Dog Days

What a beautiful sunny day!
My irises started blooming today and we still have Bradford Pears blooming.  I think the birds must have spread some phlox seeds around because it is all over the place and we didn't have it last year, nor did I plant it!  It is beautiful and smells even better.  Even Sadie stops to smell it when we take our walks!

I have a monochrome card today using the sketch over at Come & Get It.  I was informed this morning that our 4-legged furry ones are almost devoid of their favorite Sunday treat - Merrick Wishbones (aka beef tendons).  So my job was to order some more.  After that, I needed to work on the rescue database so that we can acknowledge our recent donors on our website.  So then when I entered my art room, I definitely had doggy on the brain.  Here's what I came up with:

I used a set from Inkadinkado and then added a Lasting Impressions sentiment.  Everything is stamped with Versafine Black Onyx.  I used punches to make my squares and for the pawprint.  Ribbon is from stash.  

I am also entering the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - animals
