Here is another valentine card I made the other day. This one features the new Stampin Up set that I just got. I think its called the bundle of love..or something like that. I got the papers, stamps, and punch with the set. I love, love the punch. It gives you three different heart sizes and its very sharp. Punches through the textured papers with no problems. I used my scallop circle punch and my round punch on the card also.
I added some white dots around my hearts at the top with my gelly roll pen. The big heart in the center was paper pieced with the decorative paper that came with the set.
Added some ink around the scallop edge and some red ribbon and that's it. Pretty easy to put together. Maybe I might actually get some valentines sent out this year...I always seem to forget.
Until next time...tata for now............

Before I start with my cards...does anyone know how to remove that header on my blog? I have tried and tried and no luck. I switched to a different background and now I'm stuck with the header of my old background.
Ok, first card...this is pretty cool...I was reading someones blog who mentioned that she downloaded some digi stamps..I have heard about digi scrapbooking things, but stamps? So, I checked it out..sure enough, you can buy digi stamps. Its actually kinda neat...I can buy digi stamps that will be on my computer forever and just print more out as I need them. Plus, I don't have to worry about storage..hows that for cool? If you want to check it out, here is the place..Pink Petticoat.
The little paper hearts on the card are from a new Stampin Up punch that I just purchased.
My next card is a retired stamp set from TAC. I used some more of my punched hearts on this card also. I don't think Ive made many cards with this set, so I thought I better get it out and dust it off..haha.

I thought I would give you two cards today...they are the same image but with different sentiments.
This is one of my newest Bella stamps. I am addicted to coffee so this is very fitting for me.
I colored my image with Prismacolor markers and Sharpies.
I used my Fiskars scallop punch on the edge of my pattern paper.
Pretty basic card to put together. I did get some Valentine cards done today, which I will post as soon as I have taken pictures and edited in Photoshop.....see you soon.....

This sentiment totally cracks me up. I found it while looking around at RubberNecker and couldn't resist buying it. The drinks pattern paper is something that I downloaded from a forum I use to go to. I need to figure out if I can change the color of it somehow. I downloaded it in green, but other colors would be nice too.
Colored my Bella with Prismacolor markers and BIC markers. Those tiny little sandles on her feet are impossible to color with my Prismacolor markers.
I finished some cards with the new Bellas that I have ordered and all I need to do is take some pictures of them. I will do that today and hopefully I will have a new Bella for you tomorrow.
We are in a deep freeze for the remainder of this week. I actually have to go out later today, which Im not looking forward to.
Until next time..tata for now

Another awesome stamp that I got from Rubbernecker stamps...I paper pieced my image with the background paper that I used on my card. I tend to go towards pinks, purples, and sometimes blues, so I'm trying to do cards in other colors besides my norm. I'm not sure where I got the sentiment "What's life without a little glamour!" but I love, love, love it. It fits the card so well. The rest of my images was colored with my Prismacolor markers. I did add some stickles to her shoes, shawl, and hat ribbon. The corners of the matted image and sentiment were punched with my Stampin Up punch.
Saw two movies this weekend...Friday night I saw "Bride Wars" very funny and I enjoyed it a lot. Its a great movie to take your girlfriends to. I happened to go with one of my girlfriends and we took her daughter and two of her friends...they all enjoyed it.
Second movie I saw was "Gran Torino" This was also a good movie. Clint Eastwood was spectacular in this movie. I went to this one with my hubby and two other couples from church.
Our furnace decided to break on Saturday or maybe Friday night sometime....should be fixed tomorrow sometime..thank goodness.
Over all my weekend was ok....other than a few family issues I'm dealing with.
I got some new Bella's and will be getting some cards done and posted for you.
Until then...tata for now......

Here is a cute card I made tonight along with many others..this card and more are for sale on my Etsy site if you are interested.
I colored her with Primacolor markers, added some "drink" decorative paper that I printed out. I found a cool green ribbon to add to the center of the card. I think the saying is the best part of this card...I got this sentiment from Rubbernecker...along with a few more cute sentiments and more glamour ladies.
Ive been working hard on making cards for you all to see...but life does tend to get in the way at times, so I might not be able to post every single day...but as time allows I will show you all my new cards that I have worked hard on.
