Girly Girl challenge

This is the first time I'm playing along at My Craft Spot but they have a fun challenge this week.  It was a "Girly Girl Challenge" and I thought the Valentine's Day card I made for my daughter was perfect.

The girl is cut out from an old calendar.  I added a little glitter (Diamond Stickles) to the heart.  The sentiment is stamped from a set I got at a yard sale.  Says "Rubber Stamps of America" on the block.  The scallop border, corner glitter roses and the I love you are all stickers.  That was really it.  But I liked how it all came together.

Thanks for swinging by!

Happy Valentine's Day card

I just bought Valentine cards this year for the kids to hand out to their classmates.  As a cardmaker this was kind of hard to decide but ultimately, I didn't want to spend the time on that project when I have many other things on the go.  BUT I couldn't give my 4-year old's teachers, super hero cards.  So I made theirs. :o)
I knew I wanted to use this sentiment which I found online here made by Dixie Allan.  I love the images on this site and they're FREE!

But when I printed it, the red turned out more like burgundy on the pink paper.  (I used my Stampin Up! large scallop punch to cut them out.)  I went to my stash of paper and found this pretty diamond pattern that matched perfectly.  It was from there that I chose the green as my base.

I added a pink ribbon and die cut leaves and here is my card:

I didn't see any challenges to enter this card so I'll just share it here because I wanna!  :o)

Flower friendship

The Paper Players have a challenge this week to use flowers.  Pretty awesome considering I've been wanting to use this new stamp!

Blue cardstock is the base.
Layered pretty floral patterned paper on that.
Stamped the sentiment in white Stampin Up! craft ink.  Corner punched that and layered on yellow.
Finished off with the daisy embellishment.
