Whimsical Pet Shop, Awning Card Image

Hi there!

I have another Digi image today for the Awning Card I posted on this blog HERE (with some instruction and a video link). But first...

In that post I asked if you had any ideas which other images would work with this particular card, and you  had lots of suggestions!! Here's what you said:

Shoe Store
Ice Cream Parlor
Flower Shop
Pet Shop
Hot Dog Stand
Fruit/Veggie Stand
Dress Shop/Purses, Yarn
Antique Shop
Coffee Shop
Tool Store
French Boutique
Toy Shop

-And Jean (from the comments) said she made one with a picture of a friends' cat looking out the window for a friend who was in the hospital. The sentiment on the front read- 'Just watchin' out the window,' on the inside-'for you to come home.' How creative is that?!!!

I thought I'd share all your suggestions because I'm sure it'll inspire! Thanks so much!!

Okay, onto the Whimsical Pet Shop Digi for an Awning Card.

I was hoping that I'd have time to make another image for the awning card, but I just didn't get to it. So I thought I'd separate the fish and cat for a single image on a card instead.

I wish I had some sentiments made up for you, but I just didn't get a chance! :-( 
If you happen to have any good suggestions for sentiments that would work with these digi's, let me know. I'll try and do some up for you and post them later.

Here are some more images that'll work with the Awning Card

Anyhow...hope you enjoy these and thanks for visiting!
