I am on a roll - three cards this weekend and those are just the ones I've posted. I accomplished some design team work too. I am squeezing this one in for this week's There She Goes challenge to case a TSG design team member's project from the last release previews.

I chose to to case the uber-talented Jenny. The image Jenny used is on my wishlist and I love how she showcased it with this well designed card you see to the left.

I won the Shiver Me Timbers stamp set back in April but unfortunately have not had a chance to use it until now. I did a bit of masking so I could perch the parrot on top of the treasure chest. I cut out the image with Spellbinders Nestabilities with some out of the box action for the parrot. The miniature map was stamped separately, fussy cutting it out after coloring with Copic Markers. The paper is from one of my favorite summer themed pads Fancy Pants Down by the Shore.

I'll close out the week with some cute puppy pics although it's nearly impossible to get a good photograph when she is constantly on the move. We are enjoying Zoe but frankly we had forgotten just how difficult it is to potty train. Let's just say that we've taken up every rug we own due to the potential for "accidents".

Here she was having a fit because her "Daddy" was outside without her:

Zoe wouldn't stay in her bed much at first but we finally figured that it was because she could see Don but not me when she was in it. Moving it to a spot where so she could keep an eye on both of us did the trick.
I hope to see you back here soon!
