Gift Wrapped

I hope the beginning of fall sees you well and hopefully you had a great summer.  It seems like once September 1st hits, it's like someone flipped a switch... the days are so much shorter and the air has a lovely crisp, cool feel to it.
I recently headed on over to the Funky Kits site and took a good long browse through their new images and found this cute little pup which is called Gift Wrapped.  I thought it was so cute and would work for so many different occasions.  It also gave me a chance to use the new Spellbinder Borderabilities die I found in a shop.  Pricey little thing but a fabulous die and there's 7 different edges.  Wish I could say this one image is all I purchased but no... I got a few.  I always go with my own private mission statement... if one is good, then more is better!  hahahha... works for me!
I also discovered The Sugar Bowl challenge is starting up again and looking for some new DT members so I thought I would give it a try because Sugar Nellie has always been on my design team bucket list.  There's some fabulous projects entered into the mix so you should go check that out too.

Once again, I have used the Create with TLC sentiment Love Hugs Kiss which is one from the Just Be Happy set.  Love this sentiment!

Gorgeous colouring of this lovely furry friend Marilyn... and I love that border too! Think I may have that somewhere tucked away, so need to dig it out!

And I chuckled at your mantra.. if one is good then more is better! Will have to remember that one!

What I have to tell you - if Sugar Nellie doesn't choose you - they are foolish to say the least. I might not be able to design well but I know good design when I see it! You would be perfect!!
