We made a new addition to our family on Sunday, May 17, 2015.  Meet Fergus Bobby MaGee. He's pure Airedale Terrier and he has warmed the cockles of my heart. Although he is probably getting pretty tired of hearing me saying "NO!"  In the van on our way home to Texas with our little Fergus.

Checking out his new yard.

Fergus and his dad.

Mom, stop tying your shoes and pay attention to me.

Another shoe?

Watching Mom do all her getting dressed business in the morning is very tiresome on a puppy.

Freshly Made 186

My card for Freshly Made Challenge #186. Die is from Tim Holtz. DSP and whisper white cs are from Stampin' Up! Die cut piece is water color paper with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Paint in Seedless Preserves. Butterfly is from a SU! set and he is stamped in versa mark and black ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I colored his with Copics. The sentiment is a set that is loose in my stash. I don't know who makes it. Between the watercolor die cut and the DSP is a piece of clear acrylic.
Below is the inspiration from Freshly Made.
Have a blessed day!

Curtain Call Totally Tassel

My Godson, Stephen is graduating today from Nichols State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana! This is the card I made for him. It's a gatefold card and the little owl has a repositional adhesive dot behind it for the closure. He was so much fun to make! I think Stephen is going to like it very much. The award is a stamp from Simon Says Stamp set You Can Do Anything. this card has been entered into the Curtain Call Challenge - Totally Tassel
Below is the inspiration for my card.

Play Date with D & L

The first card you see below is actually the last one I made on our play date. But I am falling hard for Brushos. This card has heavy and light sprinkles of brushos in Turquoise and Purple. The background I sprinkled heavily the Brusho powders and spritzed with water. Then the flowers were done on a separate piece of cs, lightly sprinkled with Brushos then spritzed. The stems and leaves are from my SU Build a Bird punch. I just used Rangers liquid pearls to add the veins.
The next two cards were designed by Lorna on the left and Deb on the right. Believe it or not, Lorna little patchwork pinwheel is made up of little squares! So cute! Deb's card was created using dies, papers and stamps from a kit she brought along for us to play with. Love both of these cards!

The next two cards were designed by Lorna on the left and me on the right. Lorna used Stampin' Up! stamps and inks to create this super spring look! We added Wink of Stella to the flower petals and little rhinestones t…


Random Act of Kindness.

I made this card to send to a 4 y.o. boy with Leukemia. Just a little bit of encouragment.
The face of the card represents the sky and the globe with a plane flying overhead. The plane is on a button and rides in a trough between the center circle and the frame. The plane can fly in a complete circle around the globe.

 On the inside of the card I used a piece of bright yellow cs to keep it light and cheerful. The sentiment reads "Hope is a place somewhere between takeoff and landing."

"I hope today you are having a terrific day!"

Do something KIND for someone today!

Curtain Call Travel On

Today, I played along with Curtain Call Challenge to Travel On. I really love the old car stamp from Penny Black and I added some butterfly postage from C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps. I water colored the image with Gelatos from Faber Castell. 
Below is the inspiration piece for the challenge.

Muse Challenge #116

The sample card inspired me by the colors and the layout. I chose to sprinkle Brusho onto my cs and spritz with water to get the multiple colors.I found that if I sprinkled the yellow then the leaf green and finally the turquoise I got a similar gradation in color as the Muse sample. I felt the chalkboard cs would be a close representation of the circle element on the Muse sample.
I have been experimenting a lot lately with Brushos, Bistre and Irredescent Creative Mediums. I love the surprises I've had with each element. Today is the first time I have used the Brushos and Creative Medium together. I am pretty content with the turn out. Oh and lets not forget those cardboard stencils from Faber Castell!

The products used to create this card:

SU! Very Vanilla and Chalk Board CS
Unity Stamp Co set Everything Wonderful
Versa Mark Ink
Ranger Seafoam White EP
Imagine Crafts Creative Medium Turquoise Irredescent
Faber Castell Stencil
ColourCraft Brusho Paint Crystals…
