Hey everyone! Hope your all having a great day! :) Well, for some reason I have 'Valentines' on my mind...guess I'm ready for hearts and chocolates?!! ;)

For this card, I used some older heart stamps that I have. I can't even remember where I bought them at, let alone the brand! Oh, that drives me crazy! However, there still usable! :)

I kept it simple, used a pink polka dot paper. Which I inked the edges of the paper with Rosebud ink by ColorBox. I stamped my little heart on first using black ink and used a 'mask' over it.( For the mask, I stamped my heart on a piece of scrap paper and then cut it out). After laying my mask on top of my little heart, I stamped on my big heart. Again, I used black ink but while it was still wet, I added a coating of black glitter ( I used sugar coating glitter in black beetle by Doodlebug Design Inc.). I wanted to add a little touch of something without making it too over the top. I then stamped on my love and added a couple clear rhinestones.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed what I shared with you! :) ;

Hello friend, Cheer up!

Hey everyone! I hope your all having a great week so far! :) So, fihnally after all this time of having no cards to is TWO little cards I made!! YAY!

I was out and about last week and picked up a couple 1$ stamps. I knew I would put them to use sooner or later. Lucky for me, it was SOONER rather than later!

Both cards are made with the same little clear stamp set. I used black ink and colored them with gel pens. I haven't used gels pens in quite awhile and figured "why not?". Also, the white on the balloon was used with a white gel pen (not sure if you can tell from the photos or not?). I kept it simple and thought they would be cute to hide in a lunchbox/slip into a mailbox, etc.

Thank you for stopping by and I will surely be back with more cards soon!! :)

I did get a new BIGKick, which I'm in love with. :) I look forward to sharing some new cards with you all! I know everyone is probably still trying to get back on track of things (as I am) and some may even be on vacation.....So, this was a short little "Hi, I'm still here and I will posting cards up soon" post. :)

Merry Christmas!

Hey everyone! Oh, has it been a long time (sure feels that way). Well, I'm still here, just losing my mind a little with everything going on! lol With school almost out, kids getting over being sick, trying to get christmas cards out, and somehow holding down the's no wonder I feel the way I do!!! I have a feeling though, once these holidays pass, things will get back to normal! :)

Well, I managed to get a picture of one of my cards to share! My lighting hasn't been the best lately. With it being overcast and raining off and on, it doesn't make it the easiest to take pictures. Not to mention my house lighting is all over as well....sometimes I just can't win! And out of all the places to take a picture, I ended up taking this one.....on top of my stove! lol I figured it's good enough for now, only place I could find with good enough lighting. ;)

I thank you for stopping by today! I will try and be back again before the holidays...if not, have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! =) t

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #30

Hey everyone, Happy Friday!! So, this weeks CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is #30 Tic Tac Toe! You had to choose a row of three design elements to use. The elements I chose to use were: Pink, Kraft, and Stripes.

I just kept my card simple and was trying to stay focused on what elements I needed to use. I used some paper that I had for quite sometime now and cut them to different lengths. I inked the edges of each strip (lightly). For my 'stripe' strip I used foam squares on the back to pop it up from the others. I added a few rhinestones and stamped on my 'Hello'.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your weekend! :)
