Missing You

Hey it is me! Yep, I am back from vacation and this is the perfect card to post today. It is a card that I made for.............. well this is a little confusing, it was made for my friends dog to give to her and her family when they returned from their trip to Chicago. My oldest son was "dog sitting" as you may say and so we spent a lot of time with their dog- and you could tell he missed his family so the last night I made this card to leave at their home upon their arrival. We then found out it was HIS birthday, I should have made him a doggy birthday card too~ The image is a Whipper Snapper and I used the SU designer series papers.

So anyways- a little about the vacation to Nuevo Vallarta- it was a great flight both ways, the weather was fabulous, had a few rain showers (it is their rainy season) in the evenings but it never once interrupted more than the evening uno game on the patio, which we took inside. It was so beautiful to wake to the ocean, the sunshine and the sound of the water. I just love it! I will miss it greatly and we will begin our next planning endeavor next week. So- I leave you with this picture that my son took. He spent a great deal of evenings taking pictures of the sunsets and the beach and I thought this one was pretty awesome.

I am going to get to work so I have some goodies to show you this week AND I really must put out some candy soon- don't you think?

Heidi, this card is so beautiful. Love it.. I love Whipper Snapper too and was a great idea do a card for the doggie and his family. :))

We just loved the card and were glad to get home! Your family did a great job dog sitting! I couldn't resist, I reused the card to give to our neighbors dog from Thunder when she got out of the doggie hospital. We attached it to a little bag of treats and I redid the words to "Get Well".
