Muse #29 ~ Thank You!

WhoooWeee it's soupy outside today...yuck! I suppose we're in for storms this afternoon, hope they blow this humidity away! Days like this are perfect to stay in and make a card or two. I have one to share for the Muse challenge featuring Laurie Willison as the Monday Muse. I love Laurie's work and wanted to have a go at recreating my version of her card!


I love the way this one turned out and I only used one stamp! I have a collection of October Afternoon products that I must admit I tend to hoard! They're just so cute and I love the colors. But I've decided I have to use them up, so here they are. The striped paper is from the Cakewalk collection and the stickers (flowers & label) the Sidewalks collection. This sweet die cut butterfly was in their Sidewalk flower sack. My Savvy sentiment has always been one of my favorites, I like the gentle arch. I picked up this scallop note card at Archiver's eons ago and have embossed it here with a Lifestyle Crafts: whimsy embossing folder.

This one is Laurie's card, so bright and summery!


Before I go I wanted to share this little fella with you! It's his birthday today...he's 10!!! This is what he loves to do, run in the yard! Just look at those ears flying back! I think that's our neighbors fence behind him, my hubby took this photo last month. He's such a sweet silly little pup, and he has my heart!!!



That just about covers it for today friends. 
I hope you're staying cool in your neck of the woods. 
Enjoy your day! ~Lisa
