Happy Friday

Muffin was wondering why the cards always get posted first and her photos come at the end...so today, she gets her picture up first ; ) !
Okay, now that you've seen Muffin in her tutu, we can move on to a couple stamping projects. Both feature Not Quite Navy cardstock & Designer series paper (from the hostess pack). It's a color I tend to reach for more often in the fall. I've been working on some fun swap cards with the Crazy for Cupcakes set, using pinks, browns, pumpkin...but thought it would be fun to try and make a "man" cupcake birthday card...so this is it.
And next, a little Pillow Box, made with the Big shot. I really like that die...it's perfect for a quick, easy little treat. This time Not Quite Navy is combined with Bravo Burgundy, another favorite fall color. Also used my new Wide Scallop Punch & Define Your Life set.
In case you haven't seen
the Big Shot yet...here it is ~


That's it for now... my daughter, Katie, & her husband are coming for to visit for the weekend, so this will be it from me for a couple days : ) ! Have a super weekend & I'll have some fun NEW things to show you next week!!

The cupcake is so sweet with the sprinkles, and the pillow box is very cool with the overlapping oval sentiment...but I must say, Muffin is just adorable!!! Where did you get that tutu??
hugs, Jami

Hey, does that dress make Muffin's butt look big?? That is the cutest! Jane was over and were looking at and cracking up! She dresses her dog, too, in sweaters.

Although Muffin gets (and deserves) center stage, your projects are amazing. I love the colors and use of the sprinkles on the cupcake. The use of Define Your Life and the "layered" Wide Oval on the pillow box are unique and artful. Great job!
