I'm going to be applying for the Create-A-Greeting-Card Scholarship and I really want to do a Doberman Pinscher one! Get-well, Wedding, Anniversary, Birthday... Ideas'll definitely help, especially some cute pictures for posing references!

 

Here are some that I thought up myself:

Get Well- The dobie rainbow snuggled together under a blanket, one with an ice-pack and thermometer, one with wrapped ears while the other two are keepin' them company.

Wedding- A red and black with a Dalmatians 101 the Movie wedding thing going on ;P

Birthday- A red doberman with a party hat hiding on a couch of the same color (so, really, a chocolate color) that says, "Don't hide..." and in the inside, says, "It's your birthday!" and a little greeting below it. OR a festive dobe

Christmas- A toppled over box with a ribbon trailing on the cover, and on the inside, a cute dobie pup pulling the ribbon along. OR A pack of Dobes dressed as reindeer tied to a sled

Easter- Dobes dressed as bunnies or snuggling with a bunny/easter animal OR an Angel Doberman resting on the lap of the Risen Jesus Christ or something similar (my mom said it would be weird. I think it's cute LOL)

 

I doubt some of these would work since it's only going to be a cover-page illustration.

What other ideas can y'all think of? :) ? Feel free to post pictures of your dogs :D photobucket or that other one that the whole group has access to... what was it called? I forgot LOL.

P.S. Zelda's doing great. Getting along well with the new male that we rescued, the other dogs are getting along with him as well. Zelda's excited jumping became a little worse and I'm trying to work at it. Debating on guilt-tripping my parents into getting her to obedience classes (along with Sophia, Ashe and Killer--the new dog. He's a sweetie).

Good to hear from you Erika.. I think about you often and am always happy to see your posts.
I love your idea about your greeting cards.. would you do reds blacks and ( maybe a fawn or two??)

You would be a great ambassador for the breed by representing Dobermans in the gentle light that you've described

Good luck

Kate and Sofia

I'll put in a few fawns and blues when I get more ideas, Kate! Maybe star La Diva herself in a plain greeting card :P

nice!  and good luck to you - I'm not very creative but how about

 

wedding - 2 doberman's getting married dressed in a tux and the other a white outfit like a dress type thing. 

 

birthdays - puppies are always good for birthday stuff as it implies getting older.  Maybe a puppy in a birthday hat sitting in front of a cake with candles.  Or a person with a cake and the doberman stealing the age or the candles off it.
