Shameless plug for Duffy Barkley

A friend of mine has written a book called "Duffy Barkley is not a Dog". She has a blog about the book that can be found at . Check it out! I just started reading it, but at one point found myself forgetting I was reading I was so into the story. That's usually a pretty good sign that the book is going to be good.

Dixie self-published the book and is using a lot of the money she makes to buy more books to donate. She is a crafter of words, not paper, but we should all support each other, right?:-) Have a great weekend.

Christmas card challenge

I'm putting this on the Christmas card challenge at My Pink Stamper. It's a 5"x7" card. The paper is from DCWV. All but the glitter paper is from the Homemade Christmas stac k. I inked around the edges of the card with 2 shades of distress ink, one brown and one red. They worked well together. The ribbon is something that was on a present (throw things away, seriously??) The pearl paint is Viva Decor. The ornament is from the Joys of the Season cartridge and is popped up with MS foam dots. The sentiment is inside.

Birthday Hedgehog

This card is for a friend's birthday. I'm entering it into the birthday challenge at My Pink Stamper. The hedgehog is from the Four Legged Friends lite cartridge. He is so cute! The paper is a combination of things, some DCWV and some random paper from my stash. I got the flowers at Tuesday Morning and the gem on clearance at Walmart.

Action Wobble card

I made this with the Gingerbread cartridge and an action wobble. Those things are so much fun to play with. I'm being very stingy until I can buy more. I cut the gingerbread people out at 3 1/2". The green snowflake is MS punch with an Irock gem in the center. The small snowflakes are from a Fiskars mini cartridge punch with a hint of Stickles in the center. The polka dot paper is K and Company. The rest of the paper is from my stash. (Been collecting a looong time). The ribbon is from Michael's. I'm going to attempt to add the video as well as the picture. Hope it works.
