Too hot for little doggies!

8-)Well Summer finally arrived, it's been scorchio all week!  Hateful when you're stuck in work but I've all of next week off so finger's crossed for a few more nice days :)

Ruby LOVES the warm weather and spends most of the day out baking in the sun and then taking refuge in the shade.  She'll be glad to get her hair cut next week, I'm sure it's HOT in there!

This card is for a friend of mine who runs a doggy charity which is celebrating their 25th year.  It's not wonky in real life (I think!), just a wonky photo!  Image from High Hopes: Watson - coloured with pencils.  I'm lovin this flower die set from CC Designs, the flowers are just the right size for me.
