Bow Wow Wow!

Anything Goes this week at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges.To be in for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate for Digi Doodle Shop please visit the challenge site for full details.Don’t forget to take a peek at the DT’s wonderful work!

I’ve wanted to use the sweet little Bootsie from the Ragga Mutts Collectables by Digi Doodle Shop for a while and having recently got a dog from a shelter I thought what better time.He’s based on Judy’s (the owner of Digi Doodle Shop) very own dog and been coloured with ProMarkers. At first I was going to make a card using brown tones and the thought he deserved a much more cheery home.So I settled on these papers.I got the idea to add a shoping list and thought a piece of Papermania Kraft Basics would be just the job.It comes with the lines printed on it.The only downside,of course,is you can see my ‘orrible handwriting : ( This is probably a typical list of what I buy our pampered pooch every week.With the exception of the shampoo.She’d rather not have a bath as she’s scared of water!She’s such a baby but that makes her even more lovable.I finished up with a paperclip that I wouldn’t like to say how long I’ve had and a maxi brad with the greeting stamped on.I love stamping on brads!

Although I haven’t matched the colouring on Bootsie to Socks,our dog,here’s the inspiration:

Posing for the camera!
You did lay this out for me didn’t you?Hmmmn….no.
As you can see she’s NOT allowed on the beds.D’ya think someone should tell her?Oh yeah,we did!
Lazy hound!Mind you if I had a bed as cosy as this I think I would spend most of my day here too.

She was due to be put to sleep because her owners never claimed her and her time was up in the pound.A vet said she shouldn’t be and was she was sent to re-homing shelter.She’d been there a while too 😦 My kids fell in love with her as soon as they met her.She’s so gentle and loving.She absolutely soaks up all the attention and cuddles she gets 🙂

Thanks for looking and putting up with all my doggy pics!

Happy Birthday to Choo!

At AiFactory Challenges were asking you to Use Your Favorite Embellishment.You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday July 6th to upload your project using the link below. You do not have to use an AIF image but we would love it if you did and you get an extra entry. You can find some great images in the store here. Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s fabulous work while you’re there.

For my card I’ve used Toy Train Clipart.As you can see I’ve flipped the image as  I felt it looked better that way.That’s the beauty of digital images.I then decided to coat the image in clear ultra thick embossing enamel.It’s so much easier than using normal embossing powder  as you don’t have to keep layering it up to get the result you want.As for my favorite embellishment…well…it had to be… BUTTONS!Love ’em.I managed to sneak in some baker’s twine.I couldn’t have put them on my card naked!!
