Butterfly Birthday

I could play with this set all day long.  Love all the elements in it!  This is the third card for card class in January.  I did some casing from Sandy Mathis at .  Love the card she created and gave me a chance to use many elements all from same set!

You can order the stamp set and framelits as a bundle and save!  This set also comes with the choice of wood, clear or photopolymer.  I choose clear mount...knew I would use this set a lot!  
Happy last day of December and 2014!  Hope you have a safe New Year's Eve!

You're Sweet

Another Valentine's day card for card class in two weeks!  I like having lots of options for sentiments other than just Happy Valentine's Day.  I will stamp that inside but like other sentiments on front.  I love the "and" symbol.  However, my daughter saw me stamp it and thought it was some floral thing! 
This is a new set in the new Occasions (spring) catalog that starts next week on January 6th.  You can bundle this set with the paper stack for 15% savings. Love that!
  Wishing you a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

From My Heart

Preparing for my January card class in two weeks!  I have been looking forward to playing with this set and its matching punch!  I like the other sayings in the stamp set called Groovy Love but went with this small one which cuts out perfectly with the Bitty Banner framelits dies. I like green and purple together and saw another card by Erica Cerwin at use these colors so no-brainer with my color palette.  I hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Holiday Home Christmas Tag

Last tag I designed for an example at Christmas tag class coming up on Monday.
Love the Holiday Home and matching dies but there are lots of very small stamps I am afraid I am going to loose.  But the good part is they make for fun additions like the tree I could place behind the house for landscape! 
I love the snow stamp!
I hope you enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by!
