Sept. 16th & 17th

Welcome to Day 2 of the “DOG gone FUN” BLOG HOP hosted by Haidee.  The theme of the hop is “DOG gone FUN” and 18 crafty ladies have come together to create projects based on this theme to remind you to rescue a dog! If you came here from Deb then you are in the right place. But if you didn't that's okay, go back to the beginning at Haidee  and hop along through with us. You don't want to miss any of these dog gone fun projects. Haidee is offering some awesome blog candy, an APPLE SHUFFLE and some other crafty items, so you definitely don’t want to miss out on the chance to grab some blog candy.

I have 2 little projects today.  The first a notepad for my work friend who just got a new little poodle puppy.   I used a Imaginesce Stamp and Imaginesce Poodle Paper.  Inside I used the Create A Critter Cartridge to make the Poodle.   The second project is a cute card to go with the note pad.  I used the Imaginesce Poodle Paper and again cut the Poodle from Create  A Critter.   I made the notepad paper myself simply by cutting it with my paper cutter then switching to the ticket blade to perforate the upper top of the paper to allow her to tear it off.  

For this last day I would like to share pictures of two of the dogs who have been in my life.  The first and most recent is our Black Lab Brady.  Brady is the kindest, gentlest dog.  My husband got him as a puppy before we met from the vet.  He is just so lovable.  He loves to sit on my feet and warm them for me.   But most of all, he loves his little furkitty sister, Cuddles, as seen in the picture.

Next, our pictures of my beloved Frosty.  Frosty was a cockapoo.   We got her when she was 1 1/2 years old from my Uncle.  My Uncle got her from her first owners who use to kick her.   She was just the cutest little furball.  At first she didn't get along with furkitty sister Fluff, but eventually they became great friends and would cuddle up on my bed.  Frosty loved the snow too.  

Thank for letting me share my projects and furbabies with you.  In addition to the fabulous blog hop candy offered by Haidee,  I am offering blog candy, which is a little goodie bag with some Doggie Paper, Doggie stickers, a bottle of stickles, ink, small stamp and some miscellanous.
