Bow wow birthday

Hope the heat isn't too terrible where you are? I'm miserable because we have been smack in the middle of this heat wave and it doesn't look like cooler temps anytime soon. I'M MELTING!!!
Today features an adorable LotV stamp from their last release. Oh my how cute is this doggie. Even though it features a cupcake with puppy treats, I think it will work for any birthday. The candle and treats have stickles but they might not be showing up. Have a COOL day!
Stamps - Lili of the Valley girl with puppy - All that Scraps sentiment
Paper - Kaisercraft pp

Cool drinks anyone?

I hope this counts for a couple of challenges. Just Magnolia is cooking & All That Scraps is summer. Well Tilda is making a big batch of drinks and some cooking might be required right? lol Nothing makes me think of summer more than a nice cold drink and trust me we need them - it was 108 here today! Ack!!!!
I paired my mini chef Tilda with recipe cards and the little orange wrap is holding several of them and just slips off. Love these PTI recipe cards - just great gift presentation. These cards are going to my daughter.

TOMIC - Nautical

When I saw this week's nautical challenge at Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge I had to play because it is one of my favorite collections! Tilda has a little candy box with chocolate gold coins inside that is going to a friend. I don't have a lot of Cricut cartridges, but am in love with Wrap It Up! I can make a pirate tag, card, box, favor with this one cartridge. There are wedding, Halloween, baby, and other party themes.

Got flowers?

OK I might have used just a few too many flowers. Once I started, it was tough to stop. ;)
Using one of my new LotV stamps. This little girl/puppy was a must for me! Such a sweet image and although I seriously could have bought the entire collection; I must be a good girl. I did buy one other from this latest release and hopefully will find time in the next few days to make a card.
Happy Wednesday!

Ships Ahoy

I had finished this card a few weeks ago and forgot to upload it. Using a Cricut cartridge called Wrap It Up, I cut out my ship and decided to only use part of it. Tilda is looking pretty cute.

Strawberry Cake

My camera has been giving me fits for over a week, so I just used the iPhone. Too many episodes of Cake Boss were seen-so Tilda needed a colorful fondant cake.
Hope you had a great week!
