be easier to follow so that I can change it for others? Images are bound to a specific size in my blog. I would be happy to send you the picture file through email if that would be helpful. Thank you for your feedback.

  4. Jennifer, it has been a very long time since I have enjoyed making these little dog gift cards. Please Jennifer, when you are sitting around, and that brain of yours is just whirling away.... would you please try to make a bulldog? Thank you in advance for even giving it some thought. Please continue on in this line, and THANK YOU for ALL of them so far!

  7. I LOVE your designs, and have many! I am purchasing this Boston Terrier, and turning it into a French Bulldog for my nephew-in-law (he and my niece just bought one, and he is besotted). Could you please add a Basset Hound for ME?
