Here's how to join in this week's challenge:
  1. Use mostly Close To My Heart products, though it doesn't have to be 100%. 
  2. Create your "Dog Days of Summer" project. 
  3. Post your project to your blog or other online gallery.
  4. Come back here and directly link to your blog post, not your blog home page. 
  5. Mention Heart 2 Heart somewhere in your blog post indicating that you are playing along with us and link to our site. 
  6. Consider adding the H2H  badge to your blog. We'd love to spread the word and see more crafters participating.

 Thank you for barking along,
Nancy

Gorgeous creations by the DT. Not sure if we are allowed to post something a few days old. I had just created a card using Avonlea and used "A Bowwow" stamp set on it so hope it is ok. Thanks for the great challenges. Have a fantastic week. Hugs, Gloria

Love this challenge and all your creations :-) As a breeder of Golden Retrievers I am always taking pictures of my puppies, but have a hard time coming up with a way to scrap them. This was just the motivation I needed. Thanks :-)

This challenge made me realize that I don't do animals much, but it was a good challenge. That's what a challenge is all about :) Thanks for the "doggie" challenge
