Mystery revealed ~ I love Dogs! ♥

Happy Weekend! 
I'm watching the torrential rain falling outside the kitchen window
and am grateful today is an inside day!
I'm a coffee girl, that's no secret :)
But on rainy days, I love a cup of warm tea, snuggling up with a good book,
or heading to The Cabana to stamp, color, create!
Today is also the day we reveal the *Mystery Image*,
a progressive swap that I am in at SCS.
This swap was originally started by Jeanette,
and all of us take turns being a hostess and sending out an image to
all the participants to build a card around it ...
then return it to the hostess for swapping back out.
This month, I was the hostess :)
I sent out this adorable 'in the doghouse' Elyzbells stamp
as it remains one of my very, very favorite in my stamp collection.
I wanted to see what the other ladies
would create with this same image so this one was top pick!
This is my take ~ very 'primary colors',
pretty simple as I wanted the sweet pup to be the focal point.
The buttons just jumped out of my bin and onto my card :)
The inside is with another Elzybells coordinating sentiment stamp.

                                                       In our family, we love dogs!
My daughter recently had a fundraiser for a dog rescue organization
and I sold off 75% of my SU! stamps to donate to the cause.
As well as some VERY generous purchases through many of my
online stamping friends that were a beautiful blessing + contribution ♥
I hope today is a good one for you!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

Card entered for consideration:  HIMCR - Lots of Layers!
Polkadoodles - 2 designers papers
