Oh yeah... slowly getting some stamping done.

I do have to say... having two puppies takes quite a lot out of a person. Especially these two puppies, because we treat them like our children.  Moose had another eye surgery on 1/12/11 to hopefully finish correcting his eye problem, and he had an eye removed, so needless to say, the medication, his stitches, and trying to keep the twins separated enough to not have any stitches break has been my main feat.  But.... alas... his stitches come out in two more days, and I have been able to squeeze in some stamping.

Here is Moose and Mai. Moose is on the right, Maiis on the left.

 Awww... he has his arm around her.


This was so thoughtful. This is from my friend Brandy Boccia.  She is a SU Demonstrator (if you are ever interested in classes, you can contact her at ) This is using Stampin' Up's Just Buzzin By set.  Isn't this adorable?!?!?

I made this for my friends Lynn H. and Mary H.  This is using a CTMH set (current), and it is really adorable.

Now... my mother in law called me on Thursday to tell me she had something for me.  I go to her house and see this super bright pink board with all of these lines on it.  It's called The Ultimate Embossing System.  At first, I thought...  hmmm...  what in the world can I do with this. Well... it comes with a 3-hour dvd, which I've only seen maybe an hour of, and this thing is incredible!!!  I can't wait to play with it, but the pups take up so much of my time.
 Sooo....  I thought I would try something quick.  Of course the woman on the dvd makes everything look super easy. That's because she knows what she is doing...  I have no clue! HAHAHAH!!!  I figured I would try something that looked super simple, and to my surprise... it was.  This isn't my best work, I did this as a quick card.....

Here is the front of the card...
And here is the inside of the card; 
What do you think?  Not bad for a quick 5-minute k-card?  I used dental floss on the star, and it's actually two stars taped back to back with the floss in the center, so the star twirls in the center.  SOOOO nifty!! I can't wait to share this with my friends!!


  1. Hey, the card turned out great! I watched a video over the weekend about your new toy, it looks pretty darn neat! Have fun!

  2. Nice job! Sorry to hear about Moose's eyes :(

  3. I loved reading your post. As the mother to Twin Boxers (5-1/2 months old), I know exactly how challenging it is to parent two puppies! I am finally getting time to stamp again. Your five minute card is fab!
