Sketch challenge #9 and furry friends=two for the work of one!

Busy week turning former bedroom closet into craft room storage closet (yeah!!!) so decided to cheat a bit and combine the sketch and midweek challenges into one card featuring everyone's favorite beagle hurrying to deliver a love letter. Used my new Texture Boutique to emboss some green cardstock with Cuttlebug "distressed stripes" in about 15 seconds!

Love is fickle (and sometimes cheap.....)

So, I admit it = I'm in love with my Coach bags. But I never pay full price for them and shame on my husband for stopping at outlet malls where they have a store. And pooh on them for opening an outlet at Concord Mills and giving out those additional 30% off sale price coupons in Gaffney... don't they know I'm retired now???? They should know better..... BUT BUT I think I may be getting fickle in my "older" (not "old") age! Am I ever in love with this little Sizzix Texture Boutique handbag that I got last week for $19.99! Move over "Coach" - you've been replaced by an even better bargain. I do have a Big Shot (too big to lug around and a pain to get off the top closet shelf to emboss a few cards) but this embosser is my new best crafty friend. It doesn't multitask but it embosses Sizzix and Cuttlebug embossing folders equally well and I had so much fun playing with it and the 6 Cuttlebug folders I got for $2.00 each!! :::thinking I saved so much I might go back and get that Coach wallet........ nah!::
