Snowman with Wind up Santa

Hi Friends. Hope everyone is enjoying their Thursday.  We were doing some walking with the puppy on the leash the past few days.  Some days good, some not so good.  She went all the way around the block yesterday, today she preferred to lay on her back and chew the leash.....GEEZ!  We start puppy training school next Monday night and it would be nice is she would walk in on a leash!!!!

Today's card is for the challenge at Sassy Cheryl's.  I won two free digi's last week with my Noah as Mickey card(Lucky ME)  I was so excited!!  The challenge this week is #128, the theme, "Your Favorite Color Combo"  One of my favorites,  is powder blue and red.  I chose this Snowman with wind-up Santa image for my card.

What a super special card. Love the soft blue. The thought of that baby of your's laying on her back chewing the leash just cracked me up. Don't you just love those moments? I know I do.
Good luck in "school" next week. Give kisses for me please. I just got home to my babies yesterday and I missed them so very much while I was gone.

Sue, this card is simply beautiful! Love all the details.

Good luck with the puppy training. My dogs are 6 and 8 now and I "think" i want a puppy until I remember the training stage-ugh! Ah, but nothing cuter than a baby anything!

I'm so glad you joined us this week for the Sassy Cheryl's challenge!
