Happy July everyone!!!  Summer is coming on strong here!! Hot Hot Hot!!!  Can't wait for the 'guys' to be done working in the back yard so I can start enjoying the pool!!!  I feel funny being out there while they are working away back there!  So, in the meantime, I've been coloring!

This is a card I sent to my friend's Erin and Lisa who came and adopted Max, now "Archie" from us at the CT Humane Society!  They were thinking about getting a playmate for their dog Kody and I've been telling them about particular dogs I thought would be a good match.  They actually came up to see our 12-year old sweet old man "Bowser", but ended up chosing Max/Archie.

The card is pretty simple.  I stamped the MFT dogs on watercolor paper and used Distress Inks to color in.  I then took a marker and tried some 'flicking' to represent Archie's terrier hair.  How do you like that wobbly sewing??  :)

I initially started the card with the Memory Box heart die.  I cut the brown paper and then glued them down leaving the negative space showing the hearts, but it was a bit boring.  So I die cut the light blue paper and added Stickles to bling it up!

Here are Kody and Archie taking a rest from playing:

And here they are back at it!!!

Congrats to Lisa, Erin, Kody and Max and we're so happy they chose to 'rescue'!!!

Thanks for your visit!

What a cute, cute card. I just love how you did the hearts! The colors and coloring of the sweet little puppies is great. Loving the pics of the dogs playing, they are so cute together. TFS, glad they got adopted to a wonderful home. Stay cool.
