Dog (?) Days

          I know August is typically what we call the Dog Days of summer but sometimes those "dog" days turn into cat or bird days as well.  Just see below for an example in this delightful Mo's Digital Pencil image.  I know I usually do cat images but that's because my fur babies get so upset when I feature some other animal, but this time I think I can get away with it since there IS a cat in the image. :-D

I pulled my colors from the tic tac toe board at
Color My Heart Color Dare - 
the main ones from the diagonal top left to bottom right -
plus mink & almond (cat's fur), red (in the dog's collar), 
toffee (bird's feather's) & tangerine (bird's beak.)
I think all I missed was the Glacier Blue.  :-D
All 3 of the diagonal colors are in the dp and the image has both 
green and yellow with neutrals of black and white.

Colored w/ ProMarkers & pencil
Image & frame cut & embossed w/ Tonic Studios dies
Paper is a scrap from the basket
2 shades of green CS

     That's all for today but I'll be back tomorrow with another card.  Hope you'll stop by then, too.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
