Fido the Dog

Fido in punches!  I am beginning to just love punches.  This dog was made with the Blossom Petal Punch, who would of thought that you could make a dog out of a flower punch!  I think he needs front paws, but was not sure how to make them.  Got the idea for the dog from Blinkin', Thinkin' & Inkin' Blog - she is so creative with punches! 
The slats for the dog house were cut strips and edged on one side and then slightly overlayed on each other.  The Fido name sign was hand cut.  The dog itself was cut out of felt paper, so it has a slight fuzzy texture.  I edged him with a slightly darker ink so his parts would stand out.  Isn't he cute!?
Here is a close up of the bones.  Just two small strips of paper and then sorta rounded in the middle.  Then two small circles on each end to create the bone part.  Isn't that neat?  Saw it on another blog (sorry, can't remember which one!), and they just look like bones.  I just really like how this card came together, makes me smile!

makes me smile too! You could personalize these by changing the name of Fido(which I know you already thought of!) and sell them! ;) As usual, amazing attention to detail with a final beautiful and adorable product!

Your #1 fan!

He does make a person smile. I think he would make a cute get well card.
