How Much is That Doggie In the Window -Mo's DT Post #104

It's still Elaine's turn to host and this weeks theme is "Inspired By A Song" Elaine, I must say you've really challenged me so far, I was going to do it really easy this time, and pick "Happy Birthday" but that was a little too easy and after all this is a challenge. Then I remembered that song "How Much Is That Doggie In the Window" and decided to use "It's All in the Accessories" especially since it looks just like my Ginger. Ginger is a special member of the family who came into our lives 11 years ago and is a rescue dog, we have no idea how old she really is she has a little gimp in her leg, but who cares, we love her just the same. She is a great companion for my hubby and is all of 8 pounds, a tiny little thing, but has that Napoleon complex and thinks she is 10 feet tall and protects us like she is a pit bull. Anyway, you can find that adorable image HERE and HERE

I made this for my Mom who 80th Birthday is a few days she keeps trying to steal Ginger by sticking her in the seat of her and yes, Ginger does give us that evil eye look sometimes, and we know to move our hand very quickly..

Of course I had to make a matching box, I used my scallop punch and tried to make it look like a canopy over the window of the pet shop and this is what I came up with.

the card and the box:

and last but not least my angle shot.

I hope I inspired someone to join in on the fun, I can't wait to see what you come up with, just don't for get to use one of Mo's images. If you need more inspiration don't forget to visit the rest of the teams blogs they really out did themselves and came up with some great ideas just click HERE to see what they came up with and as Pat always says, don't forget to leave them a little love.

I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts which you can find HERE and the ribbon and charm from The Ribbon Girl which you can find HERE
