A Couple of Shares!


      Morning, everyone!  Here is a quick post of a couple challenges I have done, and have sitting on my desk.  The first is for Simon Says Stamp this week, and the challenge is called Get In Shape!  I found this sweet little birdhouse pattern, and went to town.  The pattern is from Paper Crafts magazine, and was designed by Kim Kesti


Other items I used are:

SU bird punch
Simon Says Stamp/ Memory Box Harrington Die
Assorted card scraps and an unknown glittered designer paper that I won.
Gold Cording from SU!
Color added by Copic markers, white ink.

     When this card is received, I thought the front could be removed and either used for a tag or hung as an ornament.



     The next cards are for the OWH Mid-Week Throwdown.  We are to start on our OWH Valentines for sending to our hero's.

     The first card is made from extra paper pieces I had left over from earlier in the week.  I just loved the colors, and used the negative from die cutting and filled it in with random hearts. The die is Sweet'n Sassy heart die.  My sentiment is from Love You To Bits.


     Card two was created by going in a drawer, and just picking out a stamp.  The one I chose was a rose from Inkadinkado.  I colored it with Memento markers and shadow stamped.  The sentiment is from Studio G.  There is a border die from MFT Die-namics.  Sponging is Cameo Coral SU! ink.

     Thanks for stopping by!  Hope your weekend full of fun!

There are some real nice things sitting on your desk that's for sure. Each of these cards are so very special and beautiful, but I am quite intrigued with the birdhouse. It will make a lovely tag and/or ornament. I love the papers you used on it and your white dots/dashes really pop. The recipients of the other two card will really know how much they are loved when they open these two beautiful cards. Have a fun weekend. Hope your family arrived in safely to your home.

Mary Anne,
That birdhouse is super adorable that recipient is going to be doing the happy dance! You are really getting creative with leftovers GF I love the heart one too. It's all about how creative you can be and why not use every scrap you can. I love that you just picked a stamp and went for it how fun :).

That birdhouse card is over the top, and I just LOVE all those hearts! SO clever of you to exchange different patterned hearts into the negative space! I hope your family made it home to have some quality time together!

Beautiful cards, I love the idea of just picking a stamp and challenging yourself to use it sight unseen.

Thanks for playing in our Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge this week!
