What's up?

     Ah good times during hot summer days.  I think I might think twice about sharing my pool with the pooch though.  Wet dog smell--YUCK!  LOL  Since this is obviously a boy, who we all know couldn't care less about what they smell like, I'm sure he doesn't mind a bit.
     Our challenge this week at The Kraft Journal is "Good Ole Summertime".  I've started my card with a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and then added lots of layers of bright MME DP's.  One of the panels is wrapped with Orange Baker's Twine and a button and the other with Canvas Fringe Ribbon.  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is colored with Copics.  I've added Glossy Accents to his swimming goggles and the water.
     We'd love to have you join in this weeks challenge.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sentimental Sundays--summer fun + sentiment
Sweet Stampin'--summer fun
Fussy and Fancy--boy attitude
Polka Doodles--summer scene
Totally Papercrafts--it's raining cats and dogs
Charisma Cardz--male cards

Another FUN card, Sweetie! aaahhh the dog days of summer. So not my FAvorite season as I hate the heat. But we're thinking of trying to get our rottie Bella into the pool this year. Don't know if she'll go for it & I can do without the wet dog smell.......I agree.......YUCK! LOL But one thing about a short hair dog is they dry off fast. Not like our Golden Retriever with all that hair.

Anywho.......back to your card.....LOL Your coloring is great. Love the pretty blue you used on the pool. The baker's twine & button are a cool touch. Love the whole BOYish feel to this card. Nicely done, GF!
Happy Huggies ~
