Here is a Valentine card I made for my husband, along with some home made peanut brittle. I saw on someone’s blog this very simple but nice card they did with the Heart to Heart punch, this is my take on their card. Can’t remember where I saw it. I used some rub-ons (retired) for the jar and stamped Love you much to hang from the lid. The Bashful Blue hearts on the right I just punched the card itself and put the blue underneath the punched hearts. Used my white gel pen to add some dots and dashes. Very hard for me not to use pink or red. I was trying to make a “Man” card. So what do you think? Does it look like a “Man” card to you?
If you remember on an older post(Jan. 3rd), I made a monkey pouch. Well I needed a cat one for my other granddaughter, so here it is. I cased one that was on SplitcoastStamper’s and gave it my twist. I used the large Sizzix Scallop circle for the base and several circle punches for the rest. The ears I just cut triangles. I put some hair doodles in each of them (the cat and the monkey)and gave it to them for Valentine’s Day. They were getting a little candy from the Valentine’s I made for them to take to day care, so I didn’t want to give them more. I thought hair doodles it is!
I’m having a baby shower for my daughter this month and these are the invitations and favors I made. For the card I used Nursery Necessities stamp set, the DSP is Maine Blueberry (retired) and Whisper White Taffeta ribbon. For the favors, I cut out the pillow boxes using acetate. The stamp set is from last years Sale-a-bration, So Many Scallops. My daughter’s MIL found these cute candies at Michael’s, they are little pacifiers. My daughter already has 2 girl’s, Jocelyn is 3 & Gianna is 2, and the new baby is a boy. His name will be Anthony Miles. Since all of the baby stuff from the girl’s is pink & lavender we thought a shower was in order. You know pink & lavender just won’t work for a boy. I made up 45 invitations and 40 pillow boxes. If you click on the photos you can see them better. I really don’t like the way the photos end up in my post. Not sure how to fix that issue.
