From The Gang - Seize the Birthday

First of all, I'm sorry I've been missing in action and haven't been by to visit anyone's blog the last few days.  We had a horrible wind storm on Monday with so much damage.  Other than losing half the roof, tree limbs everywhere, and a broken windshield on the car, we also lost the internet!  EEK!  I'll probably be a little bit "hit and miss" for several days but I haven't forgotten about anyone and will be by as soon as I can!

Now on to our Seize the Birthday challenge this week!!  We're using the same sketch as last week but need to see your masculine cards now.  Again, we're sponsored by The Alley Way Stamps...so many great stamp sets to choose from there.  Be sure and join in on our challenge this week for a chance to win a cute stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps!


I used the three little pups and a sentiment from "The Gang" (The Alley Way Stamps) set.  I guess this will have to be a birthday card from Jim (the BIG dog), Rambo (the furry one - even though it doesn't look like him) and from me - the chihuahua (the CUTE one with so much stinking personality)! LOL! 








Be sure and come on over to Seize the Birthday and join in on our challenge with your masculine birthday card.

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

Loving the dogs, Lynn, especially the chihuahua and the way you made his (her) ear go out of the box! Great technique. I really like the splash of red. :-D
So sorry to hear about all the damage at your place. The clean up is never fun. Glad you're all safe.

OMG Lynn, you've been through a terrible ordeal down there. I'm so sorry to hear about that storm and the damage it caused you guys. On to your darling card for Jim. I knew you would be the stinkin cute chihuahua, that just screamed "you" to me. LOL. I'm sure Jim will love this one. I know I do. Hope your weather gets better.

That is the cutest image and your card is just adorable! We had 2 chihuahua's along with our doxie (all at the same time, yes!) so I'm partial to that little doggie on the right side ;)

Monica said...

Hi Lynn, sorry that this storm was such a mighty one but thank God you are safe and sound.
Your card is lovable. So cute. And the baker's twine bow looks so attractive.
Much love,
M

Oh yikes...another cute doggie card. We have 3 granddogs who are fostered grayhounds, and always looking for dog stamps (not too lucky at finding greyhounds though). This is just adorable, and the layout you followed is a wowser. Good luck with your cleanup. We had pretty sunshine today, but a biting wind. Guess March is coming in like a lion. TFS this cutie. Hugs

Karen said...

Cute doggy birthday card Lynn. Love the clean look of it. I hope that the storm damage has been cleaned up and you are able to get on with life. I guess it had something to do with the snow storm that hit Texas. Glad to see that you are ok.

Davi said...
