Friend to Friend... and Cooper!

Morning and happy Monday! Well, I must say the weekend flew by so fast and with such nice weather it's hard to be on the computer... LOL!

I made this card for a friend of mine (Hi Diane!) over my Stampin' weekend. Petra came with all this BEAUTIFUL DP from Anchor Paper and she asked if I would like a piece... I HAD SUCH A BIG SMILE AND SAID "YES"!! It matches Kiwi Kiss so well and being we were sharing I asked Sherri if I could use her CB embossing folder. I don't have this one yet, but it's on my list!! This gave my the chance to CHASE a card from Nancy at iStamp who used Beate's Sketch Challenge. I decide to create a flower using my 5 petal Flower, Boho Blossoms and Scallop circle punches. Add the Filigree designer brad for the center. Love the Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss combo... :)

I just had to share a couple photo's of Cooper who was groomed this past week. He's a new MAN now and enjoys the girls at the Four Legged Lodge. I just LOVE his soft coat after a bath... doesn't last long! Cooper is 4 1/2 years old and an outside dog mostly, but does venture into the foyer to enjoy the evenings with us or sleeping through the night when it's to cold or to hot. In the first photo he is watching the bird feeders from the "Observation" Deck...
The second photo I think he is getting sick of me taking photo's of him... I'm getting that LOOK! Thanks for poppin' in for a visit and the weather will be GORGEOUS here today... ENJOY!!

Smiles... Michelle :)

Awesome card, Michelle! I thought you had stamped that background... what cool paper! I just love Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze together.

Cooper looks handsome and rather regal. Nice pictures! What a happy man he must be, living the good life with you and Mark.

I'm so glad you're having nice weather. Savor and smile!

Cooper is adorable - my co-workers baby is due this week and that is the chosen name. Cooper. How neat!

Absolutely love the card. You always pick the most amazing color schemes!

That IS terrific patterned paper for the background. I LOVE kiwi kiss so I would like any paper that coordinates with it. I also realy love it with baja. What a terrific card you made.

What a cutie Cooper is. He looks very sweet. I also get that, "mommmy, enough already with the camera" look from my cats.

Michelle -

Your stamping style is so clean, I love it! Your work is exquisite. Thank you for sharing that beautiful card. Love the kiwi kiss and blue together, its one of my favorite color combinations.

Cooper is totally handsome. My cats don't quite agree as they sniff the pc screen and turn their heads, but my lil beagle girl - she thinks she might just be in love.

Happy Monday!

Oh I LOVE Cooper! I lost my retriever last year... 14 years old. Cooper looks like such a nice dog.

I really like the texture from the CB folder and the colors go so well together!

Michelle....your dog is gorgeous!!! and so well behaved that he'll sit still for a photo, some kids do not even do that! LOL
Your card is gorgeous too and love how the paper matches Kiwi Kiss. I'll be sorry to see that go..

Cooper is so cute! What a well behaved boy getting his picture taken! I'm glad you posted him.

The card is just darling. I really like the DP. I see you used the Cuttlebug embossing folder we've talked about. The flower is fab, too!
