Jump for Joy!

Hello my crafty friends!
I have been making cards, mostly thank you cards but decided to "branch" away and make a "froggie" card for my son's girlfriend and include a book mark as well.  Ali came with my son to visit us for Christmas and she is just adorable!
Matt and Ali
Here is the card and bookmark I made:
middle part folds open
I think she has found her Prince!
This card was made using scraps that are on my work table, including the frog cut which is from the Paisley cartridge and is cut at three inches.  The sentiment stamps are from CARDZTV STAMPS (SHOP HERE).
Have a great weekend!

Pet Layout

Happy Sunday everyone!

This is such a busy time of year!  Buying gifts...wrapping presents, putting lights on the house, decorating the just goes on and on!  Now that is done...time to go to the grocery store, purchase some fun ingredients and bake some cookies!  Ok, I admit it.  I did not do one thing except watch Billy DO IT ALL.  Just love my hubby!  I have been a little "under the weather" so Billy got elected to do all of the work!  I can tell he enjoyed it.

Billy purchased some pet costumes for our two little dogs and we had a wonderful laugh at their faces while we took pictures!

This is Calhoun, our white chocolate miniature schnauzer
OJ (for Otis, Jr.)  He would not sit still for an individual photo.
I decided to send these pictures to Walgreen's to print and make a quick layout for the photos.  Although they are dressed up in Santa outfits, I decided to make a generic theme.
This layout took about 20  minutes to make.  The paw paper is from a pack of paper I picked up at Tuesday Morning....the burlap was a gift from Susan of  Thank you Susan!  Large paw is from the Paper Pups Cricut cartridge cut at 2.5 inches.  "Fur Babies" letters are felt stickers.  The adorable paw button, dog button, dog bone and little adorable mini hearts were a gift from Janis at  Thank you Janis!
I did not want a journaling spot because I think the pictures speak for themselves.  I decided to use Cardztv's "Barks and Bones" stamp set.  You can check out Mary's awesome stamps HERE.  The comment bubble for the  "BOW WOW! was printed at 3/4 of an inch.  It is also from Paper Pups.
Thank you so much, my friends, for stopping by.  Check back soon....we have an upcoming CARDZTV Stamps Challenge very soon!  I will have blog candy to give away in addition to Mary's giveaway for the challenge.
