Hot Diggity Dog!

Hot Diggity Dog!  I love this stamp set!  Being the dog-lover I am, I can never resist a doggy stamp! For today's card, I used the stamp set, Hot Diggity Dog (I just love sayin' it - tee hee).

Card Inspired by Ann Clemmer

This set comes with several dog images and sentiments, so you can use for birthday cards, sympathy, love, friend, etc.  A good one to have on hand for sure! I offered this card at a recent Card Buffet Class and the stampers loved it :)


After stamping the dog image in Staz On Black Ink, I colored his nose with my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker and striped his coat in a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.  The ribbon is our 1/4" Cotton Ribbon - love it!
