A Dog and More Birthday Cards

I've already shared the following on Facebook and my Questioning blog, but I wanted to share it here because it makes me smile. Every. Single. Time.

My husband did RAIN--the Ride Across Indiana--on Saturday, so he was gone Friday night. When I went to sleep, Daisy was curled up at the foot of the bed, but when I woke up, I felt a paw pushing on my shoulder. When I rolled over, I saw this:

"Oh, hi."

This dog leads a very rough life. Don't you feel sorry for her? Sure you do.

Anywho, I must concede defeat in yesterday's post. Most of you preferred the second card to the first, and as I stared at them, I realized that my photo angle must have changed how I perceived the second card (I said it looked squished). The AR/OC in me likes the first card because of the centered sentiment, but the designer understands the sweet spot is pretty powerful.

Now, onto today's cards.

For today's cards, I simply continued the idea of yesterday's cards, but used different sentiments and images in the fabulous It's Your Birthday set from Clearly Besotted.

I really like the balloon card, but the candle card...not so much. I think the strong verticals of the font look way more better with the curvy lines of the balloon.

Way more better. That's what my grandmother used to say. She also used to say, "It don't make me no never mind." That means, "It doesn't matter to me." I love Southernisms.

And now, to bed.

stamps: Clearly Besotted

  1. they are both terrific. i panicked when I read "way more better" and heaved a sigh of relief when you mentioned it. don't freak me out!!

  2. What a great way to wake up! Love your CAS style!

  3. Your dog is LOVED, that's what it is!

    LOVE the cards too, especially the purple one!


  4. Hubs may have been replaced--our fur babies are the best

  5. Cool cards, and sweet Daisy! My Coco is not allowed on the beds. She has broken every other rule in the house, but that one is still in place, lol! She just puts both paws up on the edge of the bed and pokes me until I notice her. ;-)

  6. Your doggie picture is so cute! The cards are awesome. You have a wonderful and dynamic assortment of sentiments. The balloon card is my favorite of the two.

  7. I like them both! Thank you for sharing!

  8. I've always liked, "That don't hurt the runnin' of it none".

  9. Awwwww, she's the cutest! My husband wants a dog and I keep putting him off. Little does he know how powerless I am against the charms of a gorgeous Golden puppy!

    I do prefer the juicy looking balloon, but it may also be that I like that orientation more.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
