Love is in the air -

Love is in the air at Stampendous February Challenge.  I made this card for my son and daughter-in-law, who got married in St. Thomas last year and have an anniversary coming up...she really liked this great Jumbo Tulip stamp so I figured it would be perfect.  I stamped the image in Versamark and used white embossing powder then sponged inside the lines.  The sweet sentiment is also from Stampendous.

A Vintage Hero Challenge

Trying to get a couple of cards made for some fun challenges before the end of February...this month sure went by fast!

This card is for two challenges:
A Blog Named Hero #20  - 'If I could turn back time' to create a shabby chic or vintage style card...the vintage bicycle and the sentiment are both from Hero Arts...papers are from 7 Gypsies.

The second is for a sketch challenge over at:
Lucy's Cards Sketch Challenge Day 4

Complete recovery - PDCC167

I needed a 'Get Well' card for a good friend at work and thought I'd try to combine it with the color challenge over at The Play Date Cafe:

For some reason, my fuschia looked a lot more fuschia till I put it next to this...oh well, I was happy with how it turned out. 

I purchased this flower stamp and punch combination quite a while ago and this is the first time I've used it, just got sidetracked with so many fun new sets out there.  I have to pat myself on the back for using this decorative brad though (I am such a HOARDER when it comes to things like that!)  Anyhow, everything but the brad is Stampin' Up...been a while since I've said that.  Thanks for stopping by, be sure to say hi!
