Home Sweet Home

Hello Friends!  I have a couple of cards to show you today.  I used dies from the Valentine release.  My first card was made with Kitty in Chair die.  Even though it was released with the Valentines, by changing the colors it can be for any occasion.  I made a living room scene and added the sentiment to the picture frame hanging on the wall.    I tend to like to make scenes.  I hope you aren't getting bored with them.

I used the Love Shack die to make my next card.  I love house dies and this one is a real cutie.  It doesn't have to be made into a Valentine.  There are so many cute dies in the store!  I hope you will take the time to have a look in the store.

I cut the house from white cardstock and  colored the images with my copics.  Have a GREAT day!

Hugs and smiles,

Peachy Keen Pocket Challenge 01

Hello Everyone!  I am trying to sneak this in just under the wire.  Hope I make it.  My camera is trying to import the photo as I type.  I made a pocket card and a little pocket that can hold a little treat.  Whew!  I just posted it with 7 minutes to spare.

I used the new PK- 295 Cupid's Sting.  I sure had fun coloring up these two little cuties!  The card on the left has a pocket made from hearts.  I mounted the cupids onto white chipboard so they are sturdier in case the little girls want to wear them as necklaces.  They would make cute refrigerator magnets too!

Thanks for the fun challenge Peachy Keen and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and smiles,

Sending Love

Good morning friends,

Today's card features one of the new Valentine release dies called Kitty Love Mail.  Lots of really cute dies from this release, so I hope you will go take a peek.  I cut the pieces from white cardstock and colored them with Copics.  Lately I have been liking more clean and simple cards.  I placed the die cuts directly onto the card.  I made a sun from twine and also tied some twine with a bow to the card.

So what do you think?  Do you like clean and simple or do you like to see more layers?  Enjoy the rest of your week.

Hugs and smiles,

Playing With My New Peachy Keen Stamps

I have a couple of cards to share with you today using my new Peachy Keen Stamps.  I used the small Angel from the Stamp of the Month club.  This is a great set with several images and face stamps on an 8 1/2" by 11" sheet.  Have you heard about the new Stamp of the Month Club?  You can read all about it here.  I signed up for it.  I think it will be lots of FUN!  Peachy Keen has lots of new changes for 2012 and the new and senior Design Team is fabulous!  I hope to join in on as many challenges as I can.  My oldest son is getting married on Feb. 11 so my posts may be few and far between until after the wedding.

I colored this sweet little Angel with my Copics and as you can see, used lots of polka dots in my design.  My second card was made with another newly released stamp set that you can find here.  PK-10 Colby and Jack Cheeseheads.  Could these stamps get any CUTER??  Kathy you ROCK!!

They were also colored with Copics and I added some glittery snow for those cold WI winters.  I am linking this to the Peachy Keen Kick Off Linky Party.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs and smiles,

What's Cookin'?

Good Morning Friends!  The winter has been kind of strange here this season.  Still no snow.  I do like the four seasons and wouldn't mind having a little snow.  One thing that hasn't changed with the cooler temperatures is my love of soup, and the comfort it brings on a cold winter day.

 For my card today I used the Pine Tree Forest, the 3x3 Campfire, and the 4x6 Stockpot and Veggies die.   The Stock Pot and Campfire were cut from white cardstock and colored with copics.  The trees were cut from patterned paper.  The sentiment is a Unity stamp.  You could tuck a favorite soup recipe inside this card and send it to a friend.  My husband makes some really yummy soups too!  Last week he made a very tasty bean soup with ham.  Have a great weekend!

Hugs and smiles,
