Labradors

We have always had labradors 2 yellow ones and now a black lab.  My younger son calls yellow labs “white chocolate labradors”, which I think is a much better name.  So here is a card with 2 of these wonderful dogs in decoupage.  I think this might find it’s way to my husband for his next birthday.

I have had the die-cut sheet for such a long time that I don’t even remember who produced the kit!

Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge – All that Jazz

For my second All That Jazz challenge post I have made a CAS card using the grand piano and added my own sentiment.  Perfect for the piano teacher!

I have had Craft Artist 2 for some time now but I am learning to do different things every time I use it.To get this effct of the border, I used to layer 2 squares but today I discovered that it is far easier to use just one square and make a thick boder around the shape!

The Cheerful Stamp Pad – for a man

This is the second week in the For a man challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.   This great slogan comes from Sentimetal Susan and is available at Stitchy Bear Outlet.   I have team the digital sentiment with a Daisy Trail digikit called Swirling Memories.   I really love the effect of the lamp post shadow.
