Card for hubby =)

Hey everyone! Sorry, I know it's been almost a month since I've posted anything. I think I've just gotten lazy =). I haven't made much lately. Maybe I'll get back into the groove when I get my new catalog order on the 15th!!
I'm on hubby's computer right now. So I don't have my smilies or my watermark =(. I made this card for my husband last night. I'm pretty happy with how this one came out (this was sketch challenge #157 on SCS). I couldn't get a good picture of it though. I'm not sure if you can see it, but I stamped you make my life a beautiful thing above the elephant from it's a beautiful thing.

-Stamps-Wild About You, It's a Beautiful thing, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
-Ink-Ruby Red, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa

-Accessories-Old Olive & Ruby Red marker; Blue Bayou double stitched ribbon, Antique gold brads, ticket corner punch, Hodgepodge hardware

My dog Jingle just had puppies Saturday. They are adorable! I don't know what they heck they are though. The mother is a Pit Bull. We also have a mixed male Pit Bull, and my brother next door has a pure bread...but I'm thinking the puppies might be German Shepard. We didn't intentionally breed her, so I guess time will tell.
And those dang puppies are so LOUD! They got me up early this morning (we made a pen in the dining room for the mother and the puppies since it's too cold outside). She has 9 of them. She actually had 13, but she had a lot of complications, so 4 didn't make it =(.This is a picture of Jingle in a laundry basket. I always put her puppies in this when I clean their bed. Yesterday I put Jingle out while I was doing that. I brought her back in and put the puppies back in the bed and Jingle hopped in the laundry basket. I mean this is a small laundry basket. It won't even hold a whole load of clothes, lol.

When my pit had puppied by the "neighbor dog" we put her and her puppies in one of those plastic kiddy pools. It worked FREAT until the puppies go about 8 weeks old and learned how to crawl out. The good thing is it gave them all room to relax and play around.
