For someone special

With my hubby deployed, we have been sending him out care packages, and what's more exciting then to receive a package with a little love in it?

Of course this was his Valentine/February package, so instead of me making a card, I got my little guy (who is 15 months old today!) to work his magic....ok, I helped :)

Do you know how hard it is to get a one year old to hold his hand flat to make a print? It's crazy. These took a few attempts but I'm happy with the prints we got. I used the Heart to Heart punch...perfect! And I found a large heart on line that I printed onto Whisper White so that I could write inside it.

Inside the card I attached a couple pics of our little guy, so that Daddy would have them to place near his computer on the ship.

We've been busy around here....and even a bit sick. My teen has the tummy flu, I've had a chest is teething, we achieved our first molar this past month. So much getting in the way of my ink and rubber. Enjoy your weekend and thank you for coming by!

Our Birthentine

I was hoping to get this posted yesterday, but I guess the day got away from me....anywho....

Happy Birthentine's Day to my Mom! She's a Valentine baby, so she's always our Valentine.

She really enjoyed this card...maybe it was the chocolate ;)

It was fun to make. However, if you want to do the treat cup anywhere but an edge, be prepared to do some cutting with your knife. I ended up punching out the heart from my Full Heart punch and then tracing it and cutting that I could have it where I wanted it. Where there's a will....

I used Rose Red, Certainly Celery and Whisper White for this card. And the sentiment was just from Word and printed on cardstock. The grass is a Martha punch and I used the Sweetheart set from SU.

Thanks for taking a peek today! Have a great day!

Fabulous Bella

What a week...still stampin' and everything! I love this!

I pulled out a stack of images I received in an image swap and found this one. I have never done a Bella card, she's kinda cool. She's like Barbie, she can do anything.

This gal seems a bit country with her flower pot, so I decided that I would bling her up just a bit. I added the rhinestones and a bit of Iridescent Ice on her lashes, dress hem and shoes. Just enough to feel pretty as she goes to her friends house to present her with these flowers. What a fabulous friend she is.

Set: Bella, Oval All
Accessories: Perfect Plum, Regal Rose and white cardstocks, Slumber Party DP, Various inks with Aqua Painter, Iridescent Ice, rhinestones, Eyelet Edge Punch, Regal Rose & Eggplant Ribbons, Large & XL Oval Punches, sponge

I'm Stampin' I'm Stampin'!!

It's been such a long time since I've been stamping!! It feels so good, my fingers are full of Melon Mambo ink! I made a huge mess of my workspace and loved it! I had to pick it up to take the pictures...and I do try to when I finish something anyway....but oh what a mess I made ;)

I had no idea where I wanted to begin or go with my new toys. I got a couple sets in that were Valentine-y and I have my new punches and the Embosslit etc that I wanted to play with, so with it all laying in front of me...I was a bit overwhelmed and feeling like I had no mojo whatsoever...but in the end I'm pretty happy with my project to day.

When I had the colors all laid out in front of me, my teenage daughter came in the room ....they have had no school yet this week, all that snow from the weekend has kept them home. 8" would never have stopped school in Maine! anyway....she was shocked at how bright my selection was. I just felt like I needed something bright. It's begun raining...after all that snow, and should go into tomorrow....bright was called for!

I've used a bit of dimension here as well as much needed bling, the rhinestones were the best little touch to the card. I put my edge punch, my two heart punches, my embosslit and a new set to about getting it all in. Did I over-do it?

Thank you for taking a peek at my blog today :)
