House Mouses picking apples




We finished 2 coats of paint on the kitchen and Dale had to run out to Sherwin Williams to pick up more so I had a bit of free time to make a card.  I used a fun apple picking image from the House Mouse Triple CD set.  Paper is from My Minds Eye.  Also used white ribbon, a red button tied on with twine and Scrapbook Adhesive dots to mount the image.

Some new pics of Doolin



I finished sewing new curtains for the kitchen and started painting the walls.  Looks like it's going to take 3 coats to cover over the old color completely.  UGH...   I won't have time to work on cards until it's finished, so instead of posting a card, I thought I would share some pics of our miniture poodle Doolin. The old groomer we used has left the shop, so Doolin had a new lady groom him.  She put these cute little bows on his ears, but they only lasted about 10 minutes after he got home.

Happy Fall




This cute little gal is from Great Impressions.  I colored her with Copic markers, then cut out the image and border with Nestabilities dies.  Stitched all layers with sewing machine.  Mounted image to card base with Scrapbook Adhesives dots.  Paper, ribbon and tag from my stash.  I used Sketch Saturday 327 as my inspiration but added the image above the border, the ribbon on the right side and a few glossy pebbles as accents.

Have a doggone great day













I need to restock my birthday card stash and thought these darling pups from Paper Pretties would be perfect to use.  I colored the scene with Prismacolor pencils and blended the colors with a eraser.  Designer paper is from the Notable pack by My Minds Eye.  Also used Spellbinders dies and EK Success punches.
