A Whole Bunch of "Who Knows"!

     As I have said a zillion times before, I have so many unmounted stamps that I have no clue of the maker.  This was a huge ebay buy from years ago.  I like to give credit, but I am at a loss when I use these stamps.  The unmounted's include the bowl with scene, the sea horse, and the school of fish in the background.  The sentiment is digital and cut out by hand.  The embellishment are burlap and clear Dew Drops, Mounting foam and designer paper from my scrap bin, finish this project.  I just thought it was too pretty not to share.

     I will take this card over to Pixie's Snippets Playground #243, where it is snippets all the time!

     On not such a happy note, can I please ask for prayers for our 8 1/2 yr. old Black Lab, Jessie Girl.  She had a cancer diagnosis yesterday and will be facing surgery very soon.  She is such a sweet girl and was an absolute angel while they poked and prodded.

True Friend

     Today I have a card that was created with a Penny Black kitty image given to me by a friend.  I decided it would best be used to create a friendship card.  I have been working hard and using things I have been hoarding in my craft space.  This card also includes a background I created using up some scraps of glossy paper.  It uses the baby wipe and re-inker technique.  I made them in all different colors while I was t it.  I have a heart doily, some enamel dots as embellishment.  I honestly do not remember where the sentiment is from.  There is also some sponging and coloring was done with Copic Markers.

     I would like to take this over to Pixie's Snippets Playground #242, where it is snippets all the time.

     Well I am off into the steam bath to complete another day of work.  It is sure a lot of work stocking a new store!  since it is 3 to 4 x the size of our last one, I almost feel like a need a Segway or scooter to get around!  Have a great day!

SSS Wednesday Challenge

     This week the Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is called Let's Go Wild.  I decided to use a My Favorite Things paper pad and Pure Innocence stamp set called Wild About You.  My stitched oval dies are also from MFT.  She is colored in Copic Marker and sponged with light ink.  Two tiny enamel dots were used as embellishment.

     We are in the midst of what feels like a tropical heat wave, so I will slither out to work and back very quickly.  I recommend the least amount of movement possible!  Enjoy!

Going to the Dogs!

     Here is a quick post of a treat sack I made to give to a lady at work.  She really appreciates the things I make for her, since she is a fellow Doxie mom.  sometimes the simplest things put a smile on a persons face.

     It was created with the Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs, Distress Inks, and some of the oldest bits from my stash.  Scraps of ribbon, sticky back buttons, shipping tag, but the best is how I did the name.  I found these rub on tiny letters that you could use on brads.  Hence they are called Bradware...  who knows where they came from.

     Glad it is hump day, and hope everyone is perking along.  Thanks for the visit!

I Have Been a Slacker!

     I guess that just because my job has moved to a new location, I have been working extra hours,  and it has been hotter than the hinges of hell, I have no excuse for neglect.  Sorry.

     Today I have a card which I made quite some time ago, and never posted.  I really thought these stamps were adorable.  They are from Rubber Cafe and called Labrador Love.  I embossed the background with white powder.  The floral background is from Stamp Camp and was purchased at a show.  I added some squares turned on point for my background, and they are created with papers from Tim Holtz Shabby Chic collection.I found a piece of flocked ribbon, some twine, and a matching button as embellishments.  There is also stardust pen on the wings.

     My DGS was helping our Lab, Jessie cool off!  She was having no parts of Brian having that cooling pool to himself!

     I would like to take this card over to Pixie's Snippets Playground #240.  Since I gathered from every stash in the craft room, I think this might work!

     I will also take this over to MFP Stamp Challenge #31, which is anything goes.

     Have a great rest of the week, and thanks for stopping around.
