WOW! Monday already!Where do the days go?? Today I am sharing a card done for the Just us Girls sketch #19 
This is the sketch: 
This is my card:

I have to tell you...I really loved this sketch! really something different for me :) The cute stamp is from a Christmas set by Taylored Expressions. Love that I can us it after Christmas! All the papers are from PTI. The Ribbon is also PTI, the stripes I made with scraps....I keep every little piece! The Charm is from Michaels...I am really loving using those! The "Love" I stamped with a set from TT. You can't see but I used a bit of stickles on the tiny birdy wings. that's it for this one, & that's it for this weekends crafting :( I am off  to work 10 hour days for the next 4 days...my normal work week!

I'm back with post #2 for today. This one is a valentine for my sweet hubby ;)  And a participation in the CPS sketch. This weeks sponsor PTI. Also OCC which is to create a male valentine card
This is this weeks sketch:
Here is my funny little card:

The cardstock is craft, cream & red from PTI. The image I got last year after Valentines day so wanted to be sure to use it this year. It is from Great Impressions. I colored my image with Copics. The phrases are from last years PTI set, Love songs.The little punched out hearts were done with a MS punch. I just used scraps of red paper as my background. Of course the large heart is a nestie. That is it!! soooo easy!!
Now time to get the brats on the grill...so they will be done before half time!! Be back again later!!


Caedvarks "get published " challenge

Hey! Happy super bowl Sunday!! I got up early today to work on a few challenges/Valentine cards. It seems like a long time since I was able to play in my craft room. So far I have 3 cards to share with you today :) I will only be posting one at a time....just the way I like to do it ;) This is my first one....a beautiful Wedding card for the Cardvarks "get published" challenge for CARDS Magazine. Now don't get me wrong...I don't expect to have this published, sooooo many other beauties!!! Just wanted to play along anyway!! I have been trying  to step outside my box lately with some new patterned papers & different style & just not loving it...so today back to my same old plain & simple style...the style I feel most comfy with :)
This is my card:

The paper is from my stash...The stamp set is JRS (don't you just love it) loving the square ones!!  I used black embossing powder & used a pink copic marker for a hit of pink in the heart. PTI black paper & my favorite michaels ribbon for the yummie bow!! My new blog friend Karylon has me hooked on charms now!! Enabler!!! The little heart charm I got at Michaels by blue moon. It is hard to see but I also added tiny pink rhinestones to my image. I hope you all get a chance to play along with this one!! No sketch or color combo...Just a wedding theme & your own imagination!!! I'll be back later with another post! :)
