From The Heart Stamps January Image

Well if you know me, you know I have a fondness for those yellow kitties.  Only because I have 2 spoiled ones at home.  I loved the January image over at From The Heart Digital Stamps.  This is such a fun challenge blog because if you enter you receive the freebie for next month.  I really like all their digital stamps.
The heart circle die is from MFT and the paper is Lost & Round by Jen Allyson.  Isn't it adorable.  The sentiment is from Two Paper Divas called Mason Jar Fillers 2.  Notice my wonderful watermark also.  My friend, Vickie, made this for me.  I just love it.

I also decided to use the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches  because it fit perfectly with what I wanted to do.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

It's that time again.  Time for another challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  I really like the challenge today because I finally got to use my Martha Stewart paper tape that I have had sitting in a drawer. The challenge today was to use Washi tape or paper tape in your creation.  You will notice the striped background in my card is all paper tape.  The package came with 4 different designs so I just taped all 4 on the background. 

The twist of the challenge was to use something that begins with TAPE.  Well lets see
T = Twisted Roses from MFT
A = Aqua tape
P = Pearls
E = Everyday Sentiments from Two Paper Divas


What fun this challenge was.  Give it a try and see what all the other designers came up with.

FTHS Challenge 49

I sure have been having fun with the digital stamps I purchased through "From the Heart Digital Stamps".  Just adorable.  You get $1 coupon just for playing along each week.  Their sketches always inspire me. 
Here is the sketch for this week.  I used their stamp of the month called Kitten and Heart.  I thought this would be the perfect time to get started on my valentine cards.  February 14 will be here before you know it.
The paper is from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is from Two Paper Divas. This kitty reminds me of my 2 orange cats I have.  Hope everyone has a great week.   Check out some of the other creations for sketch 49.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Time again for another challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  The challenge today was to use 3 different manufacturers in your design and the twist was to use arrows.  I started with the image from Penny Black called "Sweet Thing" and colored it with my copic markers.  The arrows are from a Stampin Up Stamp set called Show and Tell 2.  The sentiment is from Two Paper Divas set called "Got Cake".  I added some pink and white twine, pink button and some pink pearls.


Be sure and check out the other posts from the design team of Twisted Tuesday Challenges.
