My Halloween Prize & The Cards Are Ready!

Remember last month, me, Butchy & Snickers won Chloe's Halloween Costume contest? Well yeah, the prize finally reached my home on Monday, the day after the X'mas photo shoot.

Here's the big prize. I struggled a bit trying to open it so I gave up after a while. Mommy helped me to open it after that...

This is the first prize I took out from the box. It's a rope toy! This is my fourth rope toy now. I will keep it 1st & play wit it next time.

These are all the goodies Chloe gave me. She gave me a bag of fried pig's ears strips, a bag of small bone-shaped chewies, a chew bone, a Nutri Dent chew, a congratulations card & a picture of herself.

Here's a closer shot of the card & a picture of pweetty Chloe...

This is the Nutri Dent chew. Oh, I love these green types of chews like Greenies. They taste really good so does the fried pig's ears! Oh my, the smell of those ears are soooo tempting. Mommy only use those for training...

Chloe, thank you soooo much! I really like all of them including the toy but my sista Chloe kinda like stole my big chew bone. Oh nevermind, she loves those stuff anyway so I give her my bones most of the time.

Okay now, the cards. They are ready! Mommy got them printed out at a shop last night & they were ready within 20 minutes. There are 48 cards in total & all together cost RM60(US$120) It sure was expensive but the card paper is really good quality. It's shiny & shimmering.

Here they are mommy. Let's start!

Here they are!

Aren't they nice? Mommy designed it in photoshop by herself. She's very artistic... This is a big A4 size card which we're gonna frame it up coz it looks sooo pweetty! Damn, we look sooo good on those cards, hehe!

Here's me writing on the back of the card...

Then I put it in the envelope & seal it, heeheehee... Me so smart.

Actually, we still don't have enough envelopes & stamps so next week my mommy will be buying them. Once they all are ready, we will either send them out on December or before. So how do you guys like the cards? Heehee, have a great weekend pals!
