Here's a valentine's day card for ya. What do you think? :) I thought this card was cute when I saw it on Splitcoaststampers.com, but didn't yet have an occasion to make it for! It was super easy, and fun. I used Patterned paper from a target pack (maybe 1 or 2 years ago?), white rick rack, and flower gem, and some target $1 spot ribbon.
I have a four day weekend! Life was good to me this week, not bringing me anything stressful (other than some rowdy kids on our Valentine party day). I have a workshop coming up at the end of the month. I got to order some new SU goodies! My hostess wanted to "go green!" and had a bunch of Altoid tins. This is what I came up with. The paper is Parisian Breeze. I used chocolate chip ribbon and ink. The petals are from Pick a Petal (i cut the doodle petal down to the inside line). The button is from Button Latte with linen thread tied through. I used sticky strip on the bottom strip of paper and the paper on the top and inside. Glue dots are holding on the petals, button, and ribbon. Enjoy!

Happy February, though the groundhog saw his shadow, and my year is still not going very nicely. Hopefully yours is better! I made this card for a splitcoaststampers.com card sketch last week, but never got around to posting it. So here's what I made. I am trying to use stamp sets that I haven't inked up, and this is one I had to have at the LAST Stampin Up catalog preview (not the newest one!). I love this bunny, and the birdie that is with it. I'm trying to play with my nesties more too...
Hopefully the groundhog was wrong, and just cranky from waking up early wanting to go back in his hole to sleep. I am ready for spring!
