thinking of you...

After living out of boxes still...I pulled out a few more things to play with. While at work the other day I saw a girls dress that inspired me to make this card. Mind you, I am not the greatest with the gel pen as you can see. I try to send my grandmother a card every few weeks, but with the "move" my things have been packed and I haven't mailed one in a while so...here is what I am sending her tomorrow.

PAPERS: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Real Red, pattern paper from June Bug paper pack
ACCESSORIES: Spring Flower Bouquet, 1/2", 3/4", 1" circle punches, pearls

Strawberry lights....

After living in a sea of boxes for about the past month I am getting a little tired of the color of boxes!!! I broke down and dug out some stuff to play with. So here is a little taste of color!!! Of course I need to play with some of the soon to be retired colors. I will miss them, but I am looking forward to playing with the new permant colors coming to SU!!! And of course it is strawberry season and I love strawberries (along with blueberries my fav...) so I broke out some of the Bold Brights to come up with this cute simple card! Isn't it cute?

STAMPS: Tart & Tangy
INKS: Real Red & Green Galore markers
PAPERS: Yo Yo Yellow, Green Galore, Real Red, White
ACCESSORIES: Eyelet Border Punch, Real Red & Green Galore Grosgrain Ribbon

Mother's Day

It's hard to believe how fast our newest edition to the Miller family has grown in just a few months. When we first got Bandit, he and Buster were the same size & weight. Buster did let him know who was boss in this house! See the expression on his face in this picture...

Although the above picture was just taken in late February see how much Bandit has grown in just a few months!!! This picture was taken at the end of April and Bandit weighs twice as much if not more than Buster now! But believe me Buster still lets it be known who is boss!!! Buster has the Big Dog syndrom and Bandit has the little dog syndrom!!! Sometimes it is just too funny to watch them together.

Aside from my puppies and packing to move to a new house in less than a week now and living out of boxes, I was able to manage to get some mother's day cards made. This is my limited supply card that I made for my mom. I just got Fifth Avenue Floral and I thought it would be a good idea to place them in the corners and cut out slots to slip in the MOM. I think this came out pretty good with the few things I used.

STAMPS: Fifth Avenue Floral, Messages for Mom
INKS: Night of Navy
PAPERS: Brocade Blue, White
ACCESSORES: Mat Pack, Paper-Piercing Tool, craft knife
