Oh Sweet Day!!

Hello and Happy Tuesday everyone! I'm typing this up the nite before, so my kids may or may not be home due to some nasty winter weather we're supposed to be getting. We've been pretty lucky here in VA as far as winter goes, just some sleet and cold air and nothing else. Which is just FINE by me---I am not a lover of winter or the cold at all! I'm looking forward to the greens and warmth of spring :o) So to move past the cold today, I'm sharing some SWEET cards w/ ya!

My first card today uses a sugary sweet set by H&M Stamp Co. called "Sweetly Stamped"--lots of fun images in this set. And today kicks off the H&M Garage Sale and all sets are on sale today & tomorrow for $5 or under. If you love this set it is now $4---a deal you cannot beat, but hurry cuz' they're flying off the shelves!! And as if that's not enuff' sugar to getcha' going, my DT sistah Carolina has some yummy blog candy to give away--a $20 gift card to H&M Stamps!

I paired it up with this yummo-licious dp by DCWV called appropriately "Sweet" (now 40% off at www.joann.com ). It has the cutest patterns in it, including a mini cupcake sheet that I cannot wait to use! This card also uses this week's "Try a New Technique-#202" on SCS which was to use glitter on your card using tacky tape. I layered 3 stripes of my red-line tacky tape on top of the blue striped dp and then poured pink glitter on top. I also made a frame around my image with diamond glaze and glitter too (can't be too sparkly ya know, lol). Some Basic Grey buttons finish it off!

Now this cutie is sweet of the cutie-patootie kind!! My friend Marti released a new line of stamps yesterday called Polka-Dot Pie (dontcha' love that name) including this image above that you can see at her store Pez-a-Doodle. I paired it up with this new fabulous dp from Basic Grey called "Bittersweet" (lovee it). I colored her with Copics to match the dp and then just layered. The corners and border were done with my Fiskars threading water punch--I love to make different corner brackets w/ my punches--makes them super versatile.

This close-up shows you all the Shimmerz (pink poinsettia) I used--really shimmery and fun! Although this is very Valentine-ish, I purposely left off a sentiment so it could be used for any occasion for a special lil' someone!!

See ya back here tomorrow!
