A Birthday Dachshund

Here's this week's Seize the Birthday #13 challenge - masculine version. The card I made is basically masculine, but I made it for a great blogging buddy of mine who happens to own a handsome dachshund and if I have my dates in order, she's celebrating her birthday today! Happy Birthday Lynn!! I sent this card to you earlier this week and hopefully you've received it by now!


I've had this Dachshund stamp for years now, but I thought it would be perfect for Lynn's card. I used a piece of GinaK blue cardstock and matted with chocolate chip, adding some retired SU! ribbon and embossing with a Hero Arts chevron ef. The dsp was a gift from my friend Mary Anne, and the sentiment was done with Chocolate Chip using a SNSS sentiment! I colored "Rambo" with Copics.
Happy Birthday Lynn! I hope you enjoy your special day!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Sunday!

OMG!!!!! Well, I haven't gotten the card yet and now just can not wait get to the Post Office!!!! Talk about being in love with something!! Carol, this is the most special and precious card I've seen. SO cute and your coloring on it is perfection!!!!! Love all the blue in the background (which just happens to be my favorite color)!

Thanks also for the wonderful birthday wishes. After all the the painting we've been doing the last week, I feel close to 95 so guess I'll just have to be 96 now!

Thanks so much.....Lynn

This is so sweet Carol, I'm sure your friend loved it. You had stamped some of those images for me for to use for my owh cards. I really like how the cards looked with that sweet image.
You said in comments on my card, that you had made 12 sympathy cards...my goodness, I have made 4 so far, and I have 2 to go. Not my favorite card to make.

Super cute stamp, Carol! And that blue is just awesome... especially like the little bit of it you used to outline the dachshund. Really great card!

While it was the dog that caught my eye, your choice of the papers makes it absolutely perfect.
