My Best Friend

OMG, it is so darn HOT. Going up to 90 today and humid.............yikes. Help, I'm melting......

Today's card is for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. The Challenge this time was to make a shaped card. I had this stamp of a doghouse for years and never used it. So today was the day!

Pretty simple, added the Magnolia stamps, sizzix dies of leaves and corner. The inside sentiment which I didn't photograph says "My dog isn't spoiled, I'm just well trained". I colored with Copics and Tombow Markers.
Update on the pond. We have received and installed a pond scarecrow, which is motion sensative and makes a noise and shoots three burst of water in the direction of the detection.
And it works!!, as I was trying to feed the remaining 7 fish that escaped the Blue Heron's belly today, I set it off and got sprayed. The dog is terrified to walk in the yard and has to be coaxed off the patio for now, but is getting better. No sightings in a few days, but hoping that this thing will do the trick. The idea is that it will give up being scared and just not bother. Hoping it does the job!!!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great Wednesday. Until later...................
