The world to me...

Hello, hello!

I hope everyone is fine and dandy today. I've got a long day ahead of me at work but I'm feeling pretty good.  Lots to do and get done, hopefully I will be able to cross a bunch of things off my to-do list.

My card today features an older stamp from Lili of the Valley called Milly me and my dog. I guess I've had her for quite a while because I couldn't even find the stamp on their site to link up to. I modeled this pair of sweet swingin' pals after my sister Tracy and her new pup, Jinx. Jinx is so cute, half Westie half Maltese, all white except for a sprinkling of light brown "freckles" on her ears. With the image being such a scene all by itself I wanted to keep the rest of the card super simple. I'm kinda falling in love with my dies again for this very reason, especially the stitched looking ones. They add a great finishing touch on an otherwise CAS design. 

Alrighty, I guess I should go get myself ready... another day, another dollar.  :)
