ella turns 8!!!

ella is 8 today, and I made this super quick card to commemorate the day. I used a sheet from big top birthday dsp to make the background and accent and the big top birthday quick accents for the tag, and used the happiest birthday wishes hostess set for the sentiment.  I'm not very good at making the whirlygig things, I'll have to practice!  I used a 2" square of dsp and cut from each corner in to close to the center, then added holes for the rhinestone brad with the pokey tool.  putting the brad through the holes and then through the center is where I had trouble.  everyone else has really nice looking results.  I really need to practice!  after I made ella her card, I made her birthday "cake" with meatloaf and mashed potatoes, with crumbled bacon on the sides.  she loved it.  I have many more pictures of the "party" on my puppy blog www.thedogshonesttruth.blogspot.com if you're interested!

I thought we spoiled our princess Bess but she doesn't get a birthday cake like this. I'll have to remember this for the future ;-)

Too funny! Our first cocker spaniel I used to buy a can of dog food (which he never got any other time) and put a candle in it. Set him on a chair by the table with the dog food. Of course he would just get back from a bath and hair cut and looked so cute, in a manly kind of way.....
