First Boat Ride

Here we all are!!! This is Major's first boat ride...............ever!!! He just turned one, and is such a terrific dog. We took him out to Long Lake to see how he did................great job. He loaded pretty good, and when it was time for him to go after his "dummy".......kersploosh!!! Into the water he went without hesitation. He hesitated when it was time to get back in, but once Chris showed him how, there was no stopping him.

Christmas Joy

He's not liking it, but he's tolerating it. Major isn't really a fan of things on his head, but I think he posed for these pictures pretty darn good for a 5 month old.

It's Been a Long Time

It's been forever since I posted. There has been alot going on in our lives............good and bad. I suffered all of the summer and most of the fall with my Ulcerative Colitis and the side effects from the Prednisone.
The great news is that we added a member to our family. Major was added in September, and what a blessing he is!!! It's been 4 years since our beloved Ben went up to heaven, and the time was right. He is a Black Lab and is full of energy. We are gearing up for a wonderful Christmas this year.
I have been creating cards and projects here and there. I'm hoping the New Year brings better health nad more crafting.

This is our sketch challenge this week at ISC. I changed it up a bit this week and flipped it on it's side. The tag is not my creation........I got it from someone at some point in time, maybe an RAK or a swap??? The artist put her initials on it, but unfortunately that didn't help me. Since the tag looked a bit vintage to me, I decided to go vintage with the reast of it. I distressed the edges of the card with the distressing tool from SU. I also inked th edges because they looked to plain.
Well, I think that's it. As always, if you have any questions for me.......just ask and I'll try and get back with you. TFL!

This Week's Challenge at ISC

Katherine is our challenge hostess this week at ISC. She challenged us to make a card with the faux silk technique. I've done this technique before, but it's been awile. I had alot of fun doing this card, I just wish the photo would've picked up the texture more. Oh well!! TFL!

Swap Time

I'm not much of a swapper, but I was very interested in this one. It is a swap for extra postage. One would include this with her swap with her return postage inside. I usually just toss the stamps in myself. What a cute little idea.

The pansy is actually the "Butterfly" punch from Stampin' Up. I used the aqua painter and ink refills for the coloring. The actual envelope is from the "Two Tags" die cut from Stampin' Up. TFL!

This Week's Challenge at ISC

Faith is our hostess for our weekly challenge at ISC this week. She asked us to make a masculine card. I already had both of my Father's Day cards prepared, so this one will have to be for a birthday or something.

I have such trouble making masculine cards because.......................I.................LOVE.............BLING!!!!

I think the embossing really pops due to the ink I sponged on it. The stamp set is "Lovely As A Tree" from Stampin' Up. TFL!

ISC Weekly Sketch Challenge

We now have weekly sketch challenges at ISC!! Robin has been working her hiney off to get some sketches together and some sponsors for prizes. This is our very first week and boy was I inspired!!!
I stuck to the sketch as much as I possibly could. I am very pleased with the results. The three pairs of flip flops are actually in beer bottle caps (Oberon to be exact......yummy!). The stamp set is "Just Beachy" from Stampin' Up (with exception of the word SUMMER). The ribbon was sent to me by my dear friend Lisa, and the gold fish charm was sent to me by Robin herself. The bling was sent to me by my BFF Vicky.
If you have any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment, and thanks for stopping by!!

This Week's Challenge at ISC

Chris is our challenge hostess this week over at ISC. She had a technique challenge in store for us this week. The technique she asked us to try was...............MASKING!!! I have done this in the past, but I guess I'm just too darn lazy to do it more. It is a very fun technique and packs alot of punch. Here is my card. TFL!

Jessie is our challenge hostess at ISC this week, and I am finally feeling up to making a card. She wanted a card using the following: 3 patterned papers, 3 flowers, 1 ribbon, 1 punch, and SUMMERY!!!!! I think I have all the requirements. It was a very challenging challenge........it really made me think. Thanks for the fun Jessie!!
