Fruit Fun

I was going through old photos and came across this series of cards I made with Hero Arts-Simply the Best  clear set last summer.

They made me smile and I thought you might like them too.

Do I have to use the dinosaur?

A few years back I was teaching a class and I made a card similar to this, using the  Hero Arts Scary Dino stamp. There was one table that looked at the sample card and asked - "do we have to use the dinosaur?" For some reason I was completely taken aback. I know it because I got a bit testy and said "yeah ya have to use the dinosaur!" Well the table was taken aback too!

When I think back on that class I laugh and laugh. Why did I make them use the dinosaur- what difference would it have made? 

But I did LOVE that card and the card today is an updated version of it using lots of stuff we didn't have then. Nestabilities, copic markers and of course lots of bling!!

Maybe if that table saw this card they would have been happy with it!

Is this too much?

It's not as if I don't have a stock of thank you cards at my fingertips. I had to make a new one. While I originally liked it, I am beginning to have second thoughts.

Is it too much? Maybe I shoulda left the butterfly off? I do like the white pencil on the kraft paper though.

Well, I will send it off and hopefully the person who gets it will like it.

I hoped you all enjoyed the tease of spring we had on Friday.

Have a creative week!

One day and counting!

Even though it is the 13th, today is the day I celebrate Valentine's day. All my cards are made, presents are bought and dinner is planned. I guess I am ready.

George loves the cuter cards so I couldn't resist the "Blowing Kisses" set from StampinUp.

Come back tomorrow for the last of the Valentine's cards.

Not Long Now....

Valentine's Day will soon be upon us. I usual cook a special meal on Valentine's Day for George and wait to go out to dinner another time. I asked him what special meal he wanted and he always asked for fettucini alfredo. Not only do I not like fettucini alfredo but it is so easy to make. I gotta make something a little labor intensive. It is a special holiday! Poor guy he isn't getting fettucini again this year.

 Valentine's should be the same, labor intensive! It is a special holiday and it is for thse special folk in your life.

So I put the Memory Box stamps away and pulled out all my heart and love related stuff and have started to play!

You know me, I have to have at least one card with a bird on it! Hope you enjoy this card. Come back later in the week for more love cards!
