Get Well Dog

 Hello Everyone,

This is a card I made for a friend whose dog has been having some health problems.  The dog did end up in a cone.  So........I thought this stamp was just perfect to send to Dakota (the dog).  

Dog stamp from Bunches of Fun by Stampin' Up.  Sentiments are from an older My Favorite Things stamp set.
Dog is colored with a Ranger Distress Marker.

Inside of card:

So just a fun kind of card to make and send for a friend. It was appreciated.  Dakota smelled it many times.  LOL  
See you next time with something crafty.  I have to get busy on my Christmas cards!!  
Hope your day is lovely.

Thanksgiving Cards with Truck

 Hello Everyone,

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!  

And I would also like to share the cards I made to send out to family and friends for Thanksgiving.  

I used a die cut truck set from Spellbinders called "Truckin Through the Seasons". The pumpkins are also part of the die cut set.

I actually had to go to the store to get fall themed papers!  I have let my decorative paper stash dwindle down to practically nothing.  LOL. The leaf paper I found at Hobby Lobby. 

The sentiments are stamps I have had for years from various companies.  

I die cut the trucks and pumpkins from various colors of cardstock.  And placed them on die cut circles. 

One version of the inside: Also added one pumpkin.

Changed the background paper on the following versions.

This is the second version of the inside of card. 

    So glad you stopped by today!  Hope your Thanksgiving is full of great things like yummy food and plenty to be thankful for!

Mason Jar Wedding Card

 Hello Everyone!  

I wanted to share this wedding card I made for my BFF, Sandie. The card is for a wedding she attended. This was another card where I used elements from the shower and wedding invitations as inspiration.  

The Mason Jar stamp and die cut is from the Greetery

The flowers are from a Stampin' Up set called Sending Smiles

I used watercolor paper behind the jar. I used inks and a wet paint brush to color the water-colored background. 

Also added a layer of gold paper.  

Inside of card:


Love how this card turned out.  I spent quite a bit of time on this one.  So glad you stopped by today.  Next time I will post my Thanksgiving cards.  Hope you have a lovely day.
