Hello again!  Another absence yesterday due to having to take my silly shar-pei Smokey (say that 10x fast LOL) back to the vet for about the 8th time in 6 weeks, this time we had to get NEW stitches because one of the areas where stitches had been removed on Friday had come open over the weekend.  He will have these stitches in for 3 weeks, so I am praying that we will not have to make any trips to the vet between now and then!

Anyway, I have 2 creations to share today with images from SOFTPENCIL STUDIOS.  You can find the digi  images as well as a line of clear stamps, stickers and rub-ons at SOFTPENCIL SHOP.

One more thing, PART 2 of our customer/DT anniversary blog hop is going on NOW and part 3, which includes all the DT members, will begin Friday, so make sure you check that out SOFTPENCIL BLOG to get the order of the current hop – LOTS of prizes available to win!!

So for my first creation, I have used Charmy the Butterfly (notice she has antenae).  I just love this little cutie.  I colored her with my Copics and cut out using Lifestyle Crafts dies.  Sentiment from Verve is cut with MFT die.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls are from Martha Stewart Crafts, papers are Coredinations CS and Basic Grey DP.  I hope you like it!

I am entering the following challenges:
PAPERMINUTES – newest stamp (I have just received this stamp last week)
SASSY CHERYL – butterflies
TOP TIP TUESDAY – spotty dotty
LOVE TO CREATE – friends
LEXI’S CREATIONS – use punches and dies
PAPER SUNDAES – anything goes

For my second creation, I have used another little sweetie, Lilly.  I have colored her with Copics and cut out using Lifestyle Crafts die on image and Nesties on frame as well as sentiment, which is from MFT.  Bling is Prima and ribbon is Offray.  CS is Bazzill and DP is from  I sure hope you like this.

Sorry to hear about your sweet doggie, I had no idea you even had one. Gee just when you think you know someone. LOL. Hope he heals quickly with no more trips to the vet.
