Fabulous Cricut AND Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge

Hello fabulous people!!!  I hope you all had a great day today!  My day was just ok.  Had a strange morning...got up and took hubby to work and once I got back home, I started feeling dizzy and groggy.  So I laid down and next thing I know I am waking up to my telephone ringing at 11am.  WOW!  Didn't mean to waste my day.  Anywho...I still managed to make a card (and a set of them at that).  I didn't want to "just make a card" though.  Yesterday was my grandmother's dogs birthday (she made it a point to let me know via facebook since I had posted about my dogs losing his tooth...silly story, but my dog is known for eating anything he can find on the floor...so I went to go take it from him and discovered he was trying to eat his own tooth).  I was staying with my grandmother a few months ago, while the hubby was in recruiting school.  I got my dog about a month before we moved from her house and my dog and her dog became almost inseparable.  Therefore, I made a card "from Squirt."  LoL!  I even put his paw print on the card as his signature on the inside...cute, huh? 

I am also entering this card into the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge and the Fabulous Cricut Challenge.  The Peachy Keen Challenge was to use their sketch, which I have done. 
The Fabulous Cricut Challenge was to to incorporate something sweet into the project (i.e. ice cream, cake, candy, etc.), which I have also done.  GO ME!  Hehe!  I think I am starting to get a hang of this blog/challenge thing and I rather like it! 

Here is my card....
