and They Call It Puppy Love! Happy Valentine's Day!

Coffee of the Day - Chocolate Cherry Almond

Yesterday I was able to deliver Valentine goodies to Mick and Brutus. we picked up Tyler, who was between classes, and headed out for lunch. what a glorious time together!

again, sorry for the lousy card photo, but I am trying to get better - I promise!

LOVE the pix of Mick and Brutus!

image is from The Doodle Garden, digital papers are by Far Far Hill, burlap ribbon is May Arts. everything else is from my stash. dog was colored to look like Brutus, of course! lots of distressing on this one. also a touch of faux stitching.

Happy Valentine's Day to YOU, dear friend!

isn't that the cutest? they were made for each other! true Puppy Love! :)

light was coming thru window so it was hard to get a good pic. sorry

Another icky yuck photo taken with my shaky hands behind the camera phone. it really was the best of the ones I could get. so very sorry.....

image is by Amy Doodle Stamp Co., papers are digital ones by Far Far Hill, stamps used are retired ones by My Favorite Things. buttons, ticket, coin envelope, and twine are from my stash.

Happy Valentine's Day, Deer! ;)

Coffee of the Day - French Vanilla

yes, why it HAS been ages since I last posted! I have still been doing a wee bit of crafty stuff, just haven't really had a way to get decent photos to upload to my blog. and y'all really don't want to know about my every day, hum drum life, so I save you the agony of those boring tidbits. that goes on Facebook! ha!

I am finding that I can get tolerable pix with the camera on my phone. if Dave is around, he actually takes pretty good ones since he doesn't have the 'shaky hands' problem I do.

so I will try to post some craft things a bit more often from here on out. :)
some will still be of sub-standard photo quality if I take them, so please be patient with me. thanks!

Today's card is going to one of my sons for Valentine's Day. I don't want to give away toooooo much info on the off chance he stops by. none of my family normally does, so I am not too worried. ;)

the deer image comes from A Day for Daisies. I needed it to be a buck rather than the fawn (which is how the image comes) so I could hang the heart sequins from the antlers. handy dandy antler die from Memory Box to the rescue! :)

papers are from the Basic Grey Persimmon collection, brown satin ribbon is May Arts, leaf sprig die is also Memory Box. buttons, heart doily, and ticket are from my stash. little heart stamp is from a MFT set that has been retired. (sorry)

Thanks so much for hanging in there with means a lot!
