Wags N' Whiskers Challenge

Good morning everyone....

I hope you are all having a great week so far. We here in SW Ontario are in the middle of a heat wave....setting record highs all over the place. It has been 32C with a humidex of 42C. I am hoping for it to be a tiny bit cooler as we start our vacation at the end of next week. Two glorious weeks by the ocean......I can hardly wait!!!!

It's time again for the Wags N' Whiskers Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to you by "ME" and I have chosen "Punch It". Add a punched element to your card.

The adorable image I have used on my card is "Traveling Buddies".

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I painted the background with icicle H2o's. I used walnut stain distress ink for the edges. I added some glossy accents to the tags on the luggage. The border was done with my MS modern garland punch. The DP is from Basic Grey.

Be sure to stop by the Wags N' Whiskers Blog to see the fabulous creations the Diva's have to share with you today.

Today is also release day for the "Sports" and "Fun in the Sun" digi images.

There is a DT call for 2 permanent Diva's and 2 Guest Diva's.....check out all the info at the Wags N' Whiskers Blog.

This will be my last post until I return from I will see you all again on the 1st of August.

Have a wonderful weekend.....and Thanks so much for stopping by....
