Happy Friday!!!

...well tomorrow that is.

Here is another card I made.

The image is created by Faith. She does terrific work. You can find her here, she also has a fanatic store were you can purchase her digital stamps!!!

Now, I am going to be totally honest here. I found this the most challenging image to create something with. Now that is only because I am in such a valentine's mood. I made it through though and made a really awesome card.

Hope you enjoy!

For this card I used Close to my Heart paper. I printed the image on Bella's bestest paper and coloured the image with copic markers, and shaded with pencil crayons. I used CTMH rubons for the love in the bottom right hand corner. I also added a bit of bling in the top right hand corner.

It's snowing

Hey ladies,

I am so toasty warm today inside watching the snow falling down. I worked on another card this afternoon using one of Faith's Digital Stamps. You can find them here: Designed2Delight Digital Stamps

Here stamp is called "Love you cupcake". SO cute!

I used copic markers to colour the image and used blue pencil crayon and goo gone to shade the back ground. The paper is Close to my Heart.

Here are the colours I used:

Cupcake bottom: E31
Cupcake top: R20, R21
Heart candies: YG03, R24

I used stickles to add the bling!

Well I hope you are all toasty warm inside too!!

Hope you enjoy the card.

hello all!!

I was working late all week so I didn't get to post. But I will make up for it.

On Saturday my friend Carol hosted a crop. It was great!! It was supposed to run from 1pm-9pm....we were there until 12:30ish. Carol, Marg, and myself closed the joint down. LOL. I did get lots of Valentine's cards done. Here are a few:

For these cards I used older paper by Close to my Heart that I had in my stash.

The stamps are my Inkadinkado, Animal Hearts. I had fun adding bling and ribbon to these.

Well, I hope that you enjoy these cards as much as I did making them.

Now off to bed for me as I have to get up early tomorrow for work!

Here is my creating using her wonderful stamp...

I used Close to my Heart paper, rub-ons, and ink. I used C1 and C4 copics to colour the lambs legs. I shaded the image with pencil crayons and goo gone. I added some jewels to the right of the image for a bit of bling.

Saturday Night...Sunday Morning

Good Morning everyone...it is now Sunday Morning. I am having a late night today because I am working away in my studio preparing for the 15th in which my friend carol and I are having a ten hour crop!! YAY very excited. I am also adding to my stash of cards, very low on thank you cards.

My family and I went to the movies last night (saturday) to see The Fighter with Mark Wahlberg. Yummy! I love him as an actor, Amy Adams and Christian Bale were amazing too.

I recommend this movie to anyone who loves an underdog or a very inspiring movie. It is based on the life of boxer "Irish" Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg), his older half brother Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale). It takes place before he went pro in the mid 1980's. The coolest part was during the credits. They have both Micky and Dicky sitting down together talking to the audience. It was really neat!!

Ok so enough about the movie, on to my card for the day!!!

I am working on some valentines too to take to work here is one design I Scraplifted and changed up a bit that I saw in a magazine.

I used Bella Blvd. - December Details - Sugar Plums paper, so extra cardstock I had. The ink I used is Close to My Heart Cranberry. The stamps are Gelatins (Hearts a Flutter) and Inkadinkado (An affair of the heart).

Hope you enjoy!!
