You Are On My Mind

Sometimes a card can be the easiest way to say, “You are on my mind”.  It’s time to play at Festive Friday – Home of the Inspo List.

You Are On My Mind

For this week’s challenge, we are inspired by World Alzheimer’s Day. Remember, at Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate or make a card for the occasion featured. Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I used purple, red, flower, die cut, thinking of you sentiment, ribbon and stitching to create my card. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

An embossed Basic White panel makes the perfect backdrop for a colorful collection of floral images and distressed gold die cuts, created with the Nature’s Prints bundle. The Natural Prints dies include a lovely wreath-like circle of leaves, which makes a wonderful accent.  While I went with a rich, dark Blackberry Bliss paper, this layout would lend itself to a wide variety of colors and patterns.  Plus, the sentiment can easily be switched out. In fact, the Nature’s Prints stamp set includes four sentiments with a fun script that could be used for several different occasions.

Nueve’s Notes

Hey, everyone! It’s me! Nueve!  I’ve been having lots of fun playing with my Uncle Q.  He’s back home after  staying with my friend, Rose, while he went to Oh, BEE-dience class.  We played “It’s my tennis ball and my chew and you can’t have them!”

You Are On My MInd

Then we played “It’s my squeaky ball and you can’t have it!”

You Are On My Mind

All that playing made us hungry, so we used our “puppy dog eyes” to ask Mom for food.  She gave us banana and popcorn. We both got really drooly, ’cause we’ve got big hangy-down jowls.

You are on my mind

After our snack, Mom said we needed quiet time.  So, we laid down beside her chair and watched The Great British Baking Show with her.   It makes her happy when we do that.

You are on my mind

Making Mom happy is just part of my job. I am a working dog. I am Good Boy Nueve!
