Just to see if I still knew how to stamp and color, I conjoured this up for Jen's Sketch For You To Try (www.iheart2stamp.com). I could not resist this cute little $2 clear set from Inkadinkado. It reminds me of the chihuahua (pronounced chi-who-ah-who-ah if you know me) from the old Taco Bell commercials! You can't see it real good in this picture, but it says "Muchas Gracias" on the brown strip and the brown circle and strip are pierced along the edges. I had to turn the sketch horizontally to give my cacti a little breathing room which allowed me to use the muy fabuloso ball fringe I've had for a while now. Sorry, I couldn't resist it for this "theme"!!

How cute... and the spirit of Les Nessman lives on. Great colours on a fun card.

Too cute! In my small town we have a newspaper that is ALWAYS filled with mistakes - anyway, this week there was an ad for chiwawas for sale. I thought of this when I saw your pronunciation - I remember the WKRP episode and like you, my husband still says it that way!! Thanks for sharing - and allowing me to share my story!
