10 Days? Oh, Happy Day!!

 Vacation and this sweet face are the reasons I have been absent for 10 days!! Our puppy has been with us about 8 weeks and in that time we've taken three trips. So, when we got back from the last trip, I really had to slow down and take some quality time (ALL the time!) to be with her, train her and make her part of our daily life. Her name is Winnie and she is a Sheltie. This is the photo that captured our hearts! She is much bigger now and a very mellow puppy, but she still needs constant watching in the house. I'm having a time of training her!

Consequently, I don't spend a lot of time in my carpeted craft room. She does have her own bed in there, but I can only guess when she is worn out enough for me to have a few moments in there while she sleeps.

I CASEd this card and I'm so sorry that I don't know whose original card I was inspired by. I mostly changed the color scheme and the "celebrate" element. It did take quite a few tries to put it together, but it isn't hard at all. I LOVE these colors!!

I'd love to know what you think! Please leave a comment below. 

There are many things going on in the Stampin' Up! world, like a Big Shot and Bundles Special (get a free set of Framelits when you purchase a Big Shot thru August 31st)... 

...and all of the Blendabilities color sets are available for purchase!  Also, Demonstrators are able to pre-order from the soon-to-be released Holiday Catalog! There are so many great things in the catalog that I'm overwhelmed. I'm still trying to choose what I want to preview. Stay tuned! I hope to bring you an assortment of cards that other people have sent me, plus there will be a new Pals Paper Arts Challenge this week, too! Lots for you to come back for! Thanks for your patience!!

Your card is fabulous! Love the color combo and all the little banners. So cute!
Speaking of cute, Winnie is beautiful and what an adorable face.
I lost my cat the Friday before Convention. I was so puffy eyed and in all the pic's, you can really tell. I adopted two little 3 mo old kittens and goodness are they keeping me busy.
Congrats on your new fur baby!
Thanks for sharing!
