Birthday Tilda

I made this card using papers from a card kit swap I was in awhile ago......figured I should use them, rather than hoard them!!! That show, HOARDERS, is going to keep my house clean and my craft room clean!! LOL Does anyone else watch it?

I tried something different with the charm...I bought some chain for necklace making and attached it to the charm to make it dangle. It is cute but had to use crystal effects inside the knot to keep it attached (I don't have any wire thingies to open and close the little rings)

Thanks for looking!!!! Have a great weekend!!

Birthday hugs

This image is called Pony Love and it is by the very talented Karen at Karen's Doodles!! Isn't it ADORABLE??? The card base is black and then on top of that is a layer of burgundy shimmery paper from Paper Mania (THANKS LOLS!!!). I coloured the image with my Koh-i-noor pencils and Gamsol, added a ribbon and some flowers & buttons. The sky is chalked on using my Pebbles shimmer chalks. The sentiment is computer generated!!

I think it might need a charm dangling from the ribbon, what do you think???

Thanks for stopping by! HAVE a GREAT day!!!

Our newest addition....

This is not craft related but wanted to share our newest family member! This is MINTY!

She is a rescued Bichon Shitzu (we think) and is 5 months old. She came to us completely UNTRAINED so we have our work cut out for us!!! She sleeps good through the night but we are having Potty issues!!!! We take her out every 30-45 min. but she doesn't pee or poop. We have training pads around the house, but nothing. She peed yesterday when I turned my back for a second - half on the pee pad & half on the floor (that's a good step, I think!)

She is in desperate need of a haircut -which she is getting on Thurs. so I will post new pics as I get them!!!! She is a cutie, and very sweet...and very playful!!!

Brick is thoroughly NOT impressed!!!! He looks so sad!! She just wants to play with him and he avoids her like the plague!!!! LOL He will come around I'm sure!!!

Here he is totally trying to ignore

Shaggy girl!!!! She is going to the Vet on Wed. too, to get her puppy shots and a check up. She has a busy week!!!! All this new stuff, new rules, new family, and new brothers (Tux tolerates her too, he just walks away when she tries to sniff him!).

Have a great week!!!!! I will have a crafty post for you later today!!!! I promise!!!!

This weeks challenge at The Corrosive Challenge blog is an Asian theme. I found some papers that I thought looked "Asian" and used them. The cardstock is Regal Rose and the DP is just from my stash - NO idea what company!!!! LOL I paper pieced her kimono with the pink paper to match the card. The stamp is from Simon Says Stamp, a set called We are Family Dolls. You can find it HERE!!!
