It's Thursday and there's frost in the grass outside where I live. The cool air is quite refreshing actually. Our two dogs, Samurai and Abbey, are really enjoying the outdoor weather. They've been spending a great deal of time chasing each other in the backyard. Here are pictures of both of them in case you're an animal lover.

This is Samurai, a five year old golden retriever. We adopted him last February. He's a real sweetie, has the run of the house and sleeps on our bed. He's a real cuddle-bum. He's a lot bigger than this photo portrays him. He's waiting for a cookie.

Here's Abbey. Sort of named after Abbey Road I think. Anywho, she's a german shepherd cross and is about 16 weeks old now. We adopted her in September. She's very sweet as well and really looks up to her dog brother Sam. She's really good at night in regards to potty training and also sleeps in our room. It's a good thing we have a big bed!

We're waiting for her to grow into her huge satellite ears. Sometimes we just call her "Ears".

For this week's challenge on The Greeting Farm's blog: , we're to make a card with certain images, images of wild animals. I love it! This is what I came up with. I'm sure I'll make more.

I used Cosmo Cricket paper, SU Cardstock (Not Quite Navy & Ruby Red), and added some embellishments with a Sizzix die cut. I love the bright colours on this card. I'm not usually a bright-coloured-card kinda girl. I mostly just stick with earthy colours. Brown and red are used a lot in my craft room. What about you? Do you have favourite colours?

Hope you have a great day!

  1. Your dogs are beautiful! A few of our cats had to grow into their ears too. ;-) I once received a gift certificate for a photo mug, and was able to order a mug with RaeAnn as a kitten, and RaeAnn as an adult cat in the exact same place/pose. Her ears were the only thing that didn't change size!
