Hello there...


Sad to say but car shopping was a bust yesterday. The dealership that I really wanted to check out wasn't open and I just didn't have anything else catch my eye. So I'm planning a trip back down there in a week or so when I have another day off to try again. It's a bit disappointing but I'm still hopeful about finding that perfect car for me. :)

Today I've made a very CAS card that was totally inspired by my bloggin' buddy Jenny. Jenny is the owner of Sister Stamps and when she was having reveals for their April release she made a super cute card using the SS Dog stamp and a Memory Box window die, which you can see here. Not only did I fall in love with that adorable pup but she inspired me to get that window die as well... such an enabler, LOL!
I also have to thank my pal Tress because she got the Dog stamp for me while she was shopping in Hawaii during her recent vacation, how sweet is that?! I did a tiny bit of altering by cropping the pup's curly tail into a little stub so that when I colored him up in the beige and grey combo he would look just like my own Yorkie.  And this is a scene that I see most every time that I get home from work so making this card really put a smile on my face. :)

Before I sign off I'm going to recommend you hop on over to the Sister Stamps blog because I noticed that they have chances to win their upcoming June stamps which include three amazing mermaids. So be sure to check that out!
