A Rrruff Birthday

Happy Tuesday all. Yesterday my husband had his last birthday...so he says. He said getting old is for the physically fit. Well...in dog years...he'd be dead!

We had a great afternoon yesterday. Two cakes, several dogs and a few family members all came to celebrate his birthday. Later we rode up to a local casino and enjoyed a beautiful room in their hotel overlooking a stunning garden and mini waterfalls. This morning he let me indulge myself and we had breakfast in bed. I let him know…that if he wasn't having any more birthdays…we could just stay twice as long on my birthday.

Being that I knew there would be several dogs at his little party…I thought this card would be perfect. Using the brand new set from The Rubber CafĂ© "Birthdays & Balloons", I made a fun gate fold card that reminded him…he was still among the living. Starting with a sheet of cream cardstock 6" x 10", I scored at 2 ½" & 7 ½", folded each gate in and decorated. The Nestabilities from Spellbinder are great for layered mats. Adding just a touch of brown brings out the blues and greens in this card.

The dogs in this set are toooo cute to pass up.

The sentiments are very fun and funny. This is a great set for the dog lover, just the fun birthday or any other dog loving occasion.
