Audrey 4 Heather

I love Audrey Hepburn!  So when I came across this stamp from Stampingbella I couldn't not resist!  Especially since it was on sale on my birthday...Happy Birthday to me.  Could you believe that she sat without being inked for almost 3 weeks!!!  I went down to visit my Gma for her 90th birthday this year (as I do every year for her bday) and since I stayed with my cousin for a few days since extra family was down, I came home and made her up this card as a "Thank You".  I wanted to keep it simple and elegant like Audrey.  I do think the combination of black, craft, and vanilla met that!  The rest of the saying is on the inside of the card.  I really like this stamp and promise it will be used often!!!

Valentine's Day Kisses

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card!  Saw a sample of this on, you guessed it, Pinterest! (Don't go there you will be forever lost in all the stuff there!)  So I played around a bit and was able to make one of my own with what I had!  Was so excited!!!  And YES, the chevron makes for an eyecatching play!  Believe me, I measured and remeasured to make sure one end wasn't shorter than the other for every piece I cut!  Glad I wasn't the only one who had a time with this play on your eye piece!  The girls also had a hard time believing that the ribbon wasn't cut wrong too!  Overall, this card was a pretty big hit and was by far my favorite card of the month!

Simple Red Valentine's Day

For those of you who know me, I like to recycle stuff!  Makes me especially excited when I can do that with cards and scrapbooks like in this card!  Look close do you see it?  Yes, it is the red design behind the punched out hearts!  Would you believe it is the belly band for Christmas PJ's?!  Know it's hard to tell, but the design on it is actually snowflakes.  This is a pretty simple, got the idea from another card, card!  LOL  Sometimes it's the simple things in life!!!

Envelope of Love

Who does not love an envelope full of surprises?  Especially if it's full of love like this one!  Once again was seeing envelopes with hearts coming out similar to this and decided it was time to blow the dust of my envelope die and put it to use!  (Will be using it in a few more projects coming up)  Not only that, but I used some more retired DSP and the BG french script (one of my favs)!  Stayed with greys and blacks and used the reds/pinks from DSP for the pop of color!!!
