Kiss a Frog Valentine card

Hello and happy Valentine's Day.  I'm sharing one last Valentine's card - well, for the moment since I'm still finishing up two others, but I think even late they will still be well received.

I guess these are usually called Gal-entine cards.  This is for one of my besties who has kissed her fair share of frogs, and those darn things never turn into prince charming!  I figure we will end up together in a little house when we are old and just be happy - remember the ending of The Color Purple??
Anyway, my image is from From the Heart Stamps by artist Faith who is no longer with us.  I added a bit of sparkly gel pen to the crown and of course a touch of glaze.  The sentiment is computer generated.

That is my share for today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by.

This meets the following challenges: Polkadoodles: Anything Goes, Cute Card Thursday: CAS, Southern Girls: Anything Goes, and Little Red Wagon: Wild One.

Balloons and Ice Cream card

Hello and happy hump day.  We've been getting quite a bit of snow and enjoying every moment of it.  But it melts just as fast as it falls.  I still admire its beauty though.

For today, I would like to share a card for the current Corrosive Challenge: Anything Goes.

I'm featuring StarStampz Balloons and Ice Cream on my Valentine's Day card.

I added glaze to one balloon, her eyes, and the icecream. The sentiment is heat embossed and is from a Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  Super simple layout.  Another Valentine down!!

Join in this month at Corrosive Challenge if you get a chance!  Thank you for taking a peek.

This meets the following challenges: Watercooler Wednesday: All About OccasionsThrough the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, Always Fun Challenges: Love/Valentine, and Digi Choosday.

Monkey Love Valentine Card

Hello and happy Friday!  Tonight is book fair at my kids school, and I don't know if you remember bringing home a Scholastic handout filled with wonderful books for sale, and going to the fairs and spending your last pennies on a cool bookmark, but to this day, I LOVE going and seeing what is for sale.

Also today is Freebie Friday at Bugaboo Stamps.

And you can pick up this adorable Monkey with Hearts for free all week long.  He looks like he's been caught in the act of stealing all the hearts.

I picked papers with a sewing theme since this is for the girls' Grandmother who is an excellent quilter.
Hopefully the papers aren't too busy.  I feel like my little guy is a little lost in the background.  But I did pop him up to hopefully bring him more forward.  Added a few sequins and popped up a little star.  The sentiment is computer generated.  That's about it.

So pick up your freebie this week!  Thank you for stopping by to take a look.

This meets the following challenges:  CRAFT Challenge: Love/ValentineCute Card Thursday: Anything Goes, Simon Says Stamp: With Love, and Watercooler Wednesday: Feminine.
