Halloween Gnomies Just Wanna Have Fun | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Ah, to be a kid again! I remember looking forward with great anticipation to getting to play dress-up for much of the day, getting to “be” whomever I chose. For me, I remember a mix of things, but the pictures that stand out in my memory include a brown cat (not sure what rummage sale mom found that suit at – I was probably old enough to know I liked kitties and animals in general, but probably not old enough to speak their names!), ghosts, princess (what girl wasn’t?), an angel, Laura from Little House on the Prairie (one of my favorites!), and my all-time favorite: Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. (I told you that was my favorite movie as a kid! ;))

As an adult, we still need to have fun from time to time, though few of us allow that to happen much of at all. (Other’s are in the opposite camp, but that’s a story for someone else’s home on the web. 🙂 I decided to have a little fun this weekend with the sketch challenge posted by my friend Mary of Up North Stampin’. And fun I had! And a lot of inky fingers – better yet!

Just Because – Tickle a Teapotter August 2022 – Just Because! | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Hi, all! I am working on scheduling out a few posts to play catch-up… a few of these have been in my SCS gallery already, but others will be new to both. 🙂 This one was already posted at SCS as it hit the mail about a month ago. And yes, I did get final/fresh pictures of the two fall/pumpkin cards from last week that I’ll be posting soon, too!

Today I’m sharing a card I made for August’s Tickle a Teapotter!

Hummingbird Hugs with Papertrey Ink | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

I don’t know about you, but 68 or so with some sun and a slight breeze is about perfect outdoor weather. Unless of course I’m just sitting still outdoors; then 76 will do. 🙂

Today was neither. As I sit here, at 7:40 pm at night, it is still 93.

Yes. You read that right.

Not exactly outdoor weather, which is why I spent much of my afternoon indoors, working on this pair of cards!

Silly Rabbit Easter Card | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Creative ruts. They kind of stink!

I sat down last Wednesday or Thursday with some spare time on my lunch break and my stamp catalog and potential Easter-related dies in my lap, pen and paper in hand, to come up with a starting point for the Easter card I wanted to make.

I had an idea in my head, but it was a foggy one, and I didn’t know if and how I could make it work with what supplies I had on hand. See, Easter is such a beautiful season – a reminder of the proof that the Gift we were given with the birth of our Savior was a true gift indeed when as a sinless man He died for us… and rose again, just as He said. Just like He will again for us as He promised and we are reminded of throughout Scripture.

But I’m not going to lie… I adore those cute Easter bunnies we see everywhere these days, too!
