Denami Blog Hop!

Hi there, and welcome to my stop on the Denami Blog Hop! You should've just arrived here from Virginia Larsen's blog. If so, welcome! If you're just joining the hop, you may want to start at the Denami Design blog.

The theme of today's hop is Cuddly Critters, and I've got a darling one to share with you. Have you met their cute little mouse? I'll admit, a mouse isn't usually the first critter I want to cuddle with, but once you see Denami's, you'll understand why I just fell in love with the little guy. Wanna see?

I love how easy it is to have him and his friends peeking out from the holes in my hunk of homemade Swiss cheese. Fun!

Be sure to comment to be eligible to win one of those two $20 Denami gift certificates (given to people who comment along the hop), and thanks for stopping by!

Next stop: Laurel Beard's blog.

Pink and Navy

Well, I don't have a lot to show for four days off. Somehow, the weekend whipped by in a flurry of activities away from home: a doggie playdate, a museum visit, a trip up to Sacramento to celebrate the four year anniversary of Paper Garden, and the movies "Bucket List," and "Machete." I did manage to make this simple card though.

My card stash is seriously lacking in birthday and thank you cards, so I'm making it my mission to make some in a variety of themes. Here's the first quickie. Last week, my boss came in wearing a navy dress and a pink sweater, and I loved it as a color scheme. I added gray and light blue, and voila! a card was born.

Have a great day!

The Dog Days of Summer

Holy cow! Can you believe that it's September already? August just whipped by me. Every weekend we had something going on, from a visit to our county fair to a wedding to a trip to Reno to a comedy show. I'm looking forward to September being the dog days of summer and a little mellower.

Speaking of dogs, today's cards were quickies that I made up using strictly scraps from another project I was working on. The coordinating scraps were all sitting together so I figured I'd try and use them up.

The patterned paper is by Heidi Swapp. From a cardmaker's perspective, it's often hard to find smaller patterns on 12x12 paper for making cards, but this one fits the bill nicely. The blue paper is by Coredinations, and the yellow is by Bazzill. The stamps are from a mini set from Basic Grey that I picked up at my LSS.

Have a great day!
