Cutest Scottie Mini !!!

So I sneaked a peek of the cover last week and here he is in all his splendid scottie glory! So cute!!! All the papers are from My Little Shoebox and I love LOVE LOVE the way it turned out. I tried not to bling it out too much so his owner would feel free to add pics and her own special touches! Had to deliver before posting pics as MEF is actually one of my regualr followers! Hope everyone is having a great week. The book came from Micheals and is by Mary Englebright. Love the Pink Paislee tapes, they are so much fun to work with. The flowers are by Maya Road and the ribbon and buttons are just misc from my stash. TFL!!!

Tomorrow is my Dad's birthday and thanks to the holiday...I forgot to mail his card in a timely manner. Good thing my sister's are getting the present, so at least that won't be late. Anyway his card is going out today. I designed this myself using the Summer Vacation seasonal cartridge and Plantin Schoolbook (used the font). I so love using the Gypsy to customize. The card is just plain cardstock (which I "borrowed" from T) and I used red stickles to make the letters look appropriate for the sign (I believe it's Christmas Red).  Misc bling from the jewelry department was added to make the "lights".

I really love the way this card turned out. The background is a Hero Arts cling stamp, and maybe my favorite of these to date. The flower is from Kiasercraft, the bling is Hero Arts, Misc Ribbon and the kraft grid paper is actually from some K and Company packaging that I scrounged at a crop earlier this year (someone was just going to toss it, can you believe that???). The other paper is from the Kioshi collection from Basic Grey with some misc ribbon and lace from my stash. I love using the premade cards that you can pick up and this black one is from a large pack from Michaels.

Sneak and the Girls...

So our home has been upgraded to it's first smartphone (not mine). And loads of phone photos have been taken of our girls. The cats are notoriously hard to photograph, but in a battle of the photographers, I spent some time one day getting the shot of Sayuri and Starbuck. (Kayla's easy, but it almost always is the same pose LOL)

Here's the sneaky peek I mentioned. The whole project will be posted very soon as it's finished and is going to be delivered soon.

HUGS! And have a safe and Happy Fourth of July!!!

Puppy Card

So here's another card using mostly the October Afternoon Thrift Store line. The black is just Micheal's brand cardstock and the heart i from the DCWV Pet's Stack. This little puppy shadow is from Sweethearts. Those butterflies are from a Martha Stewart Punch. (and they are covered with Rock Candy Stickles) Nothing holds these little butterflies on better than mini glue dots. I roll them up and pop them under the mini ones and just stick them under the large one. (I heart GLUEDOTS)
I know I know, it needs...SOMESTHING. If you know what that is  then please let me know :).  Maybe a sentiment...but right now this little card can be for whatever i need a card for. TFL!
