I cannot believe it's November...and here in Manitoba, Canada as I sit here and type this we are experiencing 18 degree Celsius weather...it's like spring when we're usually gearing up for bitter cold!
But hey, I'll take it...it's not often you can wear your flip flops here in November!
But don't wait too long to head on over to the online store for your purchase...because I have a feeling this collection is gonna go fast!
Here's a closer peek at the card from a different angle...
And just in case you missed it on Facebook...many of the design team have their very own pampered pooches...and Liz, our social media guru thought it would be fun to share them with you!
Let me introduce you to Thunder...our very own pampered pooch!
Thunder is our "farm" dog...he patrols the property and makes sure that all is right in our little part of the world! He enjoys long walks without a leash (put one on and he sits right down and will not budge), exercising the cats (sometimes they walk nicely together...at other times he has them jogging), howling with the coyotes at night (until they get to close then he sends them on their way), and he absolutely loves gardening! (That's right...he tramples down all of the stalks to reap the corn on the cob and eats it, he picks cucumbers and feasts on them all day long...oh and pumpkins, yum yum!) Oh...and we cannot forget to mention that he is terrified of his namesake...you'll catch Thunder watching the skies for any hint of rain or lightning...and when the thunder rolls...so does Thunder...right onto our front deck trying to get the house door open to let someone know he would like to be let into the garage to wait out the storm! Lastly, Thunder hates being photographed! He can be sitting beautifully with the kids and I try to sneak out and take a picture and he's up and running as fast as he sees the camera...and when I do get to snap a pic of him...he firmly believes he must have his tongue sticking out...must be his version of a cheesy grin! LOL He's one of a kind...but we love him!
