Love is in the Air

Love and a lot of snow abound! Thank goodness this weekend's eastern blizzard didn't come far enough south to blanket us with more snow! We already had our share last week when school was closed for three days!

Can you believe Valentine's Day is next Sunday! Even though I've made a lot of cards, I still have the most important card to make...one for my darling husband! Yikes! I better get a move on so I'm not making it last minute!

In honor of Valentine's Day and a 2 Sketches 4 You Monday, I'll share this card with you.



Here's Laura's sketch that my card was based. Fun, isn't it? It was cool to work a card of this size and shape. Our sponsor for the week is Sakura pens! I love their glitter pen! I used it on the brown flowers to make a little glitter dot in the center of each flower. If you click on the card, you will get a bigger image and can see the glitter. It's a quick way to add glitter without all the mess!

I'd also like to share a hybrid card I made over the weekend.


This card was made using a digital kit called 'Bit of Pretty' by the talented Jen Martakis of Two Peas in a Bucket. This kit is in lovely pastel colors that's perfect for Valentine's Day cards, springtime and baby crafts. Or a get well card like I made. Oh, what about birthday and thank you cards? It's a versatile kit, huh?

Well, I hope everyone has a super week! I'll be back on Wednesday to share some more crafts so I hope you can join me then. Thanks for visiting and please leave me a comment; it's great to hear from you!
