Fourth of July Pet Safety Tips
- Make sure your pet's microchip is registered with your current information
- Make sure your pet is wearing their collar with up-to-date tags and that the collar is secure
- Keep your pet inside your home and don't bring them to Fourth of July celebrations
- Make sure ALL doors and windows are closed and locked
- Turn on the TV or music to help muffle the sounds of fireworks
- Help distract your pet with a food-stuffed toy or long-lasting chew treat
During Canada Day fireworks a couple days ago, I distracted Humble with a nice brushing with his favourite brush -- he loves that [it's part of our daily routine!], and it puts him in a really zen-like state. :o)
I hope these tips help!
And now for today's card share! I recently received a box of my projects back from Paper Crafts [things that appeared in past issues], and I re-photographed some of them this afternoon so I could share them with you over the next week or so. Here's a card that appeared in Stamp It! Techniques: Volume 2...
I stamped and heat-embossed the background with white embossing powder, then I inked it using sponge daubers and ink from various ink pads. I wanted to use the solid feather images and the feather outlines, but I didn't want to cover the colours of the solid feathers up so much with the outlines, so I decided to offset them -- thought that looked kind of neat! The feathers and letters were fussy cut and attached with foam squares. The stamps used are from Hero Arts.
Thanks for stopping by today! :o)
