A personal note & a card, too...

I don't like to do this normally, but I have two things to post along with today's card.

First...I have a ton of sets on eBay that I am selling -- and more being put on every day. You can find them HERE. Please take a look if you feel like shopping! I need to make some room : )

Second, some of you may remember that I had to put my dear dog down at the end of the year. I have been very lonely, and just this week we decided to adopt a dog from our local Humane Society. Well, we hit the jackpot! Ajax is a 2 year old American White Shepherd and he is a mush -- loving, sweet, spunky -- and to top it all off, SOMEONE trained this dog very well. I am in love already! Here he is in all his glory:

Okay, now for today's card:

This card uses the Duotone Resist Technique from the February 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter as a background. The stamps are from Innovative Stamp Creations. Enjoy!

What a beautiful dog! Sounds like you've hit the jackpot! Isn't amazing how we can get so attached to our pups? When they are gone, there is a HUGE whole in our lives!! (I lasted 2.5 weeks after I put my last dog down! Now I have 2!!)
Great card! Simple, but stunning.

He looks wonderful--kudos to you for supporting your local animal shelter! I am so sure he is grateful for such a loving home.

Congratulations on your new addition to your family!

We had a wonderful German Shephard named 'Becky' who was with us for 16.5 years before she passed away. There is never a day we don't remember her with love... she was special!

Enjoy getting to know each other.

Love the beautiful card and the layout...thank you,
