A Quirky Squares Theme Thingy

Hi peoples! Hope you're all well and have so far had a fabulous weekend. It's been raining here in Britain, but then we do need it! Luckily it's held off a bit for today. Meanwhile, it's time for another Quirky Challenge! This time it's my turn to set the theme. So I thought I'd do something other than a sketch as I always do a sketch. Instead I've chosen a bit of a Quirky...
Recipe Theme Box!

Very easy challenge. All you have to do is choose any three or more of the squares (or even all of them if you're feeling very clever!) and make something crafty, ie... you might like to choose to use four brads and three backing papers, with a digi...or, five flowers, Coffee and cream with embossing. embossed acetate card with a digi and some ribbon. The idea is to use no less than three of the boxes.
This challenge is kindly being sponsored by Craft Ribbons! And Robyn's Fetish.
Here's my card. I've used a Robin Fetish Digi Puppy Paws. As soon as I saw him I knew I just had to make a card using him...the other members of the team have used a lovely dragonfly and Teacups... (short purse to think) Nah, Puppy wins by a mile!! I've made his eyes a little darker though.
I've used PinkPetticoat backing papers matted over some nice shimmery plain brown papers and some freebie 'paws papers' by Pixie . The link has been on my side bar for ages, or go here to download them. Don't forget to leave some love.
I printed the puppy out twice. Then coloured them with ProMarkers, cut out the best one and after curving him to make him pop out, I fixed him over the top of the first puppy using silicone glue. (after I'd die cut and embossed him with my deckled edged Nesties)
So, what have I used? I've used a digi, three backing papers in Coffee and cream, and brown, five flowers (the bottom flower is a double) and added four card candi's, four brads and some embossing.
For my ribbon or lace I've used brown raffia instead.
As you can see, or you might not have noticed, I couldn't decide on the sentiment....
The fonts I've used are all freebies. 'Sorry You're Paw-ly' is called Hornswoggled... I love that name! Hornswoggle!! It's my new swear word! And you can download it HERE
The sentiment 'Hello!!' is called Appleboy BTN and you can download that HERE (You'll also find Appleboy Outline Here)
That's about it. Pop over to Quirky Craft's to see the rest of the DT and GDT's fabulous makes and to check out my bad spelling! I'm off out for the rest of the afternoon so this is on timer.
**Update...Remember that Father's Day card I couldn't find... yes it was this one, sitting behind me all the time!!! This is how it ended up. Font used this time, front and inside, is called Candy Buzz BTN and you can download it for free HERE! (Some sites do charge) I've added paw prints and a smaller 'flipped' puppy to the inside along with two ladybugs from Penny Black Stickeroos. (plus the 'chewed' corner!) The insert sentiment and puppy dog was done in Word.
I like this card sooo much better, than the painting bear for the post below. Me-thinks my dad might be getting two cards this Father's day!! Thanks for stopping by!!
