Doggone Cute

I stayed up late today (which I have been trying not to do lately), but I really wanted to make this card using this image from the Paper Shelter and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  My daughter is moving the 1st of the month so she is getting a new pup on the 3rd, Gus.  She wanted him last year when she graduated, but decided to wait until she got through the first year of teaching.  So....she has put a deposit on the little guy.  She has such allergies so she got a Teddy Bear which is hypoallergenic.

Cool popsicle

I like this color combination that is part of The Challenge and I really liked the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches so I found a way to combine them.  I got a new stamp/die set from Sunny Studio called Perfect Popsicles which I thought would be perfect with this combination.  This is a CAS card for me.

We're MERMAID for each other

I just love this stamp set from My Favorite Things called Mermazing.  I made a shaker card using this weeks sketch from MFT.  I put the sentiment on velum and slightly adjusted to make it look like it is in water.  I had fun with this card.

Mojo 500 Thank you

I can't believe that the Mojo Monday sketch challenge is coming to an end, I think this is one of the first challenges that I did when I started my blog.  Being that I am a Mother, I can understand that family comes first.  Now my children are grown and out of the house so there are many times that I wish I was home when they were younger, but we can't turn back the clock.  I'm just glad that I have two wonderful children and they are a big part of my life.
For this card, I used a stamp, a real stamp and ink from Hampton Art.  I dry embossed two of the papers.

You've been in my thoughts Angel with kitty

I have a friend who had to put her cat down and this is a difficult thing for all of us when our pets leave paw prints on our hearts.  So I made this card for her using a Mo Manning image called Angel with Kitten.  I outlined the wings with Sakura jelly glitter pen, and the purple cardstock is embossed with little flowers.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create and it is distressed with ink.
