The boyfriend knows this dog in New England. I did a rush job so when he goes back to work tomorrow, I may lure the owner into a purchase.. if nothing else, note cards!! And open a whole east coast fan base.
11x14" on Sueded board.

These days I am only making them as samples with purchase, but I have a program, Printmaster Gold (I assume it may be up to Zirconium by now) or my photopaint, which I size the paper, printer and layout to match and buy pre-scored blank wedding announcements at the local paper company. OR xpedx or Kelly paper are our guys. There are also pre cut announcements that are 1/2 of an 8.5x11 page that sometimes come with software to design your own.
Any help?

Yes, thank you.

I have a program where I put 4 of my paintings on a 8 1/2" x 11" piece of 68lb card stock and then cut them up for "Thank You" cards (for when I sell a painting or whatever else I sell on Ebay). Was in Michaels yesterday and saw a box of 25 blank cards with envelopes, but they were REALLY expensive. I had forgotten to check the paper company we have here in town. They are probably LOTS cheaper.

Thanks dj!!

So, so, so very sweeeeet! Awww!

He is gorgeous. I'm sure the owner will want it all to themselves (here's hoping!) :D

OMG! This is fantastic! When I saw the title, I was expecting a real Bull running the bases on a field or something. This fellow was a delightful surprise! I sure am glad I'm not the one who had to fetch the ball out of his mouth, though!

This is a SURE winner! Home run. I love the vignette with the hints of grass. It REALLY works well!
