The lovely whippet ...

Today's card has a story with it. About a week ago Terry was at Lowe's and saw a woman walking in the store with her whippet. He had to take a second glance at the dog as he looked just like our Banjee. Terry went over to her and started a conversation. To make a long story short, they exchanged names and numbers to set up a play date for the dogs. How funny is that? This past Saturday she had us over to her house to visit and let all three whippets play. Her whippet, Scout, is much older and is pretty much in the just chillin' stage of life. He is such a sweetie! Banjee and Sadie just wanted to wander through her house and get treats. It was a fun morning and I could tell it meant a lot to Charlotte. She too is a sweet person ... I've always had a soft spot in my heart for older people.

This card is for Charlotte and her best friend, Scout.  I used this week's MOJO sketch as my beginning point.
I am more of a square person when it comes to cards but I love circles on my squares.  Here is my ending point ...

Stamps:  Fabulous Phrases, Whippet (source unknown)
Paper:  River Rock, Chocolate Chip, White
DSP:  Slab III (Paper Studio)
Ink:  Memento Black, Chocolate Chip
Accessories:  Prismacolor pencils, OMS, ribbon and brads (H.L.), Spellbinders rectangle, square and scallop dies, spritzer, dimensionals
All supplies are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.

This is a 4 1/4 by 4 1/4 card.  

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,
Pam~
