Peace prayers and blessings

I made a card using a recent set that I got from Newton's Nook called Cocktail Mixer along with the die set.  With the strawberry on it I thought it was perfect for a summer card and would work for the Challenge colors.

Canine Wisdom

My daughter got a puppy with her boyfriend a couple of months ago, and this is REALLY their baby.  She is so funny on how she treats him and talks about "Gus".  He is a Teddybear because she has a lot of allergies to pet dander.  She is struggling this week here in WI with ragweed.  This is a card that I made for her using an image from Digital Delights called Loving Paws Set and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  I included a few pictures of Gus since I tend to get almost daily pictures or videos, hehe.

Just wanted to Brighten you day

Here is a card that I made using a fairy from the Paper Shelter along with a sentiment from TLC, Create.  I love sunflowers so this fairy appealed to me, Fairy Emma.  When I go to the store and they ask, "Is there anything that we can help you find?"  I always answer, "An elf, to clean my house."  Maybe I have to change my answer since I never get one to a fairy.

Love is all around

I got this stamp from Art Impression when they had their birthday sale and I have finally used it.  I did some cleaning, and couldn't find my Memento ink pad so I used my Versafine which I think was too muddy.  I used my dies from My Favorite Things that were just retired and put pop dots behind the pink ones.  The image is two side so there is a front and back and I put a piece of patterned paper in between the image and the inside of the card.
