My nephew has been wanting us to get a second dog. I am always all for more dogs in my life, but it still needs to be something that is talked about a bit more. One of the pups that he has been liking are pugs and that is why this image caught my eye I think.
This book is one I haven’t actually read. I do however have it on my to check out list right now since it also works for the reading challenge that I am working on right now. I tried to focus on the cover for the inspiration for this card. I actually made the card twice since I didn’t like how the white turned out on the first card and had to go buy a new white stamp pad.
When our pup turned one we had a birthday party for him. Honestly, it was more for the kids than anything else. I do try and spoil him a bit on his ‘special day’. Our first pup was a rescue dog and we had no idea when his birthday was, so we celebrated the day he joined our family as “Calvin Dog Day” He had a weakness for strawberry ice cream so he always got some on that day. (There was a year he was the only one to get any of the strawberries my grandfather grew in his garden)
Sometimes it feels weird to make cards that I don’t really want to give to anyone but I still think are really beautiful. This is one of those cards. If I am giving it to someone it means they lost there fur baby and that is simply awful, so I don’t really want to ever give these cards. The thing is sometimes the cards are needed and I think that is why I try and make them as pretty as I can.
This is a birthday card for one of my favorite wee gamers. I tried really hard to make the screen look like it had Super Mario on it.
