It's blog hopping time with the OSAT group. I know I've been a little slack in the blogging. Lots of things going on and will update about all that in another post, but right now I need to share with you my projects for the August Hop.......Dog Days of Summer! Dog days of summer means to me that they are long, hot, lazy days and all a person feels like doing is lying down, maybe sip a drink and just be lazy like a dog. My card gives that feel, I think. I didn't put a sentiment on it, that may come later when I use it, but for now it's just a lazy dog day of summer card.
I used the Sitting Here stamp set along with some pieces/parts from Kinda Eclectic and Sheltering Tree. I made my porch using the Hardwood background and punched it out with the new Classic Label Punch. After the Word Window punch was retired I was devastated because I used that one so much, but the Classic Label is even better. You will notice all the little details on the card......yeah they were a little fussy, but it's the therapy of fussy that I needed at the time I was making it. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the sun for a little pop and sponged the background with what else, but Soft Sky. This card looks much better IRL. I guess I need to do some adjustments to my photo area. I need better lighting I think.
Here is a picture of Grammy's Captain, my Captain. This was the last time he was here in July. His mom wanted to take him upstairs to bed and that's when he decided to jump up on Grammy and Gramp's bed. He seemed to be saying I'll stay here mom. I like Grammy and Gramps bed. He is only 7 months old and such a sweetheart. He has a lot of energy and wears me out, but we love him. We sure miss having a dog in the house, but visits from Captain are good enough for now. I think we're too old to start the doggy thing again and will stick to just our kitty cat. Sabby (the kitty cat) agrees. LOL! He hides for the weekend when Captain and his mommy come visit.
Well I hope you enjoyed your nice little visit here and you continue to hop onto the ever talented Wynne Grob's blog.
