Relaxing Happy Thoughts

Cute doggy, isn't he?  I just love this Whipper Snapper stamp and if you are as much of a dog lover as I am, you'll want to check out all of the dog and other great stamps Whipper Snapper has in their store.

I made this card for 2 challenges this week:

AAA Cards - for the Guys  and CAS-ology - word for inspiration is Story

This card could be given to a guy or a girl, but I used darker colors so a guy's card it is :)

And, as for a story - Well, I've always had dogs and always loved them, so this card is definitely one example of my life story.

Glad you stopped by, hope you're having happy thoughts!

May the road rise to meet you...

I made this card for the Anything Goes challenge at the  Simon Says Wednesday challenge blog.

I rearranged my craft room yesterday and came across the background paper I used on this card.  Have no idea where this paper is from or how long I've had it, but it is just so pretty.  When I saw the Anything Goes challenge I put on my thinking cap and came up with this card.

So happy you stoppled by today, may the wind be always at your back :)

Summer will be here any day now (I hope, still very chilly in Sedalia, CO).  Anyway, Summer is always so full of colorful flowers and this paper was just what this chilly, wet day needed today.

I made this card for the challenge over at the Fusion challenge blog.  I chose to use both the sketch and the photo for my card taking inspiration from the pretty colors and using butterflies as the paper strips in the upper left corner.

Here's the Fusion inspiration:

Enjoy and remember this Memorial Day week-end :)

My Favorite Things Sketch 229

Well, I'll tell you, my little garden Gnomes are gonna catch cold here on the front range; it's been raining the entire month of May on and off.  Oh yeah, even a day of snow a few weeks ago.  The dogs are keeping me very busy with all the wet paw business, but that's o.k. they don't seem to mind the rain much :)

So, keeping warm and dry inside today I stamped the adorable Gnomes for this week's sketch challenge at the My Favorite Things Wednesday challenge.  Here's the sketch:

Glad you stopped by today.  Keep warm and dry in your neck of the woods :)

A BIG Hello!

When I saw this week's challenge sketch over at Case This Sketch the idea for this card jumped into my head. All of the stamps are from Stampin' Up.  I inked the splotch stamps with 2 colors of ink, and sprayed with water.  I then stamped the hello, fussy cut it out and popped it up with pop dots.  A few sequins hearts and another card is born :)  

Here's the inspiration sketch:

So glad you stopped by, a BIG Hello to you!!

You have my heart

Cute!! Just love this stamp set from My Favorite Things called You have my heart.  The inspiration for my card came from this week's sketch challenge at Case this Sketch.

Anyone who shares their life with dogs knows they just "take your heart away", such loving companions.  My husband and I share our lives with our 2 dogs, Angus and Gracy and our sweet cat, Mr. Boo.

Here is the sketch from Case this sketch:

Glad you stopped by today!
