Getting Ready For Valentines Day!

The first card I would like to share with you is one for the Cute Critters Club sketch challenge over at CafeMom. I was trying to figure out which image to use and realized I haven't used any of my Riley Stamps in quite some time. I just love Riley and have missed him!!

The next card is for the current challenge over at Our Creative Corner. I really liked this simple sketch. I used this adorable image from the Anya Love collection. The heart is a from the dollar bin at Target!! Thanks for stopping by... I am off to get some sleep after a super crazy day!!

Tryin' to Keep the Mojo Flowin'!

I know there are lots of people bummed about the cancellation of the Relay Challenge over at The Greeting Farm. I am defiantly one of them, but I know they had good reason to cancel. I decided to create a card with one of my TGF stamps that I hadn't even inked up yet... she is Lolli Anya! Isn't she cute??!! My daughter needed a birthday card for a party she is going to on Saturday, and I thought this image and papers would work great! I used the sketch at Sketch Saturday for this card... just love this layout! Have a great night!


Prince Ian and the Three Musketeers!

Ok, how stinkin cute is Prince Ian? I am just in loooove with him! I am home sick with my little Allison today and decided to make a card while she was resting. (Even though the monster laundry pile was calling my name!) I used SU! background paper and copics to color Mr. Ian. I also used the sketch from Papertake Weekly. As I was working, Allison saw a few images lying on the table and informed me that they were the Three Musketeers and created a card!! I think she did pretty good! She even took the picture. Hopefully she is starting to feel a bit better!!!

TGF Relay Challenge: Toby Cub!!

I am having the best time with this contest!! Toby is so cute and was so much fun to work with. For this card I used Dawn's current sketch at ICS. It was such a great sketch and worked so well with this image. I am really liking the color combo on this card. The DP is from SU! and I used my Copics to color. I am sorry all my posts have been so short. I don't know what my deal is, but I just can't focus... must be lack of sleep and too much stress at work! Have a great night, and be sure to stop back by my blog tomorrow for a Crafty Creations blog hop!! There are TONS of prizes to be won!

It always makes me feel good to actually use scraps!! I tend to forget about them all the time!!
