{SSSC87 & CC Act 50} Hot Doggie!

Hot Diggity Dog!  Two of my favorite challenges!

When I saw these beautiful fall colors for Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge, I immediately thought of creating an autumn leaf card.  But, as you can see, that didn't exactly happen.  I needed a thank you card and this cute little doggie was out on my stamping table wanting some love.  ♥

Today's terrific sketch is by Karen at The Sweetest Thing.  I turned it to make it work with my image and used the scalloped circle instead of the small square.

It's hard to believe we're into October already!  This year is just flying by and it seems I have so many more card ideas and stamps than I have time!  Can you relate to that?!   Yes, I know you all can.   : )

Thanks so much for blogging by!  Have a wonderful week, my friends!
