This set is called Lots of Love and it has a nice variety of stamps in it, which include these two hearts with swirls and the XOXO, along with the word love, a mailbox with a letter coming out of it and then another fancy swirl with a flower (which you will see below). These little tiny Valentine's are only about 2 1/2 in x 1 inches and the envelopes I made with my sizzix die. I colored them, added a little bit of sparkle and some gems.
This second project for today is a little candy holder. The little heart here is made with the stamp set and I cut it out. The LOVE word is also a part of this little set. In addition to this set on this card I used my spellbinder nestabilities oval to cut out the middle oval, then I used my MS embossed heart border punch, my embossed heart and branches punches to add a little to the card.
Do you want to win this set? Leave a comment here on this post and tell me what you like most about Valentine's Day!

It really was a simple card to make, just stamp the image with permanent ink like Memento Tuxedo Black, and then use a sponge to the edges. I added the ribbon, felt, trim and tag and that was it. Oh, I forgot a little stickles to the edges for a little shimmer.
AND the GREAT NEWS is that 7kidscollege fund is now carrying these Stampers Anonymous sets! I had a horrible time trying to find them when I needed them, so hurry over and get them now because I am sure they will not last!
Here is a card that I made last year with another one of the Stamper's Anonymous sets as well! This one can be found in the holiday collection.

I will keep this short and sweet with my entry for the LPS and SSIC challenges this week. This card is what I call a very simple card but packs a wonderful punch of a message. I am so thankful for so many things and try day to day to use those blessings in the best way as possible and so this card has such a true meaning.
I hope you have a Blessed day and get to reap the benefits of your blessings and share with others. God Bless.
Misc: MS border punch

So last night had to get to workin on a card. I used the Friday sketch challenge to make this card. The image is one of cuteness, and I am sure you can all tell it is a CC design (Nora) that Kelly over at KLSNS sent to me. . She is ready for the cold weather we are getting here I will tell you. I colored her with my copic markers, mounted her on Cosmo Cricket papers that are all layered with SU papers. The punches are our favorite, MS snowflake and icicle borders. I spritzed the snowflakes with glimmer mist as well so they coordinated with the paper.
I hope you find it warmer by you- otherwise just dress up like Nora! LOL. Have a great day!

Today's card is one that I created with my SU paper and Verve Cross for the Verve November Challenge. The sketch did give me a little bit of a hard time and I went ahead and added the ribbon because I thought it looked too plain without it. And yes, that is crackled glass, that was our twist this week. I had not done it in some time and it really does take a few extra steps to do it but I like the outcome.
Should you want to do the crackled glass effect I used SU glaze embossing powder (or a UTEE product) and the versamark pad. I stamped/colored my image- cut my paper to the size I wanted it. I used the versamark and stamped it on my image making sure to get it totally covered- dipped in the glaze and then heat embossed it until it was completely shiny. I repeated these steps over 4x; so the glaze is very thick. I put it in the freezer for about 3 minutes and then I just shifted the image a bit to crack the glaze.
Have a great day! Heidi

Today's card is made for the Little Paper Shop Challenge, which was this sketch. I had the most trouble with this sketch- my circle barely shows, my rectangle is too big but then my diamond was not right- ugh......... is all that I can say! But I do like the colors- and the ornament sets/punch is so fun to use. So I hope you enjoy it.

Sorry today's post is so quick but I was up at 5:30 this morning (can you say CRAZY?) and so I am playing catch up. Have a great day!

Today's card I am showing you is for the KLSNS Snowflake Challenge as well as the Friday Sketcher Challenge. This image is a High Hopes image and I got it this last year and I just love it. I have 2 cats and I have on occasion found them in the tree peering out at me. I can't say they've hung on the branch like that but they are a little heavy for that. But lets say we do weight the tree down because of them.
I colored the image with my copic markers and then around the edges I just used a sponge to soften the stark white cardstock. I have gotten so I have been doing this alot and the air compressor works well for this too! I have also used the MS ornament punch and the branch punch on this card.
Just wanted to remind you that you can join the KLSNS Snowflake challenge and win a gift certificate and a stamp from Kelly so come on over and check it out. Plus you can use code NOV5 and get $5 off orders of $30 or more. And then of course, she is carrying the High Hopes now too.
I hope you all have a blessed Sunday!

This one is for the Stampin Sisters Challenge. We had to make a card that showed that God is with us all the time, even though we don't recognize him or acknowledge him. I know I have days that I don't seek him out- but I always know that he knows where I am and can find me, and tell me to get my act together.
Have a fabulous day!

Today's card I made using Mojo Monday sketch 110! I had fun with this one because I reached in and pulled out this designer paper and thought, "Ok, now make your card from this." So it ended up being a holiday card in a way but also a way to let someone know how thankful and blessed you are to have them in your life, which was my goal for the Sisters in Christ Challenge. It is simple and yet efficient! Thanks for stopping in today- hope to be back tomorrow!
