A Tuesday in May!

May has been super busy, so I am afraid that I haven't been able to share this months photos! Busy weekends with family from out of state. Really nice visit with Al & Betty. They have a timeshare at Tahiti village, and one Saturday we got to hang out at the 'lazy river'. Really pretty! Al & Allen's sister, Alice came in from Idaho. She stayed at the Tahiti village, and we were able to visit with her too. I wish I had taken pictures! Al & Betty come about every two years, so yes, this was a treat!

Then last week I started with this cold. Ugh. It is hanging in there, but better today (day 5).  No cards for part of the week . No photos, just whining. I do that well! Here are just a couple  miscellaneous cards I made with the YOU die. Not sure where I got it. Just don't use the alphabets very often.


 

This last shaker card was done with designer paper only. Fun!

 

Thanks for looking today!

More Doggies!

There is more 'Doggie' stuff this morning! Here are a few cards using a Inky  Antics stamp set. No pictures Gracie today, just some cute shaker cards!

 

 

 

 

Just FYI, the frame for all the cards is a 'My favorite things die' and the word "Its a dogs life' is a Penny Black Stamp. The other words are in the Inky Antics set.

Gracie

I already posted today, but I was in my pictures and just had to share my Gracie girl. If you look at these pictures in sequence it is crazy funny! This is a routine that she does every night. Yes, she starts with the 'upside rollover', then she looks to see if you are looking. She loves it if I laugh. That just makes her repeat the rolling and looking..... Here we go

Her ear covers her eyes, but she is waiting for the 'laugh'. It must not have come fast enough as there she goes again! The second roll. There is a video of this. She kicks her little legs and barks. You have to notice!


 


Ready for the her 'tiny bite'! Gracie is 8 1/2 years old. This was taken about 5 months ago. Yet I have pictures of her doing this when she was 1 year old or less, and 25 pounds lighter!! We have laughed everyday for 8 1/2 years. My goofy goofy Gracie!

Scribble Flowers in April!

The post title makes no sense, but that is what I am sharing today. Old stamps from My Favorite Things Stamps. No offense to MFT, the good news is that these Scribble stamps are a classic! Here are some really simple ideas!






This is a retro frame background that I haven't used in awhile. The other backgrounds are embossed card bases that I had stashed! Stashed for a long time. You know how we are when we get a new embossing folder, got to run it through and admire it! Pretty soon you have a BIG stash of lovely backgrounds that you forget you have.
Thanks for looking today!

Wednesday

It is the middle of April and we go between the heater and the air-conditioner already! Wow, the heater is on now, early AM), but later we may turn on the air! It is supposed to be 89 degrees here Sunday. Pretty early in the season for the air conditioning. Today I want to share some card ideas using the new Our Daily Bread Designs stamp set. It is named God quotes 2.



Used the new 'corner dies' from Spellbinders Tiara Rondele set. Love how they wrap around the corner


I know, I love the little tiny flowers and the silk ribbons!
The last two cards feature the new Spellbinders 'Lovely lilac" . The corner flower.

 

Thanks for looking!

Wednesday April 2018

Today I have just a couple cards to show. The first is made with the 'starry night' die from Penny Black. Add to that the puppy from the 'Good times' stamp set. I actually got the idea for this from the Penny Black blog. Couldn't help myself! Soo cute! For the second card I used the doggies from the same 'Good times' set for a (Yes) shaker card!



Next is my Stampendous 'Puddle ducks' left from Easter. Cute
