Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone ... this was a winning entry in CAS on Sunday and I just fell in love with it and had to give it a whirl ... designed by Betty ... it was fun to recreate.
I found that when I  used the liquid glue to attach the box, it began to warp on me so I used scor tape to secure the box to the card.  A gift card fits perfectly in there and there's one for each of the crew.

Singles ...

All the single layers (All the single layers)
All the single layers (All the single layers)
All the single layers (All the single layers)
All the single layers
Now put your hands up

Now put your hands up if they stress you out!  LOL! I have no clue as to why either.  I just draw a blank.  I sit there in my goodies and look and look and look and I just don't see it.  It takes so long to work it through ... whew!
So this is black card stock with an Hero Arts stamp for the G Clef and a Fiskars stamp for the sentiment.  Embossed in white ... for a friend that is stuck in all this snow.
I'm posting this in Less is More One Layer Week #158
 Thanks for taking a peek.  Have a great week.

Hearts around ....

Making this card for a friend that is going into surgery this weekend ... hoping to cheer her up and know that we're all thinking of her.
Using recollections printed papers and card stock ... embossed using my cuttlebug and the hearts cut with Plantin Schoolbook.  Sentiment stamped with Stazon Ink.
Posting this in FCCB #197 I Heart You and also in  CAS on Sunday #26 In the Rounds.

Thanks bunches .... Have an awesome day

Baby Book

I finally did it.  I created my first Baby Book and this one is heading out as a gift for my nephew and niece in law,  who is expecting any minute now.  The book itself is made of chip board and the printed papers are all from 'mambi sheets' Baby Boy and the solids are Recollections card stock.  I also grabbed some puffy embellishments from Recollections and of course used my Cricut.  I am just super excited at how it came out.
There are 6 pages in the book itself and each page as 7 areas where there is either a photo mat or a place to journal. 

I can't wait to get this in the mail for them.  Hopefully they'll arrive at the same time.  
Thanks for looking.

Follow your dreams ....

This one is for my daughter, who is overseas performing and also for Less is More who is celebrating their 3rd birthday.  The challenge for the week is rainbow.  I found the rainbow musical ribbon in my ribbon drawer and pulled my inspiration from that.   The paper is Recollections and I embossed the music onto white card stock.   The stars are punched from paint chips.  This one is going in the mail on Monday!
A perfect pick me up for the both of us.  Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Super Bowl.  May your team win!
