Well hello there. Long time no blog. Sorry bout that...

This is my entry for this week's Deconstructed sketch. My friend lost her beloved bulldog this week at the age of 10, so I made this for her. 

I used Lawn Fawn's Critters at the dog park stamp & lawn cuts for the dog, and Stampin Up stamps for the sun & sentiment (Trendy Trees & Teeny Tiny wishes, respectively). the pawprint paper is a digital file & all other paper is Stampin Up (MFT grass die).

This week's SOS challenge challenge is to not use patterned paper. So I'm taking some liberties & decided that glimmer paper is NOT DSP... and created this...

with this as the (obvious) inner sentiment...

cute, no? I love the final product, although cutting those "rays" was a huge PITA. gotta get one of them there starburst background stamps (like this, on my SSS wishlist...)

The bomb is just a circle cut in my Big Shot, with a a small strip of cs poking out. I then took some black & white twine & braided it for the fuse, and colored the end with my cherry cobbler marker. frayed the end a bit, et voilà! I was SO excited to realize you could color silver glimmer paper. gives a million new options (or at least 40ish... depends on how many markers you have, I guess....).

Dynamic Duos 47 / RCC80

Here is my entry for the current Dynamic Duos challenge (light aqua and cherry red) , as well as my first entry for this month's Ribbon Carousel challenge (showers and flowers)...

it's a bridal shower card for an old co-worker of mine who's getting married on a beach somewhere down south next month. When I'd seen I saw the sand castle on this card (thanks, Pinterest), it made me think of a wedding cake, and the card was then CASEd to fit the themes and switch it from a thank you to a shower card.

I used the new SU cloudy day embossing folder, and swiped my Illuminate pad across it to give a tad bit of shine (no, really) then used kraft for the sand & Soft Suede for the cake. A bit of red/white twine bow, et voilà!

SOS93 - Sass & snark

Aaah, sass, snark & LOL - some of my favorite things. And they're also the focus of this week's SOS Challenge, so I made SuperSnark... Isn't she cute? The sentiment (by Funny Bones by Riley&co) is part of the goodies I picked up at my LSS today, but the superhero & paper is all stuff i've had for a while. She's actually a combination of two PI images from MFT - Super Boy for the most part, and I used the girl's face from Home Sweet Home for her hair.

I made this into a card for a good friend by crossing out the second "I am" and making it a "you're", which cut the snark of the initial sentiment, but I think it definitely still has sass. I love her - hope you do too!
