A House of Cards

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

I'm back again today...

and pretty tired. I got up a few times last night and ended up sleeping on the couch. No, I am not on the outs with my husband. I had a sick baby... furbaby, that is. My poor boy was throwing up all night. Not fun. A sick great dane is nothing like a sick chihuahua. They make a WAY bigger mess. Oh, the joys of owning a large breed! I really wouldn't change a thing though. I love my big dogs.

Speaking of dogs, a new friend of mine, Nina, sent me a couple of stamps that she designed for October Stamps. You should definitely go check out her blog. She has such a fun and colorful style. She makes the cutest cards. Anyway, she went out of her way to send me one in particular that she designed that I just loved (Thanks Nina!)... a little puppy holding a flower in its mouth (Bengt med blomma). I just LOVE this stamp. It is just too cute! I got a chance to play with it yesterday, and this is what I came up with.

I am not much of a stamper, so about all I know how to do is stamp on different colored papers and paper piece. But I really did enjoy making this. Some day I will try and work on my stamping skills. ;)

I modeled this puppy after my own (see the beginning of this post). His name is Razzy, and he is such a sweetheart. These pictures are a few years old, but he still looks pretty much the same.


Well, that is all for me today. I want to thank you all for stopping by. I really appreciate your sweet comments. Have a great day! Hugs!

Can imagine it was a big mess when your Great Dane got sick...Yak! Hope he feels better today.

Thank you for your sweet words. I'm glad you liked the stamp, and the card you've made is super cute!! He actually looks quite a lot like your furbaby :)

Must have been a lot of work to paper piece all of those itsy bitsy parts, but it turned out great!!

Poor furbaby. It is always awful when a pet is sick, aside from the mess. So hard to sleep when you're worried about them. I know I got that way when my cat was having issues a while back.

Glad you're back posting! The card is super cute and turned out so well! Love the sun and the way you did the outlines. Thanks so much for sharing your stuff. And yesterday's cards are utterly fabulous! So much fun seeing your work!

What a darling card...and I hope your sweet furbaby is feeling better. He is so cute. I have a Dog Park at the end of my street ...and I love driving by. There is a Harlequin Great Dane who frequents there and it is an absolute riot to watch him stand on those tall tall legs, looking down at the scrawny little dogs running helter skelter between his legs. He never moves, just watches...like he is playing this Giant Play Dog Toy for the park guests.

Your card is absolutely adorable Roree! And so is your own dog, hope he feels better soon!

I hope Razzy is feeling better soon. We also have a Great Dane (although he's only 8 months old) and the messes are huge. But they are wonderful dogs!
The card is darling! I just adore the stamp and design! I think your stamping skills are great, the end result is worth the time. ;)

Love your card. My litte one just looked at it & said,"That is the most beautiful card ever. You should make that one Mummy." LOL, you have another fan now.

Hi, there! I just found your blog today, and as a fellow card-maker and Great Dane mama, I wanted to say HI!! Your Dane is adorable. Mine is a fawn, and she's 4 years old and weighs in at 180 lbs. You can see her on my blog along with my cards.

Speaking of cards, I just love all of yours! I'm glad I found your blog, and I'm sure I'll be visiting often :) Here's hoping your Dane doesn't get sick again (I know what a mess they make!) :)
