A Dog Wags It's Tail

Hello blog world!  Happy New Year! I have been MIA with the flu, even though I got the employer-mandated flu shot.  Guess the experts didn't come up with the best vaccine this year.  I know several others that have had flu shots AND the flu this year, as well, so I have not been alone.  Keep washing those hands and stay away from those with symptoms (if you can - avoid people who show up to work sick - they are your worst enemy!!!).

Tonight I have a card to share that I made for the animal rescue I have talked about before.  We had someone donate a considerable sum after a lottery win and they wish to remain anonymous.  So, the person who facilitated the donation will receive the card and give it to the donor.  I have been the donor coordinator for this group since it's inception about 7 years ago, so once I got into this cardmaking hobby, it seemed only proper that I make special cards for donors that do something special for us, whether it be in dollars, or having birthday gifts given for the animals, or other such things.  So here is the card that is going to this male benefactor:

I used a Lost Coast Designs image and isn't he just fun?!!!  Reminds me of Mardi Gras!!!  Dp is from Bo Bunny.  The SU! sentiment is cut out with an MFT fishtail die.  The sketch is from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

I am also entering this in the following challenges:

The Crafter's Cafe - anything goes (I missed last week's "animals")
Crafty Sentiments - New (donation, stamp)
The Pink Elephant - Thank you

Please think positive thoughts for my sweet Sadie who turned 16 last month.  I discovered a new lump tonight and need to get the vet to check it out.  Doesn't feel like the usual lipoma so I am a bit worried.

Thanks for stopping by.
