Rockin' Love Bug

I am trying to get a few Valentine's made by completing a few challenges. This first card used the Sketch Saturday and OCC ~ Masculine Valentine. Ya know, it's realy hard to make a card that is not to foo foo. I asked Roe if he thought this card was "masculine?" He said, "Well, except for the hearts and butterflyies." What butterflies? Those are just swirly strings to accentuate the hearts. Oh well, I worked all afternoon getting this card the way I wanted it, and I think it is "very masculine!:

Stamps: CTMH You Rock, Verve You Rock
Paper: Mix of SU & CTMH
CB Embossing Folder: Fleur DeLis
Embossing Powders: black, cranberry, silver
Accents: black hemp & CTMH Top Coats "Rockin"

The next card is using SFYTT & Crazy 4 Challenges ~ Valentine card/
Paper: SU Rasberry Tart
Stamps: Lovey Huggabug from Stampinbella
Spellbinders Labels & Dalia's? (not sure what the flower is called)
Accents: pearls and WM ribbon.

This first card uses a sketch from ( I used a new stamp for me. It is from ( and is called Swiss Pixie Birgitta. She really is a cutie. I used some old dp scraps and colored with copics. I also addded a bit of Stickles and brown Liquid Applique. I love the flowers with the courdoury brads.

Next, is is a sketch from ( I may have gotten a little carried away with the flowers. He he. The paper is new SU Christmas Cocoa and is actually flocked. Stamp is from ( and is called Mistletoe and Mice from Stampavie. Again, I used copics to color and added a few foo foo brads and ribbon.

Praying for Nellie

I made this little card for my friend at work and her dog. The dog has cancer and is living day to day at this point. My friend is very sad and I feel for her.

This is my first time to make a Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSC47). It is from the blog When I saw that it was long and skinny, my mind immediately went to work on this card. I just bought some 3 5/8 x 6 1/2 envelopes and wanted to make a fun size card to put in them. This card is 3 1/4 x 6 1/4.
Stamps = SU's Wellness Wishes
DP = Dogs & Cats by Design Originals
Embellys = Wal~Mart Ribbon (LUV
This dp has a long story on how I acquired it, but I won't tell it. Just know that it is special! LOL
It is dated 2006, but I like to pull it out from time to time, and it was perfect for this projects!
Thanks for stopping by!

Turkey Time

Bring on the Turkey! Well, I'm not really wanting to make fall cards this year. I want to concentrate on Christmas. I want to make my own Christmas cards this year. So, you'll probably be seeing a lot of them here.
But before I get started on those, I wanted to use this new Inkadinkado stamp a bought at HL this week from the clearance box... go figure! I thought he was a good investment for my collection. The paper is a mixture of SU Parisian Breeze and DCWV Luxury Stack. I used my new Fleur De Lis Shapeabilities Pendant and added some small pearls. Accents = Walmart ribbon, SU buttons, and CTMH felt die cuts.
I am THANKFUL you stopped by!

An Apple a Day...

This little Emma Stamp comes from I received it about a week ago, but haven't had time to ink it up. I really like these stamps from CC Designs.

This weekend, I'm trying to use up some of my older DP. This paper is SU's Bella Rose. This card was super easy and fast to make. I turned MOJO108 sideways and added this beautiful ribbon from Wal~Mart. Finally, I used my copics to color Apple Emma. Enjoy!
