Merry Christmas and Happy Howlidays from Chloe & Gracie


Merry Christmas and Happy Howlidays from Chloe and Gracie!


After our Christmas Tree Tailgate & PicnicI realized I had the perfect backdrop and photo setting for Chloe and Gracie to flaunt their plaiditude.


So I had a little fun playing around with PicMonkey to make a Merry Christmas greetings card.


Of course, first your subjects need to cooperate and pose for the camera to take your photo. . .


Which requires a lot of patience, a lot of photos and a lot of treats ;)


 To make a Christmas greetings or Happy Howlidays card in PicMonkeyclick on the “edit a pic” or the edit button at the top of the page. Once you’re in editor, click on “open” and load your photo to edit.


Click on the snowflake on the left hand side for themes. From there I went to Winterland, and choose Winterscapes. Apply the frame of your choice and add your text or greeting message.


Cold Noses and Warm Wishes. . .


Merry Christmas and Happy Howlidays! Love, Chloe & Gracie ♥

    Merry Christmas, Mary, Chloe, and Gracie. You girls are a great team. Sadie sends puppy kisses to all. She would happily share treats and toys if you came for a play date.
    Enjoy your day. It’s balmy here in TX.

    They are so cute, and Happy Howl-a-days to you too. I think it would be hysterical to show some of the ‘outtakes’ of trying to get pictures with dogs…unless they are as well behaved as they are adorable. Grins, Sandi

    Chloe and Gracie are adorable in their plaid! It sounds as though taking photos of furry kids is as difficult as a nearly 3 yr. old Grandson- many, many takes and treats were required here too!! Hope your Christmas was filled with happiness. Thank-you for this delightful post and Happy Howlidays to all of YOU!
