Another Doggie Adoption

A good friend and her husband recently adopted a puppy from the Milwaukee Humane Society--Lexi!

Boy is she adorable. Well since I've been home on holiday I had time to make a card for them to welcome their newest addition. I do have to say that I cased the general layout from Lisa Cook.
Recipe: (standard size, horizontal)
Stamp- Doggie digital image from coloring book, WOOF from TAC,
paw print from foam stamp set from Michael's & "man's
best friend" is extrapolated from a circle set (unknown)
Paper- Confetti White (SU!), pink and brown (Bazzil) and dark
dark pink (unknown)
Ink- All Palette Ink & black marker
Hope You Enjoy!

Cards to Share

Well, I know it has been a while, but I'm back to post a few recent creations. I've been playing with my Cricut and having some fun!

I made the Sweet Strawberry card for a dear friend of my Mom's as she has been wonderful about visiting with my Father both times he's been in the hospital recently. She has been a dear and supportive friend and we wanted to show our appreciation.

I want to thank Michele Greenwood for her help as well. My first version of this card wasn't as lovely and she gave me some ideas to spruce it up--she is incredibly talented.

Recipe: Size (4 x 4)
Sweet Strawberry die cut (own creation)
Memory Box cs (red & limon)
DCWV (bg paper from Flower Shower Stack)
Rhinestones (Bead Designs--Hobby Lobby)
Ribbon (Trim It Up--Michaels)
Stamp (SWEET--Hampton Art)
Ink (Haystack, Noir Black & Moulin Rouge--Palette)
Other (Scor-It, scalloped piece from Penny Duncan)

I continued to play, I was simply inspired (that and I am on holiday for a week which doesn't hurt either)! I made the next card just for fun. I liked how the strawberry turned out so much (my first really good attempt at creating a die on my own) I decided to try my hand at another summer treat. I've been enjoying having a Mohetto once in a while now that my mint is up and the weather is right so I had limes on the brain--smile. So here it is, my Slice of Summer...

Recipe: Size 4 x 4
Lime Slice & Leaves die Cut (own creation)
Bazzell cs (blue)
Memory Box cs (Limon)
Rain Drops (own creation, not name brand)
Stamp ("Hello Summer" from TAC Hello Seasons)
Ink (Jardin Moss & Landscape from Palette)
Other (die cut frame--file name: nunestieset 3, I want
to give whomever credit so let me know if this
is yours and I will be happy to share your name and site!)

Well that is all for now, I hope that you enjoy!
