Outside the Box

Hello.  Welcome.  I still have a couple of xmas cards to make but couldn't resist using this cute doggy stamp that arrived from DRS today.  Their challenge is Sing It To Me, be inspired by a song.  The first thing that sprang to mind was 'How Much is That Doggie in The Window?' and it goes a bit like this.

I decided to make a doghouse with windows.  It ended up a very tall doghouse.  I used Poppystamps Madison House dies for the windows and the roof.  The bell over the door is part of Poppystamps Antique Lamp Post.  I cut all these pieces from gold mirror card.  I masked and stamped Doggy Dillema, once for the top window, many times for the bottom one.  So, how much is that doggie in the window?  The one with the waggley tail??

I put my very tall dog house on a white card and added some white glitter hills, because after all, it is that time of the year LOL
