Valentines and Birthdays

Hello friends. Today I have a couple of cards to share. First my Husband's Valentine's day card. I didn't show it yesterday because of course I didn't want him to see it. It's simple but cute. Jared is definitely a man's man, so no frilly, cutesy ribbon for him. I did add some felt hearts...ummm... it's Valentine's day LOL. He can live with it.

Second is a birthday card I made for my Uncle Rafael. He is the bestest sweetest uncle ever. The weird thing is that he is two years younger than me so we grew up together like brother and sister. I was raised by my Grandmother so we are very close and he is truly one of the best people I know. Happy, happy birthday boy! Hope you enjoy, until next time Amigas.

The Stamp is Autumn Leaves, the paper is Fancy Pants-Love Story Collection (which I totally <3) Yeah I drew in the plus and equals myself, crooked :-( and inked it up with some Antique Linen and Tea Dye, Black ink is Tuxedo Black.

The clouds are Unity Stamps, the Puppy is a $1 stamp from Michaels! So cute!! The paper is Coordinations and Recollections. I added some Stickles and rhinestones from Michaels. The birdie is colored with my Prisma pencils.

Yay for LOVE!!

I'm back today. A record for me, two days in a row of sharing. Here are some more detailed cards that I really put a lot of love into. They are very soft and romantic, probably not a card I would give my Husband. He's a Man's Man for sure, so all of this soft ribbon and sweet stuffs would make his head explode! Haha. There is a LOOOONG materials list for all of these cards. I will post that later. Today there isn't much going on around here. I'm home sick with no voice and what feels like a sinus infection. So when I'm less cloudy I'll get it together and share the goodies. Hope you have a wonderful day of love. Until next time Amigas.

Love in Bloom

Hello there friends. I haven't posted any cards to share in forever but I've been creating away. It seems that January just completely skipped me and we went straight to February. The best part of this Valentine's Day is that my girls decided that they would hand out Valentines this year! I almost jumped out of my chair when I heard that! They are 16 and 14 so I haven't been asked to help with Valentines in YEARS!! There is something super awesome about this holiday. No big pressure at all, just little trinkets and goodies to the ones you love. no holiday crowds and pressure.  I just love it. Here are some fairly simple cards I put together. All of the bases are Kraft cardstock by Co'ordinations.

That chipboard is Martha Stewart, everything else is Colorbloc, ribbon is Hobby Lobby.

These monkeys are DCWV. So cute!

All of this is Colorbloc, the white cardstock is Wausau papers, twine is Martha Stewart.

I have more cards to share tomorrow. For now I'm off to buy some treats for my 4 Valentines. My sweet Hubby and my 3 sweet girls. Hope you have a super sweet day. Until next time amigas.
