Today is Challenge Day At Bugaboo

It is Saturday and that means it is time for a Challenge Today at Bugaboo. Since we are in the Dog Days Of Summer right now here in the U.S. we thought it would be fun to have you all let us see what that Sentiment Means To You. So the Challenge is to make a card or project using Neutral colors plus One other color and expressing what the Dog Days Of Summer means to you.
The winners will receive: 1st place- 7 free digis of your choice
2nd place-4 free digis
3rd place-2 free digis. As always you can find all the official rules at the Bugaboo Challenge Blog.
For mu first card I did this adorable Dog in the convertable. This is from the Summer Dogs digi images. The papers are from the new line at Stampin Up! as is the lace trim.
I think this best describes what I think of when I hear the phrase Dog Days of Summer. Again the images are from the Summer Dog Digis and how cute are those buttons and what about the card itself. I did this for a challenge at Dare You 2 Digi Stamp this week which is to make a shaped card and when I thought about that I thought big round Sun shape. I used one of the Tim Holtz embossing plates for the texture and then sponged on red ink.
And on the inside we have a Dog on a beach. Sand is made using Tim Holtz Distress embossing powder. I just had to throw that 108 in there because that is what it was in my backyard the other day.

This week is also special at Bugaboo because we have a Sponsor
You just have to check out Stampin Dragon Designs. You will also have a chance to win some images from them.
So join us for the Challenge this week at Bugaboo.

I just had to make a card using this wonderful Dragon from Stampin Dragon and combining it with the Bugaboo image. How cute.

Have a great weekend everyone.
