Well here we are on FRIDAY again ... where do the weeks go???
Yesterday I spent the day with my friend Terri Snode (Terri's Cards N' More) just having fun "playing" with paper! Terri''s daughter Tanya is a NEW digi artist and has her own blog store called STAWNIES - Stamps by Tanya . She sent along one of her new Valentine images called "My Fruity Valentine" and asked us to see what we could create with it. So, here is my creation:
How thrilled was I to see that Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge this week was "Bleeding Hearts" ... to use the color RED and HEARTS! This card using Tanya's image will work perfectly!!! I just LOVE Sharon's challenge and all her lovely DT ladies and try to play every week. If you're not familiar with Sharon (Boy are you missing out if you aren't familiar with Sharon & her works-of-art) then you really must check out her blog & challenges! Here are the deets on this creation:

MORE FUN ... Remember a few days ago when I showed you the Memory Keeper Card Box & Cards I made (found on StampTV) ... well, I showed them to Terri and after completing our DT creations, she & I made a few more sets. I'm sure she will be sharing her's on her blog ... and here are mine.
We both recently purchased the DCWV 12x12 pack called "the Mariposa stack" and it is just filled with beautiful butterfly & sparkle papers, so that is what we used for our card sets today!
ONE-12x12 and THREE-8-1/2x 11 pieces of paper total!! On this set I used the entire piece of 12x12 ... even the little scrap that a placed on the "inside" of the card. Looks great! If you would like the measurements ... please just let me know!
These are so much prettier IRL (click on image for larger view) ... I just can't seem to capture the beauty of my work in my photos!! I'm sure it's NOT the camera because I have a very GOOD camera ... it's probably the fact that I need to take the time and learn how to use it to the best of it's ability!!
*** Editing to let you know that I'm also entering these into this week's Practical Scrappers challenge - use patterned paper. Thanks Kim (Sparks) for letting me know ... hugs! ***
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Can you believe that when the week begins again, we will be in FEBRUARY!!! Enjoy!!
