Fussy and Fancy Challenge #121-"Pets"!!!

Good Friday morning dear friends!!!

It's my turn to host a challenge at Fussy and Fancy and I have chosen "Pets" as my theme!!  We are being sponsored this challenge by the WONDERFUL Crafty Sentiments!!  Why did I chose "Pets"...umm well...these two boys keep me on my toes but their love is unconditional!!!

The sweet little Beagle/hound is Cash and the gorgeous Golden is Leo!!  Cash is a rescue that we have had for about two and a half years...Cash needed some TLC when we first found him...Leo we waited almost a year for...well he came with some digestive issues and some other minor health issues...that's where their "nutritionist" comes into the picture!  She has worked with me to balance out Leo's diet and work through some of Cash's issues...last week I found out that she is leaving for another job...SAD face here!!  Well I decided to make her a little card that I will put a spa gift card in from the boys to thank her for the care that she has shown to both!!

Here is my card from two grateful pets...
