Happy Dog, Happy Life

Coffee of the Day - Eggnog

I took a little break from making Christmas gifts to create this card to send to our son, Mick. his dog, Brutus, was super sick last week. thankfully Brutus is doing better now, but did require 2 emergency trips to the vet. :(  in the mean time, poor Mick was beside himself and we had many texts into the wee hours of the night....

I thought the sentiment seemed perfect, as is too often the case with pets and babies - if they aren't happy, ain't no body in the house happy! ;)

the cute puppy image is from Sandra Caldwell's Etsy shop, paper is a scrap I had left over from a project using Simple Stories Snow Fun collection, flower is by Petaloo, ribbon scrap is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and buttons are all from my vintage stash. lots of re-purposed items on here, too - belt loop from a pair of jeans, Starbucks coffee cozy that was inked, and a piece of twine from a tag.

now I'm off to spend the day crafting. hope you have a good one! :)

So glad to hear Brutus is doing better. It is always so scary to have to take a loved pet to the emergency room! Love all of the repurposed bits on this card! Now I know what to do with those sleeves from Starbucks!!
