No Bones About It...

It's good to be home from vacation! We had a great time and my kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves ( as did their parents!) but Dorothy was right...there's no place like home. And for a scramper like me, being away from my stuff is just hard. No matter how busy I am, doing really fun things, I am always thinking about my next project...that picture of the kids is so cute, it's going to make a great page...oh look at those flowers, I'll have to remember that color combo for a card...and so on. I think that means I am hooked in the worst way, huh? Which brings me to today's card. I sat down at the first opportunity to stamp a little and worked on Jen Del Muro's SFYTT from this week. What a fun sketch! It worked really well with some new stamps of mine too. I finally broke down and ordered Pat the Dawg House from Our Craft Lounge. I already had Pat the Bad Dog but what dog is happy without a dog house? Not Pat! So, how about a card?

I don't have any apology cards in my Etsy shop so I thought one was in order. You never know when you might need to smooth a few feathers with a kind word. Pat the Dog can help you. I like cards that include a snetiment that is split between the front and inside of the card. This sketch is just darling despite its simplicity. I'll be happy to answer any questions though. Just let me know! I hope your week is off to a great start. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a cute card! I love the surprise inside with the sweet apology and cute little Pat. Your coloring is fabu!

  2. Just darling Kyla! Love the colors you chose for those oh so cute images! I do like having stamps that can be used on the inside and outside. Makes the inside so much more interesting. Glad you had a great vacation with your family!
