My Best Friend

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I can here Spring here because the birds are chirping right out side in the trees and bushes. Too bad they are forecasting snow for us tomorrow night into Thursday though I believe it when I see it, we have had so many false alarms when it comes to the white stuff around here. I want to give a big thanks to my dear friend Pia. She opened her house to us on Saturday so that all the stamping/scrapping friends myself, Peggy, Michelle and Donna could have a full and fun day of  creating and crafting (Kristen we missed you).

This week for the challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations is Pop It Up! I love to pop a lot up on my cards with pop dots. It time I decided to try something different, I colored the image multiple times then cut out the pieces, turned them over and used my ball stylus to puff or pop out the shapes of parts of the image. It is fun to do but takes some practice to make it look perfect. It is definitely something I will do again.
I hope you want to come play with us this week, I can't wait to see what you create!

For My Love on Valentine's Day

Happy Tuesday! I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend. I got a bunch of the new Memory Box dies and couldn't wait to pay with them though I didn't use any of the new ones on this Valentine's Day card. The pretty heart in the corner is from a previous release. I also watched the Super Bowl like many of you probably did, now on to Nascar, Yeah can't wait! I am a motorhead at heart.

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we are celebrating Valentines's Day since it is right around the corner so the theme for this week's challenge is an easy one create a Valentine. As you can see I decided to go the non-traditional color route for my Valentine. I got this adorable image at Paper Shelter and thought immediately of this DP from Bearly Mine that I bought sometime last summer. I think it is a perfect match and I love the colors in it. The DP actually has some hints of pink in it though the camera didn't pick it up real well. It only took a few swipes of my Copics to tie the two together. What do you think? We can't wait to see your Valentine's so come play with us. Kristen over at Scrap-Creations is also offering a prize to one lucky player so go over and find out what it is!
