Scooby Doo -- Where Are You??? Blog Hop -- All Aboard the Mystery Machine!! :)

Welcome to the "Scooby Doo -- Where Are You???" Blog Hop!!

I'm so glad you're here to see me today!! :)  If you've arrived here from Kimberly, then the Mystery Machine is traveling correctly down the path, and you are in the right place!! :)  But if you've been chased here by a ghost, narrowly escaped from a haunted mansion, or perhaps just popped over from your email or dashboard, then be sure to CLICK HERE and begin at the beginning so you don't miss any of the Scooby Snacks!! :)  Kari has some Blog-Hop-Goodies to tell you about, so I wouldn't want you to miss those details...

For the hop today I'd like to share The-Toby-Dog's version of Scooby Snacks AND a groovy Scooby card!!
I remember waking up early on Saturday mornings (way back in the 70's) to watch Scooby Doo with The-Big-Brother...  It's no secret that I was afraid of the dark, the creaks and groans of the house we lived in, and definitely the basement!!  However, I was always intrigued by the "mystery" of Scooby Doo...  And as long as my brother didn't try to scare me too much while we watched it, I usually made it through every episode....  So I was pretty excited about this Blog Hop -- I hope you are too!!  :)
The-Toby-Dog has been the PERFECT dog for our home for almost six years now...  We adopted him from a shelter when he was only ten weeks old.  He was an itty-bitty puppy with itty-bitty feet, but it didn't keep him from growing into 50+ pounds of still-hyper-puppy-playfulness!!  He's not a great dane like Scooby, but he's loyal and true and always by your side in the dark...  So I made him a bag of special Scooby Snacks!!  :)
I found some Scooby Doo stickers at my local LSS...  I mounted this one for the tag on orange cardstock and fussy cut around it before adding pop dots to the back...  I cut a purple oval and embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder (I think it's a Build-A-Bear embossing folder, but I like it better for puppy prints!!)...  I also added the "yum!" sentiment found on the "Food For Thought" Stamp Art Set from K Andrew Designs.  I used the same stamp for the paper strip -- The-Toby-Dog hasn't learned to read yet, but if he could, I'm sure he'd agree that these treats are yum, yum, YUMMY!! :)
I also wanted to make a FUN and GROOVY card, so I decided to mount this really adorable sticker onto orange cardstock also, then again fussy-cut around Scooby...   I used the Feeling Groovy Cricut Lite Cartridge for the font as well as the flowers...  This is proving to be one of my favorite fonts to use!!  Isn't it FUN???  :)
I added one of my homemade Wiggle Wires (tutorial here) so that Scooby could strut and jiggle his way to the next mystery!! :)
I hope you've enjoyed my projects for today's hop!!  I have a little Scooby SURPRISE for one lucky person who leaves a comment on this post letting me know which character is YOUR favorite BESIDES SCOOBY (mine is Daphne -- cuz I love her red hair and fashion sense!!)...

Thanks again for visiting!!  Your next stop on our adventure with the Mystery Crew is... Colleen!!

If you've missed any of the stops, or would like to revisit anyone, you'll find a list of the entire hop below -- For your convenience, clicking on each link will take you DIRECTLY to each participant's post...  So you won't miss a thing even if you're joining us later in the week!!  :)

Hands down this is one very adorable card and bag of treats for your own dog. I love how colorful and fun it is.

Of course Scooby is everyone's favorite but Shaggy is right up there with him. He is such a chicken of everything, yet he and Scooby are always the heros.

Colleen said...

Ahhh, good ol'Scooby Doo. I used to watch him as a kid to, and now, all 4 of my kids have enoyed him at one time or another. My fav is Shaggy. Such a chicken, but so funny.

I love the doggy treats...and the card is by far the best I have seen yet. I like you remember sitting down on Saturday Mornings to get my Scooby fix. I have a hard time picking just one character, I loved Daphne for her red hair also, but Shaggy he was up there with her. That big ole scarity cat. :) TFS

I still watch Scoobby Doo, but all the time. I made the mistake of getting a couple DVD's for my Grand Daughter. Scoobby DOOOO was one of her first words and she watches them and Dora, constantly.

Love the cute stickers on your projects. What fun! TFS
