Welcome Aurora

The Chenoweth family would like to introduce our newest member: Aurora. Rory is a registed Yellow Lab puppy. She's 8 weeks old and full of life! She's the sweetest little girl, and really likes to sleep at my feet!

David is estatic of course. He loves that the puppy is so small! Though we do have issues with Rory trying to eat Davy's clothes off him!

Thomas is tolerant of her. He doesn't appreciate the puppy hanging on him, but doesn't mind running around the house or back yard with her hot on his heals! Too Cute!

Bunny Hugs Basket

I absolutely love the Spring Mini Catalog! The papers are so neat, the stamps are as cute as can be and I really enjoy the colors! Yay Stampin' Up! for such great products!

Recently I went to my friend Linda's house and made the sweetest little baskets with her and another friend Karma. As soon as she emails me the pictures I'll be posting them. I knew that this project would be totally cool with our Spring Mini papers and stamps, but didn't have time to put one together until today. Here's what I came up with.

I used So Saffron and Pretty in Pink card stock with the Petals and Paisley Double Sided Designer Paper. Just stamp the little bunny friend on WW card stock and colored in the nose and ears with Blush Blossom. He was mounted on Pretty in Pink then pop-dotted onto the side of the basket. Tie some Organdy and Grosgrain ribbon at the top and you're all set!

For those who require it, here is a diagram for folding this basket! Click on the image for a larger version! Making this basket is super simple. Start with a 12x12 piece of card stock. Fold along the black lines (at 4 and 8 inches, and then diagonally in the corners) and punch holes at the red dots and you're set to go!

Who Me?

Its nice to step outside our bounds sometimes, don't you think? Here's my latest work. I'm so excited about it because of the "Opposites Attract" font I used on the title. I used Basic Grey's Blush paper, and some MM gems - too cute! The ribbon and font are both Stampin' Up!

I've decided not to make a facing page for this one. It'll go in either the very first or very last slot in my scrapbook.

Anyway, thanks for looking. Check back soon to see what else I've been up to!

Thinking Spring

I had a couple friends over - Linda and Mary Anne - to stamp with me the other day and I had a wonderful time. I hope they enjoyed themselves as much as I did! It was great to sit down with some friends and just play. I don't often get to sit down with other women and stamp other than workshops or classes; so this was a special treat for me!

I made four cards - three of which I'm posting here for you to see today. You can see that I concentrated on using my new Spring Mini Stamp sets. On the first two cards I used Polka Dots & Paisley stamp set along with the Petals Jumbo wheel. I love that these sets look so well together especially when paired with the Petals and Paisley Double sided Designer Paper.

This final card was nice. This color combo has been in the back of my mind for a while and I was so happy to get it out of my system! I used the Double Line Doodle Stamp set (which will be available in the next Idea Book & Catalog in July.) I used Taken with Teal, Basic Black, Whisper White and Rose Red card stock. The middle rectangle is pop-dotted for extra dimension!
