I am ecstatic to be able to play during the week and Wendy's challenge for Limited Supplies was perfect! Thanks Wendy!
Needed a thank you card for a client who invited me to lunch and ended up hitching a ride with me when I was in Spokane this week. When he asked if I would mind driving, I forewarned him that there was dog fur flying AND a dog in the car. He was non-plussed.
Turns out that he embraced my dog Blue with hugs and kisses and didn't give a hoot that fur was flying everywhere in our 20 minute jaunt to the restaurant and the 20 minute jaunt back!
I truly needed to make a thank you note for his buying lunch and enduring the ride!
So I kept with Wendy's themes in full, I think, and if you are wondering about the puppy on a masculine card, it's because after meeting Blue he told me that he and his wife are now ready to bring a new puppy into their lives after recovering from the loss of their last companion.
It's all good. We live, we lose, then we regain strength to do it all over again. Yes? Yes!
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
PS - Thanks jaydekay for the adorable puppy image! And I used the MOJO92 sketch!

I've got to talk DH into letting me use the veneers from a picture kit he has had for...12 years, more? This is really adorable, M, who could resist that darling puppy. And the Basic Grey is a great background for him. How nice that you got to play along today.
I wouldn't have thought twice about a puppy on a masculine card - he's not a cutesy puppy, just very endearing.

This is the most adorable, sweet thank you card! (And if you saw my DH with our doggie, you would never even think twice about putting a puppy on a manly card!)! That woodgrain background goes great with this, too! Excellent word!! (I can just see that little puppy pulling at that knot and begging to play tug-o-war with it!)
