The Dog days of Summer

 There has been a heatwave in the bay area and it was just way too hot to do anything outside so much of Fourth of July weekend as spent inside allowing me time to do some catch-up stampin.  One of my boys are so into dogs, I thought this was just so "him".  Very simple card.  Take a Soft Suede basecard and diecut a circle larger than 2 1/2 inches.  Stamp the image onto a verfy vanilla CS with soft suede ink then use crumbcake marker to color in the eye and buttock of dog.  Punch it out with 2 1/2 in circle punch and mount with dimensionals on the inside of the card.  Stamp the sentiment on the inside using Soft Suede - the little paw print is from the retired "C is for cat" set.  Tie a 7/16 in natural trim  around the card as shown. 
I punched the bone using the 4 sided flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack.  You have to cut a piece of paper like a barbell and then run it through the punch one side at a time but it was just perfect size.  I guess you could use a heart punch too but the heart from the owl is smalle enough to use it for something this size.  Wrap the bone with linen thread and mount it with dimensional cut in half to make it dangle.
