Smile

Hope this cute little Basset hound puts a smile on your face for the weekend!  I think most Bassets are usually more of a white color with brown or dark colored splotches on them.   But, this one is all brown - mainly because I just wanted it to be!  That cute little face kind of contradicts the sentiment that says "You Make Me Smile/Have A Great Day", but just looking at him makes me smile.  I colored the image with Prisma pencils and added a couple of tiny little pearls to the flowers on the hat.  The Night of Navy panel was embossed with the Square Lattice from SU. 

This is for several challenges today.  Rubber Redneck has a color challenge to use Old Olive, Night of Navy, and Daffodil Delight.  At Karen's Doodles the challenge is to "Frame It" (and by the way, this is one of those cute, cute images from Karen's Doodles).  And last by not least, the challenge at Scrapalicious is "Smile"!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  We're just going to have a HOT one!  Yesterday it got up to 105 degrees and today it's suppose to be up to 106.  Now come on, that is just WAY TOO HOT!

Thanks for stopping by...........
