My Children's Replacement and This Week's Theme Continued

I tease my children that my yorkie Gracie has taken their place.  She stays home with me and is always there when I need her.  And though she could never replace my kids, I do think she is absolutely adorable and she is going to be my theme for this week.

How could you not love that face.  Believe it or not I brushed her hair that morning.

So, this week I am going to focus on cards with dogs.  I have again been stalking Mary at Cardztv.  She found a cute little puppy with some balloons at the The Silhouette Store.  And since I've been CASEing her for the past few weeks, here is my next tribute to her version of the card:

I decided to use a Happy Birthday theme for my card.  I used a 'print and cut' puppy instead of the cut that Mary used.  Thank you Mary for all your wonderful ideas.

Do you give your kids grief for growing up?  I'm glad my children have grown up, but sometimes miss when they were cute and little.  But now I have time to make more cards and catch up on all those moments I want to scrapbook.  :-)  

This card is going to Operation Write Home where it will be sent out to our service men and women who are serving away from home.  They can use cards to stay in touch with their loved ones.  If you're interested in donating your cards, check out OWH today.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  Have a great day and be inspired.

  1. Your card is so cute and your pup is adorable!! I have to admit that I am enjoying the fact that my girls are growing up. While I miss all of the cute and sweet stages, it's nice to talk about more adult things now!
