Happy Valentine's Day!

     Since I have to work tomorrow, I wanted to be sure and do a post for all the lovely people out there.  This card was created with stamps I purchased on Ebay, an SU! sentiment,  Fun Papers from Hobby Lobby with a background created with a cross stitch semi circle.  My lips are Real Red ink from SU!, and are stamped and cut with a die from Diamond Press.

    Here is a second version I made using more flowers on designer paper, punched hearts, and a die cut border. I just thought this fun lady was a riot and makes me laugh when I think about her as perhaps someone's granny!  I did her coloring in Copic markers.  Going to have to search lots to see who makes her.  Isn't she a riot?

     Anyway, Have a wonderful day, that is full of hearts and flowers.  Maybe some wine and a nice dinner for you, also!  You still have some time to come up with a perfect treat for your honey! Time is rushing by so quickly that, we decided that our existing home needs to get listed.  That will be this afternoon.  Wish us luck!

Hip To Be Square!

     I do not usually make square cards, but for some reason this card was calling to me.  My base is navy card with a layer of Penny Black designer paper.  I used tattered edge, square dies for both my navy and white layer.  Sponging was done with old olive.  Recently I purchased the Happy Tails bundle from SU!, and I just love the Dog Builder punch.  That created my silhouette.

      Also used were some Judith stick stamps, for the hearts and swirls, and Nuvo drops in clear.  My with love die is an unknown.  There is Wink of Stella on the mouth heart.

     Looks like warmer weather is headed our way, and that will be a pleasant change.  Enjoy your weekend!

Stuck on Valentines

     Happy Friday!  Can you believe I am posting again?  It is these darn Valentines... There is so much junk out on my desk, that I just keep making them!  I have even been cutting up ancient designer papers and using scraps.

     This first card uses a kraft card background with a layer of Hobby Lobby paper.  My sentiments are printed and cut with a stitched oval die.  Small hearts are a Marvy punch and the border lace is unknown.  Baker's twine, gems and a wee bit of sponging, completed this card.

     Card #2 starts with a black background, a layer of hoarded paper, an embossed strip by Diamond Press, and a bit of gold glitter card.  This also includes a My Favorite Things bear colored with Copic markers and popped up.  Same oval die cut, same sponging and printed sentiment (slightly different).

     This crazy weather has felt like we are living in polar regions.  I was able to work early this week and stay snuggled inside for most of this.  Everyone stay warm!
