10mcd #25 ~ You Make me Smile!

It's a beautiful day here in Ohio!! The windows are wide open with cool breezes blowing in, sunny blue skies...oh yeah!! There is a down side though. My sweet boy Max is a tad under the weather. He's never had a repository issue in all of his 10 years. But there's something going on with the my little guy, so he's on an antibiotic. That sweet little face and those big brown eyes tell this mama he doesn't feel good. To give myself a little adrenaline boost as a pick me up, I am playing along with the 10 Minute Craft Dash!



The moment I saw the color combo my PTI Simple Sunflowers came to mind. I stamped them on a white panel then ran it through my die cut machine with this new embossing folder ~ LOVE!!! Isn't the font on this Inkadinkado sentiment a delight. Some milk chocolatey twine and a pretty SU button anchor my sentiment panel with it's punched border. I was going to add a felt die cut butterfly. But when a pulled out my PTI Harvest Gold felt, I had these two hearts already cut. I think they fit the bill quite nicely!
 


That does it for me today. I hope you'll stop by tomorrow for a sneak peek at my DeNami Photo Tutorial I think you'll enjoy!! Until then friends tah tah!! ~Lisa

Oh poor Max! Hope he is happy and feeling better soon. I am sure you knew just where to take him. :)
Love the sunflowers on embossed papers. Such a pretty card.
We are as hot as is gets here in CA. Did some yard work in the am and then a swim.

Hope Max gets well very soon, Tormenta & Rayo (my 2 Jack Russells) send him a #woofwoof. Love your card and the texture the embossing gives it.

I'm in love with these colours Lisa! So beautiful and soft! I must be an air head, if you knew how many times I have told myself to use the stamp and emboss technique....and still, in all these years I have not done it! I wonder if I am going to remember today! It just looks absolutely amazing and that embossing folder is stunning!

I hope poor Max is feeling better soon! I wish we had cool weather! It has been 90 here the last few days! Where is autumn?????
