Although I *did* have 3 cards prepared for you, you will only see only 2 (and a half!) I have to laugh as this seems to be my week for silliness! I was putting the finishing touches my card and of course, fumbled a marker I was putting the lid back on and dropped it right smack in the middle of my card - on the image that I had just freshly colored and coated with glaze .... ack! :(











First my first card above, I made a 5 x 5 card using Kissy, Kissy. Sweet, huh? I am in love with my Doodle Around pack from DCWV and this Valentine shimmery dsp was a perfect match to this darling image. It was wonderful to color up! I paired it with a scrap of left over IMME, using a scallop edge punch to give it some definition. I hand-sewed the big button and ribbon together and then onto the card so it should stay put. For me, that's huge. Mom has the sewing gene, I have the crafting bug ;)



Next, I have an improvised card to show you since my "We got together like Cookies and Milk" image is now a marked up image. Hence, I give you ..... CUPCAKES! Can you believe I actually dreamed this one up? No .... not the cupcakes! The layout! ROFL!! I was in bed one night, jumped up and jotted it down and voila! I found these delish Love Me Do papers at my LSS and bought them all {that's the hard part about delish double sided papers! You NEED both sides!} The cupcake is called With a Cherry on Top and the sentiment is one that I just came up with an added ..... which says a lot.... I love me some cupcakes ;)










Lastly, this one from my little son, who does not like to color. In preschool, he hurries up and does his coloring so he can have the empty, reverse side of the paper do anything else with! He was sitting beside me making his own Milk & Cookies image "for my best mommy" - awww! Then he attached it to a piece of cardstock, glued down a pencil and said it was a card for me :) Is that not the sweetest!! And I just LOVE the card - all wonky, glue peeking out and all. It's PERFECTION :) and in case you were wondering, his "milk" is white puffy paints for t-shirts. Ingenious! And I humbly thank you because I had to add his beauty to the card line-up :) :::: proud mommy moment! ::::


Remember to keep on hopping - you just might be a big winner! TSM for stopping by today!



Blessings!
