Pooh Valentine Card

A very good friend of mine loves Winnie the Pooh.  We tease her all the time about her ringtone because when her husband calls it rings the Pooh song and she always answers "hello Pooh Bear".  Well, this gave me an idea....I asked her hubs if I could make him a card to give to her.  He has done a ton of nice things for me over the years, so I thought maybe I could return the favor.  So my idea was to have Pooh lovingly thinking about his honey pot and so this is what I came up with...

Valentine Gifts for Co-workers

I made these chocolates and then bagged and tagged them for Valentine's Day to give to the girls I work with.  They loved them.  Oh, I also included a picture of the cards I gave them... 

The wording on the card was heat embossed using Versamark Dazzle (Frost) and Stamp 'n Stuff embossing powder (Kaleidescope) and says "all things grow with love". The card itself is embossed using the Cuttlebug Heart Blocks embossing folder and inked using fluid chalk.

Sending Mom Love through Snail Mail

Here is my Valentine card to my mother.  I guess I could've just done one card for the both of them, but it was fun doing two.  I haven't done cards for Valentine's Day in years, but I just couldn't help myself. 
The snail  and love you is from Paisley.  Hearts are from Doodlecharms.  Stitching was done by hand using a Souffle Pen.

Hoppy Valentine's Day Dad!

My first attempt with an acetate card...I like the way it turned out but it is impossible to keep the plastic clean!  Hopefully it is manly enough for a valentine to a father :).  Frog is from Paisley cartridge.  Writing on inside is welded in Gypsy using Cursive 101.

Baby Shower Card

Here is a card I made to double as a gift card holder for my husband's cousin's second child.  The sad thing is that I missed the shower because I thought they told me it was on a Sunday, but it was actually a Saturday.  I came in to church that morning and asked her "now what time is the shower today?" and her response was " was yesterday."......totally embarrassed!  I sure hope she liked the card :).

Gift Purse

Here is a purse I made for a girl friend's birthday...

I know, I has been a while

I realize it has been a while since I have made any posts.  Things have been crazy since the new year began.  I have been working on several different things.   On top of work, I have been coordinating a family cruise for this coming Christmas, been making samples for a bazaar that I am going to be involved in on the 21st of Feb, and I am involved in a church play.  I should be done with the play this weekend, weather permitting.  Then I have to get back onto making items for the bazaar and when I am done with those, I will be posting some of the projects.  Check back soon!
