Hi Everyone!
I thought today warranted a special post to celebrate Gilby's 6th Birthday!!! & since he has 400 FABULOUS Followers, Gilby thought we should give out some DoggieTreats (not actual dog food of course) to one of our Fabulous followers. You don't have to a follower to win, just leave comment wishing Gilby Happy Birthday & a way for us to contact you. We can't thank you enough for taking your time to pop on over & for all your sweet comments, it really means a lot to us!!!

I honestly can't believe our little pupster is 6, the time has gone by so fast. He's just the best little pup ever & he does the silliest things, I suare I think he can actually talk & I don't mean barking, though he's very good at that! He is part of our family, we each have our special bond with him. I'm his human pillow whenever he feels the need for one, he just plops down on me, no matter what I have in my lap, he's also my co-worker. I work from home & he keeps me company by laying in his bed next to me or sitting on my lap & he's always around when I craft, hence the name gilbyscraftster.

It will probably seem like any other day to him, except he will get more lovin', get to play more, take a longer walk & get more carrots, oh & of course lay on
Normally we would take him to this outdoor ice cream shop called Carousal Treats, but this year, we will until Brandon get's back from spending time with his Nana & Pappa. This might be Brandon's last B-Day Celebration for a while since he will be heading off to college next summer. This ice cream place is sooo cute, it's out doors & they allow dogs. He always gets the "pup cup", which is free for all the dogs. It's vanilla soft serve with a Milk Bonem on top. He devours that thing lickety split & then he's just a sticky I'm sure he doesn't mind though, I know that when my chocolate/vanilla swirl cone has dripped all over me, I don't mind because it's totally me, worth

I thought I would share some pictures of the little guy when he a puppy (warning I got a little carried away) & the Birthday Card I made for him. We hope you enjoy!
Sooo cute! (SB page I made yrs ago)
 He & My Hubby bonded instantly (also SB page made yrs ago)
Mommy & Gilby time (no makeup-eeks)-yrs
Awww, fast alseep
He hasn't quite grown into his legs
"Another picture"???
I'm sure you have noticed that he is no longer black, tan & white now!
Right after he had his first trip to the groomers, it was all gone!!!
Still the cutest Pup though!!!

The bone is made from Polymer Clay (which I made years ago), I thought it was too dark so I painted it a lighter color & then used some Tim Holtz "Gathered Twigs" ink & glazed it.
My husbands favorite color is blue & that is the only color he will let Gilby wear (collar & leash) except when VT is playing & then he wears his jersey of maroon & gold. So, as you can see I used a lot of blue on the card which is Tim Holtz "Broken China"
Stamps are PBD "You take the Cake", "Furry Friends" The #6 is by MCT "All Around Birthdays"

I know it would make Gilby's Day if you were to wish him Happy Birthday & maybe even became a follower of our Blog if you wanted, though it's not required to win. If you share it on FB you can leave a separate comment. We will announce the winner on Wednesday night  sometime on Friday, so you have until Wednesday 6pm EST, until 11pm EST Thursday to wish Gilby a Happy Birthday. Be sure you leave a way for us to contact you. I bet you are wondering what kind of Doggie Treats Gilby is giving away, well he wants to keep it a surprise, but he knows whoever wins will definitely Dig it!!!..LOL
