Fast and Furry to the Teaparty

Hi everyone. Before I get to my card today, I'd like to tell you that there has been a change in the Squigglefly design team. Angie Cortes has had to step down and we were lucky enough to have Kari Ronnabakk step in to take her place! I'd really love it if you all took a little bit of time to stop by her blog to welcome her and take a look at her fabulous art work! I can't wait to see what she does with the Squigglefly digis!

Okay, now for today's card. You all know that I was very late to last week's teaparty that Mothermark hosts on Splitcoast Stampers. Well, this week I was there on time! You can read the story of this week's teaparty here, but in short we were supposed to bring dogs - all kinds of dogs, lots of dogs! And dog things - like bones, fire hydrants, and trees!

I brought a dog with a super sniffer. This is Betty Bloodhound from Squigglefly. I love her sad face!

When I was looking through my papers I found this paper that had the word "happy" written all over it and I thought it would be funny to pair the "happy" paper with such a sad faced dog. The inside says

"Think you're old? In dog years you'd be dead!"

I'm keeping this short today so you'll have time to go visit Kari! Talk to you tomorrow, and thanks for looking!

Hi Holly -

What a sweet face. And what a wonderful job you've done of bringing it to life! Love the paper you chose (too funny) and I agree with Bumblebee, how do you come up with those great sentiments? Great job!
