Dachshund Fun

Today I have a card made just for fun. I recently got this adorable dachshund die by MB and couldn't wait to use it. The image was stamped at a friend's house and it seemed like a perfect match for this trio of doxies. Sorry, I didn't write the name of the mfr. on the back, so I don't know who made it. I colored it with Copics, added stickles to the snow, and used a MS fence border punch. The doxies were cut with kraft, and then I colored them with Copics to make them closer to the "red" doxie color. The green was a scrap, and the ribbon came from my LSS. We had a dachshund for years, and we miss that devoted little companion who brought us so much joy! We named her "Bitzi" because of her tiny little legs :)

Wishing you a great Friday, and lots of smiles!

ETA: Thanks to Mary Anne and Kathy for letting me know this is an EatCakeGraphics image!

Hey there! Stay warm this weekend! I'll do my best to keep your lights on. {smile}

I've seen this image as a quilt pattern at eatcakegraphics.com - don't know if they also made it into a stamp (they have some interesting / funny ones).

Love the cards this week (ok - always)... keep up the great work!

HEE HEE How cute is your card! I love it. I have to send this to my neighbor. She has dachshunds and I think she will love this. She may want to get that die and stamp.

I agree with Lynn, image (and sentiment) is a must have. The doxies are so darn cute. I'm sure Bitzi would have approved. Stay safe during the storm. We are suppose to get 24-32 inches now. Jack is off working the storm so it's me and the babies, but we'll be fine. Hugs,

How's your weather? We had rain most of the day and maybe a dusting of snow tonight. I think we dodged a bullet on this one! Have a great weekend! :)
