Pawsing... to say hi

School starts again today. I enjoy school but I will definitely miss my wonderful break! It was quite cold out during my vacation, so Robin and I spent many days inside making cards for Operation Write Home. It was incredibly relaxing and enjoyable. We also had a chance to bake! Anyway, I thought I would post a card before my first class this morning. Although this card is very simple, I have always loved it. 

Unfortunately, I am not sure who makes the dog stamp that was used on the card. I do remember that we purchased the it from Michael's Craft Store. I colored the dog using colored pencils. It was stamped on white cardstock and then mounted on a light brown and dark brown piece of paper. Finally, the image was then placed on a yellow check strip of paper from Mat Stacks. The sentiment was printed from the computer and then mounted on the same dark brown paper. As I said above, this is a really simple card. Yet, I think it is the perfect variation on the classic 'thinking of you' or 'Hi' note. Robin and I sent many cards like this to Operation Write Home. I hope some little kid will enjoy getting this card from a parent or family member overseas. 


  1. I am a dog lover and think your card is great! I have been looking for dog cards of this quality for years and years. Congratulations on making my canine heart skip a beat!

  2. That's a sweet little card that makes you go 'awwww'!
