Sending Hedgehugs

Hello all, I'm back, sharing another set of cards that I sent in for the Caring Hearts Card Drive for the St. Jude's Children's Hospitals. For these cards I used a super cute Lawn Fawn stamp set and a Cosmo Cricket and Dear Lizzy's Neapolitan 6x6 patterned paper pads. Like the previous cards, I kept embellishments to a minimum so that nothing can get ripped off and choke on anything. I was not in the mood for coloring with my Spectrum Noir markers and instead broke out an old set of colored pencils.

Valentines Galore!!!!!

Hello All, I'm back with a few more Valentine's Day cards that I sent out for the St. Jude's Hospital Caring Hearts Card Drive (click the heart banner on the right for more information). For these cards I used Mama Elephant Honey Boney set along with some miscellaneous DCWV papers and a few other pattern papers that I'm not sure of the manufacturer for. I finished several of the cards off with some enamel dots.

Hello Valentine!

It's a new year and with the new year I thought I would try to be better about posting things to this here poor little blog. :) Every year I participate in a Valentine's Day card drive for St. Jude's Hospital (click on heart icon in right panel for more details). I just sent in my package to Winter Sim's the card drive coordinator and thought that I would share a few of those cards. For these cards I used a Cosmo Cricket 6x6 paper pad and a super cute Valentine's stamp set from Mama Elephant. The cards need to be as gender neutral as possible with nothing that can be pulled off of the card and be a choking hazard so I tried to keep the cards as bright and cheerful as possible and I absolutely loved these Panda Bear stamps!

Happy New Year All! I hope that you all had a very blessed Christmas and New Year with your families. I just thought I would start off this new year by sharing some projects I have been working on to add to my Etsy Shop. I found some 5x7 clear acrylic frames on sale at Michaels a few weeks ago and wanted to try creating something that had a 2015 calendar, as well as sticky notes. I had a very feminine paper collection that my mom had sent me from my birthday so I thought I would pull that collection out to work with. I am pretty happy with my results. All calendar/sticky note sets come with a small pen or pencil to make notes with.
