The Paper Variety Challenge & New Additions!

It's Week 5 at The Paper Variety and our challenge
is a super fun card sketch!
Even better is our fabulous sponsor, Lawn Fawn!

Here's the card sketch..
Lawn Fawn has donated Critters in the Sea to award our challenge winner!
Isn't this the cutest stamp set!?

I used American Crafts' Blue Skies papers and rub-ons to create this
sweet and colorful "friend" card.

Simple sketch, AWESOME prize! Hope to see you join the challenge!

~~~~New Additions~~~~

I recently bought a Cuttlebug!!

I've been wanting one forever and finally purchased one
from HSN a couple weeks ago. I've had soooo much fun experimenting
with the few folders I have and can't wait to shop for a few more.
I love this tool and will be using it on many cards in the future. :)

Also, another new addition.. this addition is to our family.

This is Cooper...

We saved him from our local Animal Shelter.
He's a basset hound / beagle mix and about 10 months old.
He is super lovable, house trained and super smart.
We brought him home a week ago and he's already learned a few tricks.
We are sooooo lucky to have found him, he's perfect for our family!

We were a little bit worried how our diva kitty, Logan, would react.
She's been our one and only pet for close to 4 years.
But as you can see here....

Logan and Cooper are getting along just fine!
They nap together everyday :)

I can't wait to create some furry friends layouts! :)
