Holiday Puppy Treats!

"Holiday Hi" to all my dear blog friends!

It's amazing how quickly Christmas has come and gone! I've found very little time for stamping and cardmaking this past month and regret the lack of blog posts too.

Now, I'm on VACATION until January 5th so hope to catch up a little this weekend before we fly out to VEGAS to spend New Year's with our daughter Katie and her fiance Warrick. Jim and I have never been there so it will be an "experience" for sure. We're not big gamblers, but hope to see the sights and take in a show or two. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate with no flight delays. I've heard there is an awesome rubber stamp store there so I plan to check it out. If you've been to Vegas and have any advice or recommendations, please let me know! :)

I do have a few little projects to share with you... this one is a little tag that I made to tie on a box of doggie treats from the "Three Dog Bakery". Have you ever heard of this place? The one I went to is in Omaha, NE at Village Point Mall. This place is amazing...a specialty bakery for dogs! Seriously, these treats look good enough to eat! I wish I could show you what I bought, but they had them all wrapped up and sealed. Next time, I'll take my camera in the store with me. ;) Our dachshund Lilly has two special puppy friends (Ava & Maggie) that like to bring her treats, so this was her gift to them.

Here's the "paw"ticulars on the tag... kraft paper from Stampin Up, layered on scrap piece of forest foliage green. The dachshund stamp is by Penny Black - "a romantic dog". There is a little flower in her mouth, but I covered it with the circle punch and made a balloon, stamped with the "holiday treats" stamp by Papertrey Ink.
And, of course, I had to include a photo of Lilly with her Santa hat that is now all chewed up. Needless to say, she did NOT like it! :) So, I'm happy I got at least one good photo of her.

Was SANTA good to you? I was spoiled, as always! My sweet DIL Jami & son Andy gave me two of the quilt stamp sets I've been wanting from Papertrey Ink. And also a wood-mounted stamp with the saying "All people SMILE in the same language". We did some stamping yesterday and it took us both a couple hours to create ONE card! I'll post those later...

Gosh, I've been rambling, haven't I? Wish we could all just get together and have a BIG StampFest for New Years! It would be such FUN to meet in person and get to know one another better. You are all such an inspiration and mean so much to me. Thank you for all your comments and words of encouragement.

Wishing you all joy & happiness...and a very blessed & peaceful New Year 2009!

I adore your dog Pam! I am envious of your trip to Vegas. Sunshine and warmth sounds so wonderful! I hope to have a report back on the stamping store. I love the casino New York for the vintage looking city and the little restaurants and bakery there. I don't gamble at all and have had a wonderful time in Vegas just going to see the sights and soaking up the sun before I go back to the rainy Northwest. Have fun and a blessed New Year!

Glad to see you are posting again! I continue to check your blog because I don't trust the feedblitz to get it to me fast enough! Have fun in Vegas. Give your self LOTS of time just for walking up and down the strip looking at the casinos. My favorites are the Venetian and the Bellagio.

Lilly is so sweet in her santa hat. Love the tag you made for the doggy friends. Vegas in unlike any other place. It can be dirty and gross or beautiful and sparkly. Seek out the beautiful and sparkly.

What cute treats, but even cuter is your little Lilly! I have wanted a daschund ever since I was a kid--my sister and mom both have had ones--and she is just precious!!! I have had to be content with a cat, and I can assure you, there would be no picture of Pumpkin in a santa hat!!! LOL!

I love this idea of the doggie treats. As a person who is owned by two doxies, I love Lilly too and hope your ideas keep coming and that Lilly continues to be an inspiration!

Hi Pam, just found your blog, it is great. Love your Lilly Girl, I have a Molly girl, black and tan mini dapple. She is the sweetest, I love her to death. Unfortunately she has a slipped disc since 3 1/2 weeks ago, doing much better, but it was sooooo sad at first. Doc told me today to keep doing what I am doing, since she is so much better. Hope you had a good time in Vegas!
