CQC #177 & FMS #74 ~ Congratulations!

Happy Friday! Anything special planned for your weekend? We have a game night planned with our son and daughter-in-law ~ yay! But let's start with my morning shall we. We had freezing rain start this morning so of course ALL concrete is a sheet of ice. Thought maybe I could walk down the front yard and let Max stroll along to do his thing *wink*! He decided to visit the tree and mailbox. Little paws hit the sidewalk and he was slip sliding away. Poor baby was terrified. So....I scooped him up and thought I would just let him roam the back yard for a while ~ you know little pups must go. Well there was a patio for him to cross that totally freaked him out! Poor baby managed his way to the yard and when the job was complete he gave me the sad puppy eyes with one paw on the edge on the patio! It took some REAL bribery with a treat to get him to cross the patio and come back in LOL! I was picturing myself crawling along sheet of ice patio to get the little goober LOL. Oh the drama we had. Anyhoo I doubled up on two challenges today (The ColourQ & Freshly Made Sketches) and came up with this.

 
My PTI mat stack 5 stamp served the purpose for my shape then I added a DeNami circle stamp sentiment with some tiny PTI flowers and leaves by Hero Arts. I stamped the same leaves on my tag, tied a twine bow and popped it up with foam tape. Next I added a die cut PTI bloom, SU button and gems. And there you have it. 


Okay temps have risen to the mid 30's think I'll see if I can convince Max to take a short stroll...wish me luck!! ~Lisa

Lisa, LOVE your tag and how you incorporated the colors with that sketch! Your card is very Fresh and Pretty!

Ice is one of those things I could definitely live without! Our driveway extends up a bit of a steep hill and when we get ice, our boys go sledding on it! :) I don't blame Max for being leery of that concrete...I would be too!

Love, love, LOVE your card! The kraft with that beautiful blue is just gorgeous and the pop of red in the baker's twine...fantastic! :)
