I KNOW!  I CAN"T BELIEVE IT EITHER!  That's ME in the middle row on the right!!  When Jennifer emailed me the good news I literally had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. Obviously, I am wicked excited as I have been a big Newton's Nook Designs fan since they opened, they won me over with their whimsical critter images, and it is an honor to represent this company.

I thought I'd create a little something new for you to feast your eyes upon as I celebrate my happy news, as you were kind enough to visit my blog.  My friends & followers already know how to love to distribute treats to Ty's neighborhood doggie friends on the holidays, and this year is no exception.  I could not find the totally consumable rawhide lollipops that I used in years past this year, so instead I opted for these festive rawhide 'candy canes' instead.
Isn't that sentiment 'Happy Howl-idays PERFECT for this?!!  I KNOW!!  The pup is from 'Canine Christmas' and is colored with Copic markers to try to match Ty baby's coloring and framed with some Nestabilities die cuts in festive colors (I was trying to make it resemble a wreath like the one around the pup's neck in the image).  I added a red eyelet (who says no one uses eyelets anymore?!!) and wove some red & white 'candy cane' twine through it and tied it in a great big bow.  One down... twelve more to go... LOL!

Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me share my exciting news with you!  I hope you will stop by the blogs of my new teamies as well - their addresses should be listed in the margin (if they aren't yet, they will be later today - didn't want to post too early and spoil the surprise, wink).  I hope all of your holiday preparations are coming along smoothly!
