A little chuckle!

Happy Tuesday!

I thought today would be a good day for a chuckle!  I fell in love with this dog and knew exactly what I was going to use him for!  The inside message says "That's dog years, right? Happy Birthday!"

Hopefully, whoever gets this will have a great sense of humor!  ha ha

Back tomorrow with another challenge from Dies R Us!

Day Three

I'm back!!

Here is the third card I created Friday!  It was snowing here then & I think being stuck inside gave me extra incentive to work on my cards!  Brady was too busy watching the snow coming down to want to sit on my lap.  And believe me, you get a whole lot more done when you don't have a 20+ lb. cat curled up on your lap!

I have a lot of friends who like to get blank cards that they can write their own message in & this cutie is just perfect for that!  She is going to have muscles like Popeye trying to write with THAT pencil!

Back tomorrow with the last of my creative spurt!

Day Two!

Hello, again!

Back again with the 2nd card as promised yesterday.  This was another I just couldn't pass up.

I've never seen such cute pigs!  And what a darling sentiment!  I love that phrase...I like you a "lottle" great is that!

I put a coat of Wink of Stella on each image, but it doesn't show up well.

Back tomorrow with yet another one I fell in love with!

I'm on a roll!

Hi, gals!

I have finally gotten all of my decorating done & can go back to working on my cards!  Who knew there would be so much to do when you moved?  New walls mean new wall hangings.  I think the UPS driver must know the way to my door by heart.  Most of the things I have found were on the internet!

I've been on a real roll today!  Four cards!  I just got some new Stamping Bella stamps and have been having so much fun with them.  I didn't realize how many cute stamps they had until I looked on line.  Here is the first card I came up with!

I'm a sucker for "critters" and they have tons of darling ones! And cute sentiments to go with them!

Back tomorrow with another one I couldn't pass up!

Dies R Us Challenge - Think Spring!

Hello, friends!

I had to laugh when I saw the theme for today's Dies R Us Challenge was "Think Spring" because I have been thinking of nothing else for weeks!  I am SO tired of winter and cold and ice & snow! I bet all of you are too!  So this will be a wonderful chance to forget winter & get your thoughts on spring and summer!

The dies I used today are the following:  Marianne Design Wooden Bench (DRU will offer these periodically throughout the year when they have their Eureopean Dies), Dee's Distinctively Tree Base 2, Dee's Distinctively Tree Toppers, Lawn Fawn Spring Showers, & Impression Obsession Cat Set.

Head over to the Dies R Us Challenge Blog to enter your creation!  If you are the lucky winner, you will win a gift voucher to the amazing Dies R Us Store!

QKR Stampede Challenge - Valentine Cards!

Happy February!

Are you already thinking ahead to Valentine's Day?  Well, if not, this week's challenge at QKR Stampede should help you get in the mood!  The theme this week is Valentine's Day!  Get out your favorite images and supplies & see what you can come up with!  I decided on ddigi # 6201- Heart Box Angel for my card.

Valentines are SO much fun to make!  I combined one of my favorite dies with one of my favorite border punches for this one.  I have tons & tons of Martha Stewart punches and forget to use them. With all the dies I have, I usually grab those instead.  I'll have to make a better attempt at using them from time to time.

Are you looking forward to a romantic evening or will you be staying home with a good book like those of us who are single?  At least I will be sure to have chocolate!  ha ha

Catch you later!
