St. Patty's Pup

Hello friends and welcome visitors,

As some of you know; my sweet dog Louie (the Lou in Scrappin' with Chriss and Lou) passed away.  I seem to be getting through the grief and sadness.  I know that Louie would not like to see me crying all the time (he HATED it when I cried, he would stick his big nose in my face until I stopped.)  I have started to ask myself what would Louie want me to do?  
The answer is quite simple, rescue a dog just as we rescued him.  So we will start looking for a dog in "dire straights" like my sweet Louie was and rescue him.  Louie loved puppies and babies!  He would worry over a toddler like an old hen!  I was an assistant obedience dog trainer when Lou was about 4 years old, I would take him to the puppy socialization classes and he would lie on the floor and let the puppies climb all over him!

Anyway, enough of that....

Here is my project for today.

A very simple St. Patrick's day card.  I got it from SVGCuts Charm & Chance collection

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

D.L Art - March Linky Challenge
