Precious Moments Card

Hi Everyone!! Happy Saturday to all of you! I haven't inked this "Precious Moments" stamp for such a long time. It was in a basket downstairs in the family room. I had put it in the basket with the intention of inking it up but never got around to doing it.

Isn't this image so adorable? I really love the Precious Moments stamps. I heard that the Precious Moments collection had been discontinued and are now considered "collectibles".

I just wanted to let you know about my sketches. . .they're not meant to be challenges so many times my sketches are really simple. I just want to show the layout to my cards and if you love to follow sketches, I post them for you to use. A few people have asked about submitting their sketch challenge cards but unless I state that it is a sketch challenge. . .my sketches are just for any one to use if you like to follow sketches. I post a sketch for the majority of cards I post.

Here is a close up of my card. You can't really see in the image but I applied Stickles glitter to the flowers. In person, the flowers are sparkly looking.

Anyway hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!

Introducing Phoenix

This is my dog Phoenix. He is 6 years old and he has been part of the family since he was a 6 week old baby. He is a pure bred "Bichon Frise". We don't groom him like the typical Bichon because it's too much work to give him the helmet head look. LOL! Phoenix is very shy and obedient. He is a bit clumsy too. He is very conservative and not very adventurous. There were a few occasion when we've accidentally left our back gate open and he has never tried to escape. His step-brother "Dakota" will be off running and Phoenix would sit by the gate and just bark in distress knowing his brother is being a bad boy. LOL! Just to let you know, we have two indoor cats and two outdoor dogs. We can't keep the two sets of animals together. Although they get along nicely, they can't tolerate one another for too long of a time. Cats have a tendency to run away and get run over by cars, so the dogs had to to be the ones outdoor.

My mom collected Precious Moment figurines for years. They have been packed up and stored since she moved into a nursing home but your card brought back how much she enjoyed collecting them. It is beautiful.

Phoenix is adorable! My sister had a BF for years! She was a sweetheart with what sounds like a similar personality to Phoenix.
