MM155, TSSC361 and KJ220


Happy Tuesday, peeps!  A real quick post today, it’s errand-running day!  I’ve got a Christmas card for you, for the Merry Monday cat or dog challenge, as well as the Kraft Journal’s Anything Goes – Girlfriends challenge!

I also used the Mary Jo’s Technostamper sketch for this week:

I like cats and dogs, but surprisingly, I don’t have many stamps of either…especially with a Christmas theme!  I did remember this set, Winter is Calling, had a little puppy in it, so I pulled it out and stamped it simply in Real Red, then added some digital DSP, burlap and sequins and mounted it on a Crumb Cake card base:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Winter is Calling Stampin Up Christmas

The “girlfriends” challenge is sort of tongue-in-cheek;  the two girls are obviously friends, so that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!!!  Here’s a closeup of my little pup, and you can see the glittery snow, too:


My sentiment is from Great Greetings, stamped on the banner from the Circle Card thinlet.

I have to confess that I haven’t been doing a lot of stamping lately (which I need to remedy) but I have been knitting up a storm!  I made a poncho for my niece for next fall; she just turned a year last month, so I hope she gets a lot of use from it!  I loved knitting with this wool, it was soft and easy to work with, and now I want to make a sweater of my own with it….if I dare!!!   I have to confess that Dana crocheted the flowers as well as the string tie, as I don’t know how to crochet!! So here it is:


Enjoy your day!


(Cassidy got a “new” doll from a yard sale lady….check out the fingers, LOL!)

Love your vintage Christmas card LeAnne, but that beautiful poncho has totally wowed me! I would love to make something to wear for myself but I don't dare, I'm just not that good of a crocheter. You on the other hand are amazing!

What a sweet Christmas image and I love the red polka dots on kraft!! WOW to the adorable poncho, wish I could do that LOL!! Looks like someone bit those fingers off of that doll haha, but Cassidy could probably care less!!

I love that sweet image and it looks absolutely fabulous in the red without being colored. Love the burlap too--perfect touch. Such a great Christmas card! Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge. So sorry it has taken me so long to make it around to leave comments.
