No Digi Images or Stamps

Hello all! Happy almost Spring!! And Just in case I don't get to tell you HAPPY EASTER!

For my project this week I made another 3d box card. I love them so much and they are so fun to make.

This one I picked the colors first and it just sort of went from there.. The colors to me seemed more wedding like and I love the way this one turned out.. All were cut using my SIL and using files i got from the SIL Store.. I added some pearls and a gem to make it pop.

Dont forget to stop over at to join in the fun!!!

Animals Challenge At Simply Create Too

Hello All! Its starting to get really nice outside which means spring is on its way (I HOPE)
With Spring comes baby chicks (super cuteness!!) Flowers (LOVE THEM!) and I get to plant my vegetable garden (YUM!)

For this weeks challenge over at Simply Create Too  we have an animals challenge! I could have done a TON of things with this and I know you can too!
For my project I decided to do a really popular 3D Pop UP Box Card for Easter.

I got the box instructions over at Split Coast Stampers...
All of the elements were from different files I got from KADoodlebug Designs
My bunny actually wobbles and I got the action wobbles from a good friend's store

This card was a little intimidating at first but once I got into it .. It was super fun and easy! 

Hope to see you join our challenge this week!!!

Canine Cancer Awareness Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Canine Cancer Awareness Blog Hop!! We have a lot of talented ladies with some great projects to share with you today with the theme of Dogs...

Did you know that 1 in 4 dogs will be diagnosed with cancer?! I didn't realize that canine cancer was so common until my sweet girl was diagnosed with an aggressive form of bone cancer called Osteosarcoma.
This is the very same cancer that takes many young children's lives also. Humans and dogs suffer from the same cancers and I believe when there is a cure for human cancer there will be a cure for Canine cancer also. So we must all stick together and not only hope for a cure but bring awareness to these horrible cancers!

So there will be blog candy for this hop! You will have to do a few things to be entered in it but they are super easy :) But the CANDY IS......A $10 gift certificate from Me...and Miriam was super nice to match with another $10 gift certificate so 1 winner will get a total of $20 to spend in Miriam's shop! HOW COOL IS THAT?!

1. Be a follower of all of the blogs in this hop and also leave some love!
2. Head over to  and follower her page
3.Go to Miriam's Facebook Page and let her know you are stopping in from the hop
4. Stop over at Pet Care RX and like their page because each like this month will get the National Canine Cancer Foundation 50cents!!!! Every Penny Counts when it comes to finiding a cure!!
Just stop back at : Amanda's Blog and tell her you have completed each one

Remember Together We are the CURE!!!!

I made a shadow box using some paw print paper from my stash... The collar Hailey wore when she was just a pup and a milkbone biscuit because she Loves cookies! The sentiment I cut on my cameo and I just LOVE this saying. I also used an adorable charm that I got from Miriam's Crafting Store I absolutely Love these charms!

Just a little background on Hailey: We got her when she was around 6 months old from a friend who had brought her from Alabama and so we don't really know her background.. For the past 7 years she was healthy and full of energy.. One day she was playing because she likes to chase chipmunks around the woods... That night we noticed a small lump on her front leg. We thought she sprained it from digging around in the woods... After a week of me alternating heat and ice it wasn't getting any better... We took her to the vet and we got the news that it was cancer ...They told us the median survival time without amputation was less than 3 months....Because she was completely healthy other than the fact that she has cancer I made the tough decision to have her leg amputated and do chemotherapy. The doctor we have has been the BEST I have ever met.. He let me call him at all hours of the night after the surgery when I was worried and he calmed me down. They said that even with chemo and amputation she may only live 6 months... At her 3 month check up her chest scans were clear and we are now on month 5 and still no signs.. I have learned a lot by this experience..The biggest thing I have learned is that you can't control  the things you hope you can and you need to live in the moment and enjoy what you have. I have also learned that Now I believe my new mission in life is to raise awareness and hope for a cure... I am also determined to become and advocate of giving hope to the families of dogs diagnosed with cancer because it Really does not HAVE to be a death sentence.. It breaks my heart that people feel that there is no hope after diagnosis... Sorry to ramble but its time now see what everyone else has in store for you.

Thank You for stopping by and please hop on over to your next stop : Jearise I know she has something fabulous to show!
