If you follow my links to other blogs, this card should look vaguely familiar. I saw this template today on one of those blogs and wanted to try it out as a valentine card. Still using up paper, as you can see. Also used hearts made by a My Favorite Things die. It has multiple hearts in all shapes and sizes so when you run your paper through, you get lots of hearts to use.
On a happy side note, I've finally figured out how to crop my pictures on my phone. Oh happy day!

Took the printed paper I found in my February drawer and punched lots of circles. Added the die and a bunch of sequins. The little pink heart was embossed and then die cut. I tried putting more die cut words, but it made it too busy. So, another one done!

Some of us have pets that are truly part of the family and when they die, it's a real grief. I have sent bereavement cards to many and each person has gotten back to me to tell me how much it meant to get a card. I'm trying to get ahead of the need for cards, so I made this one up to put in my stash.

Well we were in the heart of the storm that hit the east coast this weekend. What a good time to stamp! Started off with some Valentines. When I opened my February box there were printed papers that went together well to make this background. Stamp is by Inkadinkado.

Thankfully, I have finished making the sympathy cards I needed and can move on to another topic. Been needing some congratulation cards. This one was made very simply so it could be used for a man if needed. If it needs to be for a woman, think all it needs is a white paper flower to be added.

This card is for a the mother of a friend. The words didn't show up well in the picture, but actually stamped out just fine. The color matches the card. People often tell me they find sympathy cards hard to do. I don't find that is a problem for me. My goal is to keep the card pretty simple. I have found some good sympathy sayings for the inside of cards and that helps too.

Here is a good one for using up some paper scraps. A small pearl was added to each heart. This would need some padding if sent through the mail. Sure is a cold day today. A good day for stamping! Hope to share some results with you from what I create today.

Been a busy week between teaching a class and getting ready for another one Saturday This is a new card added to Winterscapes. Wanted to show how you can do a winter class without using any white. It's hard to see, but stickles was added to the trees which really makes them sparkle.

It's been really busy here but I swore I would get some Christmas cards done each month. I'm bursting with joy that I got started with this card! As the tortoise said, "Slow and steady always does it." The background stamp is by Memory Box.

This new year is really a time of big change for some folks I know who started the year off by retiring. Two tags were colored with Viva Décor 3-D paint. Images were stamped on with Stazon. The the card was dry embossed with some folders. Words are a die by Hero Arts.

Yea! Back in action! Starting off with a wonderful die from My Favorite Things. Behind the die cut paper is some pretty printed paper by Graphic 45. Then a few paper flowers were added to the center and held together with a brad. Yep, still dealing with January birthdays.

Well, just when you think you can breath a sigh of relief that all your Christmas cards are done, along comes an early January birthday! Went super simple with this card. Rather than emboss the snowman, I debossed it. Then all around on the blue card white pigment ink was smudged on. Then the words and snowflakes were stamped using "Faded jeans" distress pad. Doing a simple card means it will arrive on time!
