I'm going to end January on a love note and share this card I made for Valentine's day.  It would also be great for an anniversary. 

All the papers are from DCWV La Creme stack.  The image is cut from the Sweethearts cricut cart at 3 1/2 inches.  The flowers are from SU's set Fabulous Florets that I stamped on some polka  dot paper and cut out.  The flourish/leaves behind the flowers are from the same set that I stamped with stazon black and cut out.  Here's a peek at the inside.

I used the scraps to decorate the inside and used the sentiment from Verve's set Love Notes, punched it out with SU's designer label punch.  Thanks for looking.

The One and Only

How about a masculine card for today.  Who doesn't love a cowboy, there's just something about their rough, rugged nature. Oh wait I'm supposed to be talking about a card here. Now the one thing I'm not sure about on this card is the bow.  It was a last minute thought and is it too much of a feminine touch for a masculine card? 

The papers are My Minds Eye and I forget now where I got this sketch from but I really like it for a masculine card with the sharp edges.  The stamp and sentiment are from SU's Bronc Buster set.  I punched out just a small piece of the sentiment to use with the window word punch and layered it with the modern label punch also from SU.  So what's your thoughts on the bow?

Haven't I Seen You Somewhere Before

This card was made to use up scraps from the cards I made with the sewing set that you can see HERE
Its a top fold card with 1 1/2 inches cut off the front.  The embossing on the side is a cuttlebug edge folder.  The flowers are a dollar stamp from Joann's and I embossed the black layer with Tim Holtz Damask folder.

I colored the image with SU markers.  Just something quick and easy, just like this post.  Thanks for stopping and I always enjoy reading your comments.  Have a wonderful day.

Aviary Triple Play

So for my second post of the new year I'm going to share 3 cards with you all done with SU's Aviary set.  I have to say this set grew on me to the point I had to order it. 
Hello Friend ... For this card I used DCWV papers from the All Dressed Up stack and SU's scallop trim border punch, which I kind of went a little crazy with using it on 2 edges.

A little pink birdie told me ... This card also used DCWV papers from the same stack and again with the scallop trim border punch.  I think the cage on this one is too small.  I should have used the larger one.

So Tweet ... For this card I used SU's tulip border folder and Verve's Classy Label die.  The glitzy paper is DCWV Linen Closet stack. The layout is a Verve layout.  The sentiment is a clear dollar stamp and I added the little bit of lace trim and some leftover flowers I had.  This is my favorite of the 3
Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed today's cards.

Happy New Year!  Hope your new year is off to a great start.  I don't make resolutions because I really never keep them longer than a couple months.  I've tried numerous times and decided to give myself a break and just be.  So anyway on to what inspired this card today.  My husband and I have had our share of plumbing nightmares the past year.  Have you seen the movie the Money Pit with Tom Hanks and Shelly Long where she fills the bathtub with water and it falls through the ceiling.  Well our tub didn't come through our ceiling but all the bath water did and right into the kitchen when the pipe broke.  UGH!  So this card I made for myself.  Its my therapy card LOL.  Because 2012 has to be better than the end of 2011.

The tub was cut from Kate's ABC's cut at 4 inches I think.  The papers are from My Minds Eye.  The sentiment is from Verve, punched out with SU's designer label punch.  So if you had a trying 2011 just RELAX like I'm going to because 2012 has to have some sunshine for you.
