March Bizzare and Unique Day

Hello -

Yup this makes the third month of my cards inspired by a Bizarre and Unique calendar Day.

The 23rd is national Puppy Day.  So I'm letting the dogs out. (sorry I couldn't help myself)

I recently won this stamp from Newton's Nook and I think its perfect for Puppy Day. (Thank you so much!)

It's difficult to tell in the photo, but there are 3 layers of the pups on this card.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Here comes Peter Cottontail SOS 346

Hi There,

Its a fabulously snowy day today and since hubs works out of our home, we can both enjoy the weather without having to actually be out in it.  Having spent most of my life in southern California, snow when it came was always magical.  That doesn't change in adulthood.

Hubs and I were on our way to Calfornia to visit my Dad when the last snowfall hit - it was a bit of a tricky drive but our flight made it out of Baltimore before the airports started cancelling flights.

I am happy to have another snowy day where I can craft and watch it come down; I haven't stopped smiling since I woke up.  I made lentil soup yesterday, we have some crusty rolls to go with it so I am set to play in my crafty space most of the day.

This card is for Shopping our Stash # 346 Here comes Peter Cottontail,we are to provide Easter Creations.

This is a Stampendous image, it was a gift last year so he's  making his Easter debut this year. The stamp was heat embossed with versafine onyx black and clear powder and colored with zigs.

That natural light from my window with all the snow makes for a photo that needs no adjusting.

Here is my view today. Snow is expected to fall well into night time.

AAA Card Ombre

Hi there,

I am submitting this to AAA Cards - Ombre, and even though I used an embossing folder and added an edge cut since it is mostly white on white with only the sentiment color, I still feel this is a CAS card.

Another card I have been unexpectedly been needing is a pet sympathy cards.  Many of my friends have older dogs and cats and several have passed on in the last year.  I needed another unexpectedly today. So I made two just to have a spare.

My sentiment was colored in 3 blues and diecut on top of fun foam to give it a bit of weight on the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
