One of the girl's at work wanted a card for her friend's 40th birthday - although he apparently only ever turns 33. ;) So I pulled out a Stampin' Up image, Lawn Fawn alphabets stamps and some felt letters I've had kicking around for a while and came up with this. As it's for a guy I'm going to enter it over at Young Crafters Unite's challenge to create a masculine card.
I spent today puppy sitting Franklin, my friend's new chocolate lab. He is the cutest, chubbiest little guy and also the sleepiest puppy I've ever met! He'll scamper around for about 45 minutes and then pass out for the next 2 hours! He'll even pass out mid-play like in the bottom picture - asleep with his toy still in his mouth!
Cardstock: (Kraft) PTI, (White) Bazzill Basics
Stamps: (Beer from Cheers to You) Stampin Up, (Letters from Smitty's ABCs) Lawn Fawn
Inks: (Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko, (Night of Navy) Stampin' Up
Colouring Medium: Copics
Letter Stickers: Craft supply
Other: Glossy Accents

Hey, staying at 33 is original if nothing else! This looks great with the giant letters and the popped-up mug. And that is one cute puppy! Remember, you'll have to give him back! ;)
Yeah, that pup is totally adorable. Such a deep rich chocolate color too. Your card cracks me up! Great design.
I love it...and I think I need to adopt that theory...I'm 33 and counting! And oh my, that little guy is oh so sweet.
That's a perfect card for the occasion! Love the number 33...very original! :) That chocolate pup is absolutely adorable! I've always said that would be the very dog I'd pick IF we ever decided we needed a dog! :)
Super design and a very sweet guy!
wow!!great design for masculine card! love it
Perfect masculine card! Love how you have only coloured and popped one image! Oh, the fun that lies ahead with a lab pup, hope your friend has plenty of energy... and shoes... and a high washing line...
Oh if only they stayed that cute and cuddly! Don't go getting brooch for another pup now will you ;0)
Great card..... 33! Who's he trying to kid?. Love the chunky cheers and the frothy pint :)
This is a perfect guy card, and I love the personalized sentiment. Lucky you having a sweet pup around to baby sit! He's adorable!
He's totally adorable!!! Great photos!
Great card for someone who remains 33. LOL! I love the beer mugs for a masculine card.
Aren't puppies the cutest? I just love these photos. Thanks for sharing!
OK, that's fabulous - 33 forever? I could get behind that! I really love the whole card - and how many guys don't like beer? Perfect for the challenge.
And how cute is that puppy?? And I've got a pretty cute one ;) How funny is that, falling asleep with his toys! Abby will fall asleep holding on with her paws, but not still in her mouth :) That's adorable!
now i have a plan for when i turn 40! love the card, so nice and personal and that beer looks almost drinkable :) the sweet puppy looks almost too cute to return, just as well you have two other cuties ;)
Labbies are just the cutest little puppies. Super cute photos, Jen. Clever card! Hugs xx
Fabulous card, Jen! And what an adorable puppie! I would puppy-sit him in a heartbeat!
Fabulous card Jen - love the personalised sentiment & the fun, felt letters!
Franklin is adorable! No doubt he is saving up his energy snoozing for now. Watch out when he gets a bit bigger & a "bit" mischievious, lol. :)
eeeek, the puppy is so adorable!!! I'm having a hard time deciding on what to say first because your card is totally ROCKIN but puppies are too cute! Puppy won, but seriously really love the card.
Franklin is so cute! I just want to squeeze the puppy rolls. :) Your card is SO COOL!!! I LOVE everything about it....so clever!
What a stinkin' cute puppyyyy!
Haha! Jen, I love the card, it's perfect. I also love the puppy, he's so cute.
Perfect guy card and a cutie of a little pup too!
