Birthday Doggy


A friend & neighbor of mine is celebrating her birthday today, and this is the card I gave her. She has the cutest little dachshund that they take on daily walks, and on the way home, they all stop by for a little front porch sitting and gabbing. I'm missing those times already now that it's getting dark much earlier.
Anyway, I found this adorable free pre-colored digi at BlackberyJelly and knew immediately what I'd be using it for. The dsp is recycled from an old project I tore apart because I wanted to re-use the paper. I added a punched flower with a brad, some matching ribbon and a sentiment, and this card was done! I just love the expression on the doggy's face and how he's holding that tiny present :)

Happy Birthday Debbie, I hope you're having a wonderful day!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Oh my gosh, that is just adorable. My next door neighbor has two dachshunds. They're so sweet.

I know what you mean about the shorter days. Hubby and I walk in the park every afternoon and instead of leaving the park about 8:30, it is now about 6:30 when we start our walk back to the car. I dread when we can't go.

Isn't he cute with that little expression on his face. I'm sure Debbie loved getting this card. Love the brown and blue together. It is sad that are days are getting so short already. Enjoy your long weekend.
