Am I Too Late For Cake Card

This is the other belated birthday card I needed.

I scoured my friend’s Facebook page, looking for photos & videos of her dogs. I discovered I need  A LOT more practice coloring dogs (and black is particularly difficult) that are supposed to look like actual real dogs!

The cake was originally going to be yellow cake with chocolate ganache between the layers. It is those colors. BUT, I know that chocolate is not a dog friendly food item, so, please use your positive imagination to come up with a ganache flavor that would work for dogs. Maybe kibble ganache?

Supplies: Stamps – Essentials by Ellen, Lawn Fawn, Impression Obsession, paper – My Mind’s Eye Hello World, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Soft Sky, inks – Copic B02, BV29, E23, E51, R02, Y17, 110, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Essentials by Ellen (cake), Lawn Fawn (dogs), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Stampendous Detail Clear.

Flip Flop Color Wheel Card

For the last two weeks, I have been struggling with the billing department of my dentist (note: As of Friday, the struggle appears to have been resolved in my favor. I am a skeptic, so, time will tell!). One day last week, one of the phone calls sent me over the edge…I needed RETAIL THERAPY on a budget! I ended up at Newton’s Nook…and I am am thrilled with the products I selected, the shipping cost, and the shipping time

I knew what I wanted to do with the flip flops before I even got the package open.

I used my handmade wreath building tool (inspired by GinaK Designs Wreath Builder Templates ) to position the flip flops perfectly.

Supplies: Stamps – Newton’s Nook, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake, Real Red, inks – Stampin’ Up! Brilliant Blue (retired), Glorious Green (retired), Lovely Lilac (retired), Night of Navy, Only Orange (retired), Pink Passion (retired), Real Red, YoYo Yellow (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampendous Detail clear, twine – MarkerPOP.
