Little Red Wagon Challenge #400 Three's Company

Hi Everyone!
It is another Wednesday, which means it is time for another challenge!  Our theme for this week's challenge is Three's Company, which is simply having 3 like images or items on your projects.  Head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the girlfriends have created, easy as One-Two-Three!  Please join us, this challenge will end next Tuesday.
My card was originally going to have 3 dogs on it, but then I needed a card for my Mom's birthday.  She loves to sew and while going through de-stashing and reorganizing my crafty cave I found this set that needed some ink.  Here's my creation!

Tonic Mini Scalloped die
MFT Pierced Circle Stax
MFT Blueprints #1
CC Designs Scalloped die (inside)
TPC Sewing stamp set
Prismacolor pencils

Gerda Steiner Monthly Challenge - Hello Friend Turtle

Hi Everyone!
Someone please tell me where the month of June went!  We were so busy and it's like, where did it go?? We had birthdays (5), an anniversary, Father's Day, 2 out of town weekends and POOF! It's over!
That would be why I'm down to the wire getting in my card for this month's challenge.  This little turtle is so adorable and look at that cute butterfly on his nose! Love it! Well, I was getting lost in Pinterest and came across this card design that I though would be perfect for this card.  You can find the directions and a video at www.stampinbj.com dated May 20, 2017.  Obviously, I did not use Stampin Up! products but I adapted using my own supplies.


Here is my card recipe~
Gerda Steiner Hello Friend Turtle digi stamp
Inkadinkadoo stamp set - sentiment
Spellbinders Blossom die
Spellbinders Nesting Circles
MFT Pierced Circle Stax dies
Prismacolor pencils
Fiskars 3way corner punch

Little Red Wagon #398 Dogs or Cats?

Hi Everyone!
We have a new challenge this week at Little Red Wagon - Dogs or Cats? Unfortunately we lost our little Jack Russell, Jaxson this past February.  I laugh and say he was my 3rd child!   My husband got him for me for Valentine's day 14 years ago. He said I needed something to nurture since the kiddos were leaving home!  I still miss him greatly.  We've decided not to get another puppy for now, I don't think we'd find another pup like Jax.  We have a gray tabby - Fitz, and we are now officially a cat family! He amuses us - when he wants to!
So for this week's challenge Jan wants us to use a dog or a cat, (or both) on your creation! Join us in the challenge, you can link up your entry at Little Red Wagon. I can't wait to see if there are more dogs or more cats! You have until next Tuesday to participate!
Here's my card ~
