Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


A little early – a love note for my honey!

Ok, I also met a challenge on the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog using The Stamps of Life stamps! Why not hit 2 birds with one stone?? 🙂

The challenge was to create a Valentine themed card. Not too hard, especially when you have some great stamps to work with! Thanks Stephanie at TSOL!

One of my goals for the year is to stockpile cards to use throughout the whole year. Soooooo, I’ve been using different sketches here and there to use to create these cards. Oh, I’m trying to also use some scraps and other tools that I may have not used yet. This card uses both scraps from a BasicGrey Indian Summer collection card class and some Spellbinders dies that I hadn’t used yet. I was also able to use some stitch stamps that I hadn’t used in awhile, remember those??

For this card, I die cut the bird out of P K Glitz‘ Sticky Paper and glittered it with different colors. I like the soft feel to the card and can’t wait to use it!
