Teddy Bo Challenge #2


If you love teddy bears you have to check out the Teddy Bo and Teddy Bea images. There is a link on the sidebar. Challenge #2 is to feature 2 images and hope I did the challenge right. The larger image is actually 1 of 3 tag images and I just cut out the one I wanted to use. Then I printed a smaller set and cut out Teddy Bo's head because a few DT members did that and it looks so cute. The sentiment is one that I purchased after my friend, Tammi,had posted a link. So much beautiful word art and great prices!

Just Magnolia


This is for the Just Magnolia challenge. It's a fun sketch and gave me a chance to use some new embellishments. My friend, Anna, sent me the beautiful red heart clusters. Aren't they adorable!!! She also gave me the cute TAC sentiment when she had my name as a secret sister. Also using red pp that my friend Tammi sent to me. I'm so lucky to have friends who help my *addiction* to hearts. ;)

Make a Wish


Time to step away from the hearts and flowers for a wee bit. lol This time every year it seems like I look back at stamps that were on the wish list and decide which ones I still want. This cutie image from LotV is one of those. It just makes me smile and so glad that it has found a place in my home.

Cupcake Inspiration 93

It's been way too long since I've played in Rachel's cupcake inspiration challenge. Even though I don't know anyone currently expecting, when the day comes, I'm ready. Kept it really simple using the colors as my main inspiration. This bella will always stay in my collection. I just love the fun image - it makes me smile. My friend, Anna, recently sent me these FUN and colorful buttons. They work perfect for this challenge.
Sending snow your way Anna! ;)

Love Letters


ACK!! I LOVE this card and how it came together. I found some American Crafts paper and ribbon on clearance at All That Scraps (paper is gone - oops I bought it all) and there might be a few styles of ribbon left.
Last year I bought this Tilda and love her cute pigtails. This year I added the BIG letter and so glad that I did - it can be used any time of year.

If you visit my blog regularly, my LOVE for all things heart is no shocker! So many sweet friends send me heart ribbon, stamps, bling, embellishments. With Valentine's Day next month, there is no lack of supplies. Today's card, however, features some new purchases that I made. This image is just so adorable and can be used all year. A silver pen was used for the wrappers. Not sure if it's showing up. Hope you are having a great weekend!
