Special friends, special moments.

Made another card using an Ellzybells image. It looks like a Valentine's card but I used a non-Valentine sentiment so I could use it any time. :) I was supposed to enter this in the sketch challenge here but I finished the card in time but forgot when the deadline was. oops! I still wanted to share it anyway. 

Hope you all had a great weekend...enjoy the last day of January!

Happy happy holidays!

Hello there! I made my 2nd Christmas card for the year! :) Trying to make some now while I have time...things might come up later and then I will get behind! :) I used a stamp from Ellzybells. I was so sad when the store shut down! I love bears...or anything cute for that matter. DP is from Michael's.

You're Special!

Finally got to make a card using one of Sweet November's Fairwee stamps! They are super cute! And I thought she would be good for a circle shaped card, plus I haven't made too many shaped cards in awhile! I added a brad at the top so you can just slide the card. 

Thanks for visiting me today!

You make my little heart happy!

I made another Valentine's card. The funny thing is I don't send out too many Vday cards but it's so fun to make! But I think it could be used for "just because" too! First time using this Pure Innocence image and I'm not sure what I was thinking drawing in the small black lines by the hearts! I think I made it worse! (Trying to make some effects! haha.) Tried to make it a little non-traditional by adding yellow. 

Challenge: Simon Says Stamp

Thanks for your visit!! 

Sending You Lots of Hugs

Made a card with this Pure Innocence image for the first time. I finally remembered to participate in the challenge at the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club
Thanks for visiting and hope you had a great weekend!

Dandelion Valentine

Made a simple Valentine's card using  a new image by Dandelion Designs. I actually cheated a little and stamped him on the beige paper so I did not color him! :) And the background technique is cased from the January 2012 issue of the CardMaker magazine. Love all their ideas! 

Thanks for your visit and TGIF! (ooh, I just realized it's Friday the 13th!)

Life is sweet, with you in it...

Tried a new color combo...purple and turquoise. Purple is my favorite color but is it just me or is it hard to find purple DP? Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough. I love Lollipop Anya, yet I think this is only my second card with her!! That's what happens when you have too many stamps! :( 

Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments!

If I haven't said before, I love fruits with faces! :) Or actually anything that usually doesn't have faces normally! They are just really cute to me! Sadly, this is my first time using these images by Two Scoops Rice Designs. I love their images too...btw, does anyone know about this company? I believe the shop site shut down last year and I haven't heard any word on the blog either. Very sad! 
I put glossy accents on the fruits to add some dimension. 

Challenge: Clean & Simple

Thanks for your visit today! 

Happy New Year!

Hello! Today is Lollipop Craft's first day back from break!  The theme is "new"- new technique, new supplies, etc. or "new" in general - new year, new baby, etc. I chose new year and I used my new stamp I got from My Favorite Things! I tried to do a silver/gray and purple color combo. Used the sketch from here.

Hope you will join us in our challenge this week! Please stop by and check out the rest of the DT creations here!
Best wishes all to a great 2012!
