8 Fabulous years

Morning. Yesterday our beloved Ranger suddenly passed away. :-(  Words can't even express how sad we are, butI think mostly shocked since we weren't expecting it. That is the part I can't even express is the shock. Life sucks sometimes! 
Ranger is the BEST dog you could ever have. He was my fur baby from the get go on my birthday 8 years ago. He was like a third child in our home and always with the family. Not a person would meet him and not fall in love with him. Always so gentle and friendly, unless you are the UPS man then he barks to tell you just leave it at the door. ha ha!  A beautiful dog, great companion, and such a part of my heart. I am gonna miss you puppers. R.I.P.
We were all looking through pictures and videos on our phones and camera so I thought I would share a few while I try to remember he was so loved and loved us so much.

Big Bloom today

Good morning. How about another one for the Dare To Get Dirty this week over on SCS?  This is for Toni's challenge today as I couldn't help myself on her challenge. :-)


My flower is from Abundant Petals that is colored with Copic markers and then die cut with the matching dies. The base is a Spellbinders die cut with the center piece popped up on dimensionals as well as the flowers. A few sequins and sparkles all over the outer layers and the bloom. Voila!
Hope you can play along in the DTGD this week.

Deep soothing breath

Welcome to the 2018 Dare To Get Dirty Challenges. What fun these are. Not sure what we are talking about? Check out the FAN CLUB page and join the club. Special challenges and fun awaits you! :-) This year I am able to host a challenge again and I am super excited as this is always a fun week at SCS. Check out my challenge HERE for details and linking your creation.


Some of you might need to be a little more generic with their creation for the challenge such as I have done here. And that is PERFECT all the same. I want everyone to play along. This is Take a Deep Breath that is just awesome. We actually saw some of these flowers and leaves up in Canada recently when we were on vacation, very cool! I have this printed on kraft cardstock and colored with various Prisma colored pencils. Some scrap designer paper for the base that is embossed with a dots folder. Some piercing along the bottom edges and a button and twine combo for the corner. Sparkles added to the water and voila! Hope you can play along with us today!

Birthday Lily

Happy Monday! How about a little more of the Dare To Get Dirty challenges? This one is for Kittie's challenge. This gorgeous blossom is Tiger Lily XL that I have colored with Copic markers. After I colored this I wanted to pop up the petals so I hand cut around each one and between. Then I rolled the edges and used dimensionals to pop it off the base. 


A strip of designer paper over the base layer and some sequins to finish it off. Voila! Hope you have time to play around in the stamp room today.
