Hello, hello friends!!!
I'm back this time a bit more consistent. My DH was away in a conference (Young Adult Christian Networking) for a week which meant I was left without a computer. Anyhow, it sure does feel good to be back and like I said I am going to be sharing more than one card per post, just for catch up :)
So, shall we begin? I think so :)
My first card was inspired by a card I received from Anthropologies. It was a very simple pierced cupcake card. I was so in-love with the concept I had to create my own version. So I took a pencil and lightly wrote the word love then pierced it. Then with a felt marker I drew a line under it and a heart. To finish it off I distressed the edges using my Palette burnt umber and added some stickles to the heart. Simple and different ;)
My next card uses as it's focal point an itty bitty paper quilt. I used one of my all time favorite stamp sets from Papertrey Ink and that is their Quilters Sampler set. When I first saw it I knew it was a set I had to add at some point to my collection because it's so homey. So to create it I stamped the quilt blocks onto my basic cardstock then I used a die cut to give it the pretty shape; using my color pencils I colored each block and finally cut each one and adhered it to another piece of die cut I had prepared. I used some pop up sicker to add dimension. Cards like these make me think of special anniversary's.
My final card is one I created for Winter's Cards for St. Jude Project. I love anything that has to do with supporting a charity. So I've created 4 of these and I'll be sending these her way tomorrow. Go check out her blog I believe she has some goodies to give away as part of the project. **The cards will be collected through out the month of January so you still have time :)
So there ya have it. I'll be back tomorrow to share some more cards, and Valentine's Day treat plus the recipe ;)
As for my exciting news... well not ready yet, but do stay tuned!! I'll be posting the giveaway very soon :)
Blessings and happy creating to all,
