Woo Hoo!

If you look down a few posts, you'll see the card I made for the Simon Says challenge for Kings and Queens card.  I made the top three!  So fun!!  I earned a top 3 blinkie that I put on my sidebar!  Thanks to the Simon Says team for picking my card.

MFT Challenge card

I thought it was time to join in a few challenges and get the creative juices flowing.  Here is a card for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge.  I only own one set from MFT .......a barnyard set that is probably retired by now!  LOL   I hope you enjoy this valentine.  The decorated paper was a little bright for the card so I toned it down by stamping the heart all over it.   I used a curled corner and cuttlebug highlights techniques (from the Technique Junkie newsletter of course!)

Whole lotta love word cards

Splitcoaststampers posted a tutorial for a LOVE word card.  I loved it so much that I thought i would make a number of them for my hubby to take to work.  I also didn't want to cut each by hand so I made a cut file for the pieces.  They aren't exactly like the original on the tutorial but that's okay!  Each one is different.  I have two I didn't get to.......they are traditional red/white format.    Hope you enjoy.  Unfortunately the purple one with the butterfly just would not photo well....IRL the colors are deep and right on the card and the butterfly.

more zen

Here is a little more Zen stamping for you to see!  This darling image is from Our Craft Lounge.  I think they are retiring it or it is just retired.  I colored everything with copics and used my multiliner for the zentangle part.  This is just one of the fun techniques in the current TJ newsletter.

Zen Stamping

Here is a wonderful technique from the Feb 2012 issue of the TJ newsletter.  It is called Zen Stamping and it was really fun to do.  I used a Hambo Valentine basket that had open hearts.  After Zantangling the hearts, I shaded them with copic marker.  Enjoy!
