Police Dogs

Hello! I know, I've been absent from my blog far too long but I continue to fight the lack of mojo and enthusiasm. So I decided to take a summer break from blogging. I'm hoping that by autumn, I'll be immersed with creativity and my mojo tank refilled. So until then, I leave you with a card I created featuring another Two Lips Stamps, Police Dogs. Have a wonderful fun filled summer and be safe! See you in the fall!

Two Lips Stamps

Hello! I have great news to share today, I recently discovered Two Lips Stamps, a company that is equal parts of truthfulness and humor! You know my funny side is always showing. I love a good giggle! To create my card I used Recipe Read from Two Lips and the chubby chef from Birdie Brown Recipe for Happiness from My Favorite Things Stamps.  I encourage you to visit Two Lips Stamps but be prepared stay awhile and laugh!  In case you are wondering, yes indeed, cookbooks are definitely works of science fiction written in a language that is totally foreign to me!

You're Stinkin'

Yup,  stinkin' alright, stinkin' fabulous, amazing, awesome, to name a few of the adjectives that appear on the inside of the card to remind the recipients that's what I think of them! The cute stamp set is Stinkin' Cute from Lawn Fawn and it's as close as I ever want to get to a skunk!

Thinking of you

Glad to be back today with a card featuring the Simon Says Stamp Spring Flower stamp set.  I love the color combination,  something maybe Mother Nature might consider!

Hello! Hello!

Hello friends! I am alive and well and hoping you are the same! It seems my love affair with blogging has waned and I'm finding it difficult to get back into the grove of frequent posting. I don't know if its a permanent state of mind or maybe a passing condition.  Nevertheless, I've been making cards and I am here today to share a birthday card I made using two stamp sets from Simon Say Stamp, Cuddly Critters and Cuddly Critters Accessories.

Sadness has once again filled my heart. On April 23, my beautiful Rozie crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge. She was 3 months shy of being 13 years old. I am so fortunate to have shared my life with her, we had a long lovely friendship. She will always be in my heart and forever missed.

You're Souper Cool

I hope you are enjoying a lovely warm day to celebrate Palm Sunday and the first day of spring, however, my card has absolutely nothing to do with either occasion! My card today features one of the adorable chefs from the BB Recipe for Happiness by My Favorite Things. Wishing a chef, any chef, comes knocking on my door, I just hate, hate, HATE to cook!

Snowman and Cocoa

Today's card is made compliments of From the Heart Stamps for participating in The Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge. This month the cute image is Snowman and Cocoa! Although I think the image is adorable, I personally am fed up with snow!

I Love You

Today's card I made to play along in the Lawnscaping Sending Love Challenge, use hearts or love sentiment. I think I have both requirements covered. To create my card I used the Scripty Sayings stamp set for the sentiment along with Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables, Hearts, Stitched Journaling Card, and Stitched Scalloped Borders Lawn Cuts.  Hearts and love, perfect valentine!

Love is a Four-Legged Word

I made today's card to play along in the Inky Paws Challenge #28 - Love Theme. To create the card I used stamps from the Newton's Antics and Fetching Friendship sets from Newton's Nook Designs.  The perfect Valentine for animal lovers.

Whale You Be Mine?

Just a quick fly by to let you know I am alive and well and survived the blizzard of 2016! According to the National Weather Service, it is the largest snowfall on record for our town since they started recording amounts. Well gee, that's great but could we go back to the normal dustings or a couple inches of snow at a time that we're used to!

Below is a picture of my picnic table taken around 10:30 yesterday morning, Saturday, January 23, 2016. We continued to have a steady snowfall well into the evening!  With so much snow it was difficult for this senior with 3 beautiful senior goldens and one much smaller cockapoo to manage potty breaks. But I managed to clean a very small area for them and they were happy going outside one at a time to do what they had to and then making a mad dash back into the house.  Henry, our silly cat, was totally fed up and ticked off so he spent his time doing what he does best, sleeping!
And now the clean up begins!

Hey Chickie

I know I should be working on valentines, but I'm not.  Instead, I started playing with stamp sets from The Alley Ways Stamps. I am so sad they closed, I love the humor they brought to our world.

Have an Ice Day

Hello, hello! When I decided to take a blog break during the holidays, I hadn't planned on it lasting so long but it did! I'm back now and willing to go but I'm still lacking creativity! Our weather has been so up and down maybe that has something to do with my inability to design, or it could be sheer laziness! 

I made today's card to enter the Lawnscaping Challenge - Winter Wonderland, a great source of inspiration. Stamps from Critters in the Arctic and Critters in the Snow sets were used along with the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables Lawn Cuts.
