WCMD Challenge reminder and Card


Hi! I knew this in the back of my head but it didn't sink in when we took the plunge to add a new puppy to the family. They are like having babies!!!! They are up at night, they pee and poop alot.. and hopefully you get them outside before they do it LOL! Unlike babies, puppies have sharp teeth and Rosey has discovered hers and her BARK. She is at the magical toothy bite everything age. So we are teaching her manners about not biting... it is slowly sinking in but man, they can bite! LOL. So sleep deprived, Fred is showing a card she made a few weeks ago LOL! I love this Sizzix embossing folder, can't recall name at the moment. This is coloured with pencils/OMS and distress inks ( aged mahogany and antique linen), I didn't expect a mahogany color to be such a nice pink. The digistamp and paper pricking pattern are from the Fall Flowers Set.

I am also sending out a reminder to try out the FSS World Card Making Day Challenge... open until Monday, Oct. 12 midnight. Just post a link or email me a pic of your card using any FSS product or FSS freebie. $50 worth of prizes!

It is Canadian Thanksgiving tomorrow... we are heading out on the road, so if you email me, replies might be delayed until late Sunday night or Monday.

Oh yes, still working on the coloured flowers and doodledallions... sigh. I'll "get there " LOL.

Have a great day!
