Outlines Monday--Christmas in July! Bah Humpug!!!


 So glad you stopped in today  to see my Outlines Monday Challenge Christmas in July card!


Pugs??? Who doesn't love a pug?  My first dog was a pug and he was so lovable. Although he has been gone for years, I still have two pug grand-doggies! Sophie is a very light colored pug and Bud is darker, so I guess this card  is fashioned after our little naughty Sophie dog!


I colored up this cute Holiday Pooch and then added the glittered hat and ornament on dimensionals. I also added some wonderful Viva Pearl Pen dots for some creamy shine! These pens are really cool and come in many colors! I also added a small line under "Sophie" to "ground" her a little. If you have never tried a copic multi-liner, you must. I use mine all the time!


I did manage to cut into some of my very favorite DP ever for this creation. I love this wassail DP...such rich colors! Trying to change my paper hoarding ways I tell ya!



Please check out what the rest of the team has made for you today!  
Kecia, Jenny, Jeanne, Lisa,  Sandy and Robin !
