Dog Candy Bone

Good afternoon, and hope that Monday before Christmas has been a pleasant day, with last minute chores all being done to your satisfaction.

This is another scheduled post. While away, I won't be posting cards (well, none that I'm making anyway). When we travel, I usually take the copic bag (which is a large scrapbook bag that DH bought me years ago, and it's bulky with all the copic wallets inside it). Decided to take the Zig w/color markers along & practice watercoloring too...but not taking other supplies to make cards. I'll try to pop in occasionally with a little post.

OK...here's today's card, which is for DD. She will be getting a 'pretty' card as well, but since she's a big dog lover(and since I can't find greyhounds - which is the breed of choice) - this is just a hound. But cute. Bought the cling rubber at Stampaway last summer, and found that a wood block of this same image lives in the stamp drawer. It's made by another company however. So probably the wood mount will find a new home.



Whipper Snapper Designs red cling Dog Candy Bone - stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, colored with copics, WoS, die cut with S/B Classic Oval. Mat is S/B Crown Ovals, which I'm not certain is still available. It's not a die that I use much, but it seemed to work with this goofy dog's look.

- Background stripe dp is from an old 12x12 Christmas pack - a piece left from another project, and the border stripes were from a recent purchase at Michael's - Recollections 3 for $10. 25 sheets of loose Christmas cardstock. Used a Memory Box set of stitched borders to cut this.

- HLS Mixed Christmas Sentiments  stamped with SU Regal Red, die cut with a S/B label. Called it done!

Enjoy your day, and be safe if you're out shopping. Big Hugs.

Love the Spellbinders Crown Ovals with the bone - the perfect match! He's so cute. I've got a dog lover that would have loved that - should probably have a Christmas Doggy! Enjoy your time in sunny Florida!

A slightly loopy looking pooch who doesn't quite know what to make of the candy striped bone - love it Mary :-) AS you say, the S/B Crown Ovals die cut really works on this one.
Christmas Blessings

Ha ha ha!!! Superfun!!! Adorable big dog, love his cute face! I'm stunned... I have never seen a Dog Candy Bone... In America sells them for dogs at Christmas time or it's only a draw of imagination ?
Anyway, your card is so cute and fun, love the image, thepapers and the design.
Enjoy your holidays, and Merry Christmas!
