Adopt don’t shop!

Hooray for pound puppies…

Happy Thursday from Skyway Drive! As a lot of you know, back in January we adopted a puppy (he’s a Chiweenie: 1/2 Chiahuahua 1/2 Dachshund) from our local SPCA. This was our first “pound puppy”. We had such an awesome experience. Our little man keeps our 13 y/o mini dachshund girls on their toes and keeps us laughing daily.

Keep reading…..this really does tie in with todays card!

Are you familiar with Whimsy Stamps? If not you should check them out! This set is called Adopt Don’t Shop DOGS, and yes they have a CAT version too. The really cool part is that if you purchase either of these sets from Whimsy they donate a $1 per set to their local animal rescue. I just love that. Plus the sentiments are very witty!

Are these not the happiest looking bunch of dogs ever? It was really fun trying to pick different colors for them.

I made this card for our Pet/House Sitter, and we do think she is a Star.
