Moose You So Much

Hey there! Isn't this moose fun? It's another stamp from the Hero Arts Missing You set and the heart tree die cut is from Taylored Expressions. This is a card for one my nieces that doesn't live near me so I don't get to see her too often.

Hope you're having a great week! I'm looking forward to Friday and the weekend!  :)

Virginia's View Challenge - Take 2

Hello! I decided to make another card to play along with Virginia's View challenge. I water colored the background using distress inks and water. I also used a stencil to ink in the stars. I added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella brush pen to the Hero Arts owl (from my favorite Missing You set).

Hope you get a change to play along with Virginia's challenge too. It's not too late!  Have a great week!

Virginia's View Watercolor Challenge

Hello and happy Monday! My sweet friend, Virginia, is having a watercolor challenge over on her new challenge blog. It's called Virginia's View Challenge.

I wanted to play along so I created this card. I heat embossed an older Hero Arts Birthday background stamp and then used distress markers and water to watercolor the background. I added a few silver and gold stars and a word bubble to finish it off.

Have you played along with Virginia's challenge yet?  If not, go now and create something!  :)

Yikes! More Birthdays!

I have been making tons of birthdays cards lately because we have lots of family birthdays in February. Now I'm moving on to the March birthdays and trying to make them more springy - even though it's still cold here. ugh! The good news is it's supposed to reach 50 degrees tomorrow! yeah!

I made this card for my niece who is turning 17. All 17 year-olds love their smart phones, don't they? Well who am I kidding, I love my smart phone too and I'm no longer 17. When I was 17, there were no smart phones! haha!  :)  Anyway, I also love this new LOL stamp from Hero Arts. Super cute! I'm going to enter this into the Hero Arts Birthday challenge in the Floral birthday cards category.

Hope your week is going well and it's warming up where you are!
