I’m sorry


 Happy weekend!   

I’ve had my adorable twin granddaughters over this weekend and we were makin’ cards.  And, since the girls were coloring, grandma HAD to color too.    They chose this older Whipper Snapper puppy for me ~ he’s called Sorry Pup.



The DP is one that I’ve had in my stash for quite awhile, it is from a company called Colorbok.  We thought the daisies matched pretty well with those on the stamp.   I added some screw head brads and a cute little charm that I embellished with some Distress Stickles in Antique Linen.     

Now who could be mad at a cutie like this!?   



Thanks for visiting today!     Don’t forget to stop back on Monday for another House Mouse Challenge.     🙂

Just a quick one … from today’s Inspiration Challenge  over at Splitcoast Stampers.    Wow,  I’m amazed at how quickly a card can be made with little or no coloring!   This was my first-ever circle card ~ got the old drawing compass out (literally old – left over school supply from when my kids were in school) and had fun!




The Inspiration Challenge was based on the website  Chasing FirefliesI chose this adorable little lamb rattle as my inspiration for this card:26202_P

I found this Whipper Snapper stamp in January (!) at a clearance sale from the WS store called Creative Pals  ….   it was  $3.00!!   🙂    Needless to say, I found lots of  WS stamps that were sooooo on SALE and this is my first time inking one of them up!!             

Yes, my name  is Mary and I’ve got a problem!  

Hope you’re enjoying your weekend….it’s beautiful here in Wisconsin!

I think I love you… (sing it with me!)

Awww…what a cute “little” face!  🙂    I really love this “big” guy from Whipper Snapper and with the little heart above his head, this sentiment from Gina K Designs just seemed to be perfect for him!

I think I love you

Unfortunately, the entire time I was working on this card, I was singing the song!!   (For those of you who are too young to remember, there was a group called the Partridge Family…with cutie pie David Cassidy, back in the 80s, I think, who sang this song!)

You Light Up My Life :)



Now you tell me, Who could resist that face?? 

 . . . Well, I couldn’t!  😀


This is another stamp from Whipper Snapper called Plug-In Reindeer…love the name.

I added some mini bulbs on his antlers & around the sentiment, and a little bell around his neck (well, maybe a big bell!).  His coat is cut from red flocked paper and has mini rhinestones applied.  His body is colored with Copics, cut out and attached with dimensionals.

The sentiment is computer generated; And, unfortunately, the entire time I was working on it, that song was going through my mind!!!   It’s a nice song, but not exactly one you want stuck in your head all night!  🙂

Hope he’s not too gaudy….sometimes, I just like simple cards, but other times ~ I get totally carried away!

Too Cute!
