Stampin' Sisterhood Father's Day Blog Hop

Hi stampers!   Welcome to the Rubbernecker Design Team's Stampin' Sisterhood Father's Day Blog Hop!  We're here to give you lots of ideas for cards for those men in your life!
Be sure to read all the deets below to see how you can win some Rubbernecker rubber!! 

I made my Father's Day card for my son - who is father to two basset hounds - Daisy and Roscoe.  Yes -  my grandchildren are dogs (!) and they are very loving and cute!

The doggie stamp is not a basset hound - his ears are too short -  but close enough I say!  I attempted to color them with the appropriate areas of white, black and brown.  I'm sure Josh will say I woefully failed in that attempt!  but at least I tried!
 
Here are the real doggies -  Roscoe is on the left and Daisy is on the right.
 Something caught their interest in the neighbor's yard
 Roscoe still sits pretty and Daisy loses interest in looking at Grandma's camera!

I used the April SFYTT sketch for my card - using a wonky rectangle instead of a circle.  I thought it made the card a little more jumpy - just like the dogs!

So here you go with all the details!

Thank you for the smiles with the pictures of your adorable grand-dogs, Julia! I love their sad-looking faces. I also LOVE your creative idea for your son's Father's Day card to use this CUTE doggie image (he's one of my faves from the Animals collection). Your card is so clever, cute, and fun, and your son is going to love it, I'm sure!
