{valentine challenge}

Good evening....tonight's card was one I did this week for the Cards Challenge over at Challenge Masters. What a great site! You should definitely check it out.....lots of fun challenges and inspiration over there!

Also....I will be the new Stamping Group challenge leader starting next week! I am so excited to share my creativity with others for their inspiration!

I started with a base of Basic Gray SU cardstock, layered with some Fancy Pants patterned paper. The taffeta ribbon, stamps and punches are also from Stampin' Up. I cut the large felt heart with my Spellbinders Nestabilities and Big Shot, then hand stitched around the edge and inked it up with a little red ink. Also added some machine stitching around the edge of patterned paper.....which I am obsessed with now! It's an illness! Can't make a page or card without stitching! :)

Well that's it for tonight. Time to hit the hay, 5 am will come early enough!

Night :)

{cocoa gift!}

Yet another project from November! Adam and I had a dinner to attend and my sister was kind enough to come over and babysit Keira, so I made her this card and cocoa mix. All the patterned paper is from Stampin' Up, as well as the stamp set -- Like it a Latte. It is a retired set but one of my favorites! I will never get rid of it. :)

Hope you're having a good week. I am looking forward to a three day weekend coming up -- gotta love getting all the Federal Holidays off! :)

{anniversary card}

Well it seems I am FINALLY getting around to posting some cards from......November! Ugh. Life gets so busy sometimes! Especially with a little one. Keira is 8 months old now, and doing well. She'll be crawling any minute!

This card was for my in-law's anniversary. My MIL got a kick out of the big dog and little dog :)  Stamp is from Whipper Snapper, I embossed the image and colored it in with my Copics. I machine stitched around the main panel and added some brads to the corners. The sentiment is a Stampin' Up set, Happily Ever After.

Thanks for looking and I hope to get some more cards posted this week!
