Be Mine banner

Hello Everyone! I have a share today..I was busy trying to get valentines made and in the mail this past weekend...and the task has spilled over into the last two days too... While busy making cards, I amassed quite the pile of scraps on my desk of all the pretty papers found in the Stacked with Love DSP stack from the Occasions Catalog. I decided that when the cards were all done I would tackle that pile of scraps, and make SOMETHING... Most were not big enough to make a card with, so I decided on making a banner for Valentines Day.. 

I think it turned out super cute.. and didn't take long at all to make, and I get to enjoy it for years to come.. I was so excited about how cute it turned out that I decided to decorate a little pedestal picture frame with a little banner too - 

Yes, that is me and the Hubs from our recent romp in Washington, D.C. I thought the little banner was the perfect addition to the pic..Fun right!? OK, I am off to get the kiddos from school.. thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Wood you be mine?

Hey Everyone! it's been awhile...But it was out of my control. My computer decided it had enough of me, and my demands, and decided to up and quit.. I should have seen it coming really.. life was going a little to smoothly.. :)

 I also took a short trip with my darling husband to Washington D.C.. We took  in some sites, and took time to breathe a little with each other. We have never been "alone" on vacation together, and it was about time.. so thanks to my Mom, we escaped for a few days.. Yea! :) 

So this week I am excited to have a new computer,  and to play with some new stamps that came while I was away. Whoop! Today I am sharing a card made with a Valentine set from the Occasions mini called "Wood you be Mine".. its a little quirky at first glance, but Super Fun!! Here is my card - 

I used my Blendabilities markers to color this LOVE-able Lumberjack shouting "Timber!"
Here is the inside  -

I just separated the sentiment, masked it, and stamped the tree line image so it appears behind it. I love it! This is such a fun Valentine I can't wait to send it! :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Greetings from Earth

Hey Everyone! I have been trying to knock out some last minute Christmas cards the last few days, and wanted to share a card that I really like and is not your typical "Christmas/Holiday" card. I always try to look at my stash of stamps and try to figure out how to use them for every occasion. I pulled out the set Greetings From, and a retired set called Greetings of the season, and came up with this -

Super fast and clean and simple card... Just paper and ink..really. I think its perfect to give to anyone during the holiday season. Yea! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
