Lucky to Have You - Friend!

Hello dear friends! Welcome to the start of another week! I made these two cards for the Inspiration Challenge over on Split Coast this weekend.

This card was inspired by shamrock-heart necklace on the Cath Kidston web site

I used a free digi stamp and sentiment from PaperSmooches on my card. I embossed the background with Argyle embossing folder and cut out the sentiment with a nestie tag die. This card also works for The Ways to Use it Challenge this week - to use polka dots and the Free 4 All challenge -show your luck!

Stamps: Digi Stamps from PaperSmooches
Paper: white, pure poppy - PTI, Kraft - Gina K, DP dotted green - Amuse
Ink: Ranger Distress - Bundled Sage
Accessories: Ribbon tag trio 2 - Nestabilities, Twill - SU, Argyle Embossing folder, Foam tape, heart punch - McGill, corner rounder

My second card was inspired by this cute spot carry all bag . My Friend sentiment is from Rubbernecker . This card also works for the Ways to Use it Challenge - to use Polka Dots

We finally had some really warm weather this weekend (50's) and lots of our snow melted (finally!) I can actually see some soggy lawn as well as all the branches that had fallen during the snow storms we had all winter that got covered in the snow - now exposed!! Lots of clean up to be done this spring!

Batty In Love

I'm sure you have all heard about Kim Hughes new stamp company - PaperSmooches. I love her cute characters and the great fonts she uses for her sentiments!

Well, she announced that the first Thursday of each month you can link a card or project on her blog using Papersmooches stamps and she will choose a guest designer from the entries for the next month - you can read all about it here.

So - anyhoo - here is a card I made using the Papersmooches set Falling for You to enter into today's contest.

So this could be a Valentine's Day Card with the Batty in Love sentiment - or a Halloween card for your loved one!! LOL!!

Wish me luck!?
