Here's Henry's birthday card! Of course it had to have a doggy on it, and isn't this little dog by Whipper Snapper the cutest thing EVER?! I just fell in love with the image when I saw it, and I knew it had to be mine. The sentiment is from the CTMH Puppy Love set that I used on the party invitation a few posts back. This is also my first card using dew drops. I just bought a bottle from Ellen Hutson and I LOVE them! OMG. Why did I wait so long?! I only bought one bottle (Poinsettia - clear, pinkish red, olive, pale yellow) but I'm sure there will be more in my future! And how do you like my photo? I'm still playing around with pictures. I kind of like how well the card stands out on the white background though.

I couldn't figure out what sentiment to put in side the card, so I decided to go with a handwritten note instead. It won't mean a thing to him today, but hopefully some day he'll look back at it and it will make him smile the same way he makes us smile today. I can't believe my baby is two years old! *sniff, sniff*

Stamps: Whipper Snapper dog, CTMH sentiment
Ink: Basic Black, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Creamy Caramel, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey DP
Other: Copics, Poinsettia Dew Drops (The Robin's Nest)
