Hello My Friend

I had some arrows left over from this card and decided they would be perfect for accenting a tag. The space above the tag needed to be filled for balance. I went with twine that I "painted" so it would hold its shape. 

I hope you have a great day. I headed out for a day with Phoebe Comfort Dog to visit some hospitals.

Sending Prayers & Love

I finally decided to sign up for the Simon Says Stamp card kits. Sending Happy Mail is my first. So many cute products. I have high hopes that I can use up most of the supplies before the next kit arrives. The August kit was revealed today!

My first card focuses on hearts. I wasn't sure if I would like the puffy stickers but was pleasantly surprised.

The next card is perfect for popping in the mail. I used glossy accents on the small heart. Just enough shine!

Dr. Seuss Coin Purse


While cruisin' the dollar aisle at Target I found this cute Dr. Seuss bag. I don't know the name of the material but it feels kind of like vinyl. I thought it would be cute cut up for little coin purses. 

 I used pieces from the handle to create the tab for the metal ring.

My original intent was to give this to a small child but I had found when working with Phoebe Comfort Dog that I couldn't carry a purse so I put my ID and some cash in the coin purse and attached it to my lanyard. It worked like a charm and even started a few conversations with children who loved Dr. Seuss books. You can see me wearing it here when we were in Arkansas after the tornadoes that hit in April.

I even made a larger one for all of Phoebe's hospital ID badges that she wears. Phoebe has so much stuff in her blue bag that having the bright Dr. Seuss pouch in easy to locate.


I need to make several more as other handlers are requesting them.~Rhonda

Thankful for Friends

I had a lot of fun creating this card. I using my mini inker tool to create the background using distress inks.The next step was putting the circle graph stencil in Versamark ink and embossing with black powder. I had no idea if it would work but it really created a cool effect.

I used my perfect pearls for the 1st time with the collage background. Oh my, I LOVE them! ~Rhonda
