Happy Valentine's Day

In true fashion, I stayed up way past my bedtime to get these cards finished for today.  Once I get started creating, it's hard for me to stop.  At least this time I had my sugar cookies done earlier in the evening!

The images I worked with are Valentine Punnies by Whimsie Doodles and Fun Foods Idaho Study by Fresh Brewed Designs (unfortunately their website isn't working).  These images are simple and fun to work with, make sure to add them to your stash!

Used glossy accents and pink stickles to add some bling (Make my Monday Challenge)

Manly Amazing

Sometimes creating masculine cards can be daunting, there seems to be an abundance of girly embellishments where masculine embellies are few and far between!  I had this same problem trying to find cute clothes for my baby boys!!

With all that being said, I find less is more when creating those manly cards anyways!!




I bought a pile of digis from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps a while back (and am sad to report that I have since lost them all when my flash drive was corrupted) and I managed to print off a couple of sheets before I lost them all and have now been creating a nice selection of manly cards for my stash.

Meet Run Derek Run. He's a kind ol' chap and was fun to work with.  I colored him up with my Copic markers and added some layers, twine, brad and washi tape to complete the card.  I hope card puts a smile on your face!

Cheers!

Hottie

Summer has arrived ... well in some parts anyways!  We had a beautiful May, hot and sunny then the weather turned unsettled in June and today as I look out my window it's gray and rainy.  To brighten things up I created this card using Little Umbrella by Mo Manning.


I colored her up with my Copic markers, added some layers, ribbon and i-candy - instant summer!

Dad, You're the Best!

Time to celebrate that special Dad in your life!  They will be proudly sporting those ties, socks, bathrobes, hats and playing with their new sporting gear and tools!


This image is BBQ Bill from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.  My poor hubby has the same look on his face very time he tries to barbeque.  The boys and I have come to realize that no matter how hard he tries, everything will be well done.

I hope you all spoil your men and have fun!!

Get well soon!

The thing I'm happiest about with this card is the cheeriness of it.  I hope it makes someone's day a little bit brighter!



The stamp is by Lawn Fawn "on the mend" and have had this set for at least 2 years but have never used them until I purchased the matching dies last week, poor little stamps!

I colored the flowers with copic markers, added some glossy accents on the flower faces and a bit of glitter on the vase.
