How About Some Artwork?

While I was waiting for one conversion to take place this weekend (which took a hugely long amount of time) I decided to use the wait time productively and went out to my craft room. Here are the things I completed. Enjoy!

Kathi posted a card after seeing a version of it in Papercrafts magazine. Now I get that mag and I honestly didn't remember seeing the card. I looked again and found her inspiration card. This is my version of the same card. I used Die Cuts With a View blue textured cardstock, buttons from Walmart, Ribbon from Michaels, Souffle white pen. I pierced holes for the stem and added the white ink for the faux stitching. I cut the 1 1/2 inch scallop circles on my Cricut using the Mini Monograms cartridge. The 'thinking of you' is from a dollar set I found at Micheals.

This next project was found on a blog. I cannot for the life of me remember which one. I'll find it and edit this post with the name. Anyway, it's pretty cute and oh so easy! It's pretty self explanatory too. When I edit this, I'll add the dimensions for you as well. It holds 6 Hershey's kisses. The heart stamp is one I got recently at Archiver's (sorry, Kathi). I even embossed a circle stitching using my cuttlebug and embossing folder.

Kathi always inspires me. Here's my version of a card she had posted on her blog. Be mine is from Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages set

Another blog inkspiration (love this word...from Kathi) that will have to be updated.
Well, I probably shouldn't be posting artwork if I don't have all the credits ready, huh? Oh well. Check back tomorrow and I'm sure I'll have added the pertinent info.
This will be my last post for today.
Thanks for visiting! I hope you find time to create today.

Jeanne your creations tempt me to try something more than just layouts. I love the cards and bags and think I might make my own valentine day cards this year (I hope you don't mind me scraplifting some of your work)

Ok, I know... I can CHOOSE for myself to be good or bad... LOL

I think the halo is slipping...

Is there a "Be Mine" stamp in that Mixed Messages set? Guess I better get my bifocals out. I have a heck of a time reading those little buggers. I love all your cards 'cept you make my cards better than me! Your apologies are accepted for the Archivers stamp. Seriously, everything is awesome. Get those taxes done so you can have some more fun!
