Today over at BBTB2 the theme of our challenge is 'Dog or Cat which is your favourite?'

Well,  growing up we had a dog and a cat and I loved them both equally but looking through my cartridges I couldn't resist the little scotty dog on 'Just Because' Cards cartridge.

For my project I just plainly decorated a gift bag with some stripey paper and cut Happy Birthday from the Stamping cartridge  shadow and base at 2". Then I cut out the little dog using black shrink  plastic ( cuts like a dream with my Cricut!!) at 7" and punched a hole before shrinking him down with my heatgun to make a little dog charm for a keyring. I added some blue gems for a collar,  a little bone charm,  then added them both to a key ring finding, a nice little extra gift on the bag for the recipient!

Please pop over to BBTB2 and see the super creations from the rest of the DT and let's see your lovely projects, which do you prefer Dogs or Cats? there are plenty to choose from on many cricut cartridges!

Thanks so much for popping by

Oh Julie, I love, love your bag!!! I love that you made that key chain with the cute Scottie! I haven't yet used my Cricut with Shrink plastic, but you are inspiring me to do so!! I think the grand-kiddo's would love key rings with cute things on it! Hugs!
