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!
