Welcome to DAY 2 of the 
"Dog Gone Fun" Blog Hop!  

If you've come from Kristy's blog, you're on the right doggie trail. If you've just come across my biscuits here, please go to Haidee's blog to start from the very beginning. Haidee has details on the Apple Shuffle blog candy for this hop, so don't miss out!

In keeping with Haidee's theme, "A Dog leaves paw prints on your , so rescue one today," I made this card that celebrates the joyful adoption of a precious pup:

To make this card, 
I used Cricut's "Paper Pups" cartridge, 
a snip of plaid paper stock 
trimmed with a paper punch 
and tied with a bow.  
I computer-set and printed the sentiment.

Here is the inside sentiment, also computer-set and printed:

(sorry for the lousy photo!)
If you missed this Hop yesterday, I hope you'll scroll down to see the layout I created to celebrate the Muttrimony of my Bichon pups, Sadie and Morgan. The layout is new (=procrastinated!), but the wedding was in 2007 -- four years ago! That's 28 dog years!!

Oh, I love your card. It brought tears to my eyes. The photos of the pups are just precious. I will have to show them to my sister, who has two Bichons, Lucy and Cody who is a rescue, due to the economy) He ws with a rescue group at Petsmart two years ago. My brother- in- law and neice had gone there to buy Lucy's food. They left with Cody, his papers, and vet records since birth. He had been well cared for by a previous owner. But due to a death in that family, loss of a job, moving to another state, and the economy, the lady gave Cody to a rescue to find him a hime. he is a lucky dog. He went from one good home to another. My parents had a Bishon that was aalso a rescue. His name was Cotton We saw him in a pet store many years ago. They were going to have him put down, because they said due to company policy, he could not be sold because he was not perfect, only one testicle. We negociated with them that we would buy a bag of dog food for $350.00 and take him with it. That was half the cost of the dog. We didn"t care about the testicle because he would be nutered anyway. We took him home and to the vet the next day. He had both testicles. One had just not dropped yet. Can you believe it. Cotton was one of the prettiest Bichons I've ever seen and such a sweet quiet, well mannered little by. he lived 14 years and gave my parents so much joy!

I have three little dogs and one is a rescue. You may see them on my blog. Thanks for a fun blog hop!

Back for day two--just a few of us. Nice to hop host with you. Today's card is so sweet. I sometimes use the comp and printer with my cards too. The Cmas card is really cute too. I might have to use that idea!
