Dog-gone It!


How can you not love this puppy, big slobbery thing that he is!! I was sent this image from one of my Twisted Sisters - Dawn (aka flowergal36 - gotta love those girls) and I have been waiting for the right card to make with it!!! So when this weeks Crafty Creations Challenge had the theme of chocolate....in whatever way we want...I knew this was the card I was going to make in chocolate colours!!!! YUMBLY!!! It is also for the CCEE Stampers Challenge where the Guest Hostess for this month is 'imamuttnut'...so...you guessed it, we have to show a dog on the card!

I used chalks to colour him and added Dimensional Magic to his big wet nose and tongue (I figured that thing just had to be wet and dripping) with a touch of Kindy Glitz to the drool coming off him - those of us with dogs know that this image is closer to the truth than we like to admit! LOL!. I paper pierced the edges and sponged, then layered it on Argyle embossed CS. I made my own DP with those little paws ALL over it and added the sentiment...I have to add at this point that I am often card making LONG after everyone has gone to bed - so I had to write the sentiment by hand as the printer is in our room....I didn't want to 'blow my cover' and let DH know EXACTLY what time I was still up and cardmaking!! LOL!! For a final touch I added the paw print....

Personally, I love this sentiment, it is so true...it's just another version of 'some days are diamonds, some are stone' and isn't that the TRUTH!!! LOL!! Thank you for calling in, hopefully you leave me a note, so I know you have been - it makes my day to know you stopped by! I am hoping that today you are NOT the hydrant (I didn't want to say 'you are the dog' it soesn't quite sound right! LOL! God bless you!
