BSS IDEA - Full Boat

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Hope someone is enjoying this scorching HOT weather, because
we sure aren't.  Our dog is long haired and has a thick undercoat,
and does not move from the air conditioning!  Between the electric bill and
the water bill (watering garden and flowers and adding water to the pond
everyday due to evaporation) they will both be whoppers I'm sure.

Fun card this week, and these pups don't seem to mind being out
on the water in their tiny boat enjoying the summer weather!

Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
