a few cards...

I am really really really trying to love Pacific Point (or, at the very least, use some of it up!)... I don't hate this card.

I'm not really a red person, but the Riding Hood red and gorgeous new taffeta ribbon look so elegant for this, I think!

The inspiration for the above card came from Kelli's card... LOVED the snowman-belly-shaker thing so I changed it up a bit!

More of my usual favourites... nesties, ribbon & felt flowers!

My new CB embossing folder looks just gorgeous with just a bit of glitter and ribbon...

I totally CASEd this beautiful card... I adore these colours together!

CUTE slippers!

... expensive (probably too expensive to just walk around the house & get covered in dog hair!), but cute, & comfy!

happy mail today...

for all of us (well, except for Shawn, but he's enjoying the high life in Calgary right now, so I guess that's OK, eh? Besides, he should be happy that I'm happy, right?)

This made me smile...

Cute marketing!

Doggytopia sells Red Dingo brand pet tags and I loved the cute enamel designs and the colours, so I got one for each of the boys... (there are several designs available but I didn't want the boys to feel I played favourites, so they each got the same one in one of my favourite colours!).

Ultra quick service - I ordered Tuesday and they were shipped Friday and they arrived today! At $13 each, they're only slightly more than the tags I used to get engraved at PetCetera, but they look so much better, and they are heavy duty and cute!
