S & S Mid Week Throw Down

Good Wednesday Everying to all of you. Before I begin , in case you didn't notice I wanted to tell you that I've added pictures of Molly & Daisey here. I always refer to them as My Babies, so from this point on they can be known as my Blog Babies. Molly is in the back and Daisey is the one that won't look at the camera. Sue at Sue's Rubber Stamping Adventure has her dog, Keeley listed as her Blog Dog so I thought I'd CASE that idea. Sue is a super talented lady and you if you have not already been to her blog you should take a minute to stop by there and see her work. I am always amazed at what a great colorist she is and her fantastic sense of design.
Tonight's post is for the midweek throwdown over at Stars and Stamps. We were challenged to make a Love themed card. We are working on our deadline for Valentine's Cards so I am trying to get as many in as possible. I decided to make a Love You card with non traditional colors tonight. Seeing as how I need to get into the kitchen and do some prep work for tomorrow's dinner I went with a totally CAS design. My background card stock was run through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug Heart embossing folder. The Love stamp is one that I found today in an old box of stamps that I haven't used in years. It pays to clean out boxes once in a while. I just used a scallop border punch from Stampin Up and I was done. I think this is a good card for either male or female. That will have to be it for me tonight. Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow night. I want to wish each and every one of you a Happy, Healthy Thanksgiving. I am a lucky lady and have a lot to be thankful for in my life and this year I get to add so many new friends that I've met through blogging to my list. Thank you for being you.


  1. awww, your doggies are adorable! My son and DIL have 2 yorkies too - Smokey & Bandit! LOL I like the blog dog idea - too cute:)
    You know this card is a hit with me, it's purple! LOL I love the simple design, and wish I could sit down and make simple cards, but I always seem to over-think everything and take much too long to create!
    Wishing you and yours a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving!!

  2. Very nice card, Donna! Happy thanksgiving. :)

  3. And thank you for being you, too Donna! You're one fantastic lady and I'm so thankful you're my good blogging buddy!

    Fabulous card! Love the simplicity of this and the wonderful non traditional colors. So pretty.

  4. Your blog babies are adorable. Love the purples in the card.

  5. Well, aren't you a sweetie! Love the pictures of your "Blog Babies" so precious. The card is sweet. I'm not very good at doing purples, so always like seeing what other do with them. I'm excited that your doing a House Mouse card, can't wait to see it! (no pressure) Thanks for the wonderful kind words, you made me sound better than I really am, but really appreciate your kindness. Happy Thanksgiving.
