All You Need is Love

Love, Love, All you need is love...remember that song from long ago? Well, the day for all hearts to come alive is here and the florist is pleased with the number of flowers and chocolate that has been sold.  As for me, I think if I were given a box of markers or crayons and a bouquet of lace I would be just as happy and feel just as loved (smiles).

Today I am going to share two cards with you that I hope you will like.  One is without any coloring and the other is with an image and coloring.  They both represent the day of caring and loving one another.  So here we go.

This card was created using Spellbinders Nested Hearts Die, Martha Stewart Border Die, Lace, Ribbon and DP from Cosmos. I inked my edges using Distress Inks, printed out a greeting and added a lock from my stash to complete the card.  I couldn't find a key flat enough for the inside so I just stamped a greeting.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Moo-Mania - #159 Love (2/20)

Crafty Gals Corner - #159 Add A Heart (2/26)
Craftaholics R Us - #7 RED (2/20)
Crafty Addicts - #45 Anything Goes/Loved Up

When I created this card I was trying to use paper I had in my stash from last year and I think it is by Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.  I think my image is one from Mo Manning but I can't recall the name of it or anything.  I colored her with my Copics, added a few Recollection flowers, stamped and cut out a greeting using Die'namics Fishtail dies to complete the card. On the inside, the heart border punch is one of Martha Stewarts.

That's all I have for today. I really must go see about my laundry, after all the washer stopped almost an hour ago and the dryer who knows.  Seems like I forget everything whenever I go in my craft room (you know what I mean).

But as always thanks for stopping by and find beauty in all things.

Little Graduate

Surprise fellow crafters, I am back again with another post.  It has been quite some time since I created a scrapbook page so this was something I really had fun doing.  My youngest grandson graduated from kindergarten in 2016 and I am just now getting around to creating a page for him, so I would like to share my page with you but before I do I have an announcement to make.

The winner of my loyalty giveaway.....
 per Mr. Random is
entry number 12

Please email me at with your shipping information.
Note: You must claim your win before Saturday, February 17th.

Now on to my scrapbook page creation I have to share with everyone.

To create this page I used Graphic 45 paper from the "ABC Collection" along with their stickers and chipboard pieces. I layered and inked all my edges using Distress inks and to add dimension I used a few pop dots here and there.  My inspiration comes from Arlene, "Butterfly Kisses" who I think is one of the best when it comes to creating with Graphic 45. Hope my page has inspired you to create a page if you haven't in a while or if you've never given it a try. These projects make a perfect conversation piece and can be part of your home decor.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

QKR Stampede - #282 Anything Goes (2/15)
Crafting With Friends - #60 Anything Goes (2/14)

That's all I have for this post.  I hope everyone has a fabulous, loving Valentine's Day and I'll check back in next week with everyone with hopefully another giveaway.

As always thanks for stopping by.

Love Is In The Air

Are you looking for the giveaway?

February, the month of romance and love in its simplest form has arrived and Cupid is dancing as folks prepare to share their hearts with the ones they love (family, friends, and special ones).
I wanted to create something that was masculine and cute but my brain just wasn't prepared to leave the flowers and the bling so I had to search for inspiration.  After a couple of days, I found what I was looking for and now to share it with you.  My inspiration came from Tracy owner of "I Wanna Create A Memory". To see Tracy's creation click here.  Kudos and thanks for the inspiration.
Without any other chatter here is my card, perfect for the man that has stolen your heart or perhaps you allowed him to take it (smile).

The paper I used was by My Mind's Eye "Union Square" and the stamp is from Mo's Digital Pencil titled "Heart Thief". 
I colored the image using Copics, cut it out with my Brother Scan N Cut and positioned it on Spellbinders Standard Circles die.  I added two hearts using Spellbinders Nested Hearts and generated a greeting on the computer that I cut with a Die-namics Fishtail Banner die. Other items used include natural twill twine and EK Success picture corner punch.
