TO MOM FROM MAX, WITH LOVE - Bugaboo Challenge

Hi Everyone!  This is Donna but I'm making this post today for MAX.  To my surprise, I got a phone call today from MAX, Mom's precious little dog.  He asked me if I would help him make a card for Mom.  He said that he appreciated all that she's done for him and wanted to send her something to show his appreciation.  He even wrote a poem - I mean, I knew Max was smart but I had no idea just how smart.

  • I used the Scruffy Puppy digi stamp from Bugaboo and used the Catch The Bug Color Challenge to make this card.  (Don't you think the digi looks like Max?)
  • I covered the cardbase with papers from the Love Nest by My Mind's Eye. 
  • I colored the digi with Promarkers.
  • The sketch for the card came from The Sweetest Thing.
  • Poem - written by MAX, typed by me in Word.
Now I know that Mom'll be reading this post but she'll just have to act surprised when she gets in the mail so that Max won't know I told.  He told me to keep it a secret - so mums the word!!

Thank you for stopping by today - we do so appreciate your visits and your comments.  Wishing you a sunshiny Monday - until another day - God Bless You!!  Donna
