Pink, Purple & Green, But Still Out of the Blue!

I bought these stickers a long time ago, and had only used a couple out of the package. Somehow, the idea struck me to pull them out again and use them. I was pretty happy with the result. Funny how an idea just hits you out of the blue like that! The embellie and the cs are all from the dollar store. The flowers are coloured with pencil crayons and gamsol. TFL

Butterflies and a Rose

I made this card just for fun and ended up using it for a bridal shower. I had some wrapping paper that surprisingly matched it quite well. The butterflies are embossed with the CB textiles folder, and the image is coloured with pencil crayons and gamsol. TFL!

Hershey - Our New Puppy!

Introducing Hershey, our new Shih Tzu puppy. This picture was taken the day we brought her home when she was 7 1/2 weeks old. She was only 2 1/2 pounds and will grow to be about 14-16 pounds. Our four kids as well as myself were just ecstatic to have a new dog. My DH is happy too, just not as excited as the rest of us as he didn't grow up with a dog. He is gradually becoming quite fond of her though.
Here I am with our new little rascal! The pictures make her look black and white, but she is actually tri-colour. Her face mask and the tips of her ears are black, but the coloured patches are brown with black streaks. One side has more colour than the other. The white side has a big brown spot on it and it looks like a Hershey kiss or a chocolate chip.
The Shih tzu is a very social breed as it was originally bred to be a lap dog for Tibetan/Chinese royalty. They typically love everyone and have to be near you all the time as this picture clearly shows. Hershey's new favourite spot is right at my feet where I work!

We definitely picked a smart one. It took me only 3 days to teach Hershey to sit, stay, come, shake a paw, lay down, and speak! My daughter has since taught her to sit pretty. It's amazing how quickly they learn when they are so young. Now if we can get her totally toilet trained we'll be all set!

Finally - A Chance to Post Some Cards!

I can't believe it has been more than a month since I have had the time to post something! I'm going to make up for lost time though, because I have lots of items to post over the next few days. I have been a very busy girl!

This card, to start with is a spring card I whipped up quickly for a party my son went to back in the summer. He needed a card for his friend's birthday. Nothing fancy, just a quick and simple card. Gotta love those once in awhile!
