Puppy birthday!!

Today was Malie's 2nd birthday and we went to a small party with 3 of her siblings and their owners this morning. It's so interesting seeing all their personalities and interactions, but I won't bore you with all of that. Here's a picture of the 4 of the 5 litter that were there.

from left to right: Pomai, Bella, KJ, and Malie

I made dog-friendly cupcakes again this year and they LOVED them! Also gave each a birthday card and a small altered canister/tin with treats and a smalled stuffed toy. I used the same image and sentiment on the cards, but changed up the layouts and embellies based on challenge inspirations. Here's the cards I made and the challenges I'll submit them to:
1. Crafty Angels - Circles and Squares
2. Eat, Sleep, Stamp - sketch
3. Incy Wincy Designs - punches


2. Stamp Something - 1 DP, 1 ribbon, 1 image


1. I{heart}2stamp - sketch
2. Meljen’s Designs - circles galore


1. Alphabet Challenge Blog - K for Kids
3. Mojo Monday - The Blog  - sketch
4. Order of the Opus Gluei - make something that will make someone smile: I actually got to see the owner open this card and she definitely smiled!
5. Paper Makeup Stamps  - use a critter
6. Paper Sundaes  - lots of layers

Hope you have a wonderful week!
Aloha,
