Winter Blues

     I saw this newly posted challenge at Shopping Our Stash, and I knew I had recently created a card that would work for it.  It is Challenge # 412- Winter Blues.  I had received this gorgeous, big snowflake made by Colorado Craft Co., a little late for this years Christmas cards, but oh how I love it!

     I put it into my Misti and stamped it out with Midnight Muse ink form SU!.  After finding this gorgeous loopy edge rectangle die in my stash, I cut it out, off to one side.  I layered it onto a white card base that was layered with a very old blue striped designer paper.  For sparkle, I added droplets of Nuvo Blizzard drops in the snowflake pattern, and then added the sentiment that was also in the stamp kit. 

     Well lookie here I made it through a second post on this beastly new machine!  I now see why people say they have a love/hate relationship with computers.  Ugh.  Have a blessed day!

A little Valentine

     Before my blog shrivels up and blows away, I figured I had better post something.  I have been making tons of Valentines, but had to learn a new computer and now that I am up to date with Windows 10, my editing program changed.  I am not feeling like a very patient person.  Anyway, I will get the hang of it, I guess.

     Today's card uses many things, some of which I have had stashed for ages.  I started with a heavy weight black base and patterned 12x12 sheet of designer paper from Tuesday Mornings.  The small Flourish dies were a gift, but I do know they are from Cheery Lynn.  The heart punches, as well as the Large Numbers, are both SU!  The Numbers were cut from Luxury card stock by Crafter's Companion.  The heart border die is unknown, but it was cut 2x so I could fill some of the hearts in with white.I also have a set of small letter dies which I used for the FEB.  All that is left, is the simple red satin bow.

I would like to enter this to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, All Loved Up.  I think this shows lots of love!

     Hope all has been well in your little part of this crazy universe! Thanks for taking a look.  I am sure I will get the hang of this.
