Check out who made Top 5 at the Fantabulous Cricut "Love Is In The Air" challenge!  Check the cool blinkie I get too...woohoo!  I LOVE Top 5 honors because it means my item was chosen from the 134 entries as one of the 5 best.  That makes you want to run create more.

A 4 x 6 Art Exchange Project

An online art-swapping, paper-loving friend posted info. on Facebook today about a free 4" x 6" art swap in which she's participating.  I'm not sure I'll get around to this one but thought it might be a perfect project for my card-making friends to consider.  Hey, it's even pretty close to an A2 size card so you're bound to have envies around that will fit the project.  All you need to do is send in your work of art and a self-addressed stamped envelope...easy peasy!

Hmmm.  If I do this, I just might have fun making some sort of colorful collage.  If DH goes back to work next week, maybe I'll give it a go.  How about you?

One Last Valentine for 2012...SNIFF!

It is a very good thing I started my Valentines early this year.  As the day draws closer, I've not been able to get my mind back into the creative mode.  My DH has been having some health issues so he has been my focus.  My grandkids are actually gettingr store-bought cards....eeek!!  A first but I bet my 5 year granddaughter will love it for a change, so I don't feel so bad.  It's sorta like the child who wants a store-bought Halloween costume after sporting beautiful mommy-made ones!  Been there a few years back so I feel well prepared.

Here's the last of the cards I got made before chaos reigned in our house:

The Tilda was from a swap I participated in recently.  The lovely kraft/damask print and newsprint cardstock are from Canvas Corp.  The large red heart was cut with my Cricut.  Ribbon is my signature fav by May Arts.  The greeting inside the easel card was cut with Spellbinders and a coordinating stamp set.
I'm entering this is the following challenges:  
All That Scraps - Anything Goes, ends 2/14
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge -  - Use a Cricut Heart ends 2/12
