Quick, Easy Thank You Card for PP480

With ten puppies to care for these days, time is a limited resource for me…and probably for many of you.  That is just one reason why I designed this quick and easy thank you card for today’s challenge.  It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

Anne Marie is our hostess today, and she is challenging us to “Turn Up the Heat” to create a project which features heat embossing.  I heat embossed the word Thank You on my sentiment. I can’t wait to see what YOU emboss! And don’t forget to check out the puppy video at the end of today’s post!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Oh my gosh, friends! I am feeling overwhelmed. The “Party of Ten” litter turns three weeks old Monday, March 2nd, and I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.  They will be wormed for the first time on Monday, and then they will begin their diet of puppy gruel four times a day, along with nursing, until they gradually taper off the nursing.  The gruel will turn to mush, and finally solid kibble over the next five weeks.

I knew I needed to come up with a card which would be quick and easy, and not one which would take hours to create. I turned to one of the new papers  available in the second Sale-A-Bration release, which begins March 3rd, to help me in my task.  What you see featured are patterns from the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series collection of papers.  The Rose Gold and Silver foil designs are stunning. You can use the papers as is, or you can add color to the white areas.  I happened to use a Blender Pen to add Daffodil Delight (flower centers), Flirty Flamingo (petals), and Mint Macaron (leaves) inks to flowers which I snipped from one of the pages.

A Silver Foil panel, die cut using a rectangular Stitched So Sweetly die, makes the perfect back drop. All that is needed are a few champagne rhinestones for a touch of bling.

I stamped the So Sentimental sentiment twice. Once was in Celestial Copper Delicata ink, which I die cut out with a Stitched So Sweetly die.  If you do not have copper ink, you can substitute any coordinating color you want.   I stamped it a second time in VersaMark, and heat embossed it using Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Thank You was snipped out and adhered on top of the copper one.

Woo Hoo! We Are Two!

The babies turned two weeks old on Monday, and boy are they starting to explore their box.  Eyes are opening, and they are getting cuter by the minute. Five now weigh TWO pounds or more, but there are still three “littles” who are not out of the woods yet. However, they are gaining weight, but just not at the rate I would like.

The Gang

Two of the Boys – Quatro and Nueve

Another boy – Cinq

A little girl – Tenn

Two girls – Tenn and Sixx

Stay tuned for more puppy news!

The Puppies Are Here

It’s great to be checking in with all of you today, after taking a break to take care of puppies.  Yep! The puppies are here!  While we are not out of the woods yet,  I am making a quick post today to let you know about our latest bundles of joy – the Party of Ten!

Puppies

Yep! Party of Ten! While the X-rays only showed 6 for sure, maybe 7 or 8, Kendall blessed us with TEN puppies.  Ten is considered a large litter for a Boxer of Kendall’s size, so supplementation was in order.  We are hoping that Kendall does not decide to close the “milk bar” down before we get these babies started on puppy gruel! We have four girls and 6 boys. There are four fawns and six brindles.  Are you ready for some puppy cuteness?  Here you go!

puppies

While I don’t have pictures of everyone posted today, I will be certain to introduce you to each one in the upcoming days.  Because three of the puppies are low birth weight and “at risk”,  the litter does take up a huge amount of my time. I sleep beside the whelping box, and sometimes in it,  when I can find the time to sleep.  The babes are fed in shifts, and by the time the second shift finishes up, the first shift is ready to go again.  As they grow older and become more active, I have no idea what I am going to do!  It will be Puppy Pandemonium!

Puppies

I’ll be back later this week with more puppy pictures, exciting information about the second Sale-A-Bration release, and hopefully a card!
