I created two cards for the Creative Classroom Copic Challenge No. 11 color flowers.  Here are the two entries that I posted.

On this card I used Hero Arts stamps, that I have had in my collection for several years.  I am real pleased with the end result.

This digi stamp image is from Tiffany Doodles.  It is called Dogwoods.  It made into a beautiful card.  Thanks Tiffany.

I just had to have these stamps from the new Magnolia line called Your So Special, this is the Romantic Window and Tilda with Heart stamps.  I colored them with Copics.  I cut out Tilda and placed her on top of the window with pop dots, added a "Hugs" tag and a ribbon.  Isn't she cute!   I hope she brings a smile to my friends face and warms her heart.


I did two projects this year for Valentine's Day.  One is primarily for my kids in Children's Choir.  I made 26 of these.  They resemble the bags I made for Christmas.  Not too difficult to complete and the chocolate was a big hit with the kids.  I used The Stamps of Life set Hearts2Love, and one my new favorite punches from Martha Stewart, it's so cute.

The second project is for my hubby and my daughter and her boy-friend Michael.  I saw this project on Split Coast Stampers site and thought it would be fun to create.  They are pouches that hold a candy bar, when you pull the ribbon up on the top the candy pops out.  Love it.

Here is a close up of the heart detail on my hubbies.

It was a quick and fun project.  Hope they enjoy them.


I made two of these cards actually, for both my mom and my mother-in-law.  The center heart is from The Stamps of Life, Love2Hug set.  I stamped it then used embossing powder to give it extra punch.  A little sweep of pink over the top to complete the heart.  Four heart brads around the corners.  All set on a cream piece of paper punched with Martha Stewart punch around the page.  Finish with cute flower buttons and ribbon.  Hope both they like them.  Happy Valentine's Day Moms.....

I am very happy with the way this LOVE banner came together.  I saw the idea on line and it is pretty much a copy, but you know how that goes.  Can't ever match things up identically.
It uses corrugated cardboard as the base, with embossed black matt and embossed light pink Spellbinders labels 4.  Letters are cut using Alphalicious cartridge then embellished with brads and hearts cut with my Sizzix dies.  A folded paper ruffle at the bottom with a ribbon boarder and finish with ribbons along the top.
Lovin' it.  Here is a close up of the each letter.

Thanks for lookin'.  Have a great Valentine's Day.  More projects to come.
