Hot Diggity Dog Birthday

Wow…what a day it’s been here today…3″ of snow when only rain was predicted.  We had mulch delivered yesterday and now it looks like one of those huge mountains of parking lot snow in our driveway.  It was still a good day, as I helped a friend make announcements for her daughter’s college graduation.  They really turned out great and we were both very pleased with them.

Today I am playing along with The Challenge #67 sketch challenge.  This was a fun sketch to work with too.

New Banner-012

Here is my interpretation of the sketch

I recently saw this adorable set from Newton’s Nook on another stampers blog and absolutely had to have it.  I am one of those crazy dachshund lovers….there I said it!  I have had one of these spunky little dogs for the past 17 years…the SAME dog. Tess is 17 and still going…sometimes going strong, sometimes not so strong, but still loving life!  I will share some pictures at the end of this post.

This set is called Delightful Doxies and it is a lot of fun.  I was so excited to use it on this card.

The sentiment on the front of the card is from SU’s Remembering Your Birthday stamp set and the inside sentiment is from SU’s Hot Diggity Dog stamp set.  The embossing folder is Decorative Dots and the DSP is from my random stash.

Here is my darling little old lady….
