Happy Hello

I don't really have any 'punny' stamps but did manage to dig out this totally cute Magenta stamp that is part of my 'piggy' collection.  The sentiment stamp is from Jilly Bean Soup and Unity.  I'm pretty sure both of these are courtesy of my wonderful friend Barb.

I colored the background kraft paper with LuminArte's Twinkling H2O's (Pink Azalea and Key Lime)

I'm also playing along with  Addicted to Stamps and More where the challenge is CAS cards.
The design is based on this week's CAS(E) This Sketch.

Me + You.

Today, I'm joining in on a few challenges.  
First is the Sending Hugs Monthly challenge over at the Penny Black Blog where the challenge is to make a love or friendship theme card/project.

Next I'm playing along with challenge # 25 at CAS on Sunday where the theme is Lovey Dovey.

Lastly, I'm joining in with this week's sketch challenge at Less is More.

The stamp is Together Always from Penny Black  Love it, it's such a great image and perfect sentiment.  Hearts were die cut from felt using Lawn Fawn's Heart Dies.

I think this will make a great 'guy' card for Valentine's Day.  It's always hard to make those.

This is a fabulous sketch for a sympathy card where clean, simple and serene is needed.

Happy Anniversary

Hmmm, 3 days in a know I can't keep this pace up.  :) 
But it's been fun.  Glad to have some creativity back.

Today's card is for the Simon Says Stamp Monday blog challenge to make a project that is inspired by the letter A.  Here's my Anniversary card.

The patterned paper is from Kaisercraft (Sixpence), sentiment sticker is from Creative Imaginations, not sure who the heart stamp is from, I stamped it with VersaMark and heat embossed with white, then cut it out.  All the hearts and love charm are from my stash.  Ribbon is from Offray.  Background embossing folder is another new one from Anna Griffin that I recently got from Simon Says Stamp.  I dry brushed the embossed panel and the edges with DecoArt's Light Antique White acrylic paint.

Dry Embossing Happy Birthday

Good Morning!  Wow, 2 posts in a row...not sure I can keep this up.  :)

As the creative mojo slowly returns, I'm glad to have found this dry embossing challenge on Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog.  I love using embossing folders to add texture to cards.

Just a Note

After many weeks of searching for my lost mojo, it has returned, albeit slowly.  
Thank goodness for this weeks' CAS(E) this Sketch sketch # 60, it's what finally got me going.  

Thank goodness also for the new pad of patterned paper I got from My Mind's Eye (Lost and Found 3) on sale at Winner's.  I love this wonderful bright pattern that is so perfect for a dull January day.

The sentiment sticker is from an old sheet of stickers that I've had for ages, manufacturer unknown.  Seemed to fit perfectly here.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hoping to visit here more often myself!  :)
