Joanne (jojot) was the hostess this week for the Stampin'B's DT Blog Challenge. She wanted us to make a card in honor of the "dog days of summer." I’ve always wondered why August’s “dog days” were called that – so I looked it up. It has to do with Sirius, the Dog Star, and its conjunction with the sun during the hot days of July and August. But I digress!
I made a monochromatic card, using several images from Mark’s Finest Papers set, More of Speedy the Cat’s Friends, creating both the main image and the DP panels behind it. The dog is colored with Copic markers in various shades of brown.

One of the Stampin'B's, Brenda (benzi on SCS), mentioned that perhaps I should show some of my collections on my blog. Today's challenge gave me the opportunity to show one of my salt and pepper shaker sets. A good friend of mine gave me these cute little doggies.
