June-one for the Pup

It is time for the June Dazzlers post, and our hostess for this month is Darlene.  I loved this kit and had a blast creating this card!


Dog & paw print stamps: Inkadinkado
Sentiment: Hero Arts "Be the Person"
Papers: Paper Studio, Multicolored Dog Paws, Red Burlap and Masculine Stripe. Green is SU
Plastic dog paws are Paper Studio's Spare Parts, "Knick Knacks"
Buttons from Hobby Lobby, sewing section.

I used the SCS Sketch 597 for the layout for this card. My husband does most of the pet care here. Our dog is getting old and grumpy, and likes him better : )  He is a really good dog- but almost 15.

My childhood pet was a black poodle named ZsaZsu. There were 7 of us kids and she got lots of attention. I do not remember putting her on a leash and walking her like we do with our dog, but we had a huge yard and lots of activity. 

The Dueling Darlings are a group on Splitcoaststampers. We are divided up into the Divas and the Dazzlers. Each group receives a kit, and we all create with a like theme.  Then, we hop to each others blogs to see what everyone has created. The links are on my sidebar- stop on by and see how the other ladies interpreted the theme : )

Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly
