Puppy Love

Happy Valentines Day!

Can You Digi It? is celebrating Valentines Day with a challenge that calls for us to show our love of puppies. The store has some awesome digi images of puppies - so many that I had a tough time deciding which image to use. I decided to try Sleeping Frenchie by Carlas Creatures. Isn't this little puppy so cute? I used some digital paper that was free from Squigglefly
for my background. I wanted a sentiment that expressed how special dogs are to us, and I remembered SARK has some really touching quotes about dogs (I love how she views life). I printed out the quote when I printed out my digital pawprint backgroud and my puppy image. To finish up, I added a heart button and some twine. What a fun card to make.

Check out the puppy images in the store. If you are new to digital stamps, there is even a free puppy image in the store! Bu if you really love dogs, you will want to check out the dog images! There are dogs with hearts and purses, Sharpeis, a bunch of Boston Terriers, Rottweiler, and so much more. Some of the images are already shaded like the one I used (I didn't have to do a thing to it). Can you tell I love the dog images???

I have had some awesome dogs in my life - some were mine, some were my parents', and even one belongs to my daughters' boyfriend (he has a bulldog named Chewy that weighs a 100 lbs, slobbers everywhere, and I wish he was mine!!!). I don't have any dogs as my husband is so allergic to pet dander, so I have to visit other people's puppies to get some puppy love (good thing my parents live next door). I do have a cow named Allie (yes, I name my cows after my favorite people) that lets me pet her and she comes when I call her - but she only does it if I have a hand full of cow treats.

Hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day! Love can take many forms - it can be romantic love, the love of a friend, the love you have for family, and even puppy love (or cows if you don't have puppies). Hugz!!!

  5. Nancy, such a sweet puppy, but then what baby anything isn't sweet! Love the background too. Your Allie is stunning, with mud on her face and in a beautiful formal dress, what a beautiful color on her too, that's the dress, not the mud!!

    Hugs

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
