Dogs Days of Summer

     Is this the most adorable image for a summer fun card?  It's from the Dog Days of Summer set at Deedee's Digis.  I'm with these pups on keeping cool.  Our really hot summer temps are setting in this week and my air conditioning has been running for the last 2 days with only a brief shutdown during the coolest hours of the night.  :-D  But the pups look oh, so happy despite summer heat.  Maybe it's all about attitude.


I used the sketch at The Outlawz
but turned it sideways.



     Quick details:  pre-colored image which was matted twice.  Everything has been distressed by sanding and the sentiment is printed with a computer font.  The twine was a scrap which I cut in two in order to tie a double bow.  I found the three little sequins lying on my desk and decided to use them instead of throw them away.  :-D

     Challenges:
Brown Sugar
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards
Fussy and Fancy
Mema's Crafts

Path of Positivity
Paper Girls
Simply Papercraft
Sister Act
Vintage Stamping

     I have an early appointment so must hit the shower and get on my way or I'll be late.  Enjoy your day and Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
