I only have eyes for you



Hey everyone...
I was able to get into my craft room today and make some Valentine's cards... YEAH!!  
My granddaughter is colic so it has been tough to make it in.  Plus my daughter has taken over the craft room with her things!  
Anyway as always I'm inspired by all the blogs and challenges out there.  See below for the list of challenges.  

The sketch I used or started with is listed below but somehow I always go with something a bit different... but I did use it as a jumping off point.  the little birds just didn't seem to go where the sketch wanted it to...

This card I used my lawn fawn stamp set "science of love" and some old CTMH papers.  This stamp set is adorable!!!  Not sure why the pictures aren't turning out nice and clear... hmmm... need to look into this.  Here is the card...  


and of course, the challenges that inspired me...

My baby does crafts!!

The other day my baby girl came home and said
"I want to do crafts!"
I just about fell off my chair she hasn't wanted to do anything in my craft room except go in once in a while just to see me...
Pinterest gave her the inspiration to create this...
She made it for her room plus two other ones with chevrons.. boy she became so frustrated with making chevrons
I loved having her with me...  I love her so much! this just warms my heart
And some challenges I would love to enter her into:
613 avenue create - ATG with washi tape?  well maybe the regular tape will count.. lol

Make a splash!

some orange peel stickles added for some bling
and because I am inspired by other scrappers... here are the challenges that inspired me:
