Goodbye to the Dog Days of Summer

Happy Fall everyone!!! This is my most favorite season of the year.  I love the cool, crisp days, changing leaves, bright blue skies, and watching nature prepare for the long winter ahead.  The squirrels and chipmunks in my yard could not be busier. I too have been busy creating in my studio.  This new cricut I purchased has provided me with so much inspiration.  In keeping with the theme of "Dog Days"  I thought I would share with you today some of the projects I made using the sweetest dog images.  All of these images have been cut using the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge.  This is a wonderful cartridge and the one that I use the most. 
I have sewn pockets into these greeting cards and turned the adorable puppy die cuts into magnets.  The magnets slip right into the pockets and then can be removed to hang on your refrigerator.  I thought it might be fun to send these cards to that special little someone in your life ---after receiving the card they would be able to hang the magnet in their locker at school.  Just a little reminder of how much you love them. 
This next little card I created just for fun.  I found this flannel fabric and it just reminded me of this Poodle die cut. 
Eventhough the Dog Days of Summer are behind us, the Dog Days never end at my house.  Everyday is a Dog Day.  Yes I will admit that my dogs just may be a bit spoiled. 
We even had some friends over to play one evening last week......
Mabel, Hannah, and Bailey   

Hannah and Mabel
They are half sisters :)
I am so glad that these girls are members of our family.  There is just something about the love and friendship of a dog.

Your puppie cards are adorable, especially the poodle one.
The real puppies are soooo cute too.

Have a great evening!

You are so creative! All of your projects are just great! And I think our pets should be pampered a bit! Old softies, that's what we are! :-)

Mimi, I am so happy I have found your blog through Joyce. I have been oogling your Cricut posts and all the wonderful things you have created. Yep, this will definitely have to be on my Christmas list this year! The garland you made was just too cute for words! I'm making a button for my sidebar of your blog so that I don't loose you again! Have a lovely weekend! Elizabeth
