We have been watching our zoeie for awhile now. Probably at least a month off and on. And that is what I care about most. We are now lifting her up and supporting her until she can stand. She does, but it is terribly hard for her. The last two days she has slept and she isn't eating dog food. I guess I didn't say she is a dog. Thats because she has been family for almost 15 years.
|Ok She looks fine here. She is, She is chasing a 'goodie' so I can get a picture!|
Zoie, a sweet sweet girl. July 2016. We take care of her as long as it takes.
Wait! can't sign off without Miss Gracie.

Really really hot outside. 112. Just got back from the store, and have to leave again! Oh no! In-between my 'fanning myself' and my 'iced coffee', I will share a couple cards.
|First, this easy die. It is from Ultimate crafts. Just cut and add a layer and a base! So quick.|
|Chubby Chums Selfie. I got the idea from Splitcoast stampers weekly Inkling! So Cute.|

The camera disc is full! That's alot of pictures! I wanted to share just a couple card ideas that I did over the last couple years before I put this 'disc' in a proper (safe) place.
Image or stamp is from Our Daily Bread Designs. And the die cut is Spellbinders Modern stationary. These made nice 'guy' cards.
This is a favorite! I still actually have the card. Sometimes you just want to keep it, as it feels like a work of art. Or you just want to preserve the idea!
Maybe I'll add more tomorrow. In the meantime if I repeat anything, please excuse me!
Thanks for looking!

|Loved making these cards! Been so long since I've played with my inks & sponge daubbers. It is an easy technique, one that evolved after looking at the Penny Black blog. Micheline Jourdain is the talented artist. This is her flicker page. First I hope she doesn't mind my 'linking it', second I hope you enjoy her cards. They are wonderful. https://www.flickr.com/photos/127649981@N02/|
I used the Penny Black wood-mounted 'poppies' stamps and the Enamour Set of flowers. The bold sentiments are from a Just Rite stamp set. The 'just because' is an old stamp from Treasure Cay.
Thanks for looking today,

Here is some gold and glitz! I needed something cheery today too. So I made these two cards way way ahead of time! Usually my family doesn't pay attention to my blog. Hopefully they won't look for about 4 months!
|I used an 'older Sizzix die. It is one of the thicker black dies. Love it when I use something I haven't used for a long time! The above 'picture' is the back of the first card. I probably will add some birthday verse later.|
I really had fun with these. Love the mirrored gold and black combo. I just ran out of birthdays or I would have made more!Thanks for looking!
