Kelly Made It with Love For Rocket

Happy Valentine’s!

This year, I’m expanding my love connections to include new darling friends!

Rocket and his mom Marcia are fabulous friends from Oregon via Instagram.  Sweet Corgi Rocket, was a very special Valentine eight years ago. They live on the gorgeous west coast of America and have the most fantastic days filled with ocean views, sandy beaches, walks through giant forests and lot’s of snoodle kisses.


It’s a fun challenge they do too! Rocket hides, almost out of sight, and Marcia takes a photo. Friends visit on Instagram to see if we can find him 😀 Naturally, I’ve fallen madly in love with them both and so when I found out Rocket’s Barkday is February 14th, I wanted to send something special.

This paper Valentine transpired…….

Not your typical red, but green, like the forests Rocket loves to walk through.  Look!  There’s Rocket now!

Walking along the beach as ocean waves come and go. The giant forest tree’s bring dabbled shade as the sun shines through the fluffy clouds. Maybe he’ll cut through that flower filled meadow on his way home, just over those hills.

The heart-shaped shadow box is actually a candy box cut-file from Silhouette Studio.

Candy Box copyI had lot’s of fun thinking about all the walks Rocket and Marcia share on Instagram and recreating my imaginary scenery. Once placed inside, the top of Rocket’s Barkday Box was decorated with simple flowers, sequins and a banner, all cut on the Silhouette.

The scenery is bit’s of patterned paper pieced together to tell this little story. Since no birthday party is complete without hats, I also used my Cameo to send one along! Naturally, Rocket is riding a rocket to his next adventure!

I hope you’re 8th Barkday

is every bit as special as you, Rocket!


Thank’s so much for sharing your sweet Rocket Marcia, you add so much love to my day!

Happy Barkday Rocket!

    1. Hi Lisa! Thanks honey! Isn’t Rocket just the cutest doggie ever? You MUST get onto Instagram so you can meet up with Marcia and Rocket. Marcia’s a fabulous photographer and takes loads of pics on the west coast with Rocket 😀 Hey!? you’re the baker, do you have a recipe for doggie cookies? I think you could really make nice gifties if you did 😀 xo K

          1. Dang, condo people are missing out. I suppose it makes some sense. Someone’s doggie might not be well with being left alone and barkity-bark-bark. It’s tricky when the neighbours are very close. ❤
