He joined me for awhile outside this morning while I worked in the flower beds. Of course, I grabbed the camera before I got too hot and sweaty!
Isn't he irresistible?
Now you may ask what does Ziggy have to do with creativity? After all, this blog is supposed to be "a gathering place for all things creative!" Well, I do have the answer for that! Ziggy was the inspiration for a card I made. It was the first card I ever sent to a card magazine for publication - I was absolutely thrilled to see it published (June/July 2006 edition of Simply Sentiments). Since I sent in a self-addressed stamped envelope when I mailed it in, I did get the card back. I framed it and it is now proudly displayed in my home.
Aptly enough, the greeting on the card is "I Pug You." Did you notice that the "u" in pug has a heart background? The pug stamp is from The Angel Company, although it is now retired. I embossed the image in black and then used water color crayons for the coloring. The words are from a Sizzix alphabet. Notice the corner punches and the skinny black lines that intersect at each corner punch. Well, those skinny black lines are one of my favorite embellishments - scrappers floss!
Have you created something with a dog theme - a card, a scrapbook page, a pendant, a dog collar, a purse or tote, a photo, or whatever? If you would like to share and if you would like to be featured on my blog, just leave a comment below along with a link to your blog or ETSY (or other online) store to your item. I will post a blog with all submissions, create a poll, and whoever gets the most votes will be featured here! Not only will I blog about the winner's handmade passions, but I will also post your avatar and/or your winning entry right where my avatar is today (the upper right hand corner of the blog!) for a week! Please leave your links below by the end of the day on Wednesday June 2.
Can't wait to see your dog-themed handmade creations!
Thanks for stopping by...
I love a dog. He does nothing for political reasons.
