The Dog Days of Summer...

Good morning Stampers,
I can't believe that we are in the middle of August already.  Whew - Summer has sure gone by fast this year.  Pretty much does every year.  Over at Heart 2 Heart Blog this we they are having a Dog Days of Summer Challenge.  You can make anything that you want card, scrapbook page, papercraft item with an animal theme.  Extra credit is given if it includes a dog.

Here is my card:

I used the new Flirty paper pack from the new catalog.  I thought the bright colors reminded me of the beach.  For the dog and the Hello sentiment I used A Bow Wow stamp set A1126 only $6.95 love that doggie.  If you saw the first post I changed the coloring of the image.  I love it now.  I used the watercolor brush and Bamboo for the dog and goldrush for the crab.  I paper pieced the bow using the flirty raspberry card stock.  If I had the new cobic-like markers I would have used that, but they are on my wish list!  For the little crab friend I used the Under the Sea stamp set C1500.  Both sets are from the spring/summer idea book and are still available to order.  I added a little pearl to the card front also.  I also went back and added some liquid glass to the eyes and nose.  Much better now!

I hope that you are out enjoying the last weeks of summer - It's going to be getting HOT here in Oregon!
