As some of you know, my lil Nicky was Prairie Fairy's April Jr. Guest!
And, unfortunately, halfway through, he got sick and then once he was better, he had a lot of schoolwork to catch up on, so he was not able to participate in the last few challenges...
But he wanted to create something to share with you today using "Beggin", the cutest dog ever!
And that's because he looks so much like my sister's dog,
Riley James ;)

Also, I have to let you know that Nicky wanted to also use a stick on his card, but had no luck in finding the "perfect kind of stick" for this lil cutie to play fetch with!!! LOL!

Here's Nicky's card...

Thank you so much Roberta for having Nicky and myself be a part of your Design Team!!!
We will miss you and all of our Prairie Fairy friends!!!
But I'm sure that we will be seing each other around in blogland ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by and hopping with us :)
