Dog Days of Summer

Hello there! I am so confused on the days lately---all I know is that my two oldest go back to school on Monday and we are getting all ready for that.

I created this card for the Dirty Dozen Alumni challenge on Splitcoaststampers.
Valerie came up with this month's theme -- the Dog Days of Summer.
Required Element: Dog images or sentiments and heat of summer color scheme (so think orange, red, mustard, etc.)
Restricted Element: Flock, or any fuzzy type embellishment
You can view all the cards for this challenge HERE.

Here is my card: I used Pat the Dog from Our Craft Lounge for my dog. I made sure to have a big ole sun ('cause it is HOT in Texas during the Dog Days of Summer.)

The base of this card (yellow polkadots) is from a dollar pack of notecards from Michael's. I accented it with some other designer paper with some "summery" colors.

What a fun challenge ----->I am now ready to say goodbye to the Dog Days of Summer. Bring on the Fall!

Materials used: Stamps-Pat the Dog (Our Craft Lounge); Memento black ink; Copic markers; notecard (Michael's); designer paper-Black Orchid (SEI); Big Kids (Making Memories); ribbon-pumpkin pie stripe (SU!), yellow (May Arts); sun sticker (Creative Memories); slit punch (SU!).

REMEMBER: Check out the Totally Twilight Challenge HERE! Come and play along!!
Thanks for stopping by!

What a cheery card!! (as today is the first day of school for my kiddos, my first thought was this would make a great little card to send them off to a new year!)
