Life Is Sweet with Top Dog Dies

Life is sweet, and for me, it's been even sweeter since I was asked to join the Top Dog Dies Design Team.  I just LOVE creating with these sweet die-cuts.  I will be posting in March to showcase my work using their new releases.  You will LOVE these sweet new die-cuts; but I must say that you will be just as delighted by all the amazing dies they already carry in their amazing shop at Top Dog Dies.  I encourage you to stop by and check out all the amazing die-cuts they carry.  And then, in March, you will be able to see their new releases.  How exciting!

As the new dies continue arrive in my mailbox, I still believe that the Madison Doily Die remains my favorite.  And to be perfectly honest, I am certain that it will always remain a favorite for me.  I have always loved using doilies on my cards and projects, and this sweet die-cut just makes it so easy to create sweet doilies for all my cards.  It's awesome to be able to match my die-cuts to every project I create with this sweet Madison Doily Die.
For this "Life Is Sweet" card, I used some Cosmo Cricket Tea For Two patterned papers and sentiment sticker.  I cut my pink doily from these same papers using my Top Dog Dies favorite Madison Doily Die-Cut and combined it with the sweet Top Dogs Wildflowers Die which I cut two of, and grouped together.  I machine stitched the card, and then added a seam binding bow, and a button with baker's twine tied in the center.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  If you haven't checked us out yet, I invite you to check out the Top Dog Dies Facebook Page and the Top Dog Dies Blog so that you won't miss any of the latest news, special offers, and to get lots of great inspiration.

Have a great weekend!
