One of my all-time favorite layouts includes a small, raised, stamped panel on a white card base. Working on such a small space gives ample opportunity to create a very strong focal point framed by lots of glorious white space.
Combine that layout with bold colors from Kaleidacolor pads and the Mini Bouquet set from Stampers Anonymous (which is anything but mini), and you get some pretty and amazing cards.
I could make these layouts all day long with all sorts of different stamps and themes. It makes me very, very happy.
There were a few questions about the puppy, and of course, I'll share more pictures as they come from the breeder. The mom, Annie, is an English Cream. The dad, Grady, is part English Cream and part Golden. We honestly don't care about color or sex...we simply want the sweetest, most docile pup. Goldens are great dogs; the new one will be our third. We haven't picked names out yet, although we do have a list for both sexes. We want to meet the pup and pick him/her out before settling on a name.
And that's how things stand now.
Blessings as we head into the weekend. We're going to go check out Ohio State University this weekend with our elder son. It's his first choice for college. Lord, help us!
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
