Hi All & Happy Thursday! Another week almost over and thank goodness for that---I'm looking forward to doing NOTHING this weekend! No cleaning, no Xmas stuff putting away, no errands--just hangin around the house & lots of reading for me :o) It is actually gonna break 50 degrees on Saturday--whoah nelly-that's a heat wave for sure since it's been in the 10's & 20's for 2 months now! I might have to break out the shorts & suntan lotion for that, LMBO!!
I sure hope the weather is fine when I fly out to CA next week--I HATE flying (flying & claustrophobia are my 2 fears) and I hate it even more when it's nasty weather. My poor friend Marti has to put up with me, but I will have some sleepytime Dramamine in my system to keep me calm, lol! But other than the flying part, I'm really excited to go to CHA again this year--I had such a blast last year! If you're out at CHA and wanna meet me, I'll be at the Scor-Pal booth all day on Monday so stop by and say "HI" okay!! I'll be blogging of course while I'm gone, so make sure & stop by to see updates on all the new CHA stuff too!
Pink Cat Studio and I've got 2 fun projects to share with you! I ADORE this lil' panda stamp Melissa created called "Panda Holding Heart"--isn't he/she a cutie pie! I started to put this card together using this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #121 to make a Valentine card, but I got to thinking and it was calling out to a Baby Card :o) It still would make a fabulous Valentine card just by switching out the sentiment too. I'm not sure who the dp's are by since I dug them outta my scrap basket, but lil' Panda is colored with Copics and then I added diamond glaze to his heart, nose & eyes. The sentiment is a rub-on from SU, bow was made with the bow-easy and finished off with some pearls! Panda-licious I say!!
For my second project I used the same cute Panda but this one is called "Panda Holding Heart-BACK"! I've had a brand new package of large lollipop sticks cluttering up my desk for weeks, waiting patiently for me to use them, LOL! Well they got used finally, hee hee--I made these fun Valentines that would be fabulous Valentine favors, kid's Valentines or just a treat for your loved one (this one is for my hubby)! The hearts are cut-outs from my Nestabilities that I embossed with a few different CB embossing folders. The red cs was embossed with the CB folder "Candy Cane" and then I added stardust Stickles to the stripes. The sentiment is from the "Feeling Groovy" set from Verve Stamps. The backside of my Valentine holds a personal message to my hubby & a piece of Dove chocolate--I'll stick this in his briefcase on Valentine's Day before he leaves for work!!
