Happy August all!  I hope this finds you healthy and happy and enjoying this strange summer as best you can.  There is a new fun challenge that starts today on The Lost Coast Portal to Creativity   called Let's Go Vegetarian.
Think flowers, plants, leaves - or in this case, vegetarian dogs!

For this card I used the Coffee Chihuahua stamp from Lost Coast Designs and the Eat Cake clear stamp from Carmen's Veranda.

My first step was to stamp my Chihuahua with black ink onto a piece of a background that I had left over with a stenciled design in a light brown color.  I fussy cut him out and colored his collar red and whitened his teeth.  I then restamped his head onto white card stock and cut out the eyes, which I superimposed over the original stamped eyes.  When I cut him out, I deliberately cut out the cup of coffee he was holding so I could give him a head of lettuce to hold instead.

The background is simply a piece of tan and white scrapbook paper that I edged with brown ink and layered with a white panel.  I glued my Chihuahua and his veggies to the card front, stamped the sentiment in black ink and cut it out, edging it with black ink and cutting the words apart.  I glued them as shown, and it's a wrap!

So have fun "going vegetarian" this month and enter the challenge for a chance to win some free stamps!
