Mans Best Friend LO

Hey Yall,

Boy oh Boy have I had a busy holiday weekend.  Sheesh I am seriously ready to RELAX!!!  LOL  I sure hope everyone is doing well.

Here is a LO I made about my boyfriends dog.  NO, I don't have a dog or a cat so I though this would be fun to do. 

Im telling Yall this dog is a spoiled baby but the BEST dog I have ever meet.  He doesn't bark (only when he needs to of course), dig, lick, jump and chase things.  How AWESOME is that!!!

* Four Legged Friends cricut lite cartridge
* paw - 3 inches
* phrase - 3.5 inches
* background paper - "Paper House Production"
* all other papers - Recollections (not sure the names)
* grey letters - chip board "Text" Thickers
* little black letter - Recollections
* Ink - Tim Holtz "Brushed Corduroy" destress ink
* pen - white jelly roll pen
* boarder punch - EK Success "Bracket Edger Punch"

I hope Yall like it!!

Little but sweet

Hey Yall,

Here is a cute little card that says it all....just in time for heart day!

The paper is Kraft paper.  I embossed it with cuttlebugs "Floral Fantasy" embossing folder.  I inked over the embossed parts with white ink and doddled with a white jelly roll pen. (I love white and brown together) The "love" is from Fiskars "Family" stamp set. The corner was rounded but a Fiskars corner rounder but I am not sure the name. (its a 4 in one punch) Unfortunately I do know know the name of the link stickers I used either.  I had them in my stash from 2 years ago.  SORRY!!!

Don't forget I still have two giveaways going until Friday, Feb. 10.

I hope Yall like it!

A challenge for myself

Hey Yall,

I though I would challenge myself in making my next layout a little different.  I wanted to look outside the box and try using colors I wouldn't normally use together. Such as colors that do not match.
**look at the right hand side bar for a giveaway!!

Here is what I came up with...

The base paper is October Afternoon "Hot Lunch" collections.  The yellow base paper is a no name 12 x12 sheet.  The boarder punch is from EK Success...don't know name.  The brown and white polka dot paper is from Jillibean Soup "Egg Drop Soup" line.  The clear circle paper...not sure name I found in my scraps.  All the big letters are "Thickers" and the small ones are from the dollar spot at Target.  I inked the edges with Tim Holtz "Brushed Corduroy" distress ink.

I hope Yall like it and challenge your self the same!!
