Live, Dance, Laugh

Hello, hope you are having a good weekend so far. Thank you for your kind words about our dog Lady. She is doing much better now. She is walking almost as well as before the stroke, she wants to go out everyday to walk, and she seems happy. Makes me so happy!

Well, my mojo is still missing :( But I did receive some beautiful stamps from Jackie over at Inky Antics, that I couldn't wait to get inky. Thank you again Jackie! This set is the Brushed Calligraphy #2 set, I LOVE it! I made a couple of note cards. For the first, I stamped the beautiful flower image in grey and then painted it in with some Twinkling H2O's to keep it soft.

On my second card, embossed the image and sentiment in white on kraft and colored it in with Prisma pencils.

Ok, that's it for me today, hoping to get a little crafty time in this weekend. Thanks for stopping by! :)

You're so Tweet

Hi there! It's been awhile since I've posted. Just haven't had any mojo :( We have had so much stuff going on, just doesn't seem like things are ever going to look up, but we are trying to stay positive. And to top everything off, our 14 year old dog Lady had a stroke last week. We were told that a stroke for dogs is not as debilitating as it is for humans. And that most dogs usually recover their motor functions and movement control within several weeks. It was so sad, she couldn't walk and we had to carry her outside to do her business, and she is heavy, a Lab/Chow mix. She is up and walking around now, hobbling really, but she wanted to go out when the two little ones went out today. Her tail is wagging, her head is not tilted anymore, and she looks happier. I'm so happy for her.

Anyway, I made a card! I wanted to play along with this week's sketch over at My Favorite Things, it's a quick and easy one. I colored the Pure Innocence image with Prisma pencils, and used a MFT Doily Die. Hoping my mojo will return soon. Thanks so much for visiting me, have a great day. :)

Hi! I hope you are having a lovely weekend so far. I just wanted to quickly pop in with a card using this week's sketch from My Favorite Things. I still had these beautiful MME papers out from my card last week, and just had to use them. I love these sweet Pure Innocence images, and I just love to paper piece their little dresses, reminds me of playing with paper dolls.

I am also adding my card to Pumpkin Spice's show your style, you have a chance to win this month's card kit. Pumpkin Spice is where I order my papers, check out the info here.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great weekend. :)

What's cookin' good lookin'?

Hi! Happy Friday to you! I was digging through some papers and came across this fun pattern. It made me think of a table cloth, then I thought of this cute guy from There She Goes Stamps that has not seen ink yet. The challenge at the TSG blog this week is paper piecing, so I pieced his little tie to match the background and his pants, he needed real chef pants, lol. He is popped up on foam dots, and just added a fun border. That's it for me today, thank you so much for stopping by for a little look, have a great weekend. :)
