Winter Wonderland Pug Cards by jessicalynneart

This greeting card set by jessicalynneart aptly fits the first challenge of 2011. When I saw that the challenge was for "Winter Wonderland" I laughed because that was the name that I had already given to my pug greeting cards! The set features a photo of James Dean the pug in his winter gear, roaming in the snow. The image is printed on matte finish white greeting cards and is a great little greeting to send in order to get people into the spirit of winter.

I have always loved animals and I wanted a pug since I was a little girl. As soon as I graduated from high school in 2008, I used my graduation gift money not for college textbooks, but to rescue a pug! I rescued James Dean from the Pug Rescue of New England and ever since that day I have become increasingly more involved with volunteering for rescues and trying to help people become more aware of the number of animals that need to be adopted. I currently donate at least $1 from every item sold in my shop to the Pug Rescue of New England (PRoNE) or the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA). In my spare time, I am a volunteer dog walker for the MSPCA and I also volunteer my time at special events and fundraisers. My favorite way to help animals is by blogging about my own dogs, shelter animals in need, and other pet-related posts so that others can share in my love and respect for animals.
