another FUN blog hop!












I am playing along with fellow "young crafters" today...we are sharing a new project using one of our favorite things.  This is where you will find all of the deets.

You should be arriving here from Ruby's blog

I am sure that I am not as young as many of these talented girls along the hopping path since I just turned 40, but I feel young!  I like creating fresh and fun cards, so maybe that's what keeps me feeling youthful.  I love coloring and cutting like I did when I was a kid.  I play with stamps and paper everyday, it doesn't get much better than that, for me :)

One of my favorite "things" is my dog.  Please meet Moxy...
























Please meet my card:



















The stamps used on this card are releasing TODAY.  They are from the "Santa Paws" and "Surf and Turf" stamp sets.  The dachshund is stamped onto patterned paper and cut out.  Black Zva Creative crystals added just the right touch to the black scalloped border.

You know the drill...this is where I tell you to hop next:

Please hop on over to: Jen Rzasa

Randomly selected hoppers will be chosen to win a prize.  Paper Smooches is one of the sponsors of this hop.  You can win a stamp set of your choice from us among other companies.  (More details at the main blog, linked above and below)

This super fun blog hop begins today at noon, central time.  The hop runs through Monday, July 4th at 11:59PM CST.  Winners will be announced on Wednesday, July 6th at noon CST.  Check in at the main web site: Young Crafter's Unite

Thank you so much for stopping by :)
Kim

PS - I had planned to start our challenge today (the first Friday of the month) but I don't want to interrupt the blog hop since it's a whole lot of more info..  I will start the challenge on Monday...please check back for the details.  This is going to be FUN!!

Your designs are entirely too much fun - and the sentiments are all amazing!I've been on such a tight budget, but I think my "mad money" will be going for some stamps next month ;)!

  27. I have a mini doxies too, her name is Penny (because she is the color of a penny I suppose) we got her a couple years ago from a family that was needing to get rid of her. I don't know how anyone could part with such a sweet little baby. Speaking of doxies, I'm so glad to see someone finally designed a cute dachshund stamp! Love the card, and I have been looking forward to your July release!

Love the Doxie - now could I put in a request for a Corgi - I know one named Dusty who would make a great model!! Love the new stamps - trying to decide which ones to get first!!
