Riding in a Jeep HBD

This lil' guy looks like my late Shih Tzu...I love it yet it makes me sad (so I quit coloring and left his jacket Don Johnson in Miami Vice ;)).

I may have overestimated my level of healing, but my nephew will appreciate his likeness.

DT INkspirational Mini


It's time for a new challenge at INkspirational!

Sweet n' Sassy Kitty Love image, The Greetery Frosted Frames die, Birch Press Design hot foil plate sentiment, Jen Hadfield Ephemera

The new prompt is "mini".

I don't usually make cards this small, but I had this challenge in mind when I brought together the elements.

I arranged them on a scrap trimmed from a card, and it seemed to work!

Simon Says IG Challenge: Fun With Flowers

Simon Says (Wednesday): Anything Goes

I had so much left over of this floral pattern (thank God I'm not sick of it)!

Since there's an emphasis on florals (pink, orange, and green), this Inspired By Challenge seems a good fit:

I stenciled with the lightest green in the background with a beautiful stencil from I-Crafter in the lightest green.
