Celebration time!

Well, it has been awhile since I posted but my life has been a little busy around here. My dad had a heart attack on Christmas night and thankfully he is doing well but that sort of put a kink in my mojo. But hopefully I am back on track and just in time to show you my latest card for Tiddly Inks.


Our challenge this week is all about "Celebration" and what better to celebrate than the pets in all of our lives. I have two cats, Sinbad and Lucy, and they mean the world to me. This image is called Girls Best Friend and although I don't have a dog I would love to! I have used Basic Grey Picadilly paper, some glitter brads, liquid pearls and my new picot edge die from Cheery Lynn. You will definitely be seeing a lot more of it! Alright, let's see what you have to celebrate and make sure you add your link for a chance to win some free digis! And Christy also has a couple of new characters in the store, make sure hop over and check them out!   

PS In all the calamity around my house I didn't realize that Christy is also having a sale, but only for 36 hours so make sure you get your list ready and check out the new Wryn and Silver images, I am tellin' ya, you are gonna want them all!

Amanda I love this card & that wonderful new Cheery Lynn die ... I can see this is going on my new order to them. Their dies are so amazing & cut like a dream.
Your image is the cutest & putting the pearls around the die is the perfect touch.
Hugs, Janie

Hi Amanda, I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. I hope he is recovering quickly. I see your mojo has returned in force with the creation of this wonderful card! Our pets are so important and mean so much to us :) I have 3 rascally kitties at home that feel like the world revolves around them, so I totally get it :D Hugz to you ~ Cheryl

So sorry about you father, I hope he recovers quickly.

Can I tell you how much I love the border die cut you used, need to get that one. How fun. Your paper piecing is flawless and you could not have found a better sentiment. Great start to the year, the card I mean, not your dad.
