Another Doggy Sympathy

 I can't believe I've whipped out six of these in an afternoon!  I guess dog grooming shops need to keep stocked up, especially if they've been in business a long time! I cased this off Mary Fish, from Stampin Pretty - Thank you, Mary!  The stamp set is D is for Dog from Stampin Up, and the cardstock is Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, and Blushing Bride.  The ovals had to be trimmed down a bit after punching, so they may be slightly uneven, but I just loved the idea of a punched paw!
Thanks for looking!

Serene Birthday

It's been a while since I've made a sponged background card, so I thought I'd give it another try.  I've also been wanting to use the Great Blue Heron by Repeat Impressions Stamps.I made this card for the Outlawz' Sunday CAS with a Moon Challenge, but I'm not sure how CAS this is! LOL!  So I guess I'll have to enter it into several other challenges too.  The background was done with Memento inks and the Heron was colored with copics.  You won't believe how tempted I was to add some sparkle to the water and the edges, but then it wouldn't be CAS, would it!
I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
The Outlawz Challenges - Sunday CAS
Allsorts Challenge #195 - Animals
Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes
Broken Box Stock - Happy Birthday
613 Avenue Create -Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations 202 - Anything Goes
Penny's Paper Crafty #115 - Anything Goes
Black Tie Friday #119- Animals

Thanks for visiting!

Valentine Vertical Stair Card

I just had to make one more Valentine card before I put the Valentine stamps away!  Especially after I saw this pattern for a vertical stair card on Noortje's blog!  The little bear is a Penny Black stamp I've had for a while and the rest of the supplies are just misc from my stash, that I've probably had for a few years too.  The card folds in at the stairs to make an A2 size card and the LOVE stickers fit perfectly on the stairs!  Here are a few more views:

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
Fashionista Challenge - #12 Valentine
Craft Your Passion - My Valentine
Celebrate the Occasion - #99 Valentine Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Love and Romance

Happy Valentine's Day!

 Just a quick post to wish you all a very Happy Valentine's Day and to show you what I've been busy with this past weekend.  I got this idea off Pinterest, so I can't claim it as an original, but I thought it was just the cutest Valentine for my grandsons to take to school.  The monkey is punch art from the Fiskar's blog and the shaped topper was cut with my Silhouette.  Now the banana runts were not so easy to track down, but I did finally find them at a candy store in the mall.  Carter needed 26 for his kindergarten class and Charlie needed 10 for his preschool class, so needless to say, grandma was busy!  Luckily I had plenty of valentines from last year for me to send out!
Will be back soon!
