Hi There!


Happy Thursday and welcome September!!!! I am still a bit dazed that it is already September, and this year is almost at an end. My parents weren't kidding when they said the older you get time flies by faster! Sheesh! If it is zipping by this quickly now...what's it going to be like ten years from now? I shudder to think of it!


Today's card features another precious stamp from The Peekers 2 Collection by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD, and this little darling is called "Partners in Peeking Peeker." Aren't they adorable?!? I just love her cherubic face and the puppy's an absolute cutie...looks like he's smiling to me. :o) Makes me wonder what kind of mischief they are planning together. If she's anything like I was as a child...it will ALL be blamed on the pup. ;o) My poor mother and all the things she put up with. She must be a saint!


The wonderful patterned papers have been hiding in my stash for far too long to mention...I just love each beautiful sheet and hate to think of using them...cuz if I use them...they will all be gone! You understand, right? I kept the layout very simple...I'm really digging the simpler layouts at the moment...and the flower was created using the Big Scalloped Circles dies from Spellbinder's. The stitching around the edges was created using the awesome Sew Easy tool! It makes me happy to be able to create cards with stitching...minus the sewing machine...as we aren't on speaking terms at the moment (or ever really).


Thanks so very much for dropping by!!! I hope your September is spectacular and your Thursday is even better!!!!
Blessings and Hugs,
Carolyn

This is just GORGEOUS! I just love these colors! And oh my she is such a cutie with her little puppy! I just adore ALL of the SCACD stamps! They are all little works of art! I can already see my paychecks flying out the door as soon as I get out of school and get a job! LOL! I love how you did the sentiment and the flowers, I may have to CASE that idea! I too feel like time is flying by {sigh} my grandson turned 1 yesterday {wahh} I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. Well, darling, I didn't mean to write you a book, hahaha....I will shut up now, have a good day!
Hugs,
