Be My Valentine

I love making Valentine cards!! But I am very far behind on the number of them I need to make! But here are 3 (and the only 3) I have made so far! My first one uses the chipboard hearts from CTMH and I sponged tulip ink on it. The words together comes from the card chatter - love stamp set.D1464
this next card is a http://www.house-mouse.com/ stamp set! I just love them :) Hearts are from the affection c1441 stamp set from close to my heart. And the new sparkle flourishes! I just LOVE them!!!

 And this card uses the retired stamp set called In My Heart from Close to my heat and the new bakers twine. I also love this! This was my first time using it..

All the "patterned paper" is STILL wrapping paper from a Christmas gift from my sister in law :)

Sneak Peak with Stella

I have been working with new stamps, papers and embellishments from CTMH's New spring/summer idea book :) I just love butterflies and the stella paper! Here are some cards for you to see...this first card uses the new stella paper pack, quick cards-butterfly and sparkle flourishes with siver glitter gel.


My next card uses the same paper, stamps and ink but with the bronze glitter gel.
And this last card was an inspiration from http://cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com/ clean and simple sketch challenge. I hope you like them.

Hello

I really wanted to get more done today but after my weight class I was just too drained to do to much! Luckily it was my day off and my kids were sooo great to help with the cleaning!! There are a lot of challenges I wanted to do but I only managed one :) over at CCEE there was a sketch and I love how my card turned out! My second card is cute but definatly not my fav. Check them out :)

The paper is actually STILL from my recycled wrapping paper from Christmas...it is very shinny which is why the picture didnt show up so well. Thanks for looking...Hope your week coming up is excellent!! I am working all week so I will be very busy :)
