Here is my card with this set.  I did not color my boxer  because it reminded me of my sweet buddy Bandit, my white boxer,  that went to Rainbow Bridge a few months ago.  Oh, how I miss that boy.

Here's the Design Team:

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.


  1. Ahhh., I am so sorry about your beloved Bandit. Your card is beautiful and elegant and a lovely tribute! TFS!

  2. A big whole in your heart! Your card is lovely

  3. Such a beautiful card Shirley and such a lovely tribute to your sweet dog... Love the paw prints and the ribbon too ! Hugs, blessings and love from Catherine

  4. Like the color combo of your pet card. Especially like how the ribbon complements the dog theme. Like the scenes you've created for your pet cards. Especially like the way you created the clouds & added the sentiment on the cloud. Have a dog as a pet now. 1st dog, mix breed German Shepherd, was like my 1st child and ever so friendly & loving. RIP Sasha. 2nd dog that I have now is a mixed breed Hound that thinks he is part Cougar. He likes me to take him for walks.
