Happy Birthday From Duncan the Wonder Dog

Hi everyone, welcome to day two of the "Bethany's Birthday" posts.  Today's post features the card that Duncan (the wonder dog), our Pomeranian, gave to Bethany for her birthday.  Duncan is a great pet!  He is fun to play with, wonderful to cuddle with, has a people-lover attitude, AND he gives great Christmas and birthday gifts to his family members!!

Duncan loves to ride in the car and all we have to do is get out shoes and Duncan begins to get excited to go with us.  He is most unhappy when he cannot come along and is generally pacified with a small treat!  But when he can come along, he is one happy boy!  It seemed fitting that his birthday card for Bethany should be a reminder of one of his favorite activities.

Duncan's birthday card features a fun digi image titled "Pretty Pet Besties" a Halie and Harley Digi Stamp by Sherri Baldy.  And just like my other recently used digi image was purchased at the Scrapbook Stamp Society site.  I used Close To My Heart alcohol markers to color most of the image - thought digi Duncan was colored with Copics. 

I used Happy Birthday cardstock and assorted scraps from my stash to make the card.  The word "Birthday" and the swirls and confetti were cut from the Silhouette America store file "Birthday Doodles" (which actually has a number of cuts that I did not cut).   The card was finished with assorted embellies from my stash.

Bethany told Duncan that he looks adorable in goggles and that they need a scooter so they can ride around together!  Thanks for stopping by Busy with the Cricky today.  I will be back tomorrow with another new project.


  1. Oh love the bright colors in this one Susan! It's another fun card, the digi is just too cute!! Our Pockets loves to go too, but she wants to go to the farm! lol Everytime my hubby puts on his boots she starts whinning and begging. Sounds like we both have such cute and spoiled pups! lol I bet Bethany loved this card too!

  2. How fun! Bethany is one lucky gal. xxD
