So at the beginning of June I looked at my “dates to remember” and saw my step-mother-in-law’s birthday was that month. Well, it came and went before I remembered it. Since we are really late I wanted a card that was specifically for missing a birthday. So I went searching through my images and the internet for inspiration. In hashing out ideals with my husband we came up with two dogs and a ball with the sentiment “Doggone it, we dropped the ball”. So I went directly to my Doodle Pantry folder as I remember these cute dogs. My husband is a Photoshop guru so he put the dogs and ball together to make it look like us…he even added collars…adorable!!

Doggone it

Now I saw all the red, white and blue challenges out there but since it was passed I really didn’t think I would get to play in them. But with the ball being the primary color that is what I went with. Not sure while all my cards were CAS yesterday since that is not my “go to” styles. I used Freshly Made Sketches #191 as my inspiration.
