Miss You


WT855 - Post card

I found this fun designer paper in my stash with a post card image on it and cut the layers.

I used up a blue punched lace layer and ribbon from my stash and added a sentiment.

Welcome Pup


FS754 - This weeks incredibly talented Featured Stamper is Rita, better known around here as Stamping Servant. I have gone back in her gallery to a Teapot Tuesday card she made for my Uncle Neil HERE.

I was so touched by her wonderful card for him. He was so moved by all the wonderful cards from SCS and my aunt still has them and looks through them.

I loved the cute pup on the front and made another card for my pet donations.

For the background I used aluminum foil and embossed it. I then die cut the pieces of the dog and layered.

F4A593 - Red, White & Blie

MIX440 - Stars and Stripes

I needed to make a red, white and blue quilt birthday card for my MIL's friend. Her birthday is 7/4 and she loves patriotic colors.

I grabbed a bunch of my red, white and blue papers and created this layout with the different papers. Stamped the birthday sentiment and then added dash marks with a black marker and white gel pen.

Rainbow Bridge


WT851 - Use Water in some way

I have a stack of strips of water color paper and thought it would be a great rainbow edge for some pet sympathy cards.

I used distress inks and added water to a paint brush and brushed on the color.

Once dry I added the paw prints and the black card stock to trim the edge and finished with the sentiment.
