Speckled Pup

We're starting another {Pin}spirational Challenge today so come on over and play along with us.  We're being sponsored by 2 Cute Ink who also provided some of the images you'll see from the DT.  Be sure and enter the challenge for your chance to win a wonderful prize package from Cute Ink.

Hubby and I were getting ready to go out to dinner with another couple the other day and after dolling myself up a little I asked him how I looked!  He said I was as cute as a speckled pup........GROAN!!!  Of course my response to that -  no, dear, these are liver spots, not specks!!!  LOL!


Anyway, 2 Cute Ink provided this image of the cute little pup and I just gave him a bunch of specks (not liver spots) - more like a dalmatian than a dachshund - but cute just the same.  I popped up the heart a bit and added the "LOVE" sentiment.



 Here's our {Pin}spirational photo for you!  Isn't this little puppy cute!  I love the glasses and muffler on him too! 

I've really been missing in action around here - but the good news is that I survived Thanksgiving weekend!!  WAY too many people coming and going.  Yesterday was spent getting the house back in order and dragging out a few of the Christmas decorations.  I didn't even look at the cyber Monday sales and am so proud of myself for that!  Hopefully, I'll get a card or two made pretty quick now and be back in the swing of things soon.

Thanks for stopping by.................
Lynn

Your puppy is simply adorable... and so is the sentiment. The patched up ear and the heart are so cute.
Glad that you survived Thanksgiving...
Much love,

I'm sure to Jim a speckled pup as just adorable and cute as this puppy. This represents a lot of love and fun and someone is going to be very lucky to receive it. Glad to hear you are getting back to normal.It seems to get harder and harder each year to bounce back from the holidays. I have to admit I did buy something on Cyber Monday, but it was for myself (the house actually). Bad Donna!!
Enjoy your week, Lynn.

What a cute speckled puppy, Lynn! I'm in awe of the spots you drew. They look so perfect and uniform. I know I would have had some strange spots going on! Glad you survived the Thanksgiving holiday. Now on to Christmas.

I don't know which is cuter, Lynn, your card or the inspiration photo. lol I have to do something for this challenge! Love the red & white combo and the sentiment style is wonderful. It reminds me of a Valentine, like those we used to exchange when I was in grammar school. :-D

Your speckled pup is adorable! I can't say I had the same will power as you, although I did most of my internet shopping on Black Friday.

Such a cute litter wiener pup! Aren't the holidays just exhausting! I need a vacation to recuperate ! and putting up and taking down decorations...I can't help but think...I could be playing with inks and stamps and paper....Must be a sign of well... a sign or something.

I love the popped-up heart :) And we need a better term than 'liver spots' or 'age spots,' don't we?
