Introducing Bella.........

Meet the newest addition to our family! She's the cutest little Rottie puppy that my granddaughter named "Bella". She's a "love" & only 3 months old with the longest legs. We've all fallen in love with her.

Our family dog is such an important member of our family. Chloe left a gigantic hole in our hearts that could only be filled by another furbaby to love.

Thanks for sharing in my joy!

Our beloved Golden is gone now............

We had to put our 5 yr old Golden Retriever "Chloe" to sleep this morning. She lost her battle with cancer. The doctor gave her 3 to 6 months to live back in May........she lasted 4 more months.

Such a sad day for our family. She was a beloved friend & companion to all of us. We will miss her so much........................

Another sweet Tilda card to share

I made this for another dear friend who's birthday is next week. I'm also entering 2 more challenges. YAY

The first challenge is Friday Sketchers #68. This is the sketch I followed (I turned it sideways).....

The second challenge is Pink Elephant #31.....a color challenge.....Red, Yellow, Black & White. There's just a splash of yellow in the flowers & brads.

I used the same Copics as the other Tilda holding balloons card. I just reversed the colors on her dress & the balloons.

Thanks for looking again!

Sweet Tilda holding balloons

I made this birthday card for a dear friend who's going through a rough patch right now so I thought it would perk her up a bit. She's very special to me.

I used Magnolia's Tilda holding balloons as my focal image. This stamp can be found at Diana's shoppe "Magnolia-licious" HERE. I have fallen in love with these precious little girls.

I am also using this card to enter 2 challenges. The first one is at the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog. We were to follow this darling sketch made by Mina.

The second challenge is at Charisma Cardz Challenge Blog using Challenge #35 Swirls, Curlz & hearts (I hope my one heart still qualifies me).

Wish me luck & Happy Birthday to my dear sweet friend (I can't say who she is until after her birthday......giggles)!

Card Recipe:
DP – Prima Studio D “The First Blush”
Prima flowers
“Best Occasions” Rhinestone Swirls
Versa Magic Chalk Ink “Wheat”
Copics: R20, R22, E000, E00, E02, E31, E33, E41, W0, W1, W3, G85
