Thank you for making me smile!

Hi all and Happy Monday.  I thought this card was fitting for today's post.  I have so many reasons to smile today!  Your comments about Puffle were both heart-warming and entertaining.  Thank you for sharing your stories and pictures of your puppies via e-mail.  That was fun!

I spent the better part of last weekend stamping.  I mean MARATHON style stamping.  I only came out for food, drinks and the occasional stroll around the house.  LOL

Don't miss the details:
  • Machine stitched around the sentiment panel to add interest.  At the lower, right-hand corner, I turned my paper, stitched up in a "beveled" direction, and then started the next stitched frame. 
  • Prima flower rose to cover up the stitching and add some pizazz!
  • Maya Road mini pom pom ribbon... SO cute!
  • Vanilla brads in the corners to lighten in up a bit.
  • Sentiment stamped, then clear embossed to make it "pop" off the patterned paper.
Ink: PTI black
Paper: MME So Sophie, Smokey Black, Aqua Mist
Accessories: Janome sew mini, Prima rose, Maya Road ribbon, vanilla brads, red line tape, red line dimensionals, clear embossing powder

Here is one more quick card I made using Jolinne - Best Friends Always and the new Cloud Trio Die-namics.

Stamps: Jolinne - Best Friends Always
