"Thanks to the Cathouse (I'm in the Doghouse with You)"

Dispel the Monday blues with this Monday morning to Sunday night challenge.

Moderator: Ellie

Welcome to the first of the July/August 2020 challenges and the theme is "Songs". I chose the Johnny Paycheck song "Thanks to the Cathouse (I'm in the Doghouse with you)" yes that is the title of his song. The same singer who wrote and sang "Take this job and shove it". So my challenge for you is to create a card with a cat or a dog as the main focus. An extra point if you can create a funny caption to go along with your card. Here are two examples of a card with a cat and one with a dog.

You have until next Sunday, July 12th to get out of the doghouse to win a prize from me!

Have fun and I cannot wait to see what you create!

Those not in the cat house nor the dog house:

1. Elaine
2. Elaine (extra point just for doing 4 cards!)
3. Golda
4. Golda (extra point)
5. Kathy
6. Kathy (extra point - Purrfect!)
7. Terrie
8. Trudi

Hilarious song choice Barry! As usual, great cards. I have a new dog die set I haven't used and need to break out. Thanks for the motivation.

Barry, I love your cards! The sentiment on the first made me laugh. This will be a fun one. I'll have to find the song and listen to it.
* * * Okay, that was a weird song. I'll definitely have fun with the challenge, though.

Yes, It is a weird and not very optimistic song I chose it simply because the title was silly.

Barry, what a fun challenge. I never listen to country music (it was all I heard growing up... so have sworn it off for life!) but I do lover dogs and cats. So count me in! Oh... and your sample cards are great.
Elaine, your Westie cards are adorable. Love the plaid backgrounds with the white pup!
