Assembly Required.

I quietly disappeared into my craft room for two hours tonight and used some of the images I've been coloring this week to produce four cards that I am very pleased with. Thanks again to my Image Swap sisters!


First is a card using Farm Fever. The green layers are from the olive collection of paper from SU. I can't remember where I got the card base itself. It was one of those packages of precut and folded cards with envelopes that Michael's or AC Moore carries.


















The next card uses an image from one of SU's Valentine's Day stamps. I got the image in a trade and had great fun with it (Thanks again Sisters!). I haven't added a sentiment yet, I'll do that when I know who I am sending it to. The panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug "You" folder. Paper is from Target. Got to love the $1 Spot!!!



















The crocodile came from the same set as the porcupine. Inside, the sentiment is, "To someone with a very big heart!" Paper is from SU--Christmas collection I think.























This little chick is was an image from Flossie. It is adorable. The striped paper in the background brightens the whole thing up and ties it together nicely. It is a little out of balance but think I like it that way.













And finally, a picture of my cuddle-bug Scully. She is our 8-year-old miniature Schnauzer. She is a great dog and is keeping my lap warm as I type.

Very cute cards, Lori!
And love the picture of your pup (no matter their age, to me they are always puppies!). I only wish Charlie could sit on my lap - but he's over 100 lbs. LOL I'm content with kisses and we taught him to jump up half-way onto the couch my saying, in my case, "Love the Sissy". It's just about the best thing in the world! Dogs Rule!
Hugs,
Catherine
