Mr. Merle the Dauschund

They say you are either a dog person or a cat person.  If I had to choose, I'd go with cats, mainly because they are more self sufficient...which leave me more time for stamping!!  Dogs are cute too though, I have ot admit.  I a I had a good friend in my college years who had a dog and a cat, but she was really a dog person.  She had the funniest Dauschund named Merle.  They were both very eccentric and quite the pair!  I can't say I particularly like a dauschund's over other dogs, but I'll tell you what, they are ADORABLE as puppies!  I mean look at this face!!!!!!!!!  So very darling and sweet!  Which brings me to today's card....
 
This card has a blend of stamps from two of my most favorite stamp companies.  Now stop me if I have told you this before...but I LOVE Paper Smooches and Lawn Fawn Stamps!!!  Sooo... as you can see this card features a dauschund from the Woofers & Tweeters set (PS) as well as some bones, which I place in an hole in the ground made from an oval punch (super easy!) and fun sentiment "I dig you!"  The word bubble is from the LF set A Little Birdie Told Me.  I incorporated colors from the current Challenge over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog and some faux stitching for the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog. 
 
So what do you think?  I hope you like and leave me some loving comments, they always make me so happy! :)  I'll leave you with this fun song, Dixie the Tiny Dog.  I first heard a version of it sung by Mason Jennings, it was extremely hard to find but I found this video of a cute dog with it playing in the background.  Enjoy!
