Loving Memory

One of the ladies at work had to say good bye to her beloved dog Stevie. What a sad day. I have a huge heart for animals and it hurts to see someone else hurt. So I made the situation ever worst and gave her a card that made her cry all over again. It is part of the healing. We had to say good bye to our family dog about 4 years ago, and I still cry when I come across a picture of him. Love you Mackenzie!! I know you are watching over all of us! You are truely missed.

Any ways one with the Card..

It is amazing in person, the photo is not doing the card justice I didn't have any of the supplies to make this one, so I headed over to my demo's house and made it!!! How lucky am I to be able to walk across the alley and all the supplies are there. Thank-you Joyce for your open house!!!!

So when Tab at 7 kids college Fund put out the call for cards, these as some of them that I did.

How cute is this stamps. It by a new company called Your Next Stamp. How cute is this little Monkey? He is from the set called Monkey gone Bananas.

I just love the background paper, I was lucky enough to hit up a Jo-Ann's Fabric store when I was in the States. And they had all their scrapbooking paper stacks on SALE. For those of you that are lucky enough not to have to shop in Canada you won't understand the mark up on craft supplies. So here is an example, The 8x8 stack would cost in Canada regular price $19.99 and for a 12x12 $30 to $35. Now I got this 8x8 pack for only $5.99!!! Amazing savings.

Cardstock: Shimmery White - SU, Tempting Turquoise - SU, Pixie Pink - SU, the back ground paper is by DCWV called Animal Crackers.
Stamps: Your Next Stamp
Ink: Tempting Turquoise - SU, Pixie Pink - SU

Justrite Stamp

I had to share this. My hubby and I have kinda made it a habit to go to "Winners" store once a month. He checks out the clothes and I head over to the crafts sections. One of the times I came across this. I almost fell over. I have been looking at them on-line for quite a while. I guess it sometimes pays off to wait. I only paid $16.99 for this whole set. What a score!!!
