A Cutie CAS Birthday Card and Meet Our Pups

Hope you're all having a wonderful week.  

Does this image look familiar?  I used it for a few of my Christmas cards but altered the wagon portion by using an image with gifts in place of the flowers and kitty.   Here's the original image by Whipper Snapper Design which I got at Cute Stuff in Honolulu.

I also used Copics, Spellbinder dies, distress ink, sentiment by Dandelion Designs, "Simple Banner" die by Memory Box, twine, and rhinestones by Elements.

About a month ago, our son decided he wanted "a" (I repeat "a") puppy so he checked the website for the Humane Society and found a cutie which was at the Kona location (100 miles from home).   Not wanting to make that long drive, we took a chance and decided to adopt her.  So hubby went to the Keaau location to pay for her and the fee to have her transported to the Keaau location.  At that time he was informed it's BUY 1 GET 1 FREE.   OMG, then one became TWO puppies.  Our "bonus" pup is from the same litter.  They were 12 weeks old when we adopted them.   We're so glad they instantly got along very well with Buddy, our 3 year old dog.  Brees (pronounced Breeze) is a slipper snatcher and "Ratty" is very affectionate but can be a little trouble maker in a cute way.  OMG, do I dare tell you what Ratty's real name is?   OK, OK, I'll tell ya.  Our son said she looks like a rat and a kangaroo so he named her Rataroo.  I thought he was joking but he stuck to that name.  Poor baby.  Hee-hee.
Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Aloha Friday and hope you have a fun and very crafty weekend.

Your card is very cute and your pups are adorable too! So glad you adopted them from a shelter. We did that too and our poodle has brought so much joy into our lives. He makes me smile or laugh every day.

Happy Friday evening Karen! The b-day card you made is so cute. I love Whipper Snapper stamps. I don't think I have this one though. I never thought that the little girl's wagon could be so versatile. :)

The two additions to your family are very cute too. I am glad that they get along with your other dog. Love the names that they have.

Have a great weekend!
