Doggies on Bloggies H'ween parade + FBD cards 'n news!

You have GOT to be kidding! :)-


Are you having a wickedly fun day?!  We've dressed up twice, partied twice, and its' not even H'ween night, lol!  I am not a fan of H'ween myself but the kids love to find *the costume* and dress up.  This year, the girls are heading out to a masquerade ball and we're taking lil man to Trick or Treat around our neighborhood :)

In celebration of Halloween, I wanted to show off my Fresh Brewed Designs card!  I also wanted to remind you of the DT call that Heather has going on - you can find the full details of the call right here!  My spooky card for you today is using the digi Smiling Jack and you can see him and many other digi goodies in the shop  Here is the sketch we were given to follow:
FBD Sketch 5
And here's my smilin' jack card ....

 Now, on to the fun!  It's a blog hop for our sweet fur baby doggies in their H'ween finest!  This idea was the brainchild of Catherine! We did a similiar hop last Christmas where we dresseed up our doggies in their holiday clothes, lol!  TOO CUTE it was!  Sadly, Brandy is not well enough for this hop :(  We didn't hear back from the vet so the waiting to hear about her results is a bit excrutiating, but her spirits are good, she's resumed a small walk and is eating well and drinking lots :)
Buddy, however, is in his glory and super photogenic!  He LOVES the camera!  He sits and looks at the camera, and even strikes a pose, loL!  This was *not* the costume I had planned for him - he shamelessly fits into my daughters Build-a-Bear outfits, ROFL!!  But my daughters Kaitlyn and Chrissy spent all day a few weeks ago making him an outfit for the Fall :)   They sewed some pants - including the tail hole - out of an old jean skirt BY HAND! They made a matching shirt, complete with patches and a kerchief, ROFL!  He was not having much of this, lol, but he was such a dutiful puppy and put up with his runway walk and glamour photo shoot :)  Take a look!  Introducing Old Mc-Buddy, aks Farmer Buddy!

Now hop on over to my fabulous doggie mama's blog and see what their gorgeous fur babies have on today!  LOL!!
Here's a "gimme paw" to all and lots of love and mucho Milk Bones in the buckets today!!* :)


  1. Awww, Kelly! Your Halloween card is great! Mr. Jack never looked better!

    And Buddy! OMG! How can you not melt every time you look at that face? He's a bigger ham than Oliver! Mr. Farmer Buddy would fit in beautifully around here, let me tell ya, and your girls did a beautiful job putting his "outfit" together. What fun they must have had! Buddy... not so much, but yes, he is a sweet pup to happily parade around in his farmer duds. Thanks so much for sharing, and wishing you all a super Halloween! Special wishes and healing puppy hugs for Miss Brandy, too!!
