Two things on Tuesday...

First things first...
as I forgot yesterday---
one of my faithful followers e-mailed me
and asked if Coco Puff had come home yet...
(in case you're wondering-that's the cutie on the right...)
Sadly, he has not.
And Moe (the one on the left, aka Cocoa's best bud)
is sooo lost without his friend.
So far
he's sticking close to home...and I hope that continues!
On the up side, our local animal control has been put on alert
and they've not called with any news-
so I am going with the
"no news is good news" assumption
and thinking he's off sewing wild oats
(well, as much as he can being neutered!)

Now-something crafty just

Saturday Theresa gave me my Stampin' Up order
and it contained this beautiful stamp set
the dies to cut these awesome shapes
AND that gorgeous seam binding ribbon!
(I should be a better blogger and have their names handy-I don't;
check back tomorrow to this same post and I will include them,
give credit to the person whose card I cased to make this,
The stamp set is SU's Apothocary Art;
the dies are Sizzix Framelets
and the blog that I cased the card from is
along with whatever blog "linky parties" I link it up with!)
Here's what I made:

I just LOVE these colors!
My copic marker was a bit darker than my cardstock
but I really think it makes it all "pop"
and compliments it well at the same time.
(I  need to go look and Theresa's Copics and choose some more colors to order-
I don't seem to do well with selecting from the website swatches...
and these aqua's were my godmother's favorite colors
little sad missing her...)
Sorry-I got sidetracked!
Back to the project...

This view below shows how cutting that shape on the fold
makes it pop out and "turn" as you open the card out...

Then I was thinking...
wow-this looks so nice and clean-
I really don't want to mess it up by writing in it...
but alas!
See that middle panel?

I  *think* I can write my message there
and yet when the card is set up and displayed
(assuming again-but hey, I would-just sayin'!)
the handwriting will be hidden! ; )

So-those are my two things for Tuesday.
I am off to make a guy card
since I've done some flylady things-
dinner's done, dishwasher running, coffee pot set up...
wooo-hooo- I have time to play before bed!

Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
