Don't have a cow! Celebrate a birthday!

Will you be needing a card for an upcoming birthday? Celebrate with Charlie, the party cow! There's balloons and bling, oh, my!


Both the cow and balloons are 3 layers with pop dots in between. If I were to redo this card again, I would pop just the cows head one more time. I put glossy accents on the balloons to help them stand out and I used a label punch to cut out a piece to emboss a birthday greeting. 

This is my second card for One Crazy Stamper, using their High Hopes Stamps line.

Pug Love!

If you follow me at all, by now you know I have been blessed with a pug! His name is Bandit. He has added a lot of joy since the passing of our last love, Hudson.


Bandit loves to sit on my shoulder while I am watching TV. Crazy but true! He also has some allergies, but we are not sure to what. Because of the allergies, last November he lost some of the black color to the tip of his nose. You can see this in the card below! I figured why not color this little guy just like my own! 


You can also see this published at One Crazy Stamper, where this month I have the pleasure of being their guest blogger! Thank you OCS!

The supplies I used for this card are:
Stamp: Bandits Cake
Paper: American crafts, Confetti; Neena white card stock; 
Card stock: yellow, mint green, brown and pink

Ink: memento black; metallic edger-yellow

Copies: T1-T6, Rv14, R 20, BG11, BG34,BG32, Y15, Y19, YR23, YR65, E42, E43, E25,E29, E44 and "0" for those little mistakes! 

Stamp: High Hopes Birthday Pug and greeting

Punch: 1 3/4 and 2" Circle punches

Embellishments: black embossing powder, diamond stickles, pop dots, doodle bug eerie eyes, glossy accents, Sookwang tape and glue dots and a wobbler!

Have a look at how I cut the head so it can tilt side to side just like when he looks at me with questioning eyes!

Last of Christmas

I don't know about you, but come Christmas I never seem to have enough cards! At Scrapfest last November I guess I was planning because I picked up these layered pre-cut images and I was able to put great cards together in minutes! 



You can be sure I will be getting more of these for my stash! 

Thanks for stopping by!
