Dapper Dog



I already know my blog has "gone to the dogs", but here's another dog stamp!  Groan!  What's really bad is that my new goodies included not only this stamp set but also another one with dogs!  Double groan, right!  This is from a stamp set that I recently got from Simon Says Stamp and it really is a cutie.  The sentiment is from The Alley Way Stamps and I used some paper from Linen Closet paper pack by DCWV.

This card was given to my husband yesterday "just because".  I've never in my life ever known Jim to wear anything but Wrangler jeans, boots, etc.  It's been so hot here the last couple of years I finally convinced him to at least get one pair of shorts.  Well, he bought a pair but won't wear them any where out in public AT ALL!  That's probably a good thing though because he'd been wearing the shorts (plaid) with a striped shirt!!!!  To top it off, he'd put on his tennis shoes (which is amazing) and then grab a pair of white socks that go all the way up to his knees almost!!! LOL!!  The other day I again convinced him to get a pair of sandals......now this is REALLY different for him.  He's almost getting used to the sandals, but again pairs them with those white socks!  Thank GOODNESS he doesn't go out in public this way! LOL!

I'll enter this in the challenges at Less is More (theme - dogs or cats), Pinspiration Challenges (inspiration photo), and Kaboodles Doodles (stripes or circles).

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

Love this card Lynn! It just makes me smile and the sentiment is perfect.
Love the hubs story too. I remember trying to get mine into some walking shorts and it only happened the one time. Those skinny white legs with the socks up to his knees was just too much of a fashion faux paux. He did go out in public and I think it was more to shut me up than anything else. Worked too because I never mentioned shorts again!

I'm loving the dog stamps you're using! THey are all so cute. Love the bit of blue peeking out at the bottom of sentiment panel too.

Your hubster sounds zactly like my old-school hubby too! Shorts are nixed, but he will wear them around the house and always with those knee-high white socks! Can't convince him to buy sandals yet though, so you're one step ahead of me. And they said women are vain!? LOL
You know I seriously love this card with those little dogs! Adorable creation! I just finished making a card with the same paper pack - GMTA!

Bonnie said...

LOL! He sounds like my hubby except that he thinks nothing of going out in public like that if I don't catch him first! Love the card! Especially love the one with the hat and shades! Can't wait to see the rest of the dogs!

Poor Jim - sounds like my DH :-) I have given up - the biggest change (and then he has to be desperate) is now only a short sleeved shirt.......
Love the card BTW.

Haha, those white socks to his knees. I have seen many men like that lol.
Your card is super cute, Lynn. I like the doggie with the shirt on - very Hawain. The blue looks awesome with the kraft.
Love,

I really think we all married the same fellow, and mine is named Jim, also. Hmmmm.... Mine has legs that have never seen the light of day. I actually embarrassed him into buying a pair of boat shoes to go with the shorts. Not that he will wear them, now mind you!

Anyhow, your pups are indeed dapper! Great creation, Lynn

Tee Hee! Lynn, those dogs are wonderful and what a great card!

Alissa said...

I'm a sucker for dogs anyways, but this dog made me LOL. Love the little Hawaiian shirt, wonder if I can get my dogs one of those!

You be nice to Jim! :)

Chrissie said...

We're a little short on white space on this card Lynn, but the design is nice and simple.
Great images.
Thanks so much for joining us.

Now your husband sounds like my 14 year old! He honestly doesn't give a hoot about anything but being comfortable...and I've given up ;)
I love all the doggies, so bark away :) That little guy in his Hawaiian shirt rocks! Can't wait to see the other new pups :)

Laura said...

MaryH said...

What a pair of fashionistas! Adorable...loved your background story too. With the heat I expect we shall see this summer, your DH better get used to those shorts. It will be way too hot for jeans. Loved the layout you used on this one, and the pretty blues of your papers. TFS

LOL! I think you need to share a pic of Jim in his summer duds! We love to tease my dad about one of the pictures from their honeymoon. He's wearing RED socks with sandals...in public!

Personally, I love your doggy cards and these two guys are so sweet!
