Happy Valentine's Day

Good morning friends!
It has been a warm but also cold and blustery weekend.
We have had rain/freezing rain, snow, wind and melting.

What stamp am I highlight for The Project Bin today?
I am sharing with you In My Heart
It has  two dies
and seven stamps.

My card today is clean and simple
The heart was cut our with our heart
shape die and then stamped the
solid pink heart through the die cut
hole. After that, I took the
Happy Valentine's Day stamp
and stamped on top.

The color pink is used on this card
as it is my grandma's favorite color.

I then took the top panel
with the die cut heart shape 
and embossed it with an
embossing folder from
Stampin' Up.

I love the effects of the folder and started
adding a few pearls but before I new it
the whole panel was covered with bling.
Hopefully it isn't too much.

I love this time of year
as it is another reason to celebrate our
loved ones with cards or crafts.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Fashionable Stamping Challenge - #143 - Anything Goes
Stamping Sensations - Fabulously Feminine

Each week day my fabulous team mates have creations
that are sure to inspire.

Have a really blessed day

I love you smore and smore

 Happy Monday!
How was your weekend? My weekend was good,
I got to go in and spend some more time with dad and mom.
We had KFC out of the box and dad called it a picnic.
It was fun watching curling and figure skating together which was really nice,
while my mom went to see her mom.

The stamp set that I am sharing with you today is
 How cute are the smores
and that sentiment just makes me smile.
It is a perfect honest anytime of year but
I think it is awesome for valentines day.
The smores are colored using my Copic Markers
The card has a banner embossed with the wood folder
that made me think of the great outdoors.
There are two score lines
and then this wonderful sentiment.

The stamp set is called Really Hungry
The paper, die, scoring tool are all from Stampin' Up.

using embroidering thread (brown and red)
the Paper piercing is from a set from Stampin' Up.
With my mom's help because she has these wonderful
Heart Shaped dies from Stampin' Up
we were able to complete this card.
I must say it was so much fun getting crafty with her.
The idea of doing the whole card as a heart shape was hers.
She is an incredible card maker.
I will be heading back to cut out a plan heart shape
insert for this card to complete it. Some more cards like this
one is in my future...wink, wink.

I Love You Even When.....

Good morning everyone!
It was a beautiful weekend with warm temperatures.
It was a busy week and weekend but tons of fun :)
I had sleep overs with some girl friends, visiting with family
we don't see much, watched some high school basketball (more visiting and laughing with parents). Visiting with our kids
it really was a wonderful week, filled with some tears and laughter. 
Oh and I received
happy mail too this week...yay me.
I am ready to start this next week, but once again I say
how did we get to the almost 15th of the month already?
Wasn't it just Jan 1st?

Today, I am super duper excited to share a brand new stamp
clear stamps, card making, Valentine's Day cards, cupcakes, smores, pudding cup, hungry, head tomatoes, paper crafts, sentiments, hand made cards, hand stamped cards, love, love notes, love cards, unique sentiments

 It was so much fun to pick a sentiment 
and which image I wanted to use on this card.
The whole time, I was making it, Emery my
grandson was on my mind.
He loves his yogurt/pudding and he loves us even
when we are a little slow at getting him a
snack when he is sooooooo Hungry.
The yogurt containers were stamped using three
different stampin up inks and the paper is from stampin' up as well.
The dies are from Gina Marie designs. The inside scallops was sponged
using the three inks.

I would like to enter my card into the following:
The Corrosive Challenge - Challenge # 1 - January - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C466 - Humorous

Wishing you a very blessed week ahead,
Thank you for stopping by!

Jukebox Birthday

 Good morning!
Today, is an exciting day but one that has
me thinking the years have gone way to fast.
Our oldest son Tristan turns 22 today!
To me the years have just flown by
where he once was a baby, little boy, 
teenager, now stands a young man.
Who we are so very proud of him.

The card above has been made for him.
He is truly a Limited Edition!

The stamp set I am show casing today is
As you can see below, there are
wonderful dies to go with the stamps. 
So many different kinds of cards you can make
for so many special people in your lives.
Clear stamps, birthday stamps, paper crafting, rubber stamping, die cutting, dies with matching stamps
 The sentiments/stars are stamped in Cajun Craze
which make them pop (I think)
The jukebox die is from the stamp set.
the texture if from an embossing folder
paper and punch along the side and corner rounder from
Stampin Up.

My card below, I posted last week as well
but am posting it again
as Denise is putting it on her blog this week.
I jumped the gun last week posting it.
Sorry Denise.
Be sure to join us at The Project Bin blog
My fellow DT's have phenomenal creations from Monday-Friday.

Thank you so much for joining me today.
Have a phenomenal day!
