Playing With My Paper Pups

We drove up to Alyeska this morning and had breakfast at The Bake Shop.  Word of advice, they only take cash and in state checks... information that would have been good to know BEFORE we ordered breakfast. LOL  Good thing there was an ATM within walking distance.... which my hubby walked to in the 15 degree weather..... in the dark..... up the hill.... in the snow...   :)

And yes, when we got back home after putting away the groceries and making our lunch, I got out my Paper Pups cartridge to do some playing. I have really enjoyed doing this Paper Pups Series.  At some point next week I will be starting a new series.... not sure yet with which cartridge.

If you have any questions about the Paper Pups, or would like to see a particular cut, please do not hesitate to let me know!

I made 3 cards today.  Here they are with the details after each one.

  2. Hi Janis! Thanks for visiting my blog. Love your gorgeous pix of Alaska and your Paper Pups series is AMAZING! That's such a great way to get the most from your carts and really learn the cuts. Seems like I've gotten so many recently I have NO IDEA what's on them. I'm still recovering from CHA and today I've been busy doing DT cards for The Cuttlebug Spot and now I'm on to BTTB2. Don't forget our blog hop tomorrow. xxD
