Up, Up and Away

This week's House Mouse challenge was to make a Valentine card. I used my little Happy Hopper and let him get carried away with a bunch of red, heart-studded balloons. He's showcased amongst Su's Candy Lane DP. This came with the recently-offered bundle that included the "Love You Much" stamp set, the DP, and the 3-heart punch. I'm so glad I got this as I love the papers as well as the stamp set and punch. The small "Valentine" sentiment is from "Hearts on Fire" from Verve, as is the row of hearts along the bottom. The other sentiment was put together with my Just-Rite stamper letters. I scallop-punched it out and drew little hearts in each of the scallops. All of it is mounted on Chocolate Chip CS. My Happy Hopper is colored with Copics and then gone over to some degree with Prismacolor pencils. I had fun doing this and just might have to make a few more. Be sure to check out the other adorable cards over at HM and as always, thanks so much for stopping to take a look. I love it when you do.

Geared up for a Birthday

This card is what I did for my son who just had his birthday. Growing up he loved Legos and Transformers, so I thought he'd enjoy this robot on his card. I love this set from Alota Rubber Stamps. There is one stamp of a mommy robot pushing a baby robot in her robot buggy.....too cute! Anyway, I did this one with a computer generated sentiment on the front that my daughter came up with....."The Best Gears Are Yet to Come." I loved it and had to go with it. Of course he immediately asked if that meant his present involved a car. Get real! Anyway, I had fun with it....hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I'll still be back tomorrow with another post. (I'm on a roll.....I'll do my best to keep it up. :)
