Pet sympathy card

My daughter needed a sympathy card to send to her good friend who's family dog passed away. The sweet little dog was a Shih tzu and my daughter insisted that I needed to make a card with a Shih tzu that looked just like her friends little dog. Our little furry children are such a huge part of our family. I knew that my daughters friend and family were going through a very sad time. So this is the card that I made for them.
Recipe: Shih tzu digi stamp
K&Company dp ABRIANNA
Spellbinders Nestabilities Big Scalloped Ovals LG
Certainly Celery ribbon
Lace is from my stash
Pearls are SU
Paper roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts White and Deep Pink
The leaves were made with my new Marianne Die. I love the lacy look of the pretty leaves.
Thank you so much for looking!

"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus", Card

I just finished making my first Christmas card this year! I got this digital stamp from Fresh Brewed Digi's and it's called, "Meet Me Under The Misteltoe". This stamp was a lot of fun to color!
I used Baja Breeze SU cardstock and SU designer paper.
I tore around my colored image so that I would have more space on my card for paper and embellishments.
I used crystal effects and glitter on the fur of the dress and added tiny pearls to her boots. Red stones worked out perfectly for the mistletoe.
The lace, ribbon, Bling and tule is from my stash of treasures.

I am entering this card in the following challenges...

This is the second card that I made with little "Grace Summertime" from the Fresh Brewed Design Shop! They have a challenge at the Latte Lounge to make a card using Pink and Aqua.

I colored little Grace with my copic markers.
The cardstock is Stampin Up Pretty In Pink and Regal Rose.
The designer paper is "Sweet Nectar" from K&Company

"Connected Girl" Birthday Card

I'm so happy that the weekend is here and I will be able to "Play" some more!
This morning I made a birthday card for a young lady that used to come to my daycare! She is a teenager now so I couldn't make her a cutesy card.
I was so excited when I found this digital stamp at Phindy's Place! It's always exciting when you find an image that actually looks like the person that you would like to make the card for! Philomena O'Neill is the very talented artist and her work is outstanding! She has so many great digital stamps to choose from for every occasion!
Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog has a SKETCH challenge, so I used their sketch while making this card so that I could join the challenge!
