Luckily I have been getting some cards made for challenges this week but once I get these posted, I need to get my valentines finished and in the mail. In addition to my 7 grandchildren, 1 great grandson, my daughter and 2 daughters by another mother, I have 10 homebound people from the church that I'm sending valentines to. Many are done because I have been making them over the last two weeks for challenges but I still have a few to finish and then address and mail.
Today's cards are not valentines. This first one is for Curtain Call
I bet there has been a run on hot chocolate with the weather we have been having.
I've been having a little trouble with boo boos on my cards lately so it was fun to actually make a card that called for a mess. And I didn't mess the mess. Go figure. I made the cocoa rings with an NBUS stencil from Tim Holtz and Walnut Distress Ink. The cup is cut from A Child's World and the tag and sentiment are from My Craft Spot. Can you read it? It says "Chocolate helps" and I totally agree. In fact our bell choir director gave each of us a giant candy bar when we played this morning for worship. I think he thinks it will help us play better. (wink wink)
My second card is for Muse. I just HAD to play this one because the inspiration from Vicki Dutcher is just my style. Here is her card.
And here is mine.
I love mixing papers and layering. The scalloped circle is from Elegant Edges, the star is a die from PTI and the papers are from my scraps. Well, not the background. That's something I picked up when the local craft store closed down but I don't know who it's by. The sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Bash.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your week gets off to a good start.
