Andy Warhol's Dog

Hi everyone!  Hope your weekend is going well.  Mine has been fun.  My oldest daughter and her husband  came to town yesterday, and my younger daughter and her husband came over to visit while they were here.  It was nice having the whole family together for a day.

Today will be spent in the kitchen getting my weekly meal preparation done and then we are taking Riley out to the woods for some fun.  Not much crafting time weekend, but it is worth it!

I did need a birthday card for a friend and her birthday is coming up on me fast so it needed to be a quick card! She is a real dog lover, and when I saw the grinning dogs that were released at Squigglefly yesterday I knew just what I wanted to do!

I printed the Grinning Retreiver  in different colors aka Andy Warhol style and layered a piece of vellum on top and then stamped the word "smile" ( a Stampin' Up! stamp) on top.  Inside it says "Yeah, you may be older but grin and bear it!  Happy Birthday!"   I love the grinning dogs!  There are a pug and a pomeranian to go along with this retreiver.

If you don't know  how to change a digital image from black to another color, you can see how easy it is by watching THIS VIDEO.

Thanks for stopping by ya'll, and have a great Sunday!
