I ran across this fun challenge today and made this card by using this utensil in the picture for my background. I added these hearts and my Sizzix mixer die. Making a handwritten sentiment that says, "Nothing' says lovin' like somethin' from the oven."

Krafty Chicks - 648 all occasions

This masculine card could be used for various celebrations, but added the hearts for it to perhaps be a Valentine.  I am adding this to the Krafty Chicks #648 challenge this week as my all occasions card. 
I also used it for an ABC challenge for H for hotwheels, and a challenge that had the criteria to be banners.  Trying hard to use up the hundreds of design papers I have in my stash! Loved the colors on this one and the words represented in it. The jeep is from Unity and the banner was made with a Stampabilities stamp.

House Mouse - Frame It


I just seem to have to reach for one of my little house mouse stamps every week for a stamping project because they are so darn cute and I know they delight anyone who receives a card with one of these precious images. I have been a huge fan for such a long time now. This week's card was made for this week's House Mouse Challenge with the option to use a frame. This die from Gina Marie Designs served as my frame, and the sentiments are from a Tim Holtz idea-logy sticker tablet. it has a row of xoxo and a sentiment that says "Do small things with great love."  I colored my image with copic makers. The card base is embossed with a Sizzix 3-D embossing folder and the embellishments are turquoise enamel dots.  You can see the details of the challenges and the great designs the design team made here at their challenge site:

My card is for the Tic Tac Toe challenge above. I did the vellum, heart, embossing row. 
I embossed the vellum with a Sizzix 3-D embossing folder, a die cut heart using a Gina Marie die, and punched flowers using some Martha Stewart flower and leaf punch. Tiny rhinestones were used for embellishments.

Send a smile to a kid - Valentines

I made this cute Valentine for the Send a Smile for kids challenge. This month's theme is love and Valentines. I love making Valentines even more than I like making Christmas cards. Maybe because it comes in a month that is not quite as hectic as December is. This is a simple card made with some design paper scraps, one of my house mouse stamps from my fun collection, and a sentiment from Sweet and Sassy stamps.

CAS on Friday

This is my CAS on Friday card for the insect challenge. I used a dragonfly stencil from "A Colorful Life." The arches are from a part of another stencil from "A colorful life." The stamps are from Stampendous. The stenciling was done with distress oxide ink, The stamping was done with black Versafine Clair. This is a one layer card, and quick and easy card to make. That makes it a CAS in my book.
