Celebrate the Card!

Who knows what today is???  Of course, it's World Card Making Day!!!
Moxie Fab World is having a lot of giveaways so you need to go check them out!  In honor of WCMD I wanted to share a few cards I made with the September Sampler Kit by Scrapbooking Supplies R Us.

I just loved working with the Dear Lizzy stamps from American Crafts included in last month's Sampler Kit. And the fabric bow was the perfect touch!

I also enjoyed making this card....I usually don't use white as my base cardstock, but I love inking the edges to make the white more visible.  The letters I used were also white and I colored them with Copics to add a little color. 

I've had a busy week....We have a Great Pyrenees Dog named Boots, she's terrific with all of our farm animals...expecially goats.  Her mate, Bandit passed away a couple of years ago and I started worrying Boots may be lonely, even though she has a herd of goats all to herself.  So we made a visit to our local animal shelter when I found this guy on Petfinder:

He is a full stock Great Pyrenees male that is approximately 6 years old.  He was picked up by animal control and is VERY underweight.  He has to be neutered before we bring him home, but we are so excited!
While we've been waiting on the neutering, he developed Kennel Cough.  So now he's being treated for that before surgery can be done.  We've decided to name him Job, like in the Bible that lost everything and then God gave him back even more.  Hopefully we can give Job his life back and then some!  We've got acres of land, a herd of goats, and Boots patiently waiting for his arrival.

We visited him today and took him a stuffed animal and brought the doggies at the shelter and Job some rawhide treats.  There are so many doggies there needing good homes.  Before you "shop" for a dog, visit Petfinder...your bestfriend might be waiting there for you!

Awww, I love it that you took the dogs some treats! Can you imagine the hopelessness they must feel? All that a dog wants is a family/person to belong to! Glad that Job has found a forever home with you & Matt! Blessed doggy indeed.

Oh my, Job is beautiful--hope he's well enough soon to join you in his new home. I love Pyrenees, such gentle giants. Love your two cards too. I agree, that fabric bow is the perfect touch.
