Here is a birthday card to share with you. Love the little bit of embossing, it looks like lizard skin. This cute sentiment came with the lizard stamp. 'Age is only a number...' and on the inside 'mine in UNLISTED'.
Here is the sketch.

I had to try out my new stamp. Love everything in it. The script, flowers and butterflies. I stamped it a second time on blue cardstock with versa ink, and embossed with white. Then cut it out. Mounted it over the original on the stamped image, leaving one wing unattached so it will stand up. The strips in the background were stamped with a script stamp in dark blue ink.
Here is the sketch.

I started with the stamped image. This is one I picked up at the Garage Sale last weekend. I colored it with regular pencil crayons. Cut it out and stamped the sentiment. Mounted it on foam dots to give the card some dimention. On the card I used versa mark to stamp the feathers. I forgot how nice and suttle the feathers make for a background. I haven't used them for awhile.
Hope to get more done this weekend. My dad placed an order for a few, seems he's running out of his stash.

On this card the hearts were stamped with versa mark and then rubbed with pearl x. Held in the right light it sparkles. Because the pearl x stained the white paper around the hearts I inked it with green distress ink. Added a few pearls and sentiment, and mounted onto a raspberry card.
Day off tomorrow and heading into the Craft Nook. They are having a Garage Sale. You can rent a basket, and take in your unwanted stash to sell. Me, just going to see if there is anything that could be wanted stash for me.

Day off today, and after going back to bed for a bit after getting the kids off, I relaxed at the craft table. I did a bit of paper piecing with this stamp. I thought these soft pastel flowers were perfect for my bug car. The green background is from a metal spellbinders embossing sheet. I layed it on white paper and inked with distress ink overtop. A cute card for your little sweetie on valentines.
Enjoy the day

I had fun with this card. I started out to be a quick and simple card. The background was stamped with versa mark and heat embossed with pink onto pink paper. I colored in the hearts with a red sakura pen. The sweet love stamp was stamped first on white and then onto pink and the centre cut out and glued to the white. The hearts I stamped onto pink, white, and red. And paper pieced the image. Coloring the dots on the bow with a red sakura pen. The whole thing was matted onto red.

Here we are mid afternoon. All is quiet upstairs. The kids are home today. Teachers have the day to themselves to write report cards. Sam has a friend over, they are watching a movie. After spending hours outside playing on the sand hill. But as Sam puts it, it's not sand right now. The joy of sliding down the hill, trudging back to the top just to do it again and again. While the kids were playing I have managed to finish the little guys valentines. What a chore glueing on all those faces. It's not a wonder he stopped halfway through.
Now that my table is clear of those I can get back to my valentines. I need to sell alot to cover the amount I spent last night at an Undercoverwear Party. It was such a blast.
Well here's a look at the finished product. Enough for the little guys class, as well as some extras for cupid to drop off at the Retirement Home.
