Feel Better Soon

Pin It

Last week my DH asked me to make a card for his boss, errr…. his boss’ dog. The poor pup was hit by a car and originally was not given much of a chance to survive. Well, the little guy surprised everyone, including the vets, and not only survived but is doing really great.

I used the need for a card as an excuse to finally purchase an image from K ‘n K Designs. I always love Katlyn’s dog images but with haven’t had time to use them with DT commitments. It also gave me a chance to use some pet themed papers from Pebbles that I won from Paper Crafts Connection.

Once I had the image colored, I had a really hard time making the card. My mojo was missing. In the end, I was inspired by the design of this card from Amy Rohl.

That’s it for today. I hope you will take a minute to check out the K ‘n K Designs shop.

So sweet! Love how you colored the dog and I love your background sky! If this is what a card with missing mojo looks like, I'm even more impressed!

That is the cutest card! I'm an animal lover too, so I'm glad the pup is doing well.

I think I need to look for more stamps like that. It would really cheer any pet owner to know that someone is thinking of them when their pet is ill or hurt.

You did a beautiful job on the card!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
