Comrade, Friend Buddy, Mate!





I'm delighted to be joining the talented DT at Serendipity Stamps
for a second hop during September.
Each month there's a fun challenge posted on the 
Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog
and this month the theme is "Summer's Last Hurrah!"  I hope you'll pop
over there to check out the creations on this theme
by the talented design team and join the fun!





The design team have the extra challenge of creating a card based on 
one of our own photos - I chose this fun photo of my friend's new puppy,
 Brodie, which I took this summer. I had fun playing with him on the
grass in the sunshine - managed to get a shot without him chewing my shoelaces!
He's part Tibetan Terrier, was born in Donegal, and
he was 8 weeks old when this photo was taken in August.
My card is a thank you for a friend, inspired by not only my shoes, but 
also by the friendship and loyalty that we all love in our furry friends!  
I coloured the shoes from the fabulous Tennis Shoes Cling Set
with copics, stamping one extra shoe so that the image panel would stretch 
across the card a bit further.  I stamped one of the
sentiments from the set multiple times up the side.
I love the Thanks Die which cuts beautifully - I used four die-cuts
and stacked them up for dimension.

Thanks to Mary and the Serendipity DT for inviting me to join them 
this month, it's been an honour and so much fun!   
And thanks for stopping by today!
