I am working, little by little to make some pet sympathy cards so that I have them when I need them.
It's such a sad reason to have to send a card (any sympathy card) but an excellent opportunity to show love and support. 
Sentiment and paw die from My Favorite Things.
Have a great day!

Howdy. I thought I should share this little gem on my blog.
I love how this card turned out. Those big ole' sentiment/word dies are show stoppers.
This die is from Erin Lee Creative. Cut out of am alcohol ink back ground and popped up = winner! 
Thank you for stopping by!

Thank You

 I love all of the rainbow cards we are seeing.
I decided to use all of the sentiments in this MFT set in one card.  
I used copic markers to color the strips, then stamped the sentiments on.
Thank you for looking!

No Horsing Around

Here is another card using an alcohol ink background piece. I have to say the blues and aquas lend themselves to watery scenes--all bubbly and pretty.
Thank you for stopping by!

A Rainbow Hello

Howdy. We finally saw sunshine here in Kansas yesterday but today we have more rain in the forecast. I thought I'd post a little handmade rainbow happiness in protest of more rain :).
The HELLO die cut (Lawn Fawn) turned out as it did when I accidently chopped off the triangle part of the speech bubble...OOPS! 
Have a super day!
Thanks for stopping by!

Ohhhh...alcohol inks, why did it take me so long to cave in?
The card was done using a panel that I had created using the alcohol inks.
I then stamped some floral stamps using white ink. 
I topped it off with a fun scripty HBD due from MFT.
Have a wonderful day.

I had this SU! stamp set out and decided to give the black and white background with a pop of color behind a die cut panel a shot. This really is a cool and so many possibilities
The die is from MFT.
Thanks for looking!

Pet Sympathy

Sympathy cards are not really made in a joyous situation, however, I can say it makes my heart happy to make them when I need to do it. I remember when our Daisy girl crossed the rainbow bridge 17 months ago and one of the most memorable moments was opening a couple of sympathy cards.

When our pets pass, we know that they are family and that the pain is so real. Receiving the cards helped me to feel like we weren't alone and that those who sent them understood how difficult of a time it was for us. Now, I try my hardest to do the same for others.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Mother's Day

This one is a little late, but it's also my very first card using alcohol inks.
What a fun technique to begin learning!
The stamps are from Winnie and Walter.
Thanks for coming by.

Happy Mail

I received a new box of crayola markers and a coloring book the other day. Of course, my first thought was "WATERCOLORS", whoop,whoop! 
So I gave them a whirl with this cute little Penny Black stamp.
I'm impressed with the pretty colors they produced, nice and rainbow-ie. 
Hope you have a colorful day.
