Cherish Everyday

Hello friends, welcome and thanks for stopping by!  My time in The Studio seems to have dwindled lately - we could blame that o the arrival of  gorgeous pug baby and the arrival of some awesome new products - but mainly the pug baby lol - I will post a photo of him at the end of the post - than you will totally understand! 

I have a card to share with you using Kaisercraft Collectibles. It is a very quick and easy way to create a pretty card.  The card front has been cut/embossed using leftover pieces of patterned paper and embossed using an older Spellbinders Embossing Folder and the  Platinum Die Cutting Machine .  The card front has been popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

The image has been popped up onto the centre of the card front using using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Little Birdie Craft flowers have been glued to the left of the framed image  die cut leaves from my stash adhered to the top of the flower.  and some lace from my stash added to cover any paper joins that can be seen.

As promised here is a photo of Cooper who is now 10.5 weeks old and as adorable as he looks here. (he is officially no more pets #9 LOL! But we won't go there!?)
