Heart on a String

Hi Friends!  Have another Valentine card for you, though truth be told I may use it for my Wedding Anniversary that is coming up on Feb. 8th.  It will depend on what else I make between then and now lol.  I seem to be in love with Baker's Twine at the moment and just LOVE that Twinery Twine! Take a look:

I used my new Cricut Cartridge 'Everyday Pop Up Cards' for the hanging hearts. What a fun cart, I really need to explore it more.  The Twinery Baker's Twine is in Charcoal and Maraschino, Cardstock Coredinations, Dot paper is My Mind's Eye Antique Dots, The metal love heart charm I found at Michael's in the wedding aisle. I cut off the jump ring and glued it to the center of my heart.  Jolee's Boutique are the jewels, two metal eyelets, Versamagic Black Ink,a small and smaller generic heart punch, and the digi font is 'Pea Amy' that I found online!  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping in to visit and I am so touched by all the wonderful comments you great friends leave on my blog.  You truly make my new blog world a world where I LOVE to be!!! Thanks and HUGS!!

Tied By Love

Hi Everyone!! Man, this month just seems to have totally gotten away from me.  I have only gotten a couple of cards made and I need to start working on Birthday Card again. YIKES! Someone come and light a fire under me Please!   I made a Valentines card today...gotta get a few of these done before the big day arrives.  CAS-ual Fridays have a Black and White challenge going so I thought I would try my hand at a totally black and white card.  Those two colors are just so elegant no matter what kind of card you are making.  Have a look.....

 This elegant and cute card took very little supplies.  I used my cuttlebug folder -swiss dots, Charcoal baker's twine from the twinery, a small and med heart punch (have no idea what brand) and the computer digi font is Ottum Hmk reg and bold.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me awhile :)  Hope to see you all back here soon and I will announce the winners of my Valentine Giveaway on Feb 1st, so stay tuned for that! HUGS ALL!!

Wintery Thinking of you

A neighbor of ours lost his mother this last week, so I wanted to make a sympathy card.  There are a few  wintery and blue and white challenges out there so I put a winter spin on it and really liked how it turned out.  Here it is:

 I used a new Cricut Lite cartridge titled "Wildlife" and LOVE IT.  It has just wildlife animals and a few words.  It is one they sell at Walmart.  I had been eyeing it for a while now and finally broke down and bought it.  I used some silver glitter paper behind the deer and dotted glitter glue on the white background.  Triad Leaves is the Sizzix folder for the embossing and Baker's twine from the Twinery,  in Denim.  The font is called Verdana.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Hope you are having a GREAT WEEK! Thanks to those who have been entering my Valentine's challenge! See you Soon!
