GCU Design of the Day Award for Wish You Were Here featuring Labrador Puppies

Surprisingly, this card has been pretty good for me. I photographed it on a whim while I was in the islands and came across a mommy Labrador that was relaxing with her puppies on the boat docks.

So, I was again delighted when I received another email from Greeting Card Universe saying that my Greeting Card was chosen as today's Design of the Day. And, will be entered into the next Design of the Month Contest!

This is the email I received:

Congratulations, your card (Wish You Were Here - LabradorPuppies card - PID#586112) has been chosen as today's Design of the Day, and will be featured on the GCU homepage for 24 hours and be automatically entered into our Design of the Month Contest on Facebook. Thank you for helping make Greeting Card Universe great!

Pair Of GoldenDoodles Pose for St Patrick's Day Portraits

These two GoldenDoodles, named Izzie and Sadie were brought in by their owner to surprise her spouse. Having met on St Patrick's Day, a Shamrock theme was wanted for the dogs' portraits.

Right now I am at Happy Dog Bakery shooting Easter portraits, so I did not have a Saint Patrick's Day background specifically. So we decided on using a Buff colored background with St Pat's Day accessories. Cute enough ... but I really wanted to have it more special. After the shoot, I went into my digital darkroom and started playing with creating a new background. I came up with a very cute and fantasy looking backdrop that I will end up printing onto one of my actual backdrops. I just can't decide between the Blue or Green Sky! What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Here is the original photo:



And the Blue Sky version:


And the Green Sky version:






Once again, I'd also like to share another one of the other wonderful artists on Zazzle by showing you their St Patrick's Day GoldenDoodle designs.

Old English Sheepdog DAD DIVA DUDE and MOM

Just added another popular dog Breed to my DAD, DIVA, DUDE and MOM design. This time we have the Old English Sheepdog. Just lately, I have photographed a couple of this beautiful breed and was shocked to see that I didn't already have it in my collection. So, here you go. Each one is available on almost 400 products within Zazzle. Each has 3 different backgrounds The MOM and DIVA are available in the Pink Paws background as well as a Pink background and a White background. The DAD and DUDE versions are avilable in the Blue Paws background and a solid Blue background and a White background.

Here are a few example of each of the versions:



Perfect for Mother's Day, Birthdays, Christmas gifts ... or just because, you can find Old English Sheepdog MOM gifts here and Old English Sheepdog DIVA gifts here.

We all know how much DAD loves his dog, so, look here for Old English Sheepdog DAD gifts and if he's more of a DUDE, then look here for Old English Sheepdog DUDE gifts.

This large herding dog is a jolly but gentle well mannered pet who often amuses its family with its comical antics. Which is why the Old English Sheepdog is a favorite among Zazzle artists. So here are a few examples from my fellow artists at Zazzle.
