Flannel Friday: Dog’s Colorful Day

There are so many great flannels for this story, but I had to share this one that a coworker of mine made. It’s actually a magnet story. She copied and enlarged the dog from the story, laminated it and put a large magnet on the back, so it would stick to a magnet board. The … Continue reading
