Who Wants to See a Teddy Bear Card?

Who Wants to See a Teddy Bear Card?

The first time Ann saw this teddy bear stamp set, she fell in love with it. You see, long before I was born, Ann used to collect teddy bears.

Now she collects stamps instead.

We’ve had this stamp set for a month now. I think it’s time to reveal him.

I Read About Your Birthday

Where do you get your card making ideas from? I’m sure you don’t read about them in the paper!

It’s really funny how I can sit with Ann and look at a card. We look at each other and then I find a spot to perch on while she makes the card.

My Blue Valentine Card

If you’ve been reading my barks at all, you know that my favorite huMAN loves blue! We can make ANY card BLUE and he’d be fine with that.

So why can’t a Valentine be blue?

It can! You can make it any color if you make it yourself! And how much more meaningful is that!?!

How About a Valentine Card?

Have you started on your Valentine’s yet?

By now, you must know that this dog is always working on something. This weekend, it’s the football playoffs, but while we’re doing that, we’re cleaning our stamp room and working on upcoming video projects.

I love this Valentine that we did with…

Christmas in July

Is it too early to start Christmas cards? Not for some!

I’ll always remember Ann sharing about our friend Cynthia who made a few cards every month so that she’d have a lot of them by Thanksgiving.

But most of you humans aren’t like that.

We’ll be starting our Christmas Card Stamp a Stacks soon. And right after that,

Leftover Vintage Squared

Have you made anything fun with leftovers lately? I’m not talking aobut food. I’m talking about the leftover supplies you have from making a card or other paper crafting project.

Those of you who have been around me at all know I like to sneak a little chew in every now and then.

Not tobacco! I sometimes like to she a little piece of cardstock between my teeth & my cheek.

I was helping Ann clean up after the Yuba City Stamp Club was over here the other night. I found a piece of cardstock that was a pretty nice size and just too pretty to chew.

And this is what we made with it!

Hats Off to You, Dad!

Father’s Day is a day of celebration for many. For some, it is bittersweet because their dads aren’t around.

But we’re dedicating today’s Father’s Day card to someone different. You could call it a non-traditional Father’s Day card.

Even though it’s basically a masculine card, we’re dedicating it to …

Thank You, Amanda!

It’s nice to get a card or package in the mail. How do I know? Amanda sent Ann & me a nice little package with sweets, dog treats and two cards in it.

We should be posting the whole bit on Instagram or on my Facebook page soon. I’m almost positive that Ann took a phone picture before she ate all the candy.

Our package was extra special because…

Get Your Butterfly Basics Here

Don’t you love butterflies? I think everyone does.

At least I hope you do.

Ann didn’t finish this card at the swap last week. Instead, she brought it home and finished it her own way. The card was already stamped, but we double layered it and chose a different base layer.

Does it look okay to you?
