My Valentine

My Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day – I hope you get to spend some time today with someone(s) special – a spouse, a child, a sister, or a special friend! 

Here’s the Valentine I made for my sweet Valentine, Rich !  I “borrowed” his Dude, You’re Welcome Kit and made up a quick card for him –

Products Used for this Quick “Masculine Card” include:
Dude, You’re Welcome Kit # 132807
(this includes the Basic Gray Ink Pad and the I _____You Stamp)
Crumb Cake Card Stock – #120953
Cherry Cobbler Card Stock #119685
Very Vanilla Card Stock #101650
Neutrals Designer Paper Stack #117157
First Edition Designer Paper #121878
Full Heart Punch #119883
Basic Rhinestones #119246
Now for my Girls, I used the same stamp but softened it for a more feminine touch –
So you can see, this is a great set for more than just men to use – I like it as well! 
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by today!

Wonderful You

Wonderful You

Uber feminine and soft – I love this card – it is going to someone special – sure hope she likes it! Be sure to click on the photo to get a bigger view – lots of layers and detail on this card!

Here’s how I put this card together –

The Wonderful You stamp is from a set called Loving Thoughts. 

I used Very Vanilla and Pretty in Pink Card Stock and ink. 

The large heart is cut from the Hearts Framelits – this is a great set of framelits – it contains 6 different sized hearts – you can see the largest scalloped heart in this post HERE

Of course I had to use some flower trim flowers – I just gently patted them into my Pretty in Pink Ink – for a soft touch of color. 

The right edge of the card is embossed with the Delicate Designs embossing folders and my trusty Big Shot.    I used the Lacy Brocade embossing folder to emboss the Pretty in Pink heart.

Valentine Sampler

Valentine Sampler

When I saw this frame I knew it had to come home with me – even though I wasn’t sure what I would do with it!! Do you ever do that? 
When my downline got together last month, a few of us participated in a “mini square” swap – and I knew that these cute little squares would be perfect for this frame!!
Here’s a close up –
My daughter Sarah was home this week for a couple of days, and she loved this when she saw it – so I was thinking maybe I would make a couple of these for all of my girls for Valentine’s Day!   They are really fun to make!!

Blue Valentine!

Blue Valentine!

It’s been really really cold here in Ohio – I wanted to share this funny picture of Charlie with you – he crawled under a blanket and didn’t seem to want to get out – he wants to stay warm I guess!!

Those of you who know me, know that I am a cold weather girl – I love the cold and the snow! So for me, this is my kind of weather – Charlie, maybe not so much!! 

Anyway, I know you stopped by to see a card, not a picture of Charlie! 

A Valentine again, but actually, this could be used for so many different cards –  how about a birthday card for a friend, a thinking of you card, or a get well card or an anniversary card?  Hearts are sooooo versatile – they really aren’t just for Valentines!
The heart in this image is from the More Amore Specialty paper – but it is just flipped over – these hearts are laser cut – and real red and primrose pink on the front, but are white on the back which makes them even more versatile!! 
 Here’s a primrose petals heart in this post from yesterday,  and another  in this post

Swap Share!

Swap Share!

While I am at Leadership Conference, I will be swapping with other demonstrators there!  It’s a great way for us to share ideas – and I am sure I will be coming home with lots and lots of great ideas!

Here’s one of the swaps I made – using the MDS download released this week called Officially Awesome – it is item #133009. 

Don’t forget you can try MDS2 FREE for 30 days!  You can do this through my online store here

This is just one sample from the download – it actually includes 4 adorable little Valentines!  I cut each one to 4 x 5 1/4 and then mounted it on a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Primrose Petals card stock – added a little bling with a rhinestone brad and a little bit of gumball green ribbon to dress it up a bit!
Thanks for stopping by!
