Doggy Birthday

I had such fun making a doggy birthday card for a friend's pet! Her dog turned 14 the same week that she had a birthday, so I made them a card each :) I took the dog image from a tag I had using my craft knife and added in some golden heart punches to frame him.

I sure hope Max (the dog) likes his special card!

I have a new grandson!


Our new grandson was born this week, so naturally I made him a very special card. I get to meet him tomorrow night so I shall be all prepared! The card sketch was suggested by the people at RubberStampChat as their June sketch challenge. I just had to make a baby card, right? I had never heard the name Ryder before. I guess I'm going to get very used to it now!! Lol! Congratulations to the proud Mummy and Daddy and big sister!

Brayering!


Do you have a brayer? How do you use yours? I put together a couple of ideas for how to use one and made it into an article for Ezine Articles.

I know the ideas there are pretty basic. Will you tell me some ways you have used your own brayer?

Or if you are new to brayering, let me know when you start to use one and how I can see your projects!
