Wake Up Snoopy #2

This is the same card as the post below.  I have added a black, red and white border to the card as it wasn't quite right without it.  After I posted the photo below I looked at it and thought it needed some 'minor adjustments' - you know how it is!  It didn't photograph well in this shot as I had to use the flash because the sun has set and there isn't good lighting.  This would make a good masculine card!
Okay, thank you for dropping by, {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)

Wake Up Snoopy!


Here is my card I made today!  I got the idea from here   and when you get there go to the Archives and click on April 2014 to find the card Heather's mum made for her son.
I thought it was so cute, and I love Snoopy so I had to make one!
I used my SU oval punch to make Snoopy.  I stamped a funny looking crow to add to is foot.  Looks as if he is about to peck Snoopy and say "Wake up Snoopy!."  Such a fun card to make on a funny wet/sunny day!  One minute is is raining and the next thing it is sunny.  Oh well, Summer IS on it's way soon!  Yippee!

My First Bokeh



This is my first attempt at making a card using the Bokeh technique.  I have used it with my photography but never on a card!   The first photo is the completed card, the second photo is the card before the flower thing was added.  The last photo is a close up of the Bokeh technique.  To see a great video of this technique check out Dawns blog here.  In the search panel type in Bokeh Technique.  This is where I learnt this technique last night.  Thank you Dawn! 
Ok this is my card for today! (So far!) Thank you for dropping by, {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)
P.S. Margaret K, I hope you are stamping!!  You know who you are!

Please Help Me Before I Go Insane!!

I am posting this again as I haven't had a reply to my first post about it. 
Does anyone have  written instructions on how to make a corner fold card?  I have found some but they use a Stampin Up cutter and I don't have one like that.  Mine is a Fiskars one and I can't figure out what the measurements are to cut the card.  Seriously, I am not totally stupid but measurements do my head in!! PLEASE if you can help me, email me sapphirerose@orcon.net.nz  or leave me a note in my comments box!  I am desperate to make some of these cards but need your help!  There must be someone out there on the interweb who can help!
Thank you in advance!
Have a great day, {HUGS} from me to YOU:-)

"Don't Nom My Tail Off!"

 ..."Romeo" say's to "Bella",as they share a spot in the sun!
 They don't usually sleep together but this is the second time recently I have caught them together!  This time I was sitting right beside them when "Bella" decided to join "Romeo" in the sun!  She really wanted the chair I was on, but it was cold and the chair was in the sun and I wasn't moving!  So she jumped up beside "Romeo" and settled herself down to sunbathe!
I think "Romeo" was a bit concerned about his tail touching "Bella!" She had just, very kindly, given it a wash for him, and often she will give his tail a bit of a chomp if it gets in her way!
Anyway we all had our 'place in the sun', and no-one lost an inch or two of their tail!  Cat's, especially these two, amuse me!

Owl Flip Card




I can't remember the name of this card but this is the first one I have made like it.  Lot's of fun!  My thumbs are not obliging me today and keep 'locking' so I can't let go of things!  SOOO frustrating!  I will be glad when summer arrives and I can say "Oh wow, isn't it HOT today!"  And that won't be a complaint as I just love the heat!  I thrive in the humidity while everyone else wilts!  Each to his/her own, I say!
That's all for today, thank you for dropping my{HUGS} from me to YOU:-)

Cat Paw Print Bookmark

I used a Poppy Stamps Die for the paw prints (Cat) and the stamp is from Rubbadubbadoo.  This is much sparklier (is that a real word?!) IRL as I have scribbled my clear gel pen all over it.  Shame it doesn't show up on here!
