A Love Pile!!

Hello everyone & Happy Wednesday!  I hope your week is going well for ya so far!  It is STILL freezing cold here and I HATE it, hee hee---where oh where is spring already!  My dogs go out and then turn around and look at me like they're saying "hey lady, if you're not going out then we shouldn't either", LOL!  I actually had the brilliant idea to take them for a walk last night at midnite (just about 1/4 mile) with my hubby to clear out the ickies & cobwebs from my brain and I must've been CRAZY!!  My face was frozen and I'm pretty sure the dogs weren't so thrilled with me either--hubby told me to pick a different way to clear my head next time that didn't require COLD, hee hee!  Oh well, we got some exercise & fresh air at least--but my neighbors (if they were up) now KNOW that we're NUTS, LMBO!!  They already think we're vampires since we stay up so late, but now they probably think we're aliens too :o)  So I hope you all are staying warm as well & lucky you if you actually get to live somewhere where there is no winter (boohoo to me)!


-Tonight is another Gina K Preview and I'm sharing some projects that feature a set that goes along with the Card Club Kit this month!  So stop by at 11 pm EST if you get a chance and hop along to all the other DT's fab creations, but it will be up tomorrow as well for a bit!

-7 Kids College Fund has a ton of new products in store!!  You can see all the new items HERE, but I'm so loving the ZVA Creations--those flourishes are awesome and of course they are bling-a-licious!  And those new Prima Butterflies--wow, beautiful I tell ya!  And check out Tab's Fundraiser Contest HERE as well--it's for a great cause!

-And I want to personally thank all of you who reached out to me the past couple of days--I appreciate your support, love & kindness!  It means the world to me to have your friendship, so thank you from the bottom of my heart!  I've been trying to email most of you back, but I'm still working on it :o)

New Pink Cat Studio Digi/Rubber Preview Day!!

Today Pink Cat Studio is previewing some of the new digi and rubber stamps that will be available for purchase tomorrow at the store right HERE!  They are HEART-tabulous I tell ya & super cute!  Today the DT is previewing some of these cuties for you so make sure and stop by the Store Blog HERE to see the DT's projects AND enter the FUN CONTEST that Melissa is having!!

For my projects I decided to use this digi stamp called "Lily & Billy in Heart Pile" cuz' it is MY MOST FAVE of the bunch this week, too cute! 

I colored this fab image "Lily & Billy in Heart Pile" with Copics and then added glitter and diamond glaze to the hearts and their clothes!  The layout is this week's Mojo Monday Challenge #120 which is a fun one to work with!  The papers I got last year and never used (story of my life, lol) from Studio 8 Papers, ribbon from Michaels and the sentiment (and yes I wanted the faded look to it, hee hee) is from PTI's "Around & About Sentiments".

One of my favorite things about digi stamps is the ability to re-size them or flip the image--makes it work wonderfully for all kinds of matching projects.  Here I took the same image and just printed it a bit smaller, cut some cs hearts with my Heart Nestabilities and layered the image on top of some pixie stix--these would be so cute for your child to hand out for Valentine's Day in their class and super easy to make too!  The back side is blank but you could stamp a to/from or lil' Valentine sentiment on it as well.

Now make sure and stop by the store HERE tomorrow to have a peek at all the new stamps (both rubber and digi) and stop by the Store Blog HERE to see the DT's fab projects and enter the fun "Name the Pixies" contest Melissa is having!!  I'll be back tomorrow with a fun Release Day project too---it's Valentine Purr-fect!!

Try It Out Tuesday #49--WELCOME Projects

Yes, I know I'm a day late & a dollar short, hee hee---but I wanted to share my Try It Out Tuesday Challenge #49 project for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design with you all!  I had challenged the DT to create a WELCOME project of some sort (welcome home, baby, dog, cat, neighbors, etc.) to welcome in the New Year!  I decided to use this un-inked (gasp) cutie pop image called "Baby Laundry" by Lockhart Stamp Co.--aren't those bitty baby clothes too cute!

I colored them with Copics and added some stickles for sparkle--the papers are from K&Co's "Itsy Bitsy" set!  I did some faux stitching cuz you know I don't actually sew if I can help it, lol and added some pearls, twill and buttons to finish it off!   A cute baby card for someone new in the world!

And if you haven't checked out the NEW Lockhart Stamp Collection, you're missing out so go HERE to see them all!

I'll see ya back here tonight with some Gina K previews--have a great day!

    I honestly don't think there's a warm place in the US right now! It was 37 degrees in South Florida this morning.

    I know what you mean about the dogs in the cold, too! My yorkie (only 5 pounds) looks at me like I'm crazy to ask her to go potty outside! Good thing we don't have snow...she would get lost in the snow! LOL

  25. How do you always have the perfect accessories for your cards!? Lovely as always. (and don't get me started on the cold, I live in Ohio, which is worse!)

  26. Love your cards and projects!♥
    Fab colors!



I appreciate all your lovely comments and taking the time to stop by! hugz,Suzanne
