Simon Says: It's A Dogs Life














Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week we are challenging you to make something with man's best friend in mind

It's A Dogs Life

Ooh I love this challenge! Just add a pup onto your project and honour man's best friend :-)

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by to see what the fabulous Wanda and the team made!

I made a Halloween card using an adorable Simon's Exclusive Picture Book Labrador Die.to make a pair of Trick or Treat Pups.

My little Jessie is the one on the left and her buddy Charlie is on the right, he has gone to live in the UK now so we don't get to see him IRL anymore, but I am sure if he was here he would be taking Jessie trick or treating ;-) 


For the background I used a Tim Holtz Mixed Media 3 Die for the brick wall. I inked the 'grouting'with Pumice Stone ink and I coloured the bricks with Fired Brick Distress Oxide and then spritzed with shimmer.

I am addicted to adding Rusting Powder to the gate and fence,, looks fab don't you think!


and I finished the inside 



Thanks for looking!

I will be heading off for a trip to S. America tomorrow so I will see ya'll when I get back! :-)

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

Oh, Lols! The way you made the bakground is just amazing and so much real! I love the bricks a lot, hard to believe it's made with this die! Fabulous idea of painting them with color and left the rest in grey! I'm impressed! I love your couple of doggies and the spooky fence too. Hugs, Marzena

This is so clever, Lols! I especially enjoyed seeing the two variations of the same dog. What a tribute to your makeover skills! I love the inside, too! No lack of geniusness here, that's for sure.
