Hello Monday, my friends! Our challenge this week is It's a Dog's Life, how fun is that!
It got me thinking of our dog Jasper, who loved to run after the cats and chase them, and as far as I know only caught up with one once - that was when we found the claw in his eyebrow...ouch!
It's not all fun and games and laying around, but also think about all the working dogs out there like the sheep dogs and police dogs. I can see a lot of ways to interpret our challenge, and I am interested in your take on it, so please share with us!
We all have friends who have a rough day, so I made my card with that in mind.
It's a Ruff Day for this trio of plaid pups who were chasing the calico cat. The cat leaped up onto the hot air balloon and escaped from the pups. Oh boy, are they frustrated now!
I used my new Tim Holtz Stamping Platform (I love this! The images stamp so well using it.) to stamp several plaid pups and a cat and the hot air balloon. I fussy cut the critters out.
Oranges and yellows for the hot air balloon...
Blues for the card...making it look like a sky.
By adding the antique linen, it began to look more like a sky with clouds.
Two pups went on the inside...
I stamped a few more details into the background with the star and circle, the ball of yarn dropping down to tease the pups, and the pennant.
Oh yes, these pups are having a Ruff Day!
