Dog Days: noun plural

This term means "sultry, summer weather" and also "a period of stagnation or inactivity."
But it has nothing to do with pets.
Sirius (known as the Dog Star) seems to reappear in the skies in early July. Its rising coincides with the warmest time of the year in the northern hemisphere – thus, the dog days.
If you are one of my regular's then you might have noticed that I didn't blog for a whole 4 days in the beginning of July...for me, that's like missing in action, come find me, unheard of, oh wow! LOL If you're now wondering what I was doing I was madly making one of my Sassy Quotes books, 2 to be exact. One was commissioned and the other one was needed in the store.

entering my Sassy Quote book into:
2 Creative Chicks - 3-D challenge #4
2 Creative Chicks

For anyone that's never seen them ( these are # 4 and 5 ), I love that women buy them for their friends! To see them read it is a hoot, they giggle and chuckle...brings a smile to my heart!

Glitz Designs - Cashmere Dame papers

 And while we are smiling, let me introduce you to my newest friend...
Stella from Bugaboo Stamps!
You know I love snarky, funny humor!
And since Cath from Moxie Fab is having a Mixy Match Challenge, and I have tons of scraps left over from my Sassy Quotes albums, I made this card featuring Stella!

I broke out my neglected Sakura pens and colored in Miss Stella and the border, using my water color pencils for her flesh tone.
Added 2 very tiny yellow rhinestones to her glasses ( they just have to match her blouse, right? )
I also added a blob ( highly underused technical term ) of Helmar Liquid Scrapdots under the wave of the banner so it won't get smashed in the mailing, after all, Stellas's boobies are already flattened, we need something to be perky on the card!
Are you smiling? If you are, then my job is done!

Hi Sandee, nice to hear from you and thanks for your comments on my new blog look! I thought I lost you for a minute because when I clicked on your name it went to your Google+ blog. Glad you're still here on Blogger. These quote books are fab! I bought this paper kit after I saw the first book you made. Haven't used it yet, though! (: Sounds like your store is doing well. Happy for you!
