This Raining Cats & Dogs card set by Annette is perfect for the pet lover in your circle of family and friends. What a brilliant idea they can use all year round!

"Everyone I know has a pet. So who wouldn’t love to receive a 6-card gift set and matching box adorned with the Raining Cats & Dogs collection? I used exactly one half of the 8 x 8 paper pad, so I can easily whip up a second set of these! The little mixed media boxes are the perfect size for this sweet gift." ~Annette
