Just a few more hoops…

Hello everyone! And I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend. I did…I finished a project and it is for several challenges.

First and foremost my little creation is for Cards For Men Challenge – Good Luck ChallengeThe Stamping Boutique (I was just selected to be a part of the wonderful and talented design team)  is the sponsor for this challenge.

I chose the Circus dogs illustration because of the dachshunds. I am so in love with these little dogs (and I laughed when I pictured a weenie dog jumping through a hoop). They have such wonderful personalities, very loyal, VERY tenacious, and just a lot of fun. We have one who is now 16, Watson the Dachshund. He really was our son’s dog, but we inherited him when he went to college (our son, Wes, not Watson). Did you know that Wes wanted Watson back? I said, “No Way!”

The other challenges are:
Simply Scrapping Card Challenge for Week 4: Color challenge
Any Stamp Will Do Fantasy and Whimsy June 2010 Challenge
