Sorry I've been away

Good morning! I'm sorry that I've been away, but duty called this weekend. We went out to my SIL's to help out then I found a furry friend to bring home.

My BIL was over there and had his dog. Sequoia is a great dog. He is very well behaved and he is trained well. The dog can do just about anything but talk. So we brought him home and "babysat" him this weekend. I was needing that, I've really missed Ginger. I know, some will say she was a dog, get over it. But I just cant. And I think that part of it is because she died in my arms. But enough of the sad stuff, I thought I'd show you a picture of Danielle and Sequoia in the yard this weekend. It was snowing and they went out to play.

So he was one of the most loved dog's in the world this weekend. He got lot's of love, hugs and kisses!

You wanna see something I've done? Then keep reading!

I don't think that I showed you a card I made for a dear friend for her birthday. This is a suspension card. It's not the first one I've made, but it's the first large one I've made. I wanted to make a silly one for her, and I think that this qualifies as silly.

As you can see from the front it takes up most of the card. I used my coluzzle to cut out all the holes and borders I made for the holes. (Did you hear about coluzzle? I'm shocked, I heard they are going out of business!! Stock up everyone!!) The paper is from a paper pack that I have from Creating Keepsakes, I picked out a couple of pieces that matched for the front and inside and I used an image from my Diamonds Rubber Stamp CD - this one has the back and front images as you can see.

I used Old Olive as a base with some Close to Cocoa and Pumpkin Pie to accent it. I used dental floss to suspend the card and some primas & crystal brads to bling it up! I really hope that she likes it! If you'd like directions on how to do this just let me know and I'll put up an easy tutorial on how to make it. It really is easy!!

Wanna see something else? Ok.

I was in a swap over on PCP and it was for inchies and the theme was Valentine. Ok, I've never made inchies before so I thought I'd give it a try. It was a little hard to make your brain think this small. I'm used to making lots of layers, or bigger things. But once I got the idea it went so quick that I thought I could make those all night. It really did not take very long at all!!

I used my 1" and 3/4" square punches and my marvy ♥ punch. I then used my 3/4" square punch to punch out the square of adhesive to cover over the hearts and I added some beads and I was done! How easy is that? I'm waiting to get my envelope back and I will post the creations I've received.

I hope that this satisfies you for today. I've got a slow start this morning, but I will be back tomorrow to bring you some more inspiration!

Have a great day!

Joani, you sure have been busy! I love your suspension card and will have to try that sometime! Your inches look great too - I'm a little scared to try them probably for the same reason you mentioned...thinking small.

Glad you got some doggie "love" this weekend. I think that kind of unconditional love is wonderful.

Have a fabulous week!
