8/26/13 National Dog Day

Welcome, welcome, everyone and especially dog lovers .  I am a dog lover.  I have had many dogs in my life, since I married and while raising my kids.  My last precious little pet was a Lhasa Apso named Sushie. ( For some strange reason we named all our animals after foods.) She was my precious baby for about 14 years before she was hit by a car.  I was devastated...... it took me a while to get over her lose.  My husband bought her for me when I was going thru the "Empty Nest Syndrome."  Can you ladies relate?  My 2 sons were grown and out of the house, so I replaced that feeling with love for a gorgeous little bundle of fur!  It really worked!  Here's a photo of her fully grown:

I am a member of a Design Team at  I chose as my challenge theme for this week:  National Dog Day. 
To celebrate that day the challenge was to make a card or project including an image of a dog in the project.  So far, over at we are getting some cute response.  You dog loves out there should go over and submit an entry.  We'd love to see what yuh' got!

Here's my inspirational entry for this week.  I hope it inspires you!

Latice Card

Hello fellow crafters,

I was just playing around on the computer yesterday and decided to watch some you tube videos.
What did I do that for?  No, but really, I enjoyed it.  I made a card that I have never tried before.  Everybody has probably seen it but me!

It's called the Latice Card by Valita.  Here is the You tube video;

I thought I did a pretty good job.  The 2 inner flowers were made by me. The 2 outer flowers are from Jolee's Boutique.  The larger leaves come from Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia dies.

Give me your opinion!  Thanks for stopping by!

Monochromatic card for Outlawz challenge

Afternoon everyone,  I am getting so lazy about posting on my Blog.  I need to get on the ball!  Right?  Some of my projects I make I'm not so pleased with, so I don't post them. I guess others feel that way too.  Well I made this card and I liked it at first but then my feelings changed.  Tell me what you think about.  Our challenge was to make a monochromatic card using one color in different tones.  Here's what I came up with:

We didn't have to include an image, just a sentiment.  I chose the tan-brown color tones.
