Yappy St. Patrick's Day!

Last July, the paper crafting world lost a mentor, a friend and a lovely, talented, creative and generous lady, Sheila McShea AKA She's a Sassy Lady.  I had the honor to contribute to her blog and every now and then I still have an idea and think, "Yes!  Sheila will like that so I'll use it as my Sassy post this month!" I call them my 'Sassy' moments.  

So my latest 'Sassy' moment started when I found a really, really cute chihuahua cut from the Four Legged Friends cart and used it on my DGD's Valentine card.   It's soooo cute and when I'd finished the project, I had the idea to adapt the card for St. Patrick's Day, Easter, birthdays, Christmas etc, etc by changing out the heart in his mouth and adding a hat and appropriate images.   DS makes this easy with the "Save As" option.  It's kinda like the Cricut version of the Tim Holtz crazy dogs.  I think Miss G will enjoy receiving each installment of the collection.  : )

Here are the cards I've made so far.  Don't you just love the little St. Paddy's Day hat? 




"Yappy Birthday" with cuts from Doodlecharms,  To You From Me, and Charmed.





Here's the Valentine's card that started the process.  Cute, cute, cute!







 I am linking my St. Patrick's Day chihuahua with the Cute Animal challenge at BBTB2 here.   (How serendipitous is that?)  Thanks for visiting with me today.   Miss you, Sheila!     Christine

  2. I think Sheila would love your cards. The pattern paper on his face is perfect. I'm going to have to check out that cartridge. TFS.
