Squeal-y Thanks

Really, I am not trying to push Paper Smooches stamps.....I just really, really, REALLY like them - a LOT.  Soooo, I use them.....a LOT.......
I think he's supposed to be a hamster?  Obviously a rodent of some sort - but a cute one and he fit perfectly into the "instant photo" die cut from Taylored Expressions.  I know it's a small image/focal point to carry the card but I think it works.  The embossing folder gets the "theme" of the card across subtly but clearly.  The Squealer is just so stinkin' cute!  And isn't that the best type of gifty to give OR receive??  Something that absolutely makes you squeeeeal???

In this terrible photo I'm hoping you can tell I used Liquid Glass to give a more "instant photo" finish.

Here's hoping you receive a SQUEAL-ABLE gifty soon!!

Monster Wishes

Well here's where it gets a little tricky about being gone so long from blogging......I don't quite remember exactly what cards I've posted AND since I've been so lacking in the posting department I actually have cards that I made LAST year that have yet to be posted.........sooooo please forgive any repeated postings I may do in the near-ish future. 
Who doesn't love the Paper Smooches monster?  Seriously, I can't get enough of him.  I would use him in every other card but I think someone might get a bit sick & tired of him.  Heidi - remember when we used to do those card swaps at Carol's shop and EVERY time we'd get a card with that huge bunny holding something??  I just don't want anyone to feel like that towards this cute guy so I limit his exposure.
But doesn't this handsome fellow really make an impact???

Being sick is NEVER fun (well, I guess Amy would disagree - as long as Sheldon was ready to run some Vick's Vapor rub on her chest...) and I figured if I were sick, getting this purple-dotted guy (in a spiffy nurse's cap) dragging along some TLC might make me feel better for a nano-second or two.  At least I'd appreciate the thought, right? 

Besides, I think we could all use with a little more TLC & love in our lives...............
