Thankful for my dogs! :)

Coffee of the Day - German Chocolate Cake

I know it sounds weird, but I really do tell God thank you for my wonderful dogs! they rank right up there with my family, Dave's job, and our house. Are any of you pet owners who really think of them more as family members? if so, then you will appreciate my post today. :)

Jellypark Friends has a challenge going on right now to create papercraft projects that reflect something you are thankful for, say thank you, for give thanks i.e. Thanksgiving. I obviously chose to portray my gratitude for my wonderful labradors, Mocha & Latte. and yes, I named them, much to the dismay of the men in my family. ;) We can't sleep at night without these 2 cuties curling up in bed with us. there's not much better than having a big pup snuggle right up next to ya! who woulda ever thought I would turn out to be a dog lover? not me, that is for sure! but I can't imagine life without my pups!

my card uses the precious 'Girl and Dog' image from Jellypark and papers from My Mind's Eye Happy Go Lucky. senti is from Create with TLC. I added little snow dots with stickles. Pom poms on the hat and shoes were painted with shimmerz. I really love the colors of these fun papers! I know my card is pretty simple for me, but felt that the designs of the paper were busy enough to carry everything. I did finish off the card with a bit of faux stitching.

I absolutely adore my pets and have been sick because I had to put Patches down last week. She was my cuddlier and I miss her terribly. I am thankful I still have Bonnie.

Just gotta love our pets! Wonderful colouring on your image, and I love the colours you chose in your papers.

Jennifer, I sure do hear you about being thankful for your pets. We have one dog, two cats, two birds and two rabbits.

Some people like to travel or have fancy things. This gives them joy and that is good. Our pets bring us more joy than any vacations or expensive things ever could. IMHO, pets are necessary to life.

Your card is darling and so pretty. Of course, I love its message.

Thank you for playing at Ellephantastic this month.
