Valentine's Love

With Valentine's day tomorrow, I found a challenge on the My Mind's Eye blog that was perfect to get my mojo going on the perfect Valentine's Card. The best part was I had the perfect paper from MME I could use to get the job done!
This was the sketch they provided as the challenge:
With this sketch as my starting point here is the beautiful card I made for my Valentine.

I couldn't stop using this paper on just this card... so I decorated this little white mailbox from the $1 spot at target. I colored portions of the mailbox using Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks.

Thank you for looking! And have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Cricut Circle February Banner Challenge

I think it's time to bring back the good old scrappy blog... take a peak at all of my scrappy creations and scrappy happenings!This month the Cricut Circle is having a challenge for making a banner. As luck has it, I designed this wonderful banner that was a make and take at the Urban Escapes Retreat January 21-23, 2011 in Las Vegas. The banner was created using papers from Creative Imaginations, Prima, and American Crafts. It was embellished with flowers from Prima, and from the LA Garment District. The pink glitter ribbon was from Michael's Christmas ribbons, and the pearl bling from Want2Scrap. I used a variety of cartridges to cut the butter flies, bicycle, dress form, scallop circle, and letters.
