I Dig You!

I've been waiting and waiting for the 28th to get here? Why? Because I dig it! I actually really get excited EVERY month on the 28th, because that's the day that the Calendar Girls blog group has set aside for our monthly challenge.

This month Kelly is our hostess. She chose a FURRY fun challenge for us. Yep, because of her love for pets (she has a couple of dogs and a bird, I know), she challenged us to create cards that include images of furry friends. And because it's February, she asked us to include some red on our cards.

Now, this was definitely a fun challenge, and I suspect (though I could be wrong) that when you check out the other Calendar Girl blogs, you will probably see some pictures of real pets, too, not just cards. But here on my blog, there are no pets, because we are a pet-free home. EEK! It's true, much to the disappointment of our daughter who is now grown and living many miles away, we have never had a pet here in our household. I'm sorry! All you get to see here is a card.

And here it is...





Here's the inside (pretty simple):






Now, be sure to check out the other Calendar Girl blogs - their links are in my left sidebar. And leave them some loving comments - it will make their day. ;)


Thanks for stopping by!
