Welcome to the first day of the January Mark's Finest Papers hop!  I just get a kick out of sentiments like this one.  I am of the age where I can tease my friends about this now!  I got a little bit technique-y on you guys today.  I embossed my bones across my card front with black embossing powder.  (By the way, is it just me or does black embossing powder stick to everything regardless of whether or not you use an anti-static pad?)  Then I poured a little bit of bleach into a cup and painted my dog bones.  I finished with the embossed sentiment and a couple of rounded corners. 
 
Don't forget to head onto Sue's blog for another look at Fantastic Dogs.  Thanks for stopping here and have a great day!

You have to know people well to be that rude - but if you can get away with it! Like the bone colour - bleaching has done a great job. Yes dark powders can be a pain!
