Hi girls! I acutally got done our projects early...For the first card we're using Veranda paper, "So Lucky" stamp set, Garden Green & Juniper inks and paper. (make a wish stem is from "Treasures"). The second card is using the "diaper/cup" fold technique and the newest thing I learned - emboss resist! So cool - your going to love it! We're using veranda paper for that too, and paper bloom & the "So Sweet" Stamp of the Month.

My valentines gift!!

The hubby and I had a deal to only make our gifts this saw what I did for him (I bought him cologne too!) Well, this is what he made for me! (I got chocolates too!)I only mentioned this in passing, and girls, he was listening!!! I got my very own light box for taking my pictures! I love this man!!

Valentine Countdown - Day 14

Well, this one was the big one. This gift was for my wonderful hubby. The one person in my life who really values all of my creative endeavors! I made this card for him, knowing he would love its "corniness". The box was done with much love...and at times, frustration.

I used: Card: Back Country CTMH paper, chipboard, "Backwoods" & "Bee Mine" stamp set. Box: Black, white & hollyhock CTMH paper. Silver & clear embossing, "Posterboard Alpha", "You Rock", "Fieldtrip Alpha" & "So Lucky" stamp sets. I'm sure I missed some stuff...

Valentines Countdown - Day 13

These candy sliders are for my kids. My daughter loved that book - I love you forever, so that one is her's and my son truly "rocks".

I used: CTMH cardstock & inks. "Love You Forever" & "You Rock" stamp sets.

So you missed the Cupcake workshop....

Well, we missed you at the workshop too! I forgot my camera - along with my brain - so the only picture I have is of my cupcake and card. Thanks Kim, Michele, Teresa and Edwina for coming out in the cold, snowy night to make cupcakes (and eat real ones too!).

Valentines Countdown - Day 12

Okay, so I "cheezed" it out a little bit, but I have a workshop tonight and I have a lot left to do! So, I made these quick treats for my school bus kids - they won't even notice the me! lol

Valentine Countdown - Day 11

Well, I can't really take all the credit for these. My 9 year old daughter came up with the idea when looking through a Oriental Trading catalog. She did the stamping, I did the cutting and some gluing and her Papi (my amazing DH) did the stapling! The blow-up guitars are really cute!
