Grinning Retriever by Artist Chesney Young
Image being launched February 4, 2012

I thought I'd give you a sneak peek at a really funny grinning retriever coming out at  Squigglefly's shop this weekend!  Now if you have ever had any contact with a retriever you will know they are a super devoted single master canine!  However, never have I seen one with a full new set of dentures as this one has!  I well imagined he was dreaming about it raining bones - such as the sentiment says.

The card is a 6x6 with layers of various pp from my stash.  I did overlay a vellum sheet with gold lace on it.  Then I cut the heart and embossed it from my Spellbinders.  The caption is computer generated from a collection I had kept for years.  However, I had NO bones.  I had given the last of my puppy/dog items to my daughter for her scrapbook.  So out comes the Shrink Film and hubbie and I decided we would try our hand at making our own bones.

this card has a lot of grin in it!
