Basket Case

Wow - this has been one of "those" weeks. Cabana Boy is back and we're trying to get back into the routine. The weather has broken, finally, and we are having *GOR-JUS* weather. All the critters want to be outside, including one pain in the rumpus Tater who's been escorted home 3 times this week. Anyone have any tips on keeping a strong-willed man kitty in the yard? Bueller?

If you hopped over here from Melanie's blog - welcome! If you didn't - welcome!! LOL It's a joy for me to have you visit. Here's my card using Melanie's new set, Basket Buddies. I wanted to spend a little time anticipating fall and winter, so I made a winter card!

How cute are these pups?? I love all the ways you can put them together with other sets. This one uses Rupa's Warm and Wonderful set for the hat on the grey pup. It reminds me of how people love dressing up their pets, and how some pets let you, but clearly show their reluctance. LOL

I used my secret (top secret) faux stitching technique. I have GOT to get a video done for that so you can do it too! The 'life is good' sentiment is from Theresa Momber's Life is Good set from Gina K.

If you want to know 2 tips for Copic coloring and cut-out images, hop on over to Melanie's blog where she'll be spilling the beans. Come back in a few days for a little more inspiration. I'm going to be filming this weekend, so there will be some new stuff to fill your dreams.

  1. How cute are these, Ky! You've created such great inspiration for this set. WTG.

  2. These puppies are as cute as the kitties on Melanie's blog! Love how you've used them to create winter/holiday cards. Adorable! Please do a tutorial on your faux sewing -- I can't/don't want to sew with a machine but love the look on cards. I need your secret since your stitching looks like you did it with a machine!

  3. Hi Kyra! The puppies are SO adorable!! Love your kitties card on Melanie's blog too. Awesome cards. Can't wait to see more.

  4. That little puppy looks so cold all hunkered down and huddled under that hat LOL! So creative!

  5. Soo CUTE! Love all the texture & the little hat!


I adore comments. Make my day brighter and leave me some love!

Welcome to the Bunny Nest! I host rescued animals in a small in-home setting. Currently, I host 3 bunnies and 2 kitties. These animals will be socialized and housed for the entirety of their lives in my home. They inspire my crafts, and I use any proceeds to pay for their needs. Thanks for visiting!
