Theme: The Dog Days of Summer (click to see this challenge gallery)

Required Element: Dog images or sentiments and heat of summer color scheme (so think orange, red, mustard, etc.)

My dog is from an older SU set, Bow Wow. The sentiment was created with my Karen Foster Snap Stamps. My sun is made with Nesties and SU polka dot ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

This is very creative, Rose Ann. The ribbon for the sun's rays, your use of these particular Spellbinder dies, the designer paper which reminds me of the heat and flames jumping off the surface of the sun. The best part of it is, though, that it looks even better sitting on my dining room secretary. Thank you! You were so sweet to send it!
