"In the DOGHOUSE" at Mo's

Happy Thursday . . . and welcome, once again, to my little corner of the "blogging" world! I've been spending lots of time indoors in my air conditioned studio (it's still crazy hot outside)! And I had such fun with my little "creation" for this week's challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! The challenge theme this week is . . .


Now I wasn't quite sure if I was going to go with a cute "dog" image, or one of the adorable Mo images depicting someone in trouble! In the end, I went with a dog image . . . here it is . . . what'cha think?
OK . . . so here's the deal . . . I decided that, since our grandson's 8th birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, I'd make him something to tuck in with his other birthday goodies! Brody's dad (my eldest son, Andy) was in the Navy once upon a time . . . and they now have a big golden dog (mixed pedigree, I'm pretty sure! hehe!)! Anyway, I thought Brody could use this birthday card as a hanger for his bedroom door! And, I tell ya, with Mo's cute image and and a sketchy idea in my mind, this just sort of fell together! Voila! Here's a close-up . . .
This little darlin' is called "Out There" and is available HERE in Mo's online store. Here's a "full frontal" view . . .
