Cute Dogs!

I made this card for the Squigglefly SFS3412 Falling Into Fall challenge and I got my inspiration from the SCS Featured Stamper Carolina Little. I love this Lynne Stansbery image - hard to find a cuter image!

In fact, I love it soooo much that I used it to make a birthday card for my sweet DD Crystal who will be turning 22 this week (so hard to believe). She loves this image too (reminds her of a dog who stole her heart). Since the image is of a boy, I tried to "girl up" the card with some flowers. I know she will love it. That girl grabbed my heart before she was born, but I used her birthdate on the card.

I am entering this one in the Dilly Beans Challenge this week which is Black, White and one other color (mine is kraft).



  1. Fabulously done! Love the easel card adn teh flowers you added are perfect. Beautiful mix of dies on the first one and the heart and seam binding are great touches. Sure she will love them!

  2. Wonderful card Nancy, the image is adorable and the sentiment is so true, I like the flowers and the colours.

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

T is For Tornadoes and Tasteless Coffee

 Hello Friends, The past two weeks Central Alabama has been through two giant storms.  They produced large tornadoes that came within a few miles of our home.  Luckily, we had no damage, but many people around us had lots of damage.  One family friend lost her Son. His truck hydroplaned during one storm and he ran into a tree - he was still in High School.  So many sad stories and lots of damage. When we were hiding in our safe place last week, I started shivering and could not get warm.  I figured it was from the stress of the storm or the power being out.  I wrapped up in blankets but it didn't help.  When the power came back on, I turned the heat up high, put on several more blankets and drank some hot chicken soup.  Hot tea. A shot of fireball whiskey.  Nothing helped.  Turns out, I had COVID.  I am doing much better now and that was really the worse that I felt.  Lucky again.  I am visiting with my friends at T-day (over at Elizabeth's Blog) and here is my ticket - a fun l

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This
