Clearly Digi Stamps Blog Hop- Sorry For The Delay

I just wanted to say a big sorry to all of those who may have dropped by earlier for this Blog Hop post and found that it wasn't here. I had some problems with scheduling and had to retake a picture. So sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused anyone.  So sorry Linda. 

Well, it's the 3rd Sunday of the month, which also makes it our blog hop day! Make sure to play along for your chance to win some really amazing digi stamps. There are many to choose from. Each month we will have a theme which each Design Team member is challenged to interpret any way they like. 
August Theme

Cats VS. Dogs

And here is my take on this Challenge.

I decided to add googly eyes to this guy to help bring a smile to the recipient because everyone needs some cheering up from time to time. Lol.

Card Supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Coloring Mediums: water color pencils
Stamps:  Spike The Dog/Laurie Wilson
Adhesives: ATG gun, Pop Dots
Ribbon: Baker's Twine/Maraschino

I used this amazing set called Mr.Spike by Laurie Wilson.

This card is being submitted to the following challenges:
Drunken Stampers - W -  Twine
Send a Smile for Kids - 2W, 2E -  (W1 of 2) Animal Cards 4 kids
Word Play Saturday - M, E4 (1 per wk) (2nd Sat)   Childhood
Art Impressions Stamps  Challenge #116 For The Cats & Dogs

There will be a prize each month!  Each DT member is showcasing a digital image, and you could win that image! There will be a winner from each participating DT member's blog.
