A puppy to make you smile

Meet my granddaughter's new puppy, Cody. He's a mixed breed Chihuahua/Poodle. Waaaay too cute. Her dad (my son) bought him for her yesterday. She just loves him and he seems to love her a lot too.
He cried a lot for her to hold him. I told her that's the same thing babies do. He got a little car sick in my car yesterday but not too bad. I was afraid Scarlett was going to get sick too, but she was okay. Yay!
Don't you think he's cute?

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!

Have a great day,


Punched up card

What do you think of this funny card? I used a bunch of SU! punches to create the shapes.
Stamps: Boots and hat from the Wicked Cool stamp set (#120600).
The eyes are from the Oval large (#119855). I colored the blue iris part of the eye. The pupil is 1/2" circle punch (#119869), the eyelids are punched from the Scallop Oval Extra-Large (#119884) cut one in half, then snip the little eyelashes. The paper sorta curls up on its own. Weird, huh?
The Pumpkin is made using three 1-3/4" circles (#119850) with the Oval (#119855) centered over the three circles. I edged each shape with Soft Suede (#115657) ink pad.
On the boots... I stamped them two times, and cut out two of the ones going in the same direction so I could place them under the pumpkin.

Paper: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Ink: Stampin'Write markers, Soft Suede, Staz On white.
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, White Stampin' Pastels to create the fog around the pumpkin.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I've been playing for hours now in the Strawberry Studio. Hum... maybe I'll get more cards made. We'll see. (I keep leaning toward trying to organize something.)

Have a great day!


Because I Care card

This card was a total CASE from Tina at
When I saw her card I just knew I had to try it. Mine doesn't quite measure up to hers, but it was fun to make.
Stamps: Because I care (Level 1 Hostess set)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Stampin'Write markers, Basic Black classic ink pad, Crumb Cake classic ink pad.
Accessories: Basic black satin ribbon, Glue dots, brads from Designer Hardware Vintage Trinkets (too cute IRI), Snail adhesive, sponge
My mojo has been in hiding so it really helps to find a card I can CASE. Maybe the ol' mojo will find it's way back home. (I have ideas, they are just stuck and can't get out.)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog I really do appreciate it!

Have a great weekend!
