Welcome Nitro and the Sunday Stamper Cards

By | March 21, 2016

So how was your weekend, ours sure was busy, we forgot just how much energy a new puppy has. On Friday we picked up our new puppy Nitro and he is a ball of energy. Just in case you realize, he is a German Shepard, funny how they look so different as puppies compared to when full grown.  His parents look like Rin Tin Tin, which is what we expect him to look like. Here is a picture of him Sunday relaxing by one of my shoes, for some reason he really likes my shoe and carries it around to lay his head on.

Today’s blog features the cards that my Sunday Stampers made yesterday, Birthday was the theme. We had fun using some of the new items in the Occasions catalog as well as the Wildflower Fields Designer Series paper and Flowering Fields stamp set from the Sale-a-Brations catalog.
