Angie Girl Be My Valentine

Good Morning Ladies,
I had a great time stamping with my friends yesterday. I didn't get much done. That didn't matter. The food was great and conversation was even better.
The card for today is Angie Girl Be My Valentine
This is another image from Unity Stamps that was purchased during the sale. I just love her. She was stamped on watercolor paper and colorized with watercolors. The background card stock was embossed in the Gemini machine with a Gemini embossing folder that came with the machine. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.
The inside sentiment is a vellum piece from my old stash.
Happy Scraps,

It was then hand cut.

Puppy Valentine

Good Morning Ladies,
Is it Friday already?! Tomorrow I am off to a crafting day with friends. There will be food and a lot of chatting. I can't wait.

This is a heart shaped card. I cut the card base and panel using the Sizzix heart dies. The puppy and birdy scene is an image from Stampavia. The panel was cut from watercolor paper and the scene was colorized with watercolors. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.
The inside sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.
Since it is an odd size card the envelope was created using the envelope maker.

You Hold The Key Bear

Good Morning Ladies,
It of course was a fun trip to see puppies yesterday. They are all so cute! The drive was good. I can't believe I have had three really good weekends to drive up to Michigan to see puppies.
The card for today is You Hold The Key Bear
 The background paper for this card is an old Creative Memories print. It was also used for the tummy on the bear. The images and matching die cuts are from the Stamps of Life. The bear was stamped on watercolor paper and colorized with watercolors. The heart lock was stamped on gold shimmer paper. The arms on the bear cut out to slip the tummy piece and anything you want the bear to hold. Sheer pink ribbon tops this card off.
The inside sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.
