Welcome to new Members and Dynamic Duo

Not only do I have 3 new members 

(Sorry, can't find a link)

to welcome to my blog. Go and checkout their's if you have time - its definitely worthwhile. Cathy has a new blog -great finds can be made there and Judy I have known forever from flickr, but just discovered her blog 2 days ago (spent quite some time there), funny, how things go...


 I can also welcome a new member to my family:


 a Russian dwarf hamster - my son got her for his birthday. He is sooo happy to have her!

 I don't want to test your patience - usually I have welcome picture for my new members, but lets just keep it with the hamster pics for now, I don't want this post to get out of hand. I post a welcome picture in my next blog post  - I guess you have to come back and check it out ;)


  BLACK and GREY  

 that is  the challenge at
 Dynamic Duos this week. Uh-oh, for me that IS a challenge. What happened to color??? Anyhow, the alternate option was not really an alternative for me, with those colors the ONLY thing I can think of is a masculine card - something I normally try to avoid.....


So here is my concoction:

I used a grey card base and stamped with Black ink on it, using the Hero Arts Tweed Background stamp. The other stamps are Studio 112 and the arrow is a QuicKutz die. I fastened the arrow with a little brad.

And before I forget - I got quite many comments recently - thank you all so much - I enjoy soooo much reading them! Have a great day!

Tweed is perfect for these colors!! We got 2 dwarf hamsters for our sons last summer ... unfortunately a couple months into it one of the hamsters was trying biting the other one's nose off. So now we have TWO large cages on top of the dresser! They are very low maintenance at least. : )

I forgot to comment on that incredible shmmery card!!! I have some Perfect Pearls not being used ... will have to investigate the technique.

The hamster is just so cute, and love her name! :) Your card is a fabulous masculine card, and a great use of the colours. Thank you for sharing your card with us this week at Dynamic Duos.

Your new family member is so incredibly cute!!!! I would spend hours playing with her!
Masculine theme is tricky for most of us but a result almost always is weighty and stylish. Love your card!
