an oldie but a goodie AND 3 cheers for chairs

**the Moxie Fab 3 cheers for chairs pic is at the bottom of this post!

Wow! The Papertrey Blog Hop is so much fun! So many wonderful ideas and fatastic cards. Thank you to everyone who said such nice things about my card.

On to a card! The current CARDS blog challenge is to submit your favourite card ever. I thought, how am I going to figure that out? But actually it came to me pretty quickly! The one I chose is my favourite for so many reasons, mostly beacause it features my dog Dakota, who has since passed on. She was originally my mom's dog and I ended up "inheriting" her. I made this card for her old vet, once she (Dakota) got settled in her new home across the country.

My new card to share is for the Moxie Fab challenge "three cheers for chairs". Visit the blog for some very cool chair stuff! I don't have acually any stamps that were just a chair or sofa, but I found a cafe type chair & table in one of my Unity Kit of the Month sets and thought I could try to use it. Now my card isn't innovative but it was really fun to make! :)
I had to modify three of the Unity stamps I used. The lampost wasn't tall enough so I inked the top, stamped it then inked the bottom and stamped it. Then with a ruler I drew in the middle part of the post. The other stamp was the table & chairs, but the table had a teapot and 2 teacups on it. I didn't want that for this card so I placed a piece of a post-it over the part I didn't want and inked up the rest of the stamp. It worked, mostly, OK. Then finally, the saying was attached to a stamp of a bird, so I just stamped and cut it out so I could pop it up like a "real" thought bubble! The mouse is from the Hero Arts elephants sets. I LOVE his plaid shorts!
Well thanks for looking, I am off to do a couple more challenges before I have no time. I must work this weekend. Have a great day!
