The last couple of months have been challenging around here!  We are getting our house ready to sell and are in the process of “decluttering”.  Part of that involves moving my crafts to a little teeny tiny cabin for a few months.  Since most of my crafting goodies will not fit in the small space I have there,  a lot of my supplies are boxed up for long term storage.  Some of the stuff is already at the cabin and some still remains here in my craft room.  But I loved this FTL Sketch so much and the other two CAS challenges looked like fun.  So I stole away for a bit and created this card.

The challenges are:

The Clean & Simple Stamping FTL229 sketch challenge.

Less is More Week 108 Challenge to do some paper piercing on your creation.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC91 to add silver to your CAS project.

I have been so occupied with the house that I hadn’t checked the mailbox in almost two weeks.  I’m so glad I finally did.  Look what treasure was waiting there from my granddaughter, Kate!

It’s really a darling design with the heart slightly angled.  She even stamped on the inside.. a totally “pro” thing to do!

She’s already old enough to sign her name!?!  How is that possible?

Okay.. I’m back to the packing grind.  Those boxes won’t fill themselves!

Happy Crafting!

Just a quick post to share the Valentine I made for my DH.

Not a complicated design.  The heart was die cut from a piece of designer paper with the glitter already attached, and the ribbon was preprinted with the sentiment.

A box of chocolate covered strawberries from my sweetie was delivered to my door last evening.  I wish that I had taken a picture of them before they were devoured, but when I saw them… well, I wasn’t thinking clearly!  (But at least I shared!  lol)

Happy Crafting and Happy Valentine’s Day to you!

So two of today’s cards were for challenges… from last week.  I didn’t get a chance to post them before the challenges closed, but decided to share them today anyway.

The first card, however, is the one that is actually not late.  LOL  It is for today’s Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #422.

LOVED this sketch.  Added some texture with the embossing and popped up the image for a little depth.  I curved the clear photopolymer sentiment stamp when placing it on the acrylic block so that it wrapped around the top of the bouquet when stamped.  To help hold the “curve” of the clear stamp in place, a little double sided tape was first placed on the block.

This second card was for two challenges: ColourQ Challenge #173 and the Freshly Made Sketches #70.

I got to try out my new butterfly image and punch.  Love it!

And finally this third card was for the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #421 from last week.

The Pure Innocence images from MFT are just so sweet!

Well even though a couple of these cards were too late to qualify for some of the challenges, I did have fun making them.  Guess that’s the most important thing.. right?

Happy Crafting!
