I'm Bananas for You

It's a Valentine for my husband, but you could easily use it to show your love anytime. The cute monkey is from the Sweethearts cartridge. Thanks for coming by. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Valentine Trio for Kids is featuring a challenge for Valentines for kids. Here are my entries. I found all of these animals on the Sweethearts cartridge. A Spellbinders die was just the right size for the 3 x 3" cards. Hope these take you back to pleasant memories of your childhood.

Birdhouse Thank You

I'm indebted to some special people for their recent acts of kindness. The lastest in my attempts to thank them is this simple but cute birdhouse card. It's just right for that person who loves birds, birdhouses, or nature. Hope you like it.

Fancy Tree Thank You Card

Another card using the Heritage cartridge. This one features the first cut in the manual, an intricate tree that, despite its many branches and squiggles, cut beautifully. I used the basic two-mat-plus-one-printed-paper idea, but instead of layering them all squarely on top of each other, I turned the top one 90 degrees. A shadow to enhance the tree and a simple message of thanks, and this easy card was finished. I like it so much, I'm thinking of tweaking the idea a bit to make a birthday card. This tree is too great not to use. Hope you're inspired as I was.

Cowboy Hat Birthday Card

Finally, I'm back with another video. I can't believe I've been away so long. I hope you enjoy this card especially for guys--of all ages. I used the Paper Doll Dress Up cartidge and printed papers from the DCWV Stack 8 Pack. Have a great day.
