Happy Birthday!

Hi, everyone!

Are you ready for a quick birthday card?  I used a QKR Stampede digi for the image & grabbed my Poppy Stamps Happy Birthday Channel die to make this quick card.  There isn't much coloring on the image & the die adds all you need to finish it!

I love the dies that cut your sentiment out! They always give you such a great look with so little effort! See you tomorrow with something else fun!

I'm collecting wrinkles!

Welcome back!

Are you ready for a huge smile today?  This the the male version of Bugaboo's Stella character & his name is Gus.  I had to grab him the minute I read the sentiment! One of these will go to my uncle in Virginia next year for his 94th birthday!



This first one was cut with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Oval Stackables.





This one was cut with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Stackables.



Of course, I had to use gingham paper!  My favorite paper in the whole world.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

29 AGAIN!!!

Hello, everyone!

Have any of you reached the age where you pretend you are 29 again.....or do you just enjoy claiming your real age to see the surprise on everyone's faces?  I kind of feel I have earned all of my wrinkles & claiming I'm still 29 wouldn't fool anyone, so why bother!

Both of these were made with Stella images from Bugaboo which I got on their Black Friday sale!
This one was cut with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Square Stackable.



This one was cut with a Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers and a Lifestyles Nesting Scallop Circles die.





Back tomorrow with Gus from Bugaboo!

QKR Stampede Challenge-Anything Goes

Hello, everyone!

Are you ready for our weekly QKR Stampede challenge?  I am! I decided to go with Digi#4102-Leprechaun for my card.  I don't usually send many St. Patrick's Day cards, but thought it would be fun to send my daughter.


Believe it or not, I don't really have any St. Patrick's Day dies!  As I discovered when I got ready to pull them all out!  ha ha  So I did find an old Martha Stewart border punch that had to to do.  A couple of sticky shamrocks from my stash and he was done.

Grab your favorite stamps & join the fun! You could win some new digi stamps if you are the winner!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

I hope all of you have a fantastic day & your sweethearts come through with something chocolate!
When my daughter was small, my folks always got her a huge heart shaped box of candy for Valentine's Day.  One year Mom found the biggest box I've ever seen!  You should have seen Melissa's eyes when they handed it to her!  I wish I had taken a photo, but I can still see her even after all these years.  I have to tell on her though.  She HATED the chocolates with jelly centers & to avoid getting one, she always pushed in the bottoms first to be sure they were not jelly!  I guess I should have been thankful she didn't just take a bite to test!  Oh, the memories!!

Well, I warned you all! Three cards today since it is Valentine's Day!

This card was made with Tutti Designs Hanging Love, & Memory Box Heart Chain Border.




This one was made with the Tutti Hanging Love & a Cheapo Dies Heart Border.





This one was done with a Tutti Designs Fancy Heart Corner, Cheery Lynn Two of Hearts, and Cheapo Dies Stitched Scalloped Hearts.


Tomorrow I'm finally done with Valentine's and back to birthdays!  YAY!!!!!!!!  Thanks for staying with me through this past couple of weeks while I bombarded you with Valentines!

Hugs,
Sherri

Love!

Hello,

Are you rolling your eyes and saying "Oh, no, not another Valentine?"  Well, I wouldn't blame you at all!  I'm kind of tired of them myself.  ha ha

Today's card uses a Taylored Expressions Block Party-Love, a Memory Box Floral Heart & a Poppy Stamps Heart String.


Sometimes a simple card is better than a fussy one.  I think this one says it all....LOVE! And that's what Valentine's Day is all about, isn't it?  I still do Valentine's Day gifts to my daughter & her family, even though they are all grown up.  Afterall, who do you love more than your family!

Prepare yourself!  I'm going to unload my last 3 Valentine cards on you tomorrow!  ha ha
If you are at the point of gagging, you may want to skip tomorrow's post!

Kitty Cupid!

Happy Monday!

Hope your week is off to a great start! Well, you all know my love of cats, so it shouldn't be a huge surprise that I have a lot of cat stamps!  This cutie pie is from Penny Black and another old, old stamp.  I cut him out with an Elizabeth Craft Stitched Hearts die & the black heart is from Cheery Lynn Two of Hearts.




I'll be back tomorrow with another fun card!

Cupid's arrow!

Happy Sunday!

What better day to share some angels, better known as cupids! These cuties are from Impression Obsession and the scalloped & solid hearts are both from No Label dies from Cheapo Dies: Stitched Hearts & Stitched Scalloped Hearts.


I thought this gorgeous paper would be perfect for the card.  It's from an Anna Griffin 6 X 6 paper pack & it's almost gone.  If I find another, you can be sure I will snatch it up!

I have another cupid to share tomorrow, but this one is feline!

Be Mine!

Hello, friends!

Today's Valentine features a cute Penny Black hedgehog I've had since 2009.  I paired him with a No label Stitched Scalloped Hearts die from Cheapo Dies and a Memory Box Heart Ribbon.


I popped the hedgehog up on pop dots to give him some further dimension. Luckily, he is still flat enough to mail easily.

See you tomorrow with my favorite cupid die!

Happy Birthday!

Hi, there!

I found this image on Bugaboo when they had their black Friday sale & laughed out loud! Just had to get it! And, of course, since today is also MY birthday, I decided to share it today. I'm sure you all needed a break from Valentines anyway!


I don't know how many of you are on Facebook, but if you are, you have seen this again & again.

I'll be back tomorrow with our weekly QKR Stampede challenge.

Be my Valentine!

Hi, everyone!

I hope you are not totally sick of Valentines yet.  I've been having such a great time making them.
The dies I used on today's are Tutti Designs Fancy Heart Corner, Poppy Stamps Happy Heart Channel & Lawn Fawn Be My Valentine Border.



With these dies, the card just about makes itself!

I'll be back tomorrow with a quick change of pace.  Since it is my birthday tomorrow, I will share a birthday card that just made me laugh!

Hugs,
Sherri

What a difference paper makes!

Hello, again!

Today I have a couple of cards made with the same exact dies but just a change of paper. As you will see, they look totally different.  For both of these cards, I've used a no label die from Cheapo Dies called Stitched Scalloped Hearts, Taylored Expressions Block Party-Love & Cheery Lynn Sweetheart Frame.  I've had the heart frame for years & years.  I think it was one of the first valentine dies I ever purchased. And I use it EVERY year!


Look at the difference a simple change of paper makes! I'm not sure which one I love the most. 



Back tomorrow with what else, another Valentine card! 

Hugs,
Sherri

More favorites!

Happy Monday!

Hope your week is off to a great start! I've been busy working on Valentines, of course! Here is another using a couple of my favorite dies.  Memory Box Floral Heart & Poppy Stamps Happy Heart Channel.


There is also a solid heart that you can cut to go behind the lacy floral heart, but I decided to let the background paper show through instead.

I'll be back tomorrow with a couple of great cards showing you the difference paper changes make.

Crazy about hearts!

Hi, friends!

Are you in the valentine mood yet?  I have gone nuts making them & now have quite a stash.

Today's card was made with a Memory Box Ferrand Heart (which also embosses) and a Poppy Stamps Heart Lattice Background.  The banner was an old Spellbinders ribbon tag.


Don't you love the embossing on this gorgeous heart?  It's one of my favorites!

I hope you haven't OD'd on Valentines yet!  I have a lot more to share!

Back tomorrow with another!

Hugs,
Sherri

Be mine!

Hello, again!

Are you ready to start concentrating on your Valentines?  I certainly am in the mood for them after making several this week!



I have had this Great Impressions stamp for many years.  I love anything with a giraffe on it & he was too cute to pass by.  I cut him out with a Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle set.  I took him to a craft show in December and I'm hoping someone bought him for their little one!  If not, I'll be sending him out to someone special.

I'll see you again tomorrow with another Valentine!

Wedding Time!

Hello, gals!

Today I'm sharing 2 wedding cards I made for a craft show in December.  I had just gotten a new die & fell in love with it!

Both cards were  made with a Die-Versions die called Floral Bride & Groom.  On this one, I embossed the background and cut it out with a Marianne Designs Oval LR0240.




For this card I grabbed a Marianne Designs Anja's Oval Die set.  One of my all time favorite die sets ever! It always makes a gorgeous card!


Be sure to scroll down to see the Dies R Us challenge for today as well.
