Uh-Oh... Somebody's In Trouble...

We have several four-legged friends who live in our house. One of these precious darlings thought it would be a good idea to tear up my craft magazine and eat my snack I left on the coffee table. OK, so I should not have tempted them with the food, but still, I was not a happy camper to walk back into the room to see a torn-up paper mess and my candy bar gone.  Somebody's in trouble....

  I lined up all 4 babies, who were very happy to give me their attention because they thought I was about to toss some treats their way.  Instead, I pointed out my finger and said, "Who did this?"  Can you believe one of the babies sulked out of the room and went and hid under the bed?! LOL  It's not funny... well, it is a little bit.  

And since that particular doggie belongs to my son who is currently in another state playing Army, I decided to make a card and send it to my son which reads something like this, "Please come home soon. I tore up your Mommie's magazine and ate her chocolate. I need you."  And I included a picture of little angel in the card too.

A friend asked me to send her son a card.  He is currently serving in the U.S.Army.  I found this digi stamp in my digi files on my computer and decided to color it.  I decided not to stamp a sentiment...just wanted something generic.  Masculine cards are so difficult!  Thanks Alee' the flower!

Old West Cartridge

Listed above is a card that I made for a good friend to send to a loved one.  It is a tri-fold card and was cut at 3.75 inches.  The matching envelope was cut at "Fit to Page".  Cartridge used was the Old West cartridge.  Horses cut at 1.75 inches; Yee-Haw sentiment cut at 2 inches.  This card was very easy to make and my friends just loved it.  I will definitely have to use this cartridge more often!
