Thanks For Working Like A Dog

One of my co-workers helps run the Meridian Humane Society here.  She is always sharing information about new dogs they have taken in.  ANYWAY, apparently four veterinary students helped them to build a web site.  Not only did they help to build it, they paid for the web site for a year.  How sweet is that?!!!?  She asked me if I could PLEASE make four thank you cards for these "veterinary geeks"...My very first thought was of a dog sitting at a computer in glasses with his cup of coffee.  I asked a couple of the artists I design for if they had anything or if they were interested in drawing something...they weren't, so I went searching.  I found and purchased this fun image from Cornish Heritage Farms..pretty much exactly what I was thinking, don't ya think?  :)  I had to change the sentiment since it was supposed to be a thank you note.  Due to the fact that I have a difficult time making two of the same cards I used the same papers and came up with four different cards.  I used a fun EK Success dog paw print edge punch on a couple and a fun dog paw print embossing folder by Darice for the others.  I added buttons, pearls and twine on a couple (actually I used the twine on all of them), I used a fun fire hydrant on one, brads on one, and gems on one.  Here they are:
