Tuppy

Sadly, Tuppy passed away at the Mut Hut, here in Canmore.  He was a neat dog.  When you came in the store, he would take your hand in his mouth and lead you over to where he was allowed to be given treats.  Smart dog!  He will be missed.

I'm sure glad I have the Happy Tails Bundle set, so that I could make a Sympathy card for Tuppy.  Here is the card I made.


Coffee & Cards - Happy Tails Bundle

Here are the cards we made last night during Coffee & Cards! They are just so cute! The Happy Tails Bundle was used to make these four cards.

Aren't they perfect for the vet, the dog sitter, kennel, furbaby parents, dog walker or for when a family pet passes away? What a great set to have on hand.






Want to make these cards?
Why not order up the Puppy Card Class to Go?



You get the Happy Tails Stamp Set and Coordinating Punch, two stamp pad colours of your choice. I will send you the card kits to make the four cards. They are precut, ready to stamp and assemble. You'll be sent the link for the video on how to make these cards, on your time frame. Also, as an added bonus, you will receive a tutorial on how to make two more cards using this set! Who doesn't love more ideas! Lastly, you will receive a FREE item of your choosing from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue! YAY! All this will arrive at your doorstep so you can craft when you need some "me" time.

This offer is only available until Feb 19th, so order now!

Happiness Blooms - Memories & More kits!

WOW!  After lunch, I made all of these cards!
I can't believe how easy it was to whip together all of these beautiful cards using the Happiness Blooms Memories and More cards and the matching card bases and envelopes!

I needed more card bases and layers, so I only used Whisper White cardstock and black ink.

Want to know how many I made in all?

42!!



This is the perfect idea for a beginner card maker, a gift for a teacher or child, to set aside time for creating, or if you need a whole lot of cards in a hurry!

Happiness Blooms - Memories & More Card Pack - #148531
These cards can also be used in scrapbook layouts and fit in the Memories & More scrapbook pockets.  Scrapbooking is a breeze with these cards!

Happiness Blooms - Memories & More Cards and Envelopes - #148806
