Furry Friends for Merry Monday

It's Merry Monday time.


This week Sue is the hostess and she chose



I know we're going to see some fabulous cards this week.

I have 2 stamps with dogs and/or cats and I'd used the other one a few weeks ago.
I had this all laid out and saw that my good buddy Karren 
had used the same stamp and die.
Great minds think alike!
So I worked up a different layout.
(Glad I hadn't used adhesive before I saw that.)

The rest of the design team cards are fabulous too.
I hope you'll go take a look.
Then make a Christmas card with a cat or dog on it,
and share it with us at Merry Monday.

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

I have these critters, too, Bonnie, and just adore your layout! Who could resist these guys? The e/f and the fantastic sediment through the "knot" in the tree ~ perfect!! Hugs, Darnell

What a fun card!

Susan said...

That is such a cute image, Bonnie! And I love the way you did the background with the sentiment cut out before you did the embossing, and then popped back in place - great idea!

Loved your photos of the Indigo Bunting - what a gorgeous bird! We don't get him up here in Vancouver.
