You Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog!!

It is Saturday here and I am late for one of my favourite challenges...the Twisted Sister Challenge...but it is still Friday there, just so hopefully I will just squeeze in on time - there is no pressure from them, just myself!! Now there are a couple of good reasons why I am late....the challenge was to make a card and name it by a song title...well...there were three possibilities for this....they are:

1 Puppy Love 2. Paper Roses (a clever suggestion by DH); and 3 You're Nothing But a Hound Dog...

which I have used...but am still torn...so that was a bit of a hold up...but the other reason is that I just couldn't get my head around this card....yesterday we got a phone call from Judy,the lady that bought one of our first puppies, Rosie is about 18 months old now...I hand reared her and her brother...little Rosie is sick and it is terminal...they are not sure how long she has..it could be 6 months, 12 or she could just go in her sleep....I had a little cry and then felt flat all day...but today...I thought I would make this card for Judy, the lady who bought her and loves her dearly....we babysit her (Rosie the puppy NOT Judy) from time to time!!! It is very sad, she is just adorable!! Anyway...enough of that and onto the business side of this card!!

It is also for MojoMonday, I have enjoyed using that layout, it worked well with this image from Jocelyn (aka JoBear2) I lightly sponged around the edges of all layers before mounting it on black. The brads and the sentiment, which is also a brad are from a BLOG CANDY that I won from Kimmie some weeks ago....they work so well with this layout. It also fits a third Challenge...Stamping for the Weekend, which is exactly what I am doing, where the theme is chocolate strawberries YUMBLY, as my DH would say!!! Brown and red are great together....so there you have it...one finished card!!

Thank you for visiting and for your comments...I love knowing that you have been - you make my day!! I hope you are enjoying your weekend and get some 'you' time!! God bless you!!
