My Last Post of 2011…

Another year…whoosh! Thanks to all who have stopped by!LittleSquirrelCorn

I managed to catch this cute little guy chowing down corn before he skittered away! They’re so fun to watch.

I have to share a couple of Christmas pics too, mostly to annoy my oldest granddaughter! She’s such a rebel, out of the entire family who cheers on OSU…she follows Michigan! So, for Christmas I made her puppy, Keeper… a Boxer, several sweatshirts. After all, Boxers don’t have much hair and he gets cold when he has to go outside! And yes, he’s still growing…he’s only 9 months old!

Before the festivities started, I kept Carmen busy while her mom and uncle dressed Keeper in his ‘casual’ sweatshirt.

Of course Carm had to run put on her ‘M’ sweatshirt! I also made Keeper a more stylish one for when he wants to dress up.

Can’t wait to see him in this one! LOL

I think he’s happy with it! LOL… smart dog!

Another surprise was a new puppy for Benjamin…just too cute! A Beagle-Blue Heeler mix. Awwww

And……………… a card to share too! Another look at what’s being released tomorrow, Jan 1 from ODBD!

GrungeCross Z clsd

This is Never Give Up combined with Grunge Cross Background, and the Grunge Cross with Grunge Cross Die! I love the grunge look…the more distressing, the better!

All the DP is Prima Moulin Rouge, dry embossed, sponged, distressed and over-stamped! The Grunge Cross Background is on the green layer, stamped in Distress Pumice Stone.
The Churchill quote is also in Pumice Stone on the cross layer.

This is a Z-fold card. The card measures 5x5. The top was scored at 2.5 and folded back toward the fold…then the grunge front was attached just to that part.

Kind of fun to break out of the normal side or top fold card! *Note to self*… do it more often!
I stamped the Churchill quote again in Pumice Stone on the inside strip then stamped the verse in black.

Don’t forget to join us tomorrow for the release blog hop! Lots of awesome creations!

Have a safe New Year’s Eve!!

Thanks for stopping…
one more time!
