On Monday we added a new addition to the sister got a new puppy. He is a Botson Terrier and she has named him Auggie (short for Augustine, yep, like the saint). 

He is the most adorable little thing EVER!!!! He even snores! He weighed 1.9lbs when we picked him up and he was so tiny. He was the biggest one when his litter was born but somehow became the littlest puppy! Oh but he is so cute.

Here is a card I completed a little while ago. I am in need of baby seems everyone I know is getting pregnant so always good to have a few extra on hand.

NSD Kraftin Kimmie Challenge #5 - Boys will be Boys

Hi All!!
Back with another of Kimmie's National Scrapbooking Day Krop challenges. This time it is Jenny's challenge Boys Will Be BOYS! Her challenge was to make any card as long as it had some boyish charm.

I know I have said this before but I find boy/male cards the hardest to do...girls...sure easy peasy, some bling, flowers and the color pink and you're good...boys....whole other story!

So as per Jenny's suggestion I am getting down and dirty with a boy card. 

So for this card - which turned out AMAZING!!! Don't you think??

I used Kraftin Kimmie's Down on the Farm stamp set. This set comes with three adorable little kids and several sentiments to match. SO CUTE!

Isn't this little guy the cutest!

Supplies Used:
Paper: Best Creation Inc. (Farm Life) 
Misc. Supplies: Pebbles (Pearl Candy Dots), Burlap, CTMH (badge buttons), spellbinders

So this is post No.2 today on this lovely beautiful day in Ontario.

This was hard for me as I am at a crop and didn't bring any celebration stuff....goes to show you I clearly didn't read the challenge. I actually had some baby stamps which worked perfect!

I created this card for my friend's daughter as she just had her first baby a short time ago. Congrats Jessica and Adam! May you get some sleep soon.

Paper: Chantilly (CTMH)
