Been There, Dug That!

Today's post is a little bitter-sweet.  This will be my last post for Top Dog Dies.  I knew that stepping down from this Design Team was the right thing to do because school is starting, and my life will be busy with homeschooling this year (as Andrew gets older, and classes get more difficult).  I will miss this talented group of crafters, and playing with these fun die-cuts.  I hope that you will stop by from time to time to see their new releases.  I'm sure they will have some great new products that you won't want to miss, as well as fun blog hops and give-aways.  You can always check out the fun and see what' new on the Top Dog Dies Blog.
My card was created with some Echo Park patterned papers and stickers, a Freckled Fawn wood piece (noted), a PTI fence die, a MFP stamp, a butterfly punch, and a few dies from the adorable new Top Dog Dies Dog Days #2 Set.  I gave the Scottie Dog a googly eye for fun.  The Top Dog Dies Dog Days #2 Die Set has an adorable Poodle as well as this cute Scottie.

Crafts 4 Eternity Challenge Blog - Challenge #191 - Tic Tac Toe - I followed the middle row - Use a Punch/Use The Color Blue/Use Some Die-Cuts (complete supply list above)

Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutations Challenge - #112 - Your Favorite Subject in School - I could go a couple different ways with this one.  First, my very favorite class was always ART, and I certainly used my "art skills" on this one.  But also, I actually took a class in Dog Grooming which I LOVED, and it saves me money with our family dog, a Miniature Schnauzer.  I used a Mark's Finest Papers stamp on this project (the sentiment - "Been There, Dug That" from the MFP "Old Dogs" set.
I'm so grateful for your visit today.
