SU Stars Flower Fest

Welcome to the SU Stars May Blog Hop. You may have arrived from Jane Hignite's amazing blog, If you'd like to start at the beginning and follow the whole hop, you can begin at Our them is "Fabulous Florals," so be prepared to see some beautiful flowers on your trip around the internet.

I wanted to feature the new SU set, "Flower Fest" for my post. I also knew I wanted to make bright happy cards with it. (Although the card on the right doesn't use that stamp set, I made all three at the same time and they became a set so I've placed it's picture here, anyways.)

Because I love sketch challenges, my first card is based on the Pals Paper Arts sketch for this week.

This card can actually be used vertically or horizontally. Either way, I love how happy it looks!

Now, you know my blog is called "Life with a Wiener Dog." Just for proof, here is the wiener dog, Frank, offering his support by laying on the chair where I take the pictures of my cards.

For my second card, I used a sketch from Create with Connie and Mary. I didn't add the white punched piece because I'll put that piece in when I decide what occasion I will use the card for- "thank you," thinking of you," or "happy birthday."

In case you've never tried before, it's difficult to take still pictures of cards while your wiener dog walks around on your "blank canvas." I almost had the perfect shot when Frank was on the move. I told him, "Frank, stay." without really looking at where he was. Being the good dog that he is, Frank stayed. Just like this- the position he was in when I told him to stop moving. One half up and one half down.

I love that wiener dog!

Then, grab your friend- human or furry- and flower stamps and start creating.
