I hear you call my name.

Half way through the week! Good morning! Hope the first half of the week has been good to all of you.

Challenge #1: Sketchy Thursdays is up with a brand new blog site, co-founder Heidi (with Diana), DT and prizes. It has been a totally fabulous makeover!!! Hopefully they will get lots of entries! Go on over - they are doing lots of fun give-a-ways!!

Here is the sketch of the week:

And my entry - BTW: this is my husband Derek and our doggy Mr. Peepers (the brat). Don't worry our dog was not drinking that day (that came later in the evening - J/K!)


Ingredients: Doggy paper is old - I have no idea who makes it; K&Co borders; Recollections embellishments.


Challenge #2:
SPCC is up with another color challenge - who doesn't love a good color challenge!?!? Go on over and check it out - great group of crafty gals!

For my entry this week, I did the infamous owl stamp - he sure gets around!

I am finally getting the hang of paper distressing!

My little apple tree - I was digging around in one our bushes for an old twig last night and couldn't see a thing - all in the name of craftiness:

More paper distressing, I used a pad of ink for the middle of the "moon" and sanded the edges with sandpaper:

Card Ingredients: Recollections Autumn paper and apple embellishment; Recollections owl stamp and cardstock; Making Memories brads; twig :)

Happy Wednesday!!!!

Both of those are AWESOME!!! And I believe I have some of that doggy paper somewhere.....
Never used it cause I was unsure what to do with it. I really like how you paired it with the bright green border and I love that doghouse!!!
And of course I love your owl card!! Is that a rubber stamp?? where did you get it????? I want one!!!!! LOL :)

I love that you used a twigg on your card! I would never think to do something like that.
And that layout is fantastic, everyone should have at least one layout about their dog!

Emily said...

That twig goes perfectly! Love that owl.

So cute.

Glad you joined us this week at SPCC!!

Brenda said...

awww love your ST layout!Love your lil fur baby! I really had a tough time today with mine!!
The twig was so worth your trip in the dark..very clever and the perfect addition!

Chrissy said...

Wow, you are a superstar! I love both of your creations today- and that doggy of yours- soooooo sweet. I can see that he likes to celebrate Canada Day the Canadian way ;0 That twig on the owl is just adorable. My offer for twine is always open-I have a few big spools of it. I can make cards in piles and never use it all! Just let me know and I'll get some to you-doesn't even have to get through customs, lol.

Oh my gosh Deanne, you totally blow me away. How do you manage to complete two entires daily? You're super woman and super talented. I love the personal touch of your first card, with photos of Derek and Peeps. The dog house is so cute. And the colors, owl twig, etc., that you used in your second card are amazing. I'd give anything to have a creative mind and pair of hands, like you do. I haven't seen any scrapping, crafting, decorating, etc., that comes even close in comparison, to your work. Bravo!!!! :) :) :)

Kelly said...
