Does the groundhog really know?

Well, it's snowing again, here in the midwest. Does anyone know if the groundhog is really correct about 6 more weeks of winter? Brr.....Well, I guess it's a good day to blog and craft. Here is a little card I made in honor of Ground Hog Day.

This is a free digital image that I got somewhere on blog land. Thanks for stopping by today. Keep warm.

Out of Africa

Here is a card I sent to my daughter for the fun of it.

 My daughter and son-in-law spent 5 months in Africa last year doing research and working with the school district and villages in  Lilongwi, Malawi. I know they went on a safari while they were there and saw many elephants.  So, I used stamps from Close to My Heart, to try to recreate the scene. These stamps from several CTMH sets, but it is fun to put bits and pieces together to see what I can create. I fussy cut the elephants out and popped up the front one.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great day.

Forget About the Cake

Just a quick post today for some little cards I made after watching two videos on using watercolor pencils and one layer cards. Not sure I am a one layer person, so the washi tape appeared to add a little touch of color. I have a stamp set from the Cat's Pajamas called Forget About the Cake. I tried a new technique and layout of inserting the words within a black lined box. I guess you can make the box whatever color, but I chose black.

                                     So here are the two cards I made. One feminine

                                                     and one a little masculine.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.

Buford is back

Hi, thanks for dropping in to peek at my blog. I don't know if the flu bug hit in your area, but I needed masculine "get well" card, so Buford came to the rescue. I love playing with Buford Feels Poorly from Great Impressions.  He is so easy to do paper piecing and it looks great in so many colors. I also used the sentiment " Need some TLC?" from Great Impressions.

The Monthy Challenge at Great Impressions is to have a heart somewhere on your card.  Well, I used this darling paper from MME, Love Me, with the tiny hearts for Buford's blanket and on the soles of his feet.  I wanted to make this card more masculine, so I went with the blue and brown theme.

Well, that is my Buford card for today. Have a great day and stay healthy.
