I'm Such A Slacker!!

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth! It seems like forever since I posted any cards on my blog. Sorry for the long delay! I've been busy this week with a sick daughter and a sick husband. Sick Husbands are worse than sick kids, don't you agree? My gosh they can't do anything for themselves! LOL

Tonight I have two cards to share.

I decided to take Deb's challenge and create a Valentine's Day Card. Deb posted this challenge to the Magnolia-Licious Yahoo Group. This Tilda stole my heart when I first saw her! She is the cutest.

I colored Tilda with Copic markers and used my Nestabilities Label One set to stamp the sentiment on. I added a couple of Prima flowers and brad and a piece of organza ribbon for embellishments. The DP is from DCWV.

I used a new stamp I purchased recently from Susanna. This is from the Shy Bear collection and I think he's just adorable!

I colored him with Copic markers. I placed some baubles on the four corners of the image that I punched with the ticket corner punch. I wanted to make this more of a masculine card because I'm going to send it to Kevin in Iraq. The hemp ribbon adds just a little more embellishment to the card. The DP is from a paper stack I got a Joann's but I can't remember who makes the paper! Sorry.

I'm working on a card using Bryony from Susanna's Faerie Song Arts Stamp Line. I finally used my new Shimmerz that I purchased from Susanna's store and will finish the card tomorrow night! I promise to share it with you when I'm finished.

Hope you all have had a great week. I'm looking forward to the weekend and getting my craft room set up!
