Bugaboo Stamps & Catch the Bug: 08/28/2010

A great big THANK YOU to our friends in the UK at Stampin Dragon Designs for sponsoring Catch the Bug's Dog Days of Summer challenge this week with a GC for four free digi stamps to your online store!!! God Save the Queen, Rule, Brittania!, St. George's Cross, and that bit about the sun never setting on the British Empire. . .;)

The Challenge: Make an animal-themed project using neutrals + 1 color and post a link to it on Bugaboo Stamps' challenge blog, Catch the Bug, by 09/04/2010 at 7:00 AM EST to be entered in a random drawing for three digi prize packs - seven, four, or two digital images!

PS. Speaking of dogs, meet our rescue greyhound, Poppy "The Dog" de Guadalupe Springer! Isn't she just the cutest little sugar-booger you've ever seen?!?!? Here she is taking a nappy-poo in her BCB (big comfy bed, which is on Daddy's side of course) with her baby, mandapanda.

Here's a typical conversation between Poppy's Daddy and I. . .

ME: Do you love me?
LANCE: More than anything in the whole world.
ME: More than Poppy?
ME: A lot more?
ME: Uh-huh. . .So, if the house was on fire, and you could only save one of us, who would you choose?
LANCE: Are you conscious or unconscious? I mean, could you walk or even crawl?
ME: What?!?!?
LANCE: Poppy's my baby - She needs me!
ME: Then she'll appreciate that you're sleeping with her tonight!

Supplies: Bugaboo Stamps image, PaperTrey ink card stock, The Paper Company card stock, American Crafts designer paper, Copic markers, Prismacolor markers, Sakura Glaze pen, American Crafts ribbon.

Oh, Rae Anne, you crack me up! You, Lance & Poppy would make great additions to the beer commercial that goes along those lines. :) Love your puppy balloon and the perfect shimmer on his balloon.

Great card today Rae Anne. I love that image. Your dog is too comfy looking in that photo. The conversation sounds like one I might have with my husband. I never knew he could take to a dog the way he has this one.

Cute card! My brother had a rescue greyhound too!!! Her name was, Hotrod (um, my brother kind of likes cars). She loved to run - my brother could not run fast enough to keep up with her, so he had to ride a bike to exercise her.
