In the Dog House

Happy Monday!  This is Cheryl from Shestamps.
There is something about this little pup in his dog house that makes me smile. I have had him for a while and I don’t know why I haven’t inked him up before now. Well, I guess now is as good as a time as any.
2013-04-15 GI Dog Hello WM_thumb[1]
I really love all the fun Polaroid frames that are out right now. I have to admit, I am too cheap to buy one so I decided to experiment with creating my own Polaroid frame with supplies that I had on hand. This one was created by using a square die and a rectangle die (both from Spellbinders). If you don’t have the dies, I’m sure you could mark it off on the back side of the paper and cut it out using your paper trimmer.
Don’t forget you have time to join in the April challenge at the Great Impressions Stamps blog. Our challenge is all about polka dots and/or pastel colors. You can find the details on the post HERE.
I hope you have a fabulous week! Thank you for stopping by!
