Canyon Country Veterinary Coffee Mugs

I didn't do any youtube videos on the mugs I made for the Veterinary Office but here are the pictures. Proceeds are donated to the Vet office.
The images are from the Silhouette Library. Since Silhouette does not allow you to sell anything with their images I'm just going to donate them. I sure wish they would let us sell stuff with their images. They've got some really cute ones.

Thanks for stopping by!
