I have been so busy with work and being the Registration Director of our sons' football program, I haven't had time to make Valentines. My boys had a friend sleepover tonight, so I was able to just in time. My boys now request what they want their cards to include. Mikey asked for a penguin and a monkey on his while Tommy asked for a penguin and snow. Frank...he could care less what is on his.
For Mikey's card I used a changito monkey and a penguin from Inkadinkado with Really Red paper and TAC pattern paper. For Tommy's I used the same Inkadinkado penguin with a snowflake cuttlebugges background that didn't show up very well. They both have stickles all over them for snow. I used a dollar set for Frank's. It's simple, but it is very Frank. I hope you all got your valentine's made way before I did!

This card took me forever to make. I made for my neighbor's baby shower. We made her invitations, so the polka dot paper is from that. Their theme is animals, and I had these cute stickers. I never use stickers, but I kind of liked it. It took so long because I wanted all the colors to match perfectly. I used DCWV glitter paper, certainly celery, barely banana, and almost amethyst CS. The ribbon is from the shower invite. The drops are from my friend Chris. The stickers are by Sandy Lion, I think. Th one thing I stamped is from a Studio G Dollar set.
I really have been crafting. This is a card I made for a neighbor who had a grandmother pass away. I used Bordering Blue and Apricot CS, Inkadinkado Butterfly stamp heat embossed on vellum. Then I sponged Bordering Blue on top of the butterfly. I used my old scalloped scissors to cut the edge of the vellum and added teeny tiny pearls I had in my embellishment box. The ribbon is from a scrap bag.
