Stamps and Heart - STAMPlorations

Hello my friends!  I never posted this card I made for my daughter for St. Valentine's Day this year.  I'm entering it into the STAMPlorations blog February challenge: Stamps and Hearts.  Although I didn't use STAMPlorations stamps, I'm so happy I can still enter into the challenge!  The doily stamps are from Martha Stewart.  The sentiment I bought from Michael's or AC Moore years ago!  The heart is from CTMH called Stitched Together.

Thanks for stopping by...time for cuddles and TV with the family!

Seize the daisies with STAMPlorations

Hello my scrappy friends!  Today I made a card for a friend's daughter who didn't get into the school where she applied.  I'm sure most of us are familiar with the feeling of working so hard but still can't reach our goal.  She does have another year to try again so I wanted to let her know that things happen for a reason and perhaps next year will be her year!

I used the sketch from STAMPlorations blog, bi-weekly sketch challenge #28.  The challenge ends tonight but if you can make a quick card, you can enter!  

The sketch:

My card:

I used Cricut cartridge Walk in my Garden for the flower and Pink by Design stamped sentiment from Life's a Garden.

Thanks for stopping it's time to cuddle with my not-feeling-so-well daughter.

It's been a while!!

Well hello my scrappy friends! It's been a while since I've posted  which means its been a while since I've created something.  I've been working a full time job in the middle school since the beginning of January filling in for someone who had some pretty intense surgery.  My last day is tomorrow.  Not sure how I feel about leaving and going back to my "real" job as a lunch aide...less hours, less money, but I get to scrap more often and play with first and second graders on the play ground once again!  I just hope the weather warms up soon :)

I had a bit of time this morning to make a card for my kid's librarian at school  She has been out since almost the beginning of October with a cancer diagnosis.  My kids want her to know that they have been thinking of and praying for her.

I grabbed my sketch from STAMPlorations Blog bi-weekly sketch challenge #27 and the colors are from Red Carpet Studio challenge #90 using black, white and your choice.  I choose red for the third color on my card.

Here is my card using scraps of paper from my stash and STAMPlorations stamp set Typografia for my sentiment.  The border stamps in white...I forget who made them!

Thanks for stopping by!
With blessings~
