Blue Dog and The Unity Wednesday Challenge

The other night I get home from work to find my family room carpet looking like this

This is just a small sampling- there is blue everywhere and little blue pawprints all over the house. I can't imagine who could have done such a thing....

Can you?

At least it was a crayola marker so it's water soluble. I have not found any pieces of it though so she must have eaten the whole thing. That's what Cocoa does. She eats things. Nothing is safe. She's eaten holes in our comforters, all of my flip flops (my fault I know), see that couch she's sitting on? She's even been eating the frame underneath- and before you tell me to buy her a toy, trust me we have, they work for about a day or two until she eats them.

Here is my card for the Unity Wednesday Challenge at Splitcoast. The challenge today was to create a masculine card. I have trouble with boy cards so this WAS a challenge.

Supplies Used: Pattern Paper; Memory Box

Stamps: Unity Stamp Company; Tiny Trinity, Simply Said

Hemp, eyelets

I also did this layout inspired by the new sketch site Inspired Blueprints.

Supplies Used:
Pattern Paper: Basic Grey
Bazzill cardstock with an Edge
Unity Stamp Company: Oh what a beautiful morning, Sept KOM, Oct KOM, Owl always love you, Simply Said

That's me and my Sister in Spirit, Stephanie at her going away party in the summer of 2007. She moved to Japan, and I miss her so much. She was here this past June and stayed with us for a week and we had so much fun. She's my person. Meredith has Christina (Grey's anatomy reference here) and I have Steph. If you get a chance stop by her blog and tell her I said to get her non-bloggy butt blogging again. She has some pretty cool pictures there too.
That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by!
