Two cards, one stamp and some cool news!


Hi blog readers! Hope you're having a great Sunday evening! I wanted to stop in to share two cards I made over the weekend. The image is a cute little groundhog from Meljen's Designs. Now I realize that Groundhog's Day has come and gone, but he was so cute, I didn't want to wait until next year to use this stamp.  Here's a closer look:


The first one is a Valentine's card using paper from Carta Bella's Devoted paper set. I don't have a pic here of the inside, but the whole sentiment says: I really DIG you...will you be my Valentine? The second one is an all-purpose card:


The paper here was from a DCWV paper stack! Love using that paper from my stash! As you probably can tell, the colors used on the groundhog here are different than what I used on the first card, plus I gave him his teeth back, lol. But I wanted him to stand out more from the soil around him, so I had to go with my "tans" then deepen the color. I tell ya, I don't know how you copic pros out there do it, lol

I love coming up with different uses and looks with my craft stuff and stamps, so I hope to make this a monthly feature! Let me know what you think! We'll see how it goes! Okay, so on to my cool news...I entered my Mimi Breast Cancer Awareness card (posted here) into the Lesia's 2012 Year in Review challenge over on Mema's Crafts and won! The prize was a gift certificate to Whimsy Stamps! So stop in and check out Mema's craft challenges...in fact she has a cool one going on right now through the end of the month! Plus, she loves it when new readers stop by!

Speaking of stopping by, thank you for stopping by here today!
...And That's All She Wrote!
