The challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is a sketch. This sketch was perfect for the card I wanted to make for my husband. I used the new Sweetheart paper pack and the SS Priceless Love Word Puzzle. My husband leaves for Afganastan this week and I wanted to make him a Valentine that tells him just how much he means to me before he leaves. Thanks H2H for a great sketch this week.

My February class is Valentine's Day themed using the new Sweetheart paper pack from CTMH. We are making a Gable box filled with treats and decorating a large Hershey bar. The name of the SS escapes me, but it might be Priceless Love??? Hope everyone had a great weekend. It is my last weekend with my husband before he leaves for Afganastan. Thanks for stopping by.

The sketch at Card Patterns is so great this week that I had to make another card for the challenge. My best friend's daughter is turning 8 on February 9th and she is having a Mermaid/Under the Sea party. I love this Octopus and I used the green leaves to make seaweed. Starfish and pearls seem like just the right touch. Thanks for stopping by.

I made this card using two different challenges. First I used the color challenge at firstname.lastname@example.org and then I used the sketch challenge from http://www.skippingstonesdesign.com/
I used the paper pack Delovely from Cosmo Cricket and the stamped image is from H&M. I also used my cricut to cut out the circle and the flower for this card. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

This weeks challenge is a little bit different. Heart 2 Heart is asking that we share an organization tip. I do not think my tips are any kind of new concept but they work for me in my little space. I live in military housing so I have never had a papercrafting area of my very own. We moved into our new military housing in October and there was a built in area. Yah me!! My organization is key because I have limited space. I hang layouts using a curtain rod. I use baskets for embellishments, punches and stickers/rub-ons. Hope this may have helped anyone with an orgainization need.
I made this card after I found a challenge at www.gingersnapcreations.blogspot.com The challenge is to use a coffee filter in your creation. I folded the coffee filter to make a skirt and a belt with ribbon. I used my favorite paperpack from CTMH called Perfect Day and the SS from CTMH called Find Your Style. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

The challenge this week at Claudia and Company is to make any shape card except for a square or rectangle. I decided to make a heart shaped card since Valentine's Day is on my mind. I decided to set the card on its side. I used glitter on the two heart flowers and glitter brads inside the two flowers. I also used diamond stickles on the wings of the bumble bees. Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone had a great weekend.

My oldest son, Nolan has CP and my husband likes to stand him up sometimes because he gets very excited. Yesterday our youngest son, Kellen came over to hug his brother. Of course I missed the picture of the two of them laughing together. And Nolan trying to lick his brothers face. These are the memories you treasure.

I wanted to make a layout with the Wings paperpack but I did not really have a picture that worked. So I used this picture of my best friends beautiful children. I only had the Wings bulk paper so that limited my paper choices. I embossed the large butterfly and used liquid glass on the word FAMILY. Also cut out multiple butterflies and glued them so that there wings would pop off the paper. After it was completed I thought of a lot of things that I wished I had done differently, but that is how we learn has papercrafters.

My friend needed a baby girl card for a baby shower this weekend. She requested brown and pink and that the card say "Welcome Baby". Well this is what I came up with. I used my new Cricut Cartridge to make the deer and CTMH paper pack More To Adore.
These are the cards I made for my very first papercrafting class that I am teaching at my house. This class will be on January 22nd from 1-3. We will be making five cards with envelopes for $10.00 (2 butterfly, 2 bird and 1 of the other). I really love this new Wings paper pack and Find Your Style stamp set from Close To My Heart. If you see this on my blog and you are interested in attending my class let me know.

I wanted to Thank everyone who has visited my blog through Feline Playful and left me wonderful comments. I need to apologize because yesterday I mistakenly deleted most of your comments. I did not realize that if you clean out your comments on your blogger it accually deletes them from your blog. Live and learn I guess. Again I just wanted to thank everyone for their great comments. I read every one of them and they were on my blog briefly. Thank you to all who are now followers I hope to have some new creations up in the near future.

Some of my favorite projects from 2010. As I looked through my creations these are the ones that seem to stand out as ones that I loved without any hesitation. I often only like parts of my creations. Or I have found that I like them at the moment but when I look back I say to myself "What were you thinking?" I am sure that we all have these moments. Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year.
