You And Me Card

Hi everyone! I've got lots of errands to run today, so I'll be short and sweet. I thought I'd try my hand at a more masculine Valentine card for a change! I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers 140. Here is the sketch:
All of the patterned papers are from Making Memories the Passport collection. The stamp is by Inkadinkado.

Besides Friday Sketchers, I am linking to these challenges:

Tabby Cat Birthday Card

Happy Monday! Here is a card I made with a very old rubber stamp. I know I bought it several years ago and it has not seen ink ever! I probably bought it because it looks just like my cat, TC. I rediscovered it in my drawer and figured I would finally do something with it. It's from the stamp company, Rubber Soul. I need to see if they are still around because this stamp made a perfect impression the first time! I bought some new K and Company paper called Julianne at Micheal's last week. It has some vintage looking florals in blues,green and browns. Very pretty! I made this card for the Friday Mashup Sketch challenge this week. I tweaked the sketch a little to fit the smallness of the main image. I hope you like it!

Thanks for visiting today and have a great week!

My Love Valentine Card

Good morning everyone! Since February is upon us...I thought I would make another Valentine's Day card to share with you. This card is probably the most embellished card I have EVER made! I started layering and I could not stop myself. This post will be picture heavy because in order for you to see everything I took several closeups.

It all started innocently enough with my heart Sizzix die. I embossed it 3 times over with tinsel glitter embossing powder. My embellishing mojo took over from there and there is no less than 10 flowers and 4 ribbons here! I am totally giving this to my husband for Valentine's Day!

There are so many Valentine challenges going on this week, so here is the list of entries for this card:
Card Makin' Mommas
Off The Wall Craftiness
Polkadoodles (hearts)
Raise The Bar (hearts)
Stampin For The Weekend
Do You Stack Up? (red)
Paper Crafting Journey
Simon Says Stamp
Timeless Tuesday Challenge
Craft Your Passion Challenge (bling,heart)
Simon Says Stamp And Show

I think this is a personal record for number of challenges! Thanks for visiting today and have an awesome weekend!

A Little Hello

Good morning everyone! Today I'm posting a monochromatic card in shades of green and white. I made it for the Cardabilities Sketch 24 this week. I absolutely loved the sketch! I created this card by welding two shapes together in my Sure Cuts A Lot cutting program and cutting it with my Cricut. The bird is from the Straight From The Nest Cricut cartridge.

The patterned paper is from the Lush collection by My Mind's Eye. Flowers and pearl swirl are from Prima. The stamp is Hero Arts.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly Challenge (anything goes + flowers)
Sir Stampalot Challenge (all creatures great and small)
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge (make it monochromatic)

Thanks for visiting, please leave me a comment if you have time! I love hearing from you!

Whimsical Butterfly Thank You Card

Hi everyone!. If you are in an area that is being affected by  the snow and bad weather, please stay warm and safe! Hopefully this card will bring a dose of color to our gray and white days. I was in Micheal's this week and discovered a beautiful new line of paper by K and Company. It's called Sweet Nectar. It is really bright and cheery. I bought a 6x6 inch pad of it. I think as a card maker, that I am going to start seeking out only 6x6 or 8x8 papers. I have a HUGE stash of 12x12 papers in my craft room. The problem with a lot of them is that the patterns are way to big for a card and it just doesn't do cards justice. I like the way the papers are scaled down to accommodate the smaller paper. Just right for a card and smaller scrapbooks.

Here are my supplies:
Patterned Papers- K and Company
Card Stock- Bazzill
Stamps- Inkadinkado
Seam Binding- Etsy
Felt flower- K and Company
Paper Flowers- Taylored Expressions
Bling- Studio 18
Scalloped Circles- Cut with my Cricut- Martha Stewart Elegant cakes
Border Punch- EK Success
Markers- Copic

I am linking this up to the following challenges:
Get Sketchy 72 (sketch)
Anything Goes Challenge (butterflies)
For Fun Challenges ( spring)

Thanks for visiting today, I enjoy and appreciate your visits and comments!
