GCU Design of the Day for Christmas Deck the Halls with Doggies Photocard

WhoooHoooo! Another award came into my email box this morning telling me that my Christmas Greeting Card "Deck the Halls with Doggies" took today's Design of the Day. This series of cards have been one of my favorites for Christmas. I have about 100 Dog Breeds represented in this design, but, sometimes people would like their own pet to be in the photo. So, I made a version that anyone could upload their own photo into. I also made versions for Kitties, Horsies, Fishies and Birdies!

this is the email I received:


Congratulations, your card (Deck the Halls with Doggies -PID#849160) has been chosen as today's Design of the Day, and will be featured on the GCU homepage for 24 hours, as well as the GCU Facebook page. Thank you for helping make Greeting Card Universe great!

Custom Request for 2 Year Old Birthday Invitation Featuring a French Bulldog

Keep those custom requests coming. This time Lori saw my Birthday Cupcake invitation featuring a French Bulldog and wanted a version made for her 2 year old's upcoming Birthday party. She wondered if I could make it so that only two candles appeared on the cupcake, representing the 2 year old milestone. No problem! I used a new cupcake and added the appropriate number of requested candles. Here you go Lori ... hope you love it!
 
This Frenchie is now ready to send out Birthday invitations!

Maverick the Pitbull's Private Photo Shoot

I spent the afternoon photographing the cutest and most lovable Pitbull named Maverick. He's a 1.5 year old male and full of spunk and vigor. Lucky enough to live on a large piece of property full of trees and his very own pond. He was a delight to photograph as he did what he does best ... which is running and playing with the neighbors dogs, running through the woods and stopping to inspect everything he came in contact with. From all the photos, I created this composite. So hard to choose ... so full of personality that shined through.
