Jericho has a playmate now. This is Duffy, a Bichon Frise, born June 2. He is the most cuddly little guy and he loves Jericho. At first, Jericho wasn't all that crazy about Duffy and did whatever he could to keep away from him. Well, about a month has passed and that has all changed. They are great buds and Jericho seems to be a brother to Duffy now. They've been found to share the same pet bed and they romp around the house and yard a lot. Our two cats, Doc and Figaro, even seem to get along beautifully with this new addition. Yeah, we were nuts but we sure do love animals and have enough love to share. Doesn't this pic make you think of salt and pepper? lol
Thanks for stopping by. Come visit again soon!
This was a lot of fun to come up with. Inside this purse-looking item is about the top two-thirds of a lunch bag folded in half to form to pockets. I used my Big Shot for the bird using Riding Hood Red cardstock and used Kiwi Kiss cardstock for the piece that was also cut using my Big Shot. The stamped image is using Pacific Point ink which is another new In Color. I hinged both sides with pieces punched with the Round Tab punch so it doesn't just flop open.
The fall item that you see here is actually using the bottom part of a lunch bag so this opens up. Ron took the pictures for the post today for me and only took front views.

This is one of my favorites that I've done. A friend, Amy, had a baby boy, Mason, and I made this using some of our On-Board chipboard, a scrapbooking kit, the stamp set called Zoofari and various other embellishments that Stampin' Up! carries. Things like this are so much fun because once you start making one, the ideas and possibilities come to you like crazy! I was late getting this to Amy and I hope she has received it before seeing it here. lol
Happy Stampin' and Scrappin' All!

Now a word from your bloggin' stampin' demonstrator. lol Just thought I'd brighten the page a little more with one of the latest pics of Scout and Pace. lol I've had to put my order in to have them on Saturday's now because I need my "fix". This was taken a couple of weeks ago. The water level was much higher in the pool but they decided to take our watering can and water the flowers, the plum tree and the pine tree in the yard. I've seen the kids a whole lot lately along with baby brother Trig when he is not sleeping. lol I'm soooo blessed to have an awesome daughter-in-law who is a great mom and an awesome wife to my son. Thank you Erin for all you do!

Challenged? Yes I am when it comes to posting some pics to my blog. lol When I went to load this picture, it was straight but now appears on its side. This happened twice. This is the folded designer series paper opened which reveals some layered card stock for a surface to write a note on.
The floral card is a card I received as a swap and the picture does not do it justice. It is embossed and is beautiful. The card with the butterfly on was one I did in a shoebox swap and the creator of this card, Molly, is now a good friend of mine. Molly is from Ohio and we hit it off from the start. We are still corresponding by phone and e-mail and I just LOVE her!!! This was Molly's first Convention too.
Oops I did it again. lol Rather than spend a whole lot of time on straightening my pics, I've decided to go ahead and post them because I'm long over due. The crimping on the card with the diamond shaped center is soooooooo cool. The crimping is done in two different directions, creating a really nice effect. It is a card front that I received in a swap. The card with the pine trees is using Lovely As A Tree. It is on page 106 of our catalog. Molly made this card for a swap. Who woulda thought to use THESE colors?! Beautiful!
The card using Embrace Life is using a technique that I'll be sure to demo and probably use at Club. It's faux silk. This one I received while swapping.
