Punch-y thank you to you!

Hello!  Hope your weekend is off to a nice start!   I worked on a few thank you cards last night that I wanted to share with you!  I am a huge fan of punch art...anyone else?!  I have oodles of punches and drag them out all the time! I love playing with the punched pieces and seeing what else can be created from them besides their intended shape.  It is kind of cool to see a flower form from a handful of ovals, or a birdhouse from a square and triangle, or a cute bug from a bunch of circles!  You can make so many fun things!  The possibilities are endless!  My card today uses punch art, but I must fess up that this cute little guy is not my original design. He has been floating around the internet for a while so I do not know who to give the original credit to.  If he is yours, please let me know! I have tweaked him and altered him a bit though to make him more my own.   :)

Recently, we lost our very sweet dog to doggie heart disease.  We spent quite a lot of time between our vet's office and the Canine ER.  We were fortunate enough to have an amazing, caring team of folks that worked with us in both places.  They went above and beyond to offer very loving care to our pup and to us.  We wanted them to know just how much we appreciated them so I put together a couple of cards to send them.  

Is he not just the cutest little guy?!  Makes me grin every time I look at him!

Dogs = Happiness! :)
