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! ;)

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…
