Heatwave!

We have been in the middle of a heatwave…temperatures have been over 100 degrees all week. We should be around 91 degrees right now so its much hotter than normal. I’m looking forward to things cooling down a little.

I still haven’t organized my pictures from our vacation but here is one that I took at the Idaho/Canada border. We found this beautiful spot. Across the water is Canada.

Today I was working on some Thanksgiving cards with the cute “Gnome for the Holidays” by Photoplay.

I love these gnomes…they have them for Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, July 4th etc. I used the gnome for the holidays paper pad and layered a few of the papers.

I stamped the images of the gnomes and colored them using copic markers. I then cut them out using the coordinating dies.

After adhering all the papers, I then added the images of the gnomes. For the sentiments I used stickers from the 12×12″ paper pack “Gnome for the holidays, Thanksgiving”.

Thats it for today. See you next time!

Sick dog and Halloween cards

Maggie wasn’t feeling good last week and her ears were bleeding. Initially we thought she had allergies and made her ears bleed by scratching them so much, but it turned out she had major infections in both ears. After a few hours at the vet’s office, she came home with lots of medication. Some of the medication is in her ears and it gradually disperses over time. Its made her pretty deaf so thats been interesting. She’s still not back to normal but she’s improving every day.

I’ve been having fun making some Halloween cards. This set was made with a stamp set from Taylored Expressions.

I stamped the images and colored them with copic markers. I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I used some Halloween cardstock for the background and stamped and embossed the sentiment on a black strip of cardstock. I adhered everything to a grey cardbase.

I love how they turned out!

See you next time!
