Just wanted to drop by for a quick post. I have been wanting to do this ever since I laid my eyes on the Oh, Hello stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
The fletching (are you impressed by my knowledge of the anatomy of an arrow? Don't be I totally Googled "parts of an arrow" and learned it was called a fletching and not the feathery thing at the end of the arrow)) is the chevron patterned stamp from the Oh, Hello stamp set. I used markers to color the different sections and then cut it out. The point is fron the Hearts a Flutter stamp set. I though it would be cute to carry on the chevron theme. The large Real Red hearts were cut from the Hearts Collection Framelits and the sentiment is from the Seasonal Sayings stamp set. The Seasonal Sayings stamp set was originally featured in the Holiday Catalog but has been carried over and can still be ordered. You can check out all the stamp sets and products that have been carried over on page 36 of the Occasions catalog.
That is it for now. I am running behind schedule and need to get some paper cut and projects prepared. I am planning to post again later in the day but to be sure you do not miss any posts become a susbcriber of my blog and you will be notified when I post. It is easy, just go to the left hand side of the blog and fill in your email address iright below the sign up block for my mailing list. Super simple!
Today's card mixes a little something new, chevron image from the Oh, Hello stamp set and the great sentiment from the Word Play set.

Have a creatively wonderful weekend and remember it is Sale-A-Bration time! I will be back to share a fun little project featuring some of the fabulous and fun Sale-A-Bration products.
Today we are mixing a little old, Button Buddies stamp set and a little new, Hearts a Flutter stamp set and framelits and I am pretty tickled with the results. There is only one problem. I could not decide on which layot I liked best so i am going to show you all three.
Here we have a little side banner action. Don't you love the cherry hearts? Both of the hearts were stamped in Real Red ink and the images are from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set. The cherry stem was colored in with Gumball Green and Soft Suede Stampin Write Markers.
Here the banner was placed in middle with the cherries layered on the Real Red Polka Dots from the Polka Dot Parade DSP.
So, right about now you are wondering why didn't I just make all three cards. Here's the sad truth....I only had that one little strip left of the Real Red Polka Dot Parade DSP! I have two open packs of Polka Dot Parade DSP and just that one little strip of the Real Red. I guess it is plain to see what colors I like to work with. I am going to try and exercise some willpower and not order more of the Polka Dot Parade DSP until I use up some of the other colors. We shall see how long I can stand it.
Are you wondering which layout I decided to commit to with my last little bit of Real Red Polka Dots? Which one do you like best? I am posting the finished card to my Facebook page. I am working on posting more often to my page so click on over and see the finished card and let me know if I made the right choice.

I know, I can feel your eyes rolling at the very idea of Valentine's Day! The only reason I even dare mention this is in case you are on the fence about purchasing the Googly Ghouls stamp set. If you are like me I am always thinking about how I can use the stamps I have for other occasions. I wanted the Googly Ghouls set and so I needed to figure out ways to use it other than just for Halloween. After some brainstorming this is one of the ideas I came up with. Hope you like it!
Here's the sentiment on the inside of the card.
Stamps: Googly Ghouls, Delightful Dozen Ink: Black Stazon Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Polka Dot Parade DSP, Red Glimmer paper Punches: Owl Builder (small heart), Small Heart Big Shot: Heart Collection Framelits,Perfect Polka Dot folder Extras:Googlies
What other occasions can you see using the Googly Ghouls stamp set for? Anyone for Happy Mummy's Day? I would love to have more ideas to show that Googly Ghouls is not just for Halloween! To order your own set go to my online store and be sure to share with me all the fun and creative ways you come up with using this set!
I told you a little about my February 12 in 12 list and today I will tell you about another one. Send Valentine's cards. Should be easy right? Yes, it should be until it dawned on me that it is only a few days away. EEK! So I have been making an even simpler version of the card I showed you on Tuesday. Hard to believe I could make it even simpler huh?
I started out using the Mocha Morning DSP and then went on to the Flirtatious DSP. Once I started making these cards I got a little carried away and am now finishing up the 30th one.
Here's the inside of the card. Now I need to get writing and get them in the mail. Once I do that i will have completed 4 out of the 12 on my list. Good thing it is a leap year and there are 29 days this month!
It always seems to happen this way. I plan a day of stamping and nothing happens, no inspiration, no nothing. I know tomorrow when I have a busier day planned I will be itching to get into my stamp room. It is crazy. This is about all I could come up with and it could not get any simpler.
I was going to send this to the Boy but before I do I am going to cut a new wing for this bird. Maybe I am being silly but I just think it would be better with another wing.
I am going out for a slow walk. As predicted I am a little sore. Actually I feel great as long as I don't move. Maybe after my slow walk I will be a little more inspired. Hope you are having a wonderfully creative day!
