Happy Valentine's Day!

 I was disappointed that I didn't get to participate in the SSS Blog Hop this month, I was truly just busy with all my other class preperations etc.  I did find time to make a couple of Valentine's Day cards and I must say, I LOVE how they came out!  I tried my hand at the flinger confetti card and so I made one for my husband (the first one) and one for my sister.  I used the Hardwood background stamp that has become one of my new FAVES! Some Real Red card stock and Baked Brown Sugar and a strip of DSP from the In Color 14-15' Color Stack.  I used the Hearts Aflutter Die set for the heart cut out in the front.  I added a retired button with some Linen Thread tied into a bow.  I stamped the Happy Valentine's Day using a stamp from my "go to" stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes.
 For the inside, I made a confetti flinger! It is so much fun! My husband kept loading it up and opening it! lol
This is the one I did for my sister. I just switched out the colors to Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe.  And the embellishment is one of the In Color 14-15" Boutique Details.  The inside is the same as the first one.  So, with this post, I want to wish every one MUCH LOVE and Happy stamping!  As I type, we are yet again, getting MORE snow...grrr...yesterday was BEAUTIFUL and thawed a ton of, isn't it grand how Mother Nature can work?

More Owls!

 My latest consignment gig projects! I just love making these, in fact, I already have an idea for EASTER to make similar! Gonna put that thought into action here soon!  I used up some retired stuff, so the DSP for both are from last year's mini, Sweet Shoppe.  I love it, but it feels good to let it go, I think I have a hoarding issue? Oh well, at least it's a good hoarding choice.
 I won't bore you with all the details of how, but I wanted to say that I used a plethera of current product too. I used the Bubble Framelits and Just Sayin' stamp set from the current Mini catalog.  All of the cardstock is current as well and the Hearts Framelits for the base of the treat holder.
 I really love the way they turn out everytime.  I'm kind of addicted to owls on stuff...
I hope she can sell them, I would LOVE to receive one for Valentine's Day!
