This weekend is all about dog rescue awareness. My family and I have rescued two dogs, both of which have since passed away. Banco, my first rescued Westie, was the love of my life. He was the Omega of all Omega dogs. All he wanted to do was run and play. He was rescued by a State Trooper along with his siblings from a truck, possibly from a puppy mill. The driver had no proof of ownership, as well as, the puppies did not look well cared for. The Trooper confiscated the dogs and brought then to the local Westie rescue society. Banco was very sick and wasn't supposed to survive past a couple of years. We had him for roughly 6 years until he developed liver cirrhosis. Our other Westie, Minnie, was taken back by her breeder because the Dalamation in the family was getting into serious fights with Minnie. The breeder, who we also got Banco from, contacted us about Minnie. She had noticed that Banco and Minnie got along very well when they were boarding with her. She thought Minnie would be better with us.
For today's project I made a double-sided Christmas ornament of Banco and Minnie. I used the scalloped and circle Nestabilities dies to cut out the glittered card stock shapes. I used a 1" circle punch to cut out my dogs faces. I adhered each face to the inside of two flattened crafting bottle caps. The silver twine was adhered in-between the two caps and the die-cut glittered CS. I added self-adhesive rhinestones and a wired-ribbon bow.
