Sisterly Friendship

I'd like to share a card with you tonight that I made for one of my daughters for Valentine's Day. My thought was that it was to portray her and her sister and the friendship and memories they share. I cropped an adorable image from the Thank Heaven for Little Girls plate by The Stampsmith. I feel bad for cropping one of the sweet little girls out of the picture, but it wouldn't have made sense for the card if there was three girls in it. lol :) The sentiments, "Friendship, Happiness, Memories & Love are all from the Say it With Flair plate by The Stampsmith, as well.

I used the current MojoMonday sketch for my creation, highlighting the curve with a bit of flourished bling.

Check back tomorrow for the theme of our next challenge over at The Stampsmith Challenge!

Happy Birthday, Jim!

I made this card for my hubby, Jim, for his birthday next week. I always have a hard time with masculine cards, but I kinda like how this one turned out. I stamped the old pocket watch first, and then broke up the Happy Birthday sentiment, to emboss it. I thought the pocket watch ink was dry. But, apparently it wasn't since when I added the embossing powder, it stuck to it, as well. It makes it a bit difficult to read the sentiment, but you get the point and I think I like it like this even better than my original plan. I love this photostamp from The Mountains plate by The Stampsmith. You can find it under Landscapes on the online shop.

TSC6: Love

I'm sharing a Valentine's Card tonight in keeping with our newest challenge over at The Stampsmith Challenge blog. I used a sweet photostamp from the Darling Boys plate by The Stampsmith. I'm calling this one 'Young Love.' Is this little couple adorable, or what?! :)

Our current challenge is Love (Marriage, Valentine, love for a pet, love for a child.) For this challenge, we do ask that you use at least one stamp from The Stampsmith for your creation. I hope you decide to come join us! Until then, please pop on over to see the creations from the rest of the Design Team.

Baby Boy Tag Book

I attended a class last Friday at one of our local stamp stores and we made this sweet little Tag Book. I was actually filling in for my my friend, Kim, who couldn't make it to the class. She had signed up to make a little boy kit to hold some pics of her new little grandson. So, since she couldn't make it, I attended the class to make the project just for fun and I'm giving my tag book to her. Being an addicted blogger, I told her I just needed to take a picture of it first, then she could have it! lol :)

Here's a few different shots with the tags in and taken out.
