Queen of Hearts

Today I have this card that just came together because the sketch from Mojo Monday was so inspiring. I basically just copied it. But I knew the exact stamp I wanted to use for it. I bought a bunch of Alice in Wonderland stamps in the summer while I was in NY state at a stamping convention. They were unmounted, and I was told I didn't really need to mount them, I could use double sided tape. Well in the end I did mount them, as I felt they stamped better. So 6 months later I finally got to use this stamp.

I am using these cards, (I made 4) for birthday cards for my friends over at Paper Craft Planet on Anything Goes Group for Random Happies.
Inspiring Sketch from www.mojomonday.blogspot.com

 The inside sentiment is another stamp that I got at that convention says, "If I were queen everything would be different"

Love and Friendship

I am part of a group of people who make and share cards through Paper Craft Planet. I have been making Valentine Day cards to send to them, and some to give to the kids at school. Here are few of the examples.





This last one has a wheel that turns giving a choice of many Valentine's quotes.

Valentines already

Tried out last month's Stamps of Life set, Hearts2diefor. Here is the result.
I think I will submit this to the 'Anything goes' challenge over at Little Miss Muffet.http://littlemissmuffetchallenges.blogspot.ca/2012/12/challenge-51-anything-goes.html?m=1

And 217 Creations for Pink by Design.

Black cat for luck?

When I posted a picture of my cards that I made last month on Facebook, a friend of mine asked, 'Where's my cat?'
I wasn't sure what she meant but today I set about making her a set of 6 cards using the image of a cat I purchased a good 18 years ago and have never used!!

I used a white card base 8x5.75 then ran it through my bigshot with an embossing folder, then I added a black cardstock piece 5.5x4.25 to the back. This allows my card to have the black background I want but not making the inside of the card black.
