Birthday Wishes

It was only 89 degrees today! 
Geena Bea got to go to agility tonight for the first time in what seems like forever.  She was one happy Schnauzer!!!  Geena was so happy to see her teacher, Miss Linda.

My card today is for my sister-in-law.  Her birthday is this week and my DH asked me to make a card for her.  I asked him what he wanted and he was a little short on words.  So I went to my room and created this:

When I was through, I brought it to him and asked what he thought.  He was thrilled.  Better than he could even imagine.  My DH loves all things DOG, and since we have Schnauzers (4), he really loved this stamp (Viva Las Vegas Stamps).  Kind of looks like our new guy, Schmitz.  DP is Basic Grey Max & Whiskers, ribbon is from May Arts, button, rhinestone & cs are from stash.  I used my new dog tag from MFT for the sentiment (which comes from Papertrey) stamped with Versafine Sepia.  I colored the image with Copics.  I also decorated the interior and added the sentiment, "Hope you have a dog-gone happy birthday", which I thought went well with the car!

I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop, and will also enter the following challenges:

Forever Friends - animal + something new (dog tag die)
Basic Grey - bright & bold
Wags & Whiskers - birthday
Hooked on Crafts - Let's Celebrate
Word Art Wednesday - things that make you smile

Thanks for stopping by and good night from Geena Bea who has hidden herself under the couch pillow so she can sleep after all her hard work at class!
