 Here is my Project for the hop I was given the Dog Gone Good  stamp set 

I decided to make cupcakes!  Who doesn't love a yummy cupcake?  My family loved these cute little
dog images as toppers.  They were so much fun to color up.  they are held in place by clear plastic 
acetate.  I hot glued each one to the acetate so they stick straight up.  :0) Fun and easy.  Would be
a great project for a group of kids for a party.

Of course, I also made a card, since I am addicted to stamping and card making.

Thank you card- copy of Leanne's card from the paper players

Clean and simple for my card today.  I love this psx stamp that I found at a garage sale for just a quarter.  Can you believe someone was getting rid of their goodies so cheaply?  yay for me!  :)
I've also used a Stampin up stamp "thank you" that I found at a different garage sale over the summer.  So  a big thank you to all of you who sell your used stamps at great prices.  I appreciate it.

I ran across this flower challenge over at The Paper Players.  My card is a copy of one of their designers, Leanne.  You can see her beautiful card right there at the blog.  It is gorgeous.

Challenge entered: FLowers- ends 3/20 come play along.

This doesn't show the white around my card. I have
a difficult time getting a straight on photo.

Plant sitter

Good morning  friends!   While shopping the other day, I saw this lovely African violet and knew
I had to have it.  My grandma always had one in the house, and it reminds me of her.  Gram was my
best friend.  I was very fortunate to have been so close to her.  :)  

For my project, I've used this beautiful purple plant, and this darling stamp to make  little plant sitter.
I thought it was so cute.  It will be nice to keep on my desk, remind me of my gram, and give me
an extra smile throughout the day.

I made a card (kind of)  I photoshopped one, with a photo of my plant.  I tried to print it out, but either my printer printed it out blue instead of purple, so it shall stay an Ecard.

You can find this clear stamp at

My african violet with plant sitter
After coloring my stamp, I adhered it to a heavy
duty paper clip. I then could easily clip
my little bear to the instructions stick that was
in my plant.

Card made from the photo of my plant.

Challenges entered; (our animal friends) ends 3/28 (for mums) ends 3/31 (spring time) ends april 10th

Happy Heart

Good morning!  Looks like the start of a beautiful day here in southwest Michigan.  The snow is almost all gone, and the sun is out shining brightly.  YAY!!!  Spring is coming, Spring is coming.

My card today is using Happy Heart from Scrapbook Stamp Society.  All of Sherri Baldy's image give me a smile and a happy heart so this one is fitting of its name.  I love her little pig tails, or maybe they are called pony tails?  What is it called if there are 2?  I'm not really sure.  :)

The digi that I used can be found here:

The freebie circle sentiment that I used can be found here at Netty's cards:

Challenges that I am entering: (flowers and pearls) closes 3/20 (sketch) closes 3/20

Happy Easter

oh wow!!! Put your sunglasses on because I am coming in with my card BRIGHT AND CLEAR today.  LOL I had no idea my paper would show up so brightly.  
My image today is a clear stamp from Sunsational Stamps.  You can find this cute bunny
and many more over at the store.   More clear stamps
are being listed up daily so be sure to stop by their store.  

Challenges Entered: sketch challenge (ends 3/11)

It's almost Spring!

I'm feeling Spring!  With all of the green challenges going on today, I thought I would make a card
and enter a few.  The sun was out today and melting our snow.  Soon I hope it will all be gone, and 
my tulips will be peaking their heads out.  

I couldn't wait to color one of the new fairy images by Sherri Baldy. I realized after I had my image all colored up, that I didn't have any papers to go with it, so I made my own with the markers that I used to color her. The frame is a free image found online smile emoticon You can find this beautiful image by Sherri Baldy both at her etsy shop : and her Scrapbook Stamp Society store :… Thanks for taking a peak. smile emoticon

Challenges entered: (anything with twist of green) ends 3/14 (green) ends 3/15 (green) ends 3/15 (green) ends 3/16 (green) ends 3/16

Happy Spring

Super excited to say I've experienced my first taste of spring on Monday of this week. Yay!  I
can feel it getting closer.  The snow is starting to melt, puddles are in the street.  The sun actually
was bright enough to keep me warm while I was outside.  Oh yea, Spring is coming!

Today I have a spring card just for the occasion. Lisa Peters designs these darling little clear stamps
over at Sunsational Stamps.  You can find the image below here:

Happy Spring Everyone!  :)  Thanks for taking a peak at my card.
