Celebrating a Special Day

A really quick card this afternoon to celebrate a very special day!  It's National Dog Day!  Yep!!!  I guess if moms and dads can have a special day, so can our little four legged friends!  So, in honor of all dogs..........

It's all about texture over at the Lawnscaping Challenge so I'll enter this in their challenge.  I used a piece of burlap for the backing and then added a couple of those cute little pups and a bone from Critters in the Dog Park (Lawn Fawn).  The grass die is also from Lawn Fawn and I embossed it with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The sentiment was completed using the stamps and dies from A Birdie Told Me then several sequins added.

I'll also enter this in the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets) where I'm really hoping they still let me in the gates there. 

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

Those pups are so cute against the burlap, Lynn. Great idea to emboss the grass and such wonderful texture! I hope there's a National Cat Day, too. My two felines are already threatening to sue if there isn't one. They've been yammering on about that ever since they first heard it was National Dog Day early this morning. Sigh...

Vivienne Holden said...

Well I reckon you nailed both challenges Lynn! Like the idea of a 'Doggy Day' too.

Oh what a darling card Lynn!! I'm under the same rock as Carol - I had no idea there was such a thing as National Dogs Day - but why not indeed. These chaps look so happy :)

And I would never, ever lock you out of the Playground. People just come and play when they can - it's always lovely to see you!

Hugs, Di xx

Am loving these cute critters, but I especially love the way you've backed them with the textured burlap as they were dancing in the green grass! This one is very special and I hope you let Rambo have a look at it too! TFS & Hugs
