WW - Springtime, Flowers, & Romance

Hello there!  It's time for another great challenge over on the Winter Wonderland blog.  This time our theme is pretty broad:  Springtime, flowers or Romance. 

So, I went with flowers for my card.  I'm using the new January SMAK kit from Unity Stamp Co.  I stamped the image in Tumbled glass.  Then I colored the daisies with a yellow colored pencil.  I added yellow Stickles to add some sparkle to the daisies.  I die cut the 'celebrate' and colored the bottom with the yellow pencil and then added Diamond Stickles to the top of the letters.

Mixed Media TY card

Hello there!  I'm hosting today over on the ADFD blog.  I've got a mixed media card today.  I started by using texture paste with a Tim Holtz stencil.  After it was completely dry, I used several shades of blue watercolors over it.  I don't think I've ever done this before and I love how it turned out.

Mini Valentines

Hello there!  It's my turn to host over on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog today.  I've created a couple of cute, mini Valentines.  I'll probably give these to my kids this year.  I even pulled out my Envelope Punch board and made envelopes to go with them.  The cards are 3" x 4" so a sheet of 6 x 6 patterned paper was the perfect size to create the envelope :-)
