For the Dogs - WMS DT Blog Waltz - Creating with Pouch Mart Bags

I am excited to be participating in a special blog waltz today.  Several of the WMS Design team members are using Waltzingmouse stamps to embellish bags from Pouch Mart - a web store that sells all shapes, colors and sizes of bags.  The folks over at Pouch Mart generously sent us some bags to work with and they are also offering a $25 Pouch Mart gift certificate for one lucky commenter.    See all the prize details at the bottom of my post.
I've chosen to work with these fun 4"x6" paw print bags today -  I make a lot of crafts to sell at my Church Fair in October - and one very popular item has been dog treats in fun packaging!   I make my own dog biscuits using a recipe from Bullwrinkle.com (Scroll to the bottom and click on the Recipes box - I used the Milk Bone Dog Biscuits one)
The" home made for you" label is from the Candy Jar Christmas set and the Best Friend is from the Compact Family set.  I attached the best friend label to the circle with a little flower brad, punched a hole in the circle label and looped a key chain through that and the drawstring tie on the bag.  I put the dog cookies inside a clear bag, stapled the top to keep them fresh and placed the bag inside the paw print bag -  and ready to go!

I'm always looking for cute cookie cutter shapes and this past winter I found these wonderful dog and mouse ones in a shop in Vermont when we were visiting my DH's brother and his wife.
I just had to get the mouse - right?  (although it doesn't look like she's waltzing!?!)

Be sure to leave a comment at each blog -   one lucky commenter will win a $25.00 gift certificate to Pouch Mart - and another lucky commenter will win a Waltzingmouse Stamp set!  You have until Sunday July 29th 11:59 pm EST to leave your comments!

Winners will be announced here on my blog Monday July 30th.

Here are the links!  Let's go see what bags each of these designers used for their projects today!

These are too cute. The motel I own gives out doggie goodie bags to guests with dogs and while I can't imagine making these in bulk, it would be fun to have something like this for the special furry guest once in awhile.
