Hello! This week at Just A Scrappin', we were challenged to make a project featuring pets, and here's mine-

The papers are from DCWV Pet Stack, and the sentiment, puppy & Puppy die are all from Paper Smooches Woofers & Tweeters sets. Isn't that puppy just adorable? The fibers are a dark brown chenille from my stash.

I left the inside blank so I could use it for a birthday, new pet, valentine, or whatever tickles my fancy!

Thanks for looking!

Warning-Profanity here!

If you are offended by bad language, then please don't go any further.

I made these cards for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Aniversary Challenge, where you can pick from any previous challenge theme.

I picked P for Profanity-so if you get offended, don't say I didn't warn you!

I also made them for my Mom's foot doctor, who has an awesome sense of humor!

I bought the rubber stamps at Unity Stamp Co. a few months back-and boy, did a bunch of people get their undies in a wad! Me, I worked at a high school for 30 years so I'm not easily offended! The paper is Avery Elle Brights, ribbon by American Crafts, and images are from The Graphics Fairy.

I gotta know what you think!

SoSS-1 year Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! You don't know how much I love you-you're perfect for the humor I love to spread! Here is a card I'm entering into the "Choose a Challenge"-mine is U for Unused!

I had been waiting for the perfect image to use the stamp on. I got this and about 5 others from over a year ago and hadn't used a single one! The brand is Creative Vision, and the image is from somewhere over the internet.

Check out SoSS and enter the challenge-it's fun!

JAS- Sympathy

Sometimes we need sympathy cards. We don't ever want to use them, but that's not an option, is it? So here is a simple and I like to think, elegant sympathy card-

The paper is from the Black Currant DCWV stack. I used cream ribbon from the $1 store, and stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder.

This card ended up going to a friend who's father passed away. It's always good to have a couple of sympathy cards on hand for such an occasion

Thanks for joining me today!.

Kitty Bee Designs Scraps Challenge

Welcome! It's so nice to be back after the Christmas holidays, and Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge starts today. We want you to use scraps to make your project. This months sponsor is the Doodle Pantry, and I found out that they sell SVG files too, in addition to some of the cutest digis ever! Here is my card-

I had no problem using the Lori McCroskey Card 5 SVG-simple and straight forward. The image is Happy Birdie B , which is free with any purchase. In fact, if you make a purchase you can add as many images from the "free with purchase" page as you want. Many have digital papers too!

Since all the papers came out of my scrap files, I have no idea of the manufacturers. Even the pale green rhinestones are leftovers, and they were the last two of that color. I did color the image with colored pencils (Prismacolor).

Be sure to enter the challenge at Aloha Fridays-winner will get a gift certificate to Doodle Pantry!

Just a Scrappin' Die Card

Hello! I'm combining DT projects this week. This card is a project for Just a Scrappin' and Die Cut Diva's today, using an Elizabeth Craft Design penguin die.

I also used Lawn Fawn Hillside Stitched Dies, Darice snowflake embossing folder and some Wink of Stella clear to highlight the snowflakes and the snowy hills. All the paper I used is out of my remnants.

Thanks for joining me today!
