Thank You!

The colors look great, but the card looks flat!

This photo shows the dimension . . .

Hi Everyone!

Today I am sharing a fun card I made using an Action Wobble for the first time.  The little puppy is from Create-a-critter.  I made this card to give to my in-laws from our sweet little dog Curley to thank them for dog sitting while we were away on vacation.  They spoiled him so much he almost didn't want to come home!! lol!

I am trying different ways to take pictures.  I posted two so that you could see the difference.  In the first photo you can see the dimension.  In the second photo the card looks flat, but the colors look better. . .  I see I need to work on this!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

PS - If you are looking for my give away click here.

I am also entering this in two challenges:
MycraftspotIt's HOT out there! (use hot, bright colors on your project)
Cricut Cardz"Straight from the Heart"! Make a thank you card using hearts, and any cartridges or colors you’d like, but NO pink or red - unfortunately I did not read the fine print and used red hearts - it's fun to play along any who. . .

My Recipe:
Dog - Create-a-critter.
Bubble & Hearts - Imagine built-in shape
Paper - DCWV - Glitter stack & Pets stack
Punch - EK Success paw border punch
Glossy Accents

Birthday Sundaes - Cakes and Cupcakes Birthday Blog Hop!

A happy little flower to carry birthday wishes. . .

Seize the cupcake for a delicious day!

Hi Everyone!!

Hope you are all terrific today!  I want to thank everyone for visiting my blog!  I love reading all your comments!!   I will visit your blog soon and check out all your wonderful projects.  Also, thank you so much for all the tips on photography.  I took these pictures using your tips.  I am going to keep working at this until I can find the right formula. . . 

Today I am sharing a card I made for the Birthday Sundaes Cakes and Cupcakes Blog Hop, you can check it out here.  There are so many inspiring creations from the design team and all the links - not to mention some great giveaways along the way!

I wanted to try something a little different with a slightly monochromatic look.  I started looking through my paper stacks and the DCWV Lemon Flower stack just jumped out at me!  I used my Imagine to create the script paper and lots of pop dots for dimension.  I also embossed the sentiment using silver embossing powder.  What do you think?

Don't forget to enter for my Michael's gift card giveaway (see the link to the left above).

Thanks for visiting and have a GREAT week!!

Flower - Kate's ABCs
