One Very Productive Week!!!

I have been very busy with my card-making this week. It was super fun and therapeutic. I actually didn't get to bed until well after midnight a couple of nights. I really get so much more done in the wee hours of the morning, especially if Ron makes me one of his famous peanut butter frappacinnos - YumYum.

This card is actually an easel card. If you haven't tried this technique yet, please give it a try.
I scraplifted this idea from Aymee. She sent me the papers you will see in many of the Valentine cards I have made. I had this cute robot in my stash. It is cosmo cricket.

I also cut and shadowed a heart which is mounted on the bottom of the card for the purchaser to write a little note to her hubby.
This white-on-white card was a joy to construct. I used the Wedding cart for the triple hearts which are mounted on the embossed base. I shaded all pieces with rouge distressing ink. I used 2 border punches: the threading water punch in which the white ribbon is laced and the heart punch. I used a regular size pin for the glittery pink heart, and then adhered that little white heart for the center of the bow.


This awesome Bama Bear was made by none other than Aymee. I mounted it on an argyle embossed mat. The football is embossed with the swiss dots folder. The message on the inside is "Happy Valentines' Day."

This litte Hello Kitty Valentines' Day card was purchased by a lady who also ordered 2 more cards. However, I failed to take pics of them - and I really wish I had pics. I made her one more Hello Kitty and a Bama Nurse card. The nurse card is so cute!!!! I will have to make another one so you can see how it looks - I can give it to my friend who is a nurse.


I also made 2 Golden Tiger Football Player Valentines Day cards, and 2 monogrammed pictures for Carter's teachers. I really wish I had not forgotten to take pics of those things. Boo Hoo!
Thanks for visiting with me, and do come back soon.
I am off now to make my hubby's card for Valentine's Day.
See ya soon,
Carol:)
