I have to laugh at this picture.....How the #@! did I take this picture so darn crooked? Honestly, no alcoholic beverages were consumed at the time of this picture! Anyway, I bought this set and played around with it. It turned out ok. I've seen way cuter cards than this though....I'm telling ya...I am not happy with any of my cards lately. I'm surrounded by such talent, which should make me better.....Instead it is stealing all of my creativity, or maybe I need new eyeballs to look at my work differently! The paper for this card was Martha Stewart, and the rest....pretty self-explanatory!
By the way.....Monday is my birthday.....so I will be offering BLOG CANDY very soon! (I'm hoping to do some shopping on Saturday....so check back on September 10th for the big giveaway!) Hope all of ya have a great weekend!

I wanted to make a card last night...but was getting tired. Over the weekend I had colored some of the images that Florence had sent me. I really love my Prismas! So last night I pulled this little guy out and adhered him to some chocolate card stock. I layered it again on the red scalloped paper and again on the light brown. Paper was from DCWV. I distressed the layers. I wanted to sew.....but was really not in the mood....so no sewing..... I added some scalloped chocolate paper to peek out from behind and added some black sparkly dots. Then.....I added this "dog" tag. Does anyone remember these? I bought them probably 10 years ago and thought at the time how cool they were! They came with like a thousand individual words printed on "dog" tags! I am really digging into my old supplies lately! I used my Sharpie to highlight the word, heart. I added a red heart and drew a paw print on it. I also used a bit of ribbon and stamped the I and You with my Snap stamps. I think for my next blog candy which will be soon....whenever I can get my butt to the store, I am going to ask people to use some old supplies....old paper, old stamps, old embellishments....so start thinking!

Sometimes quick and easy is all the time I have! Especially now that I am back at work. I am finding that my time is very limited. This birthday cake with by Doodlebug. I colored it in with my Copics and added Stickles to the candles. I embossed the background with my Cuttlebug, used my Marvy punches, added some yellow brads, and of course some pretty ribbon.....and voila! The card is a done deal! I hope to have time to create this week....sometimes having this blog adds some pressure.....no one's fault by my own I know! Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend!
