Gatlin's Journey :: You're dog-gone awesome!!

Good Morning!!

So while scrolling through Facebook a while back I came across a little boy named Gatlin. In November, on his way to school, he was involved in a tragic accident. The accident claimed the life of this young father.
You can read all about his family's story HERE.
The family also has a GoFundMe page set up which you can find HERE.

While reading through one of the updates his mom had posted, I read the he had been given a puppy from Build-A-Bear to help him through his lengthy recovery. They named the puppy JL. 

I've been following his story for the past couple of months and decided I wanted to send this brave little boy a card with a puppy to match his JL. I'm sending a ton of cyber prayers his way that he continues to recover and can get back home to his family!
I created the card base and layers in Silhouette Studio. The adorable little puppy is from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Super Dog cut file. I did add a little black patch to one of his eyes. :)
The sentiment and little paw prints come from the Jaded Blossom Dog-Gone Awesome stamp set.
Gatlin should be receiving his card any day now and I hope it cheers him up just a little! I even believe he is doing well enough to be released home this weekend! I'll continue to pray for this sweet family!

Happy New Year!!

Hello 2017!!

I just wanted to jump on here and share a quick little New Year's project before the day is over!

I tried to get something made up prior to today, but as you all know, it gets super busy this time of year! So I decided to take advantage of the afternoon while my little one was napping.

I used My Creative Time stamps and dies to create this super cute shaker card!
I used the My Creative Time MORE Stitched Circle Dies to create the shaker part. I built up the frame by adhering around 8 layers together. I used the My Creative Time Number Fun Dies & Add Ons to make the 2017. After adhering half of the layers together, I used some clear string to hang the letters in the middle of my shaker part. 

So, not only do all my pretty sequins and beads shake...but so does the 2017!
