For Fido

Hello there. A very quick post from me on this wet, windy and cold Sunday evening. The clocks have gone back an hour and it's getting darker sooner. Oh well ...

Here's something I made for a friend's son. He named his new puppy "Fido", which I think is rather sweet. Such an old fashioned name for a dog.  I've used Lawn Fawn's Milk Carton die to make a dog house. I made score lines at half inch intervals on the milk and applied Frayed Burlap to dirty it up. For the roof - a piece of red card stock with quarter inch score and to secure it I used a little yellow peg.

The little frenchie is from Lawn Fawn's Critters At The Dog Park, coloured with Graph'It markers and cut with coordinating die. For the greenery I used Lawn Fawn's Grassy Border Die. I've surrounded Fido's house with a few of his favourite things: a ball, bone and a fire hydrant!

To spell out the doggie's name I used Lawn Fawn's Riley's ABC, stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black. I filled the dog house with milk bone cookies fit for a growing puppy.
