Toadily in Love

This is my entry in the Robyn's Fetish Valentine Challenge over at TCC. These toadies & that sentiment really appeal to my somewhat warped sense of humor! The patterned paper is from Doddle Bug (red & white hearts) & Basic Grey (background); cardstock is Prism & the bling hearts are from the dollar store. The toad image is from Robyn's Fetish. I colored it using my prismacolor pencils & OMS then glittered the heart with Glamour Dust.
Other challenges I would like to enter:
Crafters Companion
Poodles Parlour
Simply Create Too
Wags & Whiskers
Ruby's Rainbow
Scrapbook Sisters

Sunflower hasty notes

I made this set of hasty notes in their own adorable little box for an entry in our local craft show...a craft featuring sunflowers....& it won 1st. prize. I got the idea from Splitcoast Stampers. The papers are SEI with Bazzill cardstock; the sunflower stamp is from the dollar store & the cute little sentiments & squiggles are from  the "Flutterfly Friends" set from Stampendous. Hope you like it!

Snow Dog

This is one of my favorite pictures of my black lab Morgan. Unlike most humans, Morgan LOVES the snow! She rolls around like she is doing snow angels or sticks her nose down deep in it as if she is searching for buried treasure! I finished this page on Sunday & learned the next day that my beautiful Morgan has bladder cancer. My heart is aching as I post this picture as a tribute to one great dog who has enriched my life for over 12 yrs. Thanks my Morgs! I love you!

Happy Birthday

This is a card I made for the "birthday challenge" over at TCC. The image is "Buttons the clown" from Digital Delights by Louby Lou. The patterned paper is from Fancy Pants & cardstock is Bazzill. The birthday sentiment is Penny Black & of course there is the Stickles that I love so much! I am sending this card to my little great-nephew who is turning 3yrs. old next month.

This is my first attempt at making ATC's. These were made for a swap over at TCC. The only restriction was that the card had to feature a poinsettia. This image is an Inkadinkado stamp. Sorry, I don't know what the papers are (I cut the bottoms off my papers when I get them so they will fit in my case) The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils & Gamsol & the center is highlighted with good old Stickles. The bling is from Dollarama. Thanks for stopping by!

It's Winter!

Winter has arrived here in Lac Du Bonnet! Yesterday it was beautiful outside (+8C) & today it is cold & miserable! Snowing like crazy.....brrr! It's a good day to hide out in the craftroom, so I think that is exactly what I will do. I'm working on several things at the moment....finishing up some ATC's for a swap (I've never made ATC's before) then there is a birthday card challenge & a valentine challenge. I got the cutest "froggie" image for the valentine card....can't wait to use it.
Happy crafting!
