Polly is our hostess for this week's MMTPT546 You Must Be Joking Teapot Tuesday challenge - and we are sending our cards to sweet Anne who loves red. So I went for the bonus cookies with a red base and the punchline - which you'll have to check out in the challenge post linked above.
I don't know why I had this dog in my scraps pile, I must have done something wrong when I was making my BIL's birthday card last year - but by cutting a black frame to put inside the square aperture I was able to mask off the torn edges and frame him. Added a sentiment created on my label printer rather than stress over hand-writing neatly, and added to a red embossed base.
For the inside I used a stamp from Unity and a die from Marianne dies, Eline's Collectibles toucan.

Oh, Sabrina, this card is hilarious! I first saw the dog image on a card by grannytranny and had to go right out and track it down : ). I love your vibrant coloring of the toucan - now to go look at the book that inspired this
P.S. Anne is going to love this!

Oh Sabrina, I laughed out loud when I saw this wonderful dog taking time out from reading his newspaper no less to ask a joke. I love it and Ann will too! I am very impressed with the way you went about salvaging this dog image and framing it so nicely here. The red-embossed bg will make Anne's heart go pitter patter (like it did mine!). How fun! ~Karen.
