Color Challenge with Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #24

It's time for a new challenge over at 

We have an amazing sponsor this week: 
 Prize: $10 Gift Certificate 

And I had the pleasure of using this wonderful 
sentiment by STAMPlorations.
The Crafting Cave, Stamplorations, Red,White, Blue, Surprise
I also discovered a new technique while making this card.
I have a transparency from Teresa Collins Freestyle Collection.

 I had a 5x5 piece cut and had every intention of using on my card.
It wasn't working for me, so I grabbed my distress inks in Barn Red and Faded Jeans
swiped them directly across the transparency, flipped it over onto my card stock and pressed with my hand. I was so surprised to see the stars. They are raised just enough to 
leave a pretty nice impression. I said, well, that's it! I did heat emboss the bigger stars and dabbed some Picket Fence distress paint around the edges. Fun, give it a try! Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Do You Know Pet Parents?

Hi and welcome, everyone. Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog sharing a few ways to present Pet gifts. I think often times we forget that some people consider their pets to be their children, especially, couples who can't have children. And how sad is it that we don't acknowledge their fur babies. I was one of those people, and I say let's give "Pet Parents" and their babies some love, too! So here are a few ideas next time you want to give a Pet gift.
With just a few SVG Attic Files you will be passing out these cute Pet gifts yourself.
I created the Fire Hydrant Treat Box using the JGW Little Fire Chief Kit, the gift card holder using the SVGA Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes, and the card using the paw print from SVGA Jack's Tracks. One of the best things about all the Kits listed, they can be used for multiple projects. The Little Fire Chief Kit makes for an awesome birthday party or load that fire hydrant up with homemade cookies for your local fir…

I highly recommend the Crazy Stitched Dies for shaker cards. The
