our friendship is forever

Hi!  Here's another card that I made for Moxie Fab World's Celebrating Relationships Challenge.  This one is specifically for National Dog Day.  I don't have a dog or any kind of pet.  We used to have fish but they would slowly die one at a time.  I can't remember which we had, orandas or lionhead goldfish.  But they were very pretty and the first pair we ever had started to mate just a few days after we bought them!  I was kind of shocked to see one chasing the other one super quick in the aquarium and then the tiny little eggs and a couple hatched but we just didn't really know how to take care of them.  In any case, I think that will be the closest we come to a pet.  Our kids want a bunny or some kind of guinea pig but I can't do it.  And wouldn't a puppy be so cute?  But no, too much work.   

I know people love their dogs.  My sister-in-law and her husband recently lost theirs and it was sad.  Their dog would watch over our kids when they slept over their house.  He would sleep by their bedroom door, very sweet and protective.  

The dog in the card is from Paper Smooches' Chubby Chums and the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  I got the sketch idea from Clean & Simple Stamping.  There was a tag in the sketch that I turned into a dog house using one of PTI's Tag Sale dies.

But I think the doghouse looks a lot like a birdhouse too.  Who can resist a pink dog? 

Thanks for reading!

Adorable!! I've been coloring my animal stamps pink too for some reason!! Oh yeah, it's one of my fave colors!! Lol!

Very cute! Those trees are fabulous-- love their colors! And that dog house is super cool! I know what you mean about pets. I know that my boys will enjoy one tremendously in the future but not looking forward to the expenses, time, and effort! My siblings have doggies so we get our fur love from them for now! ;)

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
