Yappy Birthday...

Hello, hello!

So my sister Tracy fosters rescue dogs and yesterday she had to take one of the dogs to meet his new potential owner in North Bend. That is about a three hour drive west from us and since I had the day off I offered to drive her and her pups there. The meet went well and it looks like the dog may finally have his forever home. Once that was done we turned right around and came back home but I got to stop in Wenatchee and do a bit of crafty shopping at Craft Warehouse before making the final leg of our trip. I found a bunch of great new dies and stamps that were on my wish list and some were even on sale... score! But boy, was I tired once I got home, in the last three days I have nearly driven the entire length of Washington state!

Luckily I had some new inspiration waiting for me at home with this stamp set from a new to me stamp company called Sugar Pea Designs. It is called Hot Diggity Dog and I love this funny little guy with his tail a waggin'! I thought he looked like a Wiener Dog so I gave him a cool black and tan colored coat. Then I just completed the scene with some clouds and a ball stamp from another set. Out of curiosity I looked to see if Sugar Pea runs a challenge and sure enough there is a sketch to play along with this week. So I'm entering my card into the SPDSS25 Sugar Sketch. It was just what I needed to pull this all together quickly but with style.  ;)

Now I'm off to get ready for a long day of work.
