Smiles & Sunshine

Hello Ladies! Oh my I just saw my last post was over a week ago.  Shame on me! I was quite busy (and still am) with creating for the next Whimsy Inspirational Magazine and also the Whimsy October release. Also our Boxer girl Coco had to have surgery, very unexpectedly and after that she had to be under constant supervision ... she is not allowed to jump, run or to play too much...jeeeez what a task...if you know Boxers you also know that this is  actually a 'mission impossible' LOL But she is doing very well now and her staples will be removed next week :-) I'm also in the middle of re-organizing my craft room and will show you some photos when I'm done.

This card I like to share today I made for the last Whimsy Inspirational Magazine, available in print HERE and as a smaller free digital edition HERE.

'Lil' Sweet Tweeter' was stamped onto X-Press it! card with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored using Copics. Papers are from Beautiful Moments. Flowers, ribbon and lace are from my stash. The bakers twine is available in Whimsy's embellishment section of the store.

I made this card quite a while ago and unfortunately did not make a note of the Copics I used.

The sentiment is Raindrop Echo Design for Whimsy: 'Summer Letter Seals'. Dies used are Whimsy Shapeology dies: vines die, circle pennant die; Tim Holtz: bird cage; Spellbinders scalloped square.

Thanks for taking the time and stopping by today.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Stunning card, love this image and the bird cage die cut looks fabulous with it.
    Oh dear poor Coco I do hope she is recovering quickly as I know how difficult it is to keep a dog calm and dosile almost compared to normal everyday.
