BFF's and FWF

I'm going to keep this short because I don't have much time.  I'm spending today with some very good friends, both 2-legged and 4-legged.  We've got some crafty time planned, lunch together, and a dog walk across the ice to the ice shack to see how the fish are biting.  Should be a great day!!

And, here's my cards to share with you this week:


I sent this card out last week to one of the friends I'll see today.  She loves Goldens and she loves to bicycle.  I figured this card about covered it all.  I used a Phyllis Harris/Unity stamp called, "All I Need".  I used Crate Paper's Fourteen 6x6 paper, a Spellbinders die, Copic markers, and 3 Girl JAM ribbon.

The first Friday in January, I almost didn't have a FWF entry because I couldn't upload pictures to my blog.  This is one of the cards I was planning to show that day.  I've been uploading to Picasso, then to my blog ever since that day, so at least I figured out a way around it.  I made about 20 of these cards Dec. 26 to use to write thank you notes for all the great gifts I got this year. I used Echo Park Wintertime cardstock, Unity Snowflake Kisses stamp set, bling from my stash, and the sentiment is from a Unity grab bag.

This tag was for a tag swap I participated in with the cropchocolate.com design team.  I made it so long ago I may have trouble recalling what I used.  OK, here goes:  Echo Park Wintertime 6x6 paper and 12x12 embellishments (tree), Unity 'Just Chillin' stamp of the week set.  The winter banner is a Unity SMAK kit (11/12). I used various ribbons from my stash and some snowflake brads I've had since I started scrapbooking.  I thinking they are Hot Off the Press.  I colored the snowmen withe Copic markers.  You can't see it in this picture, but the snow people are nestled in some layers of snow, covered in icicle Stickles.

Enjoy your day!

  5. That is a sweet card, my dog used to run along beside my son when he rode his bike, brings back memories. Gotta love those goldens. Did you see photos of all the K-9 Parish Comfort Goldens who went to Newtown with their handlers to comfort the children (and adults)? Very moving.
