My name is Bobbi, and I am a paper hoarder....

I wasn't going to post this, but my dear friend Diana insisted.  I am a paper hoarder.  OK, I said it.  Out loud.  I love paper, and tend to wait until the perfect storm of paper, concept, and execution converge until I actually cut into that perfect piece of paper.  These cards are an example.

I started with this piece of paper from a VERY old Ki Playful Pets pad:

Too cute to waste on just any card.

Then I added this one from the same pad:

Last, I bought some ribbon at a show that I just HAD to have.

And this is the result:

I couldn't bear to waste any of this fab paper, so I added some bones and paw prints to the inside of the card.

Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge - Snowflakes

This month, the OWH Our Daily Bread Designs challenge is to make Non-Christmas cards with Snowflakes on them.

I always need thank you cards after the holidays, and I think our heroes will, too.   I decided to take it one step further, and use non-traditional winter colors, too!

DCWV paper embossed with snowflake folder, Fiskars sentiment heat embossed with white embossing powder, stash dimensional snowflake attached with super thin Zots.

This month's challenge at is Paved with Paw Prints - all about our furry friends!  Check it out!

Added Note: I have received a few questions about embossing on vellum.  Most vellum will crack when embossed with a folder.  To keep it from cracking, I add a piece of medium weight card stock to the embossing sandwich.  Problem solved!
