Card Attack!!!

Hello Friends and Family!!

I am sharing some cards tonight.  I don't know what came over me, but I completed 10 cards over the weekend.  I worked on them on Saturday and Sunday night.  I really had fun, and if I would have had more time, I would have made even more.  :o)

1.  This was the first card of the night.  I used one of the tags I made a couple of weeks ago.  I thought it would look good on a card, and I was right!  I attached the tag to an old Bo Bunny card kit body.  Inked and distressed it up, added some pearls that I sprayed with Tattered Angels, and there it is.  :o)

2.  I used scraps from my tags I made last week on this Valentine card.  These scraps are from the Authentique "Lovely" valentine line.  I also used a left over flower that I sprayed with Tattered Angels and Heidi Swapp Color Shine.  I distressed and inked the edges, and finished it off with a bit of Stickles.

3.  I used some Melissa Frances paper on this card.  I distressed and inked the edges in pink, (my favorite color,) inked up a doily, and added a prima rose.  The little tiny frame is a Melissa Frances frame that I inked pink, and added a little Melissa Frances Pink Bling.  I added some lace and some ribbon to finish it up.  

4.    This card was also made with Melissa Frances paper.  I lightly distressed the edges and the border, and attached a piece of lace to the side of the card.  Then I adhered a Melissa Frances tag that I had put some Melissa Frances bling on to the card.  To finish it off, I attached one of the newest Prima flowers to the card.  LOVE these flowers!

5.  I decided to get away from the Vintage look for a few minutes and made a card entirely of SEI supplies.  I used the SEI line "Think of Me".  I think it is a fun and cute line.  In the past, this would have been the kind of card I would usually make, so I really enjoyed creating this.

6.  Here is another card made with the SEI supplies.

7.   This is a Valentine's card I made using the Authentique "Lovely" line again.  I really love this line.  I lightly distressed and inked the card and the Authentique embellishments.  I then added a couple of pieces of ribbon, and was done.

8. I used Authentiqe "Lovely" on this little one too.  With the cute vintage cut out valentines they have, the cards practically make themselves.

9.  This card is made from nearly all scraps.  Not only that, but very old scraps.  These are old SEI scraps.  I distressed and inked the edges of the card, and the borders.  Then I added the old SEI tag, the ribbon, and another one of the new Prima flowers.  I also used a rub-on on the tag.  I LOVE rub-ons!  A simple card that everyone seems to like.

10.  The last card is a mish-mash of different lines.  There is October Afternoon Christmas paper, along with an Authentique Valentine.  I used some over sized red rick-rack and a red bow to finish.  A cute valentine to send away.

Making these cards, really made me happy this weekend.

Leave me a comment if you have any questions.  Have a Happy Week!!!!

Happy February!!!

I am posting to catch up from the end of January, and to begin the month of Love!!

The happiest news for me is that I finished my tag challenge in plenty of time and have sent off my tags.  I will wait anxiously to receive my envelope sometime next week to see the tags from all the other crafters.  I really had fun creating this tag.  I learned a lot of new techniques and got outside of my usual scrappy box,  I can't wait to see what I learn next!
Here are a few pictures of the process.

As happy as I am to have finished the tags, I would like to finish more next month.  So my goal is to get a couple of layouts done, and some cards.  :o)

My daughter is back taking classes towards her masters degree, and my son-in-law is also back in school working towards his degree.  We have some geniuses in my family!!!!

My son...oh yes he Is traveling again.  He is in Cancun celebrating his birthday.


As for my dear sweet husband, he is always busy loving me and taking care of me.  That takes a lot of work and patience!
So for now friends, I wish you a very happy February with lots of love, scrapping and fun!!  xo
