Blessings

Well...here it is already the middle of April. What in the world is going on. As George Jetson would say "Jane! Stop this crazy thing!" It's mid-April and we're fixin to get a snow storm the next couple of days. Yuck.
Here is a cute little card I whipped up the other night during one of my free moments. The stamps are Sassafrass Lass and the papers are from my scrap pile. I cut the jagged circle on my Cricut Expression - love that thing, worth every penny. The other embellishments are from my stash. Lovin' how this card turned out. It's so cute!
Hope your week is going well. Everyone in Wyoming had better buckle up and hold on for the ride - it looks like it's gonna be a rough one for the next couple days. Hugs! Brenda

Introducing...

Dodge! He's our 2-year-old Greyhound that we adopted in Colorado this past weekend. Is he sweet or what? His personality is just as sweet and he loves to give kisses. In fact, if he hasn't seen you for a bit, he'll give you a "smile". In all actuality, it looks as if he's baring his teeth in anger, but he is smiling, and I've heard this is a Greyhound trait. He gets so excited his whole 90-pound body wags right along with his tail. He's a love bug. He is a retired racer and as you may or may not know, these dogs are basically retired and that is that...they are left with greyhound adoption agencies in hopes they'll find a loving home. It's heartbreaking to leave all the others behind, but one is good for now. I think we're Greyhound spoiled now for the rest of our lives.
Hey - hope you have a wonderful Easter. Hallelujah - He has risen!! Blessings - Brenda

Can you believe...?

...it's April already? Where is time going? Personally, I'm ready for it to slow down a bit. Before we know it, we'll be in the throes of summer and I'll still be scratching my head and wondering where the time has gone. Easter is a week from this Sunday and I decided I'd better get busy and get some cards made! I had a few minutes today and cranked this one out. I thought it turned out pretty ok. I've been going through some of my papers and decided how fun would it be to use some of the scraps I had? So...the front of this card is actually some scrap paper from a kit I got last year some time. The stamps are CTMH "Bird Basics". The circle is a smooth coated chipboard that I've had for ages and the swirly on it is a rub-on from CTMH. There are little baubles on there, sort of a bluish color, to top it all off. Tell me what you think...leave me some love. Have a wonderful Thursday - hugs! Brenda
