Tis getting to be the season

I was most excited when a package of Christmas cards arrived from Linda, who has a lovely blog at Abby Creek Art. Linda’s blog is a treat to visit, because she paints wonderful animal portraits as well as abstracts. Just last week, Linda became a new mum of a lovely dog named Maisie Rose.

Recently, Linda opened an Etsy store to sell some of her paintings. When I saw these cards (pictured above), I couldn’t resist purchasing them. This is a reproduction of Linda’s painting of Bianca, a cute white Boxer. Click here to visit Linda’s Etsy Shop.

While I was photographing the card, Lytton, my big, brown dog, kept coming up and nudging me. It was near impossible to take a picture without the shadow of his tail showing up. Well, I ended up taking a close-up shot of Lytton’s adorable face. Once I did that, Lytton seemed content to go off and chew on one of his rawhide bones.

For the past few days, my son and I have had great fun watching Lytton carry his new rawhide bones around the house. He hides them in plain view, and then moves them about whenever he gets up from a nap. I don’t know who is getting more sleep these days, Lytton or me!

I would like to thank everyone who has left comments on my blog these past days. Your comments always cheer me and give me the motivation to continue posting to my blog every day. I promise to reply to your comments – I intended to do so today, but then off I went for a nap.

And now, I am off to sleep!

    That Lytton is quite the ham. Luna goes the other direction if I even get the camera out to take a picture of something or someone else.

    Hi Kate, That card is so beautiful! I love it. And I love the closeup of Lytton. I wish my dog would stand still long enough for a shot like that. Is it still snowing? I’m so jealous! :-)Take care~*~

    You’re not hibernating are you, Kate? 😉 Of course Lytton wanted you to take his pic as he’s such a handsome dog! That Christmas card is very cute so of course you had to buy it.

    The card is just wonderful. I checked out Linda’s Etsy shop and I was hoping to find a Bernese Mountain Dog card. No luck. Hope she does some one day. My daughter-in-law would love them.Aiyana
