OLW55, Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: The Pyrex Effect

Today, I combined my two favorite challenges to make a card for Caleb.  This was his last day of 4th grade and he will be moving on from Sutton Elementary to the Middle School South Campus next year.
Inspiration was taken from the trigger picture above from Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger and from One Layer Wednesday to use Cats and Dogs.
I used the two little dogs from the a muse|studio Ooh La La stamp set.  Here's my secret - I cut them apart back when I got my set.  It is okay - I promise - when I mount them together on an acrylic block they stamp just like they originally did.  That is one of the great advantages to cling foam red rubber stamps.  If this stamp were wood mounted it would've been more difficult to stamp my dogs separately!  Don't worry - I haven't gotten a ticket from the "stamp police" yet.
A liberal dose of stamp positioner was used on this card along with bits and pieces of LOTS of a muse|studio stamp sets including:  Ooh La La (dogs), Mad for Plaid (bottom line), Lots of Dots (solid circles), Woodland Friends (quote bubble) and Hey, Man (sentiment).  Also used the middle die from the Scallop Border die set to let the red inside of the card show through and a bit of black polka dotted ribbon on top.  Caleb must like this card cause he showed it to his dad when he got home from work.
BTW - We made it through the storms last night just fine but friends of ours got their deck demolished when a tree fell on it.  Times are much different than when I was a kid.  My family (and dog) were in the hallway but three of us were texting back and forth with family/friends to see how they were.

Just love this - so much fun. Great colours, super senitment and great border. He's going to love it!!

We've got high winds here, but no where near as bad as you've got. Hopefully - the spring will come back soon.

So glad to hear that you & your family are OK. THank goodness for cell phones & being able to check on others so quickly. Worrying never helps, but try not to, right?
Anyway, how I got here - love your take on the Trigger, with the sweet little pups & great layout!
