Life is an Adventure

Just a quick card to start off the second semester...
I finally broke down and bought Artistic Outpost's Adventure set, at the same time I bought this fun My Mind's Eye garland.  Put 'em together on some Amuse Eucalyptus paper and thought it was the perfect card for my cousin who was celebrating his birthday at Marine boot camp.  Plus, if you squint, it kind of looks like a corgi, doesn't it? 

Hope your new year is off to a good start!  Mr Corgi and I are going to try "No Web Wednesday" after work today, but I will try to get a tutorial of my slider card up in the next couple of days.  Until then, enjoy the direction the wind takes you!

Totally cool, Meg! I love your new stamp--and, yeah, I *can* see the corgi (if I squint!). Super card--good luck with your No Web Wednesday. You are a braver girl than I!

I LOVE this card, Meg! Your cousin is sure to love it. No web Wednesday, huh? It sounds like something we ALL should do once a week! :)

It does look like a corgi! Quickly I was wondering how the heck you did that!!! LOL

What a great idea NWW is!!
Now that I have an ipad, me and hubby sit on the couch next to each other playing words with friends against each other on the ipad.

I told him last night we might never have a conversation ever again!! DOH!

I seriously thought that was Addy at first and thought, man, that is one cool stamp! I've never heard of AOA but now I'm going to check 'em out, thanks to you. I love how you used this stamp. This is such a cool card for your cousin!

Oh yeah, you only have to squint a teeny bit! I'm amazed you didn't buy this set the moment you saw it! Okay, corginess aside, this is one awesome card, love it!

No web? Bad things would happen around here if we tried that...talking NEVER ends well! lol
This is a fabulous guy card, and the sentiment is truly great. And look how happy that dog is? must be a corgi :)

Whoa, that is a cool almost-corgi! I love the color combo, I love the garland (shocker), and I think the overall effect is perfect for your cousin!
