Valentines Day

Good morning! ok, its "good morning" again, and I am late with my little valentine selections! I used the Dutch Dobadoo Swing card template. I wanted to feature these with several templates, (the cake, the gatefold, the camera & more), but of course, I am sooo slow!! Here are the two cards from the Romantic Swing.



Had some sunshine issues here. sorry!

 


                                                           

So this is the back side of the 'doggie' valentine. Since it is for Al, I had to add his Gracie running across the backyard on the back of the card.

Thanks for looking,

Hello Gorgeous!

Good morning! Today is a gorgeous day, so we are featuring 'Hello Gorgeous' stamp set from Honey Bee stamp company.



Tried to include  pictures of the stamp set. It has several small bouquets and nice bold greetings.



Use the HOPE die from paper trey ink here.
when I bought these Honey Bee included the Box with Balloons set.  I used them both, the bouquet in the box for one of the cards. So versatile!



Had so much fun with these!
 
Thanks for looking!

Tuesday Feb 6th

It is another beautiful day here in Nevada. Go with it ...the weather report.... it was 76 degrees yesterday. Sunny and crispy. Nice. Yesterday was busy, but I finally decided I had better get it together and show you lovelies a couple more card ideas. So here we go! This is one of the Chantilly lace paper collection by Becca Feeken. This die is called Coralene chemise layering frame.

White with a bit of kraft to shadow the back. Matches the 'earthy' flowers.

 

Love the black and gold color combination. I just 'found' the scripture stamp in my stash. It was pristine. From Eureka stamps probably 15 years ago! The next on is a really pale blue. I used the flower from the Honeybee stamp set. It is called "Hello Gorgeous". I will be featuring cards from that set next.

Last one is the white on white & used the center die from the Coralene set.
 

Thanks for looking,

January is almost over!! When you think about 1 of ONLY 12 is over! Wow, doesn't time just disappear? I really don't like opening a blog and reading the woes of the day, or the weather, my apologies. One more thing. The weather is gorgeous here! A sunny 70 degrees today. May as well go for the whole package!

Sue Wilson (Creative Expressions) Noble lavish accented hexagon. This is elegant and easy!

Saturday January 20th!

It  occurred to me that I forgot to add the Birdie Brown Snowman "Waving Hi" cards! So lets start with those . So cute and so much fun to make. First one is a  shaker card!

The next card is a clear stamp set from "wish". Have no idea who the original manufacture was. She will make a nice card for a teenager.

 

 

 

 

Thanks for looking!!

Snow bears & birthday bears today. These are Birdie Brown designs from My Favorite Things Stamps. Had so much fun with both these sets! Years ago, all I did was 'altered art', never the 'cute' little character stamped cards. NOW, with even the grandchildren grown up, I am entering that 'fun' place! Ha! Well, at least for awhile!

I know the stamps are a year or older but keep looking, I bought the Birdie Brown elephants too!


 
 


 

 






 

The last two are shaker cards.



These are seriously cute!
