Who Let the Dogs Out!

Bone Sweet Bone! Images © 1990-2007 Stampin' Up!

It's my dog's birthday this week! We don't know exactly when she was born aside from the month of December... so we just pick a week and celebrate. Kita has been such an amazing pet.. I could not imagine life without her. She is a black lab and greyhound mix... we adopted her from our local pet shelter about 6.5 years ago. She is such a mild mannered and well behaved dog... a little crazy at times but its to be expected . She loves "babies" like most little girls, she totes them all over the house... and sleeps with them too. In honor of her birthday, I will be posting doggie themed cards with my new stamp set... Yappy Day!



Today's cards were inspired by a newsletter I received in my email last night... from Queen Kat Designs. I have no idea how I got on the mailing list but I was tickled to see the sketches so I decided to give them a try. I have tried to find a link to the sketches online and have not been successful... I need to contact the writer and see if I can get some better links and information on how to find more of her fun sketches. There were 3 sketches featured in her December Newsletter.... to visit her blog, click here.
