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!

    So glad your little pup has a new home! I like the shopping list . . . our squeaky toys never last for long, last one I bought my pup lasted about two days before it was chewed through. Great card! Thanks for playing along with the Divas in the punch/die challenge.

    Gorgeous card Lisa! He’s too cute. You’ve colored him so nicely. I love the list and the other embellishments. It’s so wonderful to see that you’ve rescued an unloved dog from death’s door. It is sooooo sad to see how people treat the little beauties. If they didn’t want the little sweetie, they shouldn’t have gotten her. She’s adorable. Hugs, djj
