Valentine for Hubby

Inside of card:

Just a simple card for my Hubby for Valentine's Day. I just love this "Henry Hugging Heart" image from Whiff of Joy stamps. The little "You Have My Heart" sentiment is from a Studio G set and the inside sentiment is from a Clings set by Hero Arts called "Valentine Sayings".

Valentine for my Sister

Inside of card:

My youngest sister and I both enjoy dark chocolate, so every occasion is a reason to send some to each other. We are lucky here in Madison, WI, to have 3 of the countries top chocolatiers. Anyway, I'm always looking for stamps about chocolate and this darling stamp set, called "A Box of Love" is from MFT (My Favorite Stamps). The background papers are in a dark chocolate color. I had fun making this card. Thanks for peeking in and checking it out.

Valentine for Grandson

Here's this year's Valentine's card for our grandson, Max. The image is a free download from Dustin Pike. Max loves all things dragons and dinasaurs.

Friend Valentine Birthday Card

Inside of card:

One of my very good friends was a Valentine's baby. It's easy to tell because she's one of the sweetest people I know. This is her Valentine/Birthday card for 2011. I've also attached a photo of the inside of the card.

Two Xmas Gift Tags

I was inspired to make these cards when I saw this post on Vicki Burdick's blog. I love all of Vicki's creations.

Every year I try to come up with something new for my gift card recipients. These were a lot of fun and I was pleased with how they turned out. Thanks so much for the inspiration Vicki!

A couple of final 2010 Xmas cards

Here are some of the final Xmas cards that I did and didn't get posted before year end. I first saw this really cute image on one of my favorite blogs ( Debby is an amazing card crafter and a real inspiration.

The image is Penny Black and I had to go on EBAY to find it, as it is an older stamp set. The second card was done for my daughter-in-law, who loves snow and winter. I think this image is perfect for a snow-lover.

I'm really loving the circle lacy nestabilities. They will be a favorite for my cards going forward. Please contact me if you want specific information about any other products used for these cards.

Thanks for stopping by.
