Valentine's Day Card Making Spree

This week I made 4 cards.  For me that is a lot.  I am a member of a cardmaking group on YahooGroups and signed up for some swaps this month.  While they didn't all have to be a valentine theme, that is just the mood I was in so I went with it. 

This card was for my Valentine swap I signed up for.   I used the cricut cartridge Storybook for the scrolled heart and a swiss dots cuttlebug folder for the background.  I really like the way this one turned out.....the colors pop more in person.

This card was my take on a sketch the group owner put up for January.  The supplies were all from my stash and the stamp is from Penny Black.

I think this card turned out sweet.  This theme was use your cuttlebug, so I used the Birds and Swirls folder.  The birds are from the Create a Critter cricut cartridge.  I got the idea for this card from a sticker, I think it was from Bo Bunny.

The last card I created this week doesn't have a Valentine's theme so I will save it for another post...but I will tell you this.  It is totally owl-dorable. :)

Thanks for looking.

Need some help with a title for this pic......

This is my kids playing with masks at Cracker Barrel.  I am trying to come up with a catchy title for a scrapbook layout.  Any suggestions would be appreciated. :)

Art Class.......

So, I work in a school cafeteria.  The art teacher offered to teach a painting class to some of us lunchladies after school.  This is the first class like this I have ever taken but had such a blast, I would love to do it again. 

The area around his face kind of reminds me of Ronald McDonald but overall I was proud of my artistic abilities.

Starting the year off right.......

Every year I have hopes to create more than I did the year before.  Last night I uploaded a bunch of pictures to be printed so I can work on my scrapbooks.  I ordered 236 prints from Walgreens and can't wait for them to get here.  In the meantime I have some birthdays coming up for family members so I made a card.  Gotta start somewhere, right?

Just a simple card that gets right to the point. 

Thanks for looking!!

Happy New Year!!

I want to wish all of you a very Happy New Year!  My family spent New Years Eve at home.  My sister and her family came over and we played games, ate and hung out.   We played Trivial Pursuit 80's edition....that was a lot of fun....brought back some memories of my teenage years.   Then we played Scattergories.  I love this game...probably one of my favorites.  Some of the answers are pretty creative and have us all rolling. more time wishing you all a very happy 2013.
