Meljen's Designs - Challenge 48 - U R Such an Animal

How much for that doggy in the window? Doesn't he look like he is trying his best to be totally adorable so he gets picked to go home?

Totally adorable card, Wendy! That new stamp just makes me smile. Love, love the hedgehog one in the new release, a former hedgehog owner, I'm pretty partial to them. :)
I love the papers you chose and all your layering is fabulous. Love the added dimension from the embossing and the notebook edged punch, and the baker's twine and brads add a great finishing touch.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
