Sending Love

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: "Anything Goes."


The trail of paw prints is actually all one stamp but the MISTI and some masking made it fairly simple to stamp them in a rainbow of colors. The little hearts were die-cut from metallic gold cardstock---gotta have just a few touches of sparkle and shine (*wink).

Thanks for visiting!

Hope you're having a wonderful week!!!

Happy Birthday

Popping in quickly today to share a card I made using the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches Challenge :)

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:

This sketch is a great way to make use of the loads of patterned paper I have been hoarding in my stash. I cut these from an oldie but goodie 6x6 patterned paper pad from My Mind's Eye called "Oxford Lane." LOVE the color combo of navy, green, yellow and a touch of aqua. Super fun!!!

I'll be snail mailing this one to my dad for his upcoming March birthday :) I hope he likes it!

Thanks for visiting!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

Love You Watts

Today I'm playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Fun With Dies :)

I needed to make some Valentines for my niece and my grandma, and I remembered this cute lightbulb die set that I believe came as a freebie with one of my Taylored Expressions orders a while back. I hadn't used it yet and thought it would be fun to pair it up with a punny sentiment and create a couple of Valentine's Day cards.

Here's what I came up with:

I added some sparkle to the filaments with a Glitter Gloss Aqua Shimmer Pen (Nuvo). I LOVE how they glisten!

I had so much fun making these cards and hope that my niece and my grandma get a kick out of them!!!

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy your weekend!!!
