Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

Walter, Rescue dogsThis is Walter, our adopted-adopted dog.  He’s the one Rachel adopted, but he kept picking fights with the bigger dogs.  So he’s with us now.  It’s hard to get a good picture, because he’s rarely still unless he’s sleeping.

If you know me at all, you know that I’m just not a morning person.  So, thanks to technology, I can grab a cup of coffee and my tablet or iPhone, slip back into bed, and check all my messages and e-mails before I have to face the day.

This morning I was checking mail and Walter kept barking.  Not incessantly, just a, “hey!  I’m out here!” bark.  He had been fed, watered, and, um, de-watered, so I had no idea what he might need.  And then it hit me.  Hoss – our 170 pound Rottweiler, was stretched out in the hall and Walter couldn’t get past him to be with me.  Walter hates being alone; he’s a real social bug.  So – while I was out here keeping him company, I figured I’d blog early, since I missed yesterday.

Sketched Birthday, New ColorsThis uses a stamp set from the 2013 annual catalog – “Sketched Birthday.”  I stamped and embossed the image on vellum card stock, then colored the back with markers.  If you attach the vellum to Whisper White card stock, the image really pops!

I used several new colors for this card – Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe, new In Colors for 2013-2015, and Smoky Slate, a new neutral.  I love our new color palette.  When you look at the colors together, they look so fresh.

I don’t usually start celebrating my birthday until August (my birthday is in early September), but I’m getting a huge surprise today.  I just checked the delivery information for my order from the new catalog, and it’s arriving two days early!  I should have a big box of new toys to play with business supplies this afternoon!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy!  Have a wonderful day.
