Sprinkled with Fun

One more post today. This card combines two great companies - Ellen Hutson and Avery Elle. I used two "Pixie Dust" fairies, several stamps from "Bear Wear," the sun from "All Inside," and a sentiment from "Warm Fuzzies."

Valentine "Fur" You

Hello Blog land. I'm back with a sweet card for Valentine's Day featuring a kitty from "I Knead You" from My Favorite Things. It also features a stencil of paw prints which I just purchased recently from MFT, stenciled behind the kitty using Antique Linen Distress Ink. I am entering this card in the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #315. You can see the sketch below. Thanks for checking out my blog today.

It moose be Valentine's Day

Hello Bloggers. It's been a few days since I posted a card, but I have been making more Valentine's Cards for the Cards From the Heart drive for children in hospitals being sponsored by Winter Sims. Her email is if you want to contact her and send cards for this wonderful drive. Thanks for stopping by.
My card today is a little square card which I am going to enter in the 

The central image of the moose colored with copic markers is from Mint Owl Studio - "I Moose You," ans o is the little sentiment "It moose be." The trees are from Lawn Fawn "Toboggan Together." The white heart is from Spellbinders and the green heart is a Savvy die cut. The sentiment on the tag at the bottom is from Technique Tuesday's "Say It Happy" set.

Nuts About You

I have another Valentine's Card. This one is part of a batch I am making for "Cards From the Heart" Card Drive - for kids in hospitals. I am so happy to be able to participate in this drive again this year.
And, I am entering this card in the Sugar Pea Mix it Up Challenge #27 for January.

For this card, I stamped the acorns and used copic markers to color them for the background panel. I used a new fishtale die from MFT for the center piece with my cute squirrel. All of the stamps are from "Nuts About You" from Sugar Pea Designs. I cut off the acorn the squirrel was holding and substituted a heart for Valentine's Day!

Just Fur You

Hello Bloggers. Did you get some snow? We had a few inches, but I was comfy and enjoying myself in the craft room this morning! Here's a Valentine card using some MFT stamps and dies.
I am entering this card in the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #314. Check out the cute entries there.  Thanks for checking out my blog today.

For this card, I used the "I Knead You" stamp set, a Die Namics heart die, and the Country Fair Plaid 6 x6 patterned paper.

Hello again, friends. I wanted to try a new stamp set I bought recently called "Piece of Cake." Here's the card I put together using the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #313. I added the little brown "paper clip" in place of another piece of card stock for some variety! I love the aqua and brown together and feel this card could work for a masculine birthday as well as a female! Thanks for visiting my blog today.



Happy New Year, Bloggers! I have a super cute birthday card today. 
It's a shaker card, which is always a challenge for me, but it turned out great. 
I made this card for my grandson who will be 9 in two weeks! I am entering it in the
