Hey stampy friends!  I'm chuffed to be playing along with the Festive Friday challenge today.

I was sad to have missed playing in the previous challenge for International Owl Awareness Day, I have some cool owl stamps that would have been perfect for it.  So I can't let International Dog Day pass me by!  I dug out a very old stamp set for this one:

Meet one of the pups from Ruff Day!  I've had this stamp set in my stash since 2007.  I paired it with the Playful Pets DSP, which coordinates with the Pampered Pets stamp set but I had somehow never cut into it after I bought it.  Anyway, from the Festive Friday challenge, I incorporated a dog, bones, paw prints, spots, and neutral colors (with a bit of Real Red thrown in).

And there's the inside of the card, you know I love a silly pun!  This one is already in the mail to my friend Krissy, who just might be even more dog-crazy than I am.  I didn't think that was possible until I met her ; )  We took a weekend trip to Paris together in March and it was almost a contest to see who could point out the most dogs everywhere we went.

I'm also entering this at the Retro Rubber challenge:

As I said, my stamp set is FIFTEEN years old, so very retro ; )  I'm always willing to ink up an old stamp set!

Cheers, y'all!
