Chester's First Birthday

I just came across a challenge website that encourages cards for children.  They accept donated cards, and give them to hospitals for the sick children in the hospital.
It is Send A Smile for Kids This card will not qualify for this challenge, but I will certainly be looking to the future to do some cards for this worthwhile cause.  Please take a look, and consider sending a smile to a kid. 

365 Cards That's a First -- Chester (our mischievous grand puppy) just turned one.  His "parents" had a party for him.  So this is for Chester -- it could, of course, be used for a real birthday too.

I used this sketch from Cardabilities :

I am also putting this on Addicted to CAS - The key word is "Pet".  While it is not really clean and simple, it is most definitely for a pet. 

Over at Sweet Stampin they are celebrating their 4th anniversary.  Check out the great cards there!

And at Wags n Whiskers they are looking at cards for kids.

The puppy stamp is from Inkadinkadoo -- it is actually a set for baby cards.  I colored him with copics, and added some flock to his ears. For real, he is a cute brown cock-a-poo with a white chest and toes. 

The papers are from Stampin Up.  I cut the die cut the balloon, added some crystal effects for shine.

In case you haven't met Chester, here is a pix of him this summer.  And the next shot is him helping me with my card-making.  You can see the results of his card-making help here: woyww-seriously


Thanks for looking!!
