Fun In The Sun

Hi Guys!
Time for a new challenge at Mo's!
This week we'd like to see your Weather Related cards.
I decided to use Mo's "Its Hot" image and color it on kraft with my usual prismacolor and Lyra pencils.
I printed off a sentiment from the computer and used some of my favorite prima wooden buttons to pull it all together. Hope you like it. :)


And a close up of the image:


I thought the dog looked a bit like a bluetick coonhound so thats how I colored him up.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy Crafting!

Well if that's not the dog Mo was trying to draw I don't know what is. You did an amazing job on his fur. So realistic. This pair always makes me smile. Just hanging out and coolin' off. :-) Love it Dorcas. Hugs!
