SoSS #66 - H is for Hounds

Poor old Edna's really gone to the dogs this week...and she's taken the sisterhood with her!

Break out yer pooches and pups...H is for Hounds!!

You would think a "dog person" would have more than three dog stamps...but nope...I don't.

Paper Smooches are my go to animal stamps, they are so flippin cute!!

Shite I used to make this card:

  • White cardstock (Fireworx)
  • Black cardstock (Recollections)
  • Slang Gang stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Chubby Chums stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Sentiment Sampler stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Tuxedo Black ink (Memento)
  • Whisper White ink (SU)
  • Picked Raspberry distress marker (Tim Holtz)
How can I do a hound challenge without showing off the hound of my life??
His name is Mister. 
He is an Instagram superstar and even has his own hashtags (I kid you not) #callmemister #misterofinstagram

Mister was rescued on day three from a three day kill shelter in Georgia by Niagara Dog Rescue.
We adopted him last summer.

Super cute right? 
Like so many of us, Mister has to depend on his cuteness to get by because he is NOT very brave and he's really NOT a very good hound.
What kind of hound can't sniff out a cookie at ten paces???

We think he's (at least mostly) a black and tan Austrian hound.
Google that, it totally looks like him!

To his credit, he is REALLY REALLY good at finding dead things, or parts of dead things in the garden.
Ya, that's a treat.

Come on now...that face though???

OK enough crazy dog lady, back to the challenge.

Be sure to check out the SoSS BLOG for all the details on the H is for Hounds challenge. As always, we would love for you to play along with us!

While you are there please share some crafty lovin' with the rest of the sisterhood.

Until next time...

Great card, I love that stamp too! Mister is a beauty and having once had a cat that brought me 'gifts' I know there is nothing like an oozing, dead thing to brighten your day! Jo x

Fab card, love the sentiment and how you placed the dog pics at different angles, great picture of Mister so glad you rescued him. OCAR brings dogs from Georgia too, they are all adopted now.

Brilliant card, but I'm sorry, it's been totally eclipsed by the true star of the show, Mister. I might have to head over to Instagram and double tap on him!

Seriously, how is it possible that I have more dog stamps than you? There is something very wrong here. :D Doesn't matter though, since this one's so much fun. Mister is definitely a cutie. :)
