Valentine for Kids :-)

Hi all :-) how  are you today ? What's the weather like over there ?? tis pretty miserable here today, windy and very overcast,, but it could be worse :-)

I am here to share a couple of  fun Valentine's mini cards, made using the stamp set in the Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit and treat boxes, made using a Silhouette Studio cut file  :-)

Isn't this little monster the cutest !!  I stamped and masked the images and then used a Falling Hearts or Falling Hearts Stencil to create the background.  I added some glossy accents to their eyes and they do look quite googly :-)

Thanks for looking :-) Wishing you all a lovely day and a fab weekend :-)

Mama Elephant 'Up and Away'

Hi all :-) Tuesday and time for a new theme on the Papertake Weekly Challenge and as it is the last challenge of the month it is a Sketchy Free For All :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi and Co over at Simon Says Stamp so a fabulous $25 voucher on offer this week !! Woo Hoo !! 

Dawny has made a fabulous sketch for this challenge but if you prefer you can use any of the previous ones ,,, tis up to you :-) 

I used a super cute 'Up and Away' stamp set from Mama Elephant for my card.

I really enjoyed making this, the image is super cute and the coordinating dies are a joy to use, they have the die cutting right on the edge so you can see exactly what you are doing. I love the papers too, so bright and cheerful and a perfect antidote to these miserable winter days :-)

The card is pretty self explanatory, just to say that I used a Copic Air Brush to make the cloudy sky.

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
