No Snow


When you live in this part of Texas, you rarely see snow - and even when we do, it's only a dusting!   When we do see it around here the entire town shuts it's doors, school is cancelled, and traffic comes to a complete stand still (we also don't know how to drive in it)!   Since little Rambo (our doxie) has never seen snow I'm not sure what he'd think of something like that.  I just image it'd be a little chilly on his belly though!  He does love a nice little patch of green grass and sunny skies.

This cutie is one of the stamps from the Holiday Hounds set from Newton's Nook.  So many cute stamps in that set!   I marked through "the" in the sentiment and added a handwritten "no" and then sponged in the sky and added the die cut grass.

I'll enter this in the following challenges:  Inky Paws Challenge at Newton's Nook (Christmas) and  Addicted to Stamps and More (Holiday).

Thanks for stopping by!
Lynn

This is a darling image and you've done it up nicely. Outstanding job on your sky work also. Neither of our babies like the snow or the rain at all but when Our Daisey (the one that is vertically challenged) goes out in the snow her legs and belly are all covered in snow and that is just if we have 1/2 inch. Most times she will put her nose down to sniff and then her face is covered also. It is so darn cute to see. I do hope you had a nice Thanksgiving and I'm wishing you a fun weekend.

SOOO Cute Lynn!! I never thought about a doxie not knowing about snow because I'm so used to the idea! LOL!! It's soo funny to watch them jump up and down through the piles of snow!! We have to shovel a special "path" for her because it does get really cold on their bellies! :)

LOVE your card and your cute interpretation of the sentiment! LOL!!

Lynn this is brilliant, the no snow is perfect and how cute is this little guy ? xx

nwilliams6 said...

Super cute! Great idea to mark through the word and add grass - we have the same weather here and our animals freak out when it snows. Fun card! Hugz

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

Love the way you have the grass doing a tummy tickle! So cute! I was hoping that Santa was going to bring my Doxie for Christmas, but not looking promising.

Carol L said...

oh my gosh, this is so adorable! I love the tangled lights around this cute doxie, and I especially love the way you personalized it to suit your Texas weather! Cute cute cute!

NanaConnie said...

It's a perfect Rambo card, Lynn! ROFL on the change in the sentiment. Too funny. Hugz

Lynn McAuley said...

Loving this well lit doxie, Lynn! What an adorable holiday design Texas style!

When we had the white Christmas of 2004, my pup loved running in the snow! We had about a foot on the ground for about 24 hours.

Tammy said...

Awww this is so cute Lynn! I love that adorable doxie! What a fun design and fabulous little sun!

Another cute Rambo Santa. Loved the sentiment, and your reconstruction of it. Just Perfect for a low-slung little doggie. Our grand-hounds wouldn't know what to do it in either. Three would be above it, but Chuck would be draggin', for sure. He has one little spot he can scramble up on the patio where they are let out for 'duty'. This is adorable. TFS & Hugs (oh yes, loving those great clouds too).

Barb said...

too cute--love the image and the colors are awesome!

Kylie said...

Brenda said...

Gosh Lynn, this card is adorable! I love how you crossed out "the" and added "no" in. Too cute! That little dachshund is so cute wrapped up in the lights. I don't know how you get the sky clouds like that but I sure do love it! I will share our snow with you. lol Too bad I can't box it up and amil it to you. lol Hugs, Brenda
