Birthdays Balloons and Puppys-DT card for The Corrosive Challenge Blog

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing the card I made for the new challenge at The Corrosive Challenge Blog.
Our sponsor this fortnight is Sami Stamps

 The theme for our challenge is BIRTHDAYS.
 Simply make a birthday card, any kind for anyone, and enter it for your chance to win!  Please stop by our design team's personal blogs to and leave some love!
Happy Birthday to Regan, who is celebrating her birthday this month. If you stop by her own personal blog she has candy.
Sami Stamps images are so happy!  I chose this fun puppy image, Balloon Pup to work with weeks ago never imagining I would be coloring it up using my own puppy as inspiration!!(more about that later on)
The sentiment is from a SU set and it reads, Happy Birthday(call when it's time for cake.) 
The paper is from a Bo Bunny pack, Enchanted(disc.)
I've never colored fur before so this was a bit of a challenge and something that needs practice.
I added diamond glaze to the balloon and sprinkled some glitterfetti over top.

I've spent most of the Summer so far out at the lake glamping with Barry. We will go out on a Thursday/Friday, stay till Tuesday/Wednesday, then spend a couple of days at home doing wash and restocking supplies. 
Our lake lot is only an hour away and it's a really nice ride out there on the bike.
 During one of these wonderful weekendish get aways, Barry suggested we go visit our friends in Victoria on Vancouver Island.
( A 13 hour trip)
That would have been a fabulous road trip on the bike but the day we had decided to leave, it was raining. 
I don't mind and even expect some wet weather on a bike trip but starting out and  leaving in the rain doesn't thrill me so we took the car.
I love the Island!
The friends, food, and atmosphere make me feel like I could live there.
 While we were there we got to partake in the "famous" Paint-in on Moss Street.
That's not something you see every day and it was wonderful to see such amazing local talent.
This is what's at the end of Moss Street...
The Sea.

We had a fabulous time away, visiting with our good friends, J and H.
After a day back at home, we were headed back out to the lake lot/glamper.
At this point I'm not even sure where I am when I wake up in the morning and have to stop and think about it as my eyes open.
I should also mention that while I was home for two days I had the pleasure of taking two Finnabair classes in the beginning of July.
  Right here at my LSS, The Inked Stamper!!!
 I will be sure to share and show you the canvases I created in a future post
. By far the best classes I've ever taken and it was so awesome to meet Anna!

I'm thinking, my Summer has been abundantly fabulous! Then Barry suggested that we should get our puppy... the one we've always talked about getting...and lets do it right in the very next day!
He had been secretly looking at puppy adds on Kijiji and found a litter of  Yorkie/Lhasa Apso puppies ready for forever homes.
He showed me this pup's fun little face and I fell in love! 
The very next day we went to get her and brought her back out to the glamper with us for a week.
Meet Isabella, our new furr baby!
She moves so quickly it's hard to get a clear pic

I know right!? Adorable!! 

I'm looking forward to seeing your birthday creations so be sure to play along with us for another week at TCCB and you could win a $12 gift certificate from Sami Stamps.
Hope you're Summer has been enjoyable!
Girls Weekend...don't know why Jan is doing all the cooking. :)
