For the Love of Dachshunds

At Bronner's Christmas store they had these adorable banana Dachshunds. I mean really, could they be any cuter?!?

I decided to do a mini album for this road trip, it's 8 x 8. I used the Mini Pennants, the heart from Holiday Monkey, and white embossing powder from My Stamp Box.

A Little Monkey Lovin' Valentine

Yep, I'm getting a jump start on Valentine's cards this year! This cute (if I do say so myself!) card uses the Holiday Monkey stamp set from My Stamp Box.

Add some sticker hearts, place monkey on card, and add the sentiment. And here's your wiener...
