Choriza's First Christmas

My son recently adopted a  dog  from the MSPCA  (Mass Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals)  - she's a 2 year old Staffordshire Bull terrier.  Her name is Choriza.  I don't have any photos of her yet  -  but she looks pretty much like this photo I found on line.  She stands just about a foot off the ground - and she is one sturdy little piece of muscle - very sweet and well behaved!
So, being a crafter,  I made simple personalized ornament for my new granddog - since this is her first Christmas with my son and we wanted to make her feel welcome!
I found this unfinished wooden dog bone at Joanns - it's about 4" x 2".  I painted it with Bronze Art Anthology Metal Effects Dimensional Paint - leaving the streaks in it to look more like a dog cookie.  I added her name and the year with Idea-ology Label Letters and the snowflake and Christmas are Remnant Rubs Christmas Time.  I brushed over everything with Multi Medium Matte to seal it.   I added a piece of tan felt to the back and looped a piece of twine through the hole so he can hang it up.

What a lovely idea Julia, it is always nice to appreciate our furry friends, especially at Christmas, I am sure Choriza will find it very interesting! Have a wonderful Christmas! Hugs, Anne xx
