Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend, we just hung around the house this weekend, nothing too exciting.  I did manage to get a couple of cards made though and a few images colored.  I hadn't felt like making anything lately but once I started I didn't want to stop:)

This week at Unscripted Sketches there was not only a sketch but a color combo to incorporate too.  This one is for a co-worker that is having a baby in March.

Hugs and Kisses

Hi there!  Here is a card I made for a swap at Splitcoast Stampers.  We could use our favorite stamp x 2, which meant that we could use two images, one image and one sentiment, or two sentiments.  I chose this cute birdie from Hero Arts.

Over the next fews days you probably won't see much from me because I have some design team commitments I need to take care of and a couple of swaps that need to be completed and mailed out.

I hope everyone has a great week and to all my friends up North, please be safe in all that snow.

Love is in the Air

Good Morning!  I hope everyone is having a great weekend, I know I am.  Yesterday we helped put together meals that are going over to Haiti, it was a mixture of rice, soy, dried veggies, and a vitamin tablet.  Once they receive it they will be able to put their own spices and meat to make a meal.  It was a very rewarding experience.  Today we're hoping to go see the Tooth Fairy, I'll let you know if it's any good. 

I made this card for my Crafty Critters group, today we are having a VSD and this challenge is going to kick it off!  The challenge was to make a boy card in honor of the men playing football today, combine it with two other challenges, and make sure there is no bling on it.

The other two challenges I used are:

~Eat Sleep Stamp - Sketchy Thursday #69 and
~La-La Land Crafts #24 - Hearts
