Bah Humbug!


I'm still having fun with the Tim Holtz crazy dog stamps, and here's another one with what I fondly call "grumpy dog.' He looks like the perfect match for this Bah Humbug die from Crafter's Companion. LOL I colored him with Copics, adding a gold sequin to his collar with a drop of red liquid pearls. The green snippet of dsp is by SU! (r) and the little golden lights were done with a SU! mini ornament punch (r) and some small snippets of gold mirror card. I strung them all together with some gold crochet thread.

I'm sharing this with the Snippets Playground weeks #273 & 274 where you only have to use your snippets.

It's also heading over to Craftyhazelnut's Christmas challenge CHNC #325 - which is anything goes as long as it's Christmas with an option of using no patterned paper.

Thanks for checking in today and have yourself a great Sunday!

So fun card! Great use of the TH "grumpy dog" and love how you adorned his collar, it's a great detail! The tiny baubles with the gold thread look amazing, such brilliant idea!
Happy Sunday!

Fun Christmas card. Very nicely done!

You always seem to make the "grumpy dog" look not so grumpy. Love the "tag" on his collar. The sentiment is great and I love the leaves also. Have a good Sunday.

Another great die an it's goes perfectly with this little grumpy pup! Like the way you decked out his collar. I really should be making some Christmas cards thru the year too.

A very funny dog! I can't get over how well the sequin works for the tag on his collar. That is super duper!

This pooch is so cute, I nearly missed the light string, just admiring the dog and the sentiment & bottom border. Clever use of th's Crazy dogs. He's worked great in every card you've presented! TFS & Hugs

As someone who has barely used the crazy birds I HAD to get, I've avoided the crazy dogs, but you keep tempting me with your awesome creations using them, Carol! This guy was obviously MADE to grace Bah Humbug Christmas cards! Love it!! Hugs, Darnell

OMGosh, how cute! Love when you use these crazy dog stamps, Carol! This one is adorable with how you cut him out and the way you created his collar! Gotta say that those gold foiled lights at the top are great idea, too! Love it! :)

What a fancy collar that dog has on. I laugh that you paired him with Bah Humbug, because it is perfect for him. I also have to laugh as how ornate the Bah Humbug is... so festive! :-)
