I scheduled this to post while I was gone...hope it works!

Hello hello!  First of all, to all of my friends in the USA...

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Well, really, I wish a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, no matter where you live.  I know we all have something, if not many things, we are thankful for.  Blessings to you all!

Ok, now down to business!  It's challenge time over at Digi Doodle Shop, and this week we want to see....Animals!  As many of you know, we are running a special with Pet Pardons (details later in the post), and the lovely ladies at Digi Doodle Shop thought this would be a good time to have an animal challenge.

I used the adorable Christmas Puppy, found right here. Guess what I want for Christmas!  LOL  Nah, we don't have room for another one, more's the pity.  At least I can console myself by coloring beautiful images of them.  =D  The image was colored with Copics. Papers are by DCWV.  Ribbon, flowers (white, colored with Copics), brad and "wish" sentiment are from my stash.

Now you've seen my card, hop on over to the Digi Doodle Shop's Best challenge blog to check out the amazing creations by the rest of the team.  

Remember, you don't have to use a Digi Doodle Shop stamp, but if you do it will be entered twice.  Also, you can enter as many times as you long as it's with a new card/project each time.  Plus, all animal stamps are 25% off for the month of November!  PLUS, if you spend $7, you'll get one of these fabulous images:

and a chance to support Pet Pardons! It's a fabulous organization, so I hope you'll help support them!

Be safe, and thanks for coming by!
