What a fun request from a friend

a dear, sweet friend of mine asked if I could design a very simple Wedding invitation for....her dog and the dog she is to be bred with. The male's name is Bogart and the male's wants to have fun with this event. The "wedding" will have a Casablanca theme and I think it will be a blast. And, yes, I have been invited to attend!

I've designed shower invites, wedding announcements, save the date ones and birth announcements and now am proudly adding pet announcement cards to my resume! lol

Thanks dear friend for asking me to do this. It was fun fun fun!

Been playing with some new products from the ACOT shoppe

and one of the products is Helmar's Fabric Stiffener and Draping Liquid. The little ghostie is made of plain bandaging gauze. The ghosties hold their shape so they work great for my H'ween cards.

To see what else can be done with this product and several others to meld fabric and paper, watch for my October reveal at A Cherry on Top.

As always, thanks for looking!

Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply Challenge Crimpers

Today, we are asking you to break out a tool rather than a supply. As friendship brings us together, we figured a great idea would be to challenge you to use


in your art. This great tool can create some great effects and gives dimension and texture to your art. We can't wait to see how you use it in your art! No crimper on hand? Pleating paper by hand will be accepted as well.

For details on how to enter this challenge and perhaps become the next Guest Artist, please check out the challenge here

I used the crimper to create the flowers' leaves out of vellum. I want to thank Regina, the owner of Owl and Pussycat Stamp Store in Ft. Myers, Florida for showing me how these are done. Regina, you have been an inspiration to me and I oh so miss your Wed. demo days and your amazing classes!
