Birthday Pelican

Hi there! How's your Halloween? Hubby and I pretty much hiding. LOL, with 2 dogs that bark like crazy whenever the door bell rang, it's easier for us to just turn off all the lights and make it look like no one's home. I know, I know... what a party pooper. But, with no kids, Halloween is just not a big deal in our household. 

I do dressed up Ollie my pug now & then. This pic from a couple years ago when she got her li'l devil costume. And, the costume didn't stay on her for long. :) She actually has 2 costume. I got her an angel one when I first got her then this one. 


Isn't she a cutie? I know, I am bias. I am her mom and like any mom I think my "kids" are the cutest. Hah!

Now, how about a cute card? I entered this card for Paper Crafts WCMD, but obviously it didn't make the cut. I still think it's super cool, seeing I came up with the idea of the crab holding a birthday candle for the pelican. And, yes... it's real candle. 

Challenges:
Lily Pad - Texture
Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes

The cute pelican and the crab are from Paper Smooches, who is one of the fabulous company that donated prizes for Cards That Care card drive. They have the cutest stamps!

And, just a reminder... in 2 days I'll be hosting Cards That Care blog hop!! We have about 40 participants and lots of prizes! So, come Friday, make sure you check back here as the hop will starts right here. Have a great Wednesday everyone.
