Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! I did not do too much in the way of crafting but rather had some quality family time and some time to work out in the yard. Sometimes it is good to take a break from crafting to stay fresh with ideas and some added excitement when you get back into it. In the coming weeks there are going to be some fun new releases, so today it is back to getting busy!!!!

This week the product spotlight at Stamp & Create is Wags ‘n Whiskers. Since it is the product spotlight, it also means it is 25% off!! I created a card using the adorable Bear Hug!! I used some colors I don't normally use to match the Basic Grey Green at Heart Paper and Basic Grey Nook and Pantry. I incorporated the Going Grey With Snap Creations challenge to use three embellishments and use Basic Grey dp.The sketch was from this past Tuesday's 70th sketch at Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.

Stamps: Wags n Whiskers: Bear Hugs , SU Priceless (flourish)

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper: Basic Grey Green at Heart Paper, Basic Grey Nook and Pantry
Embellishments and tools: Prima trellis roses-Ivory, bear charm, May Arts Ivory Scalloped edge ribbon, Bow Easy

For more inspiration using these gorgeous Wags n Whiskers image, please visit, Joy, Jeanette and Niki.


This past weekend Crissy Armstrong posted a new challenge for her Sunday's with Crissy using her digis!! This week's challenge is to use dots!! I love these sweet new digis that Crissy created that Whimsy sells at their store so I just had to play along. I decided to make a birthday party favor using Gift Horse. I colored it with copics.

I used some dp from SEI with dotted flowers and the Swiss dots folder for behind the image. I filled the inside with M&M's.

A fabulous card ... and I LOVE that adorable treat cone! Absolutely wonderful, Chris!

Totally agree with the 'weekend off' ... you won't burn-out if you take some down time. Not that you would ever burn-out ... you have more talent in your fingers than most of us have in our whole bodies, lolol!
