My 2nd DT card!

I have had this card just sitting and waiting for my blog!!! I finished it Friday night while everyone was in bed and wanted to wake them up to look because I loved it so much!! It took me 40+ minutes to do all the stitching by hand!!!! Actually I was just trying to paper pierce it for another challenge but ended up sewing it instead! I bit off a lot with that idea!
There are some awesome cards for you all to take a look at! Dawn is also giving out a rak this week of a Prima flowers! Go take a look here! Well now to my card! I truly love this card & will be giving to Jack on Valentines Day!


This was a great sketch by Dawn! I will tell you though when I first saw it I was stumped! I did not know what I was going to do. I kept thinking I was just not DT material! I finally buckled down deciding to use my new owl stamps I had just got from Clear Dollar Stamps that day! Then played with idea's from there! And you can see the finished product!

Stamps : Clear Dollar stamp
Pencils: Prismacolor blended with baby oil
Ink: Stampin Up! & Sugarloaf
Heart brads: Rak
Ribbon: Joann's Essentials
Paper: Stampin Up!
Floss: DMC
Foam square (little owl): 3M
Corner punch: Marvy



I sure hope you all like it! I have to say I was very proud of my card! Please join us this week for a chance to win a great rak & do a marvelous sketch!

Okay I also wanted to do some challenges at CPS & Mother Daughter Creations! The CPS is a sketch and the MDC is to do paper piercing in an unusual way! I think I definitely got that one! This is a card for my hubby for Valentine's Day! Okay so here it is:

Paper: Stampin Up! & Bohemian
Chipboard: Making Memories
Glitter: Paper Crafting Collection
Paint: Making Memories (the heart)
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps (Moose is freebie this month) & Autumn leaves
Pencils: Prismacolor
Ribbon: Joann's Essentials
Lace border: Fiskar's
Ink: Pretty in Color (pigment) & Sugarloaf
Embossing Powder: Ranger
I did the paper piercing around the heart for the challenge to be different! Okay now you all have to be quiet and not tell James this is his card! LOL Oh yeah, to get the glitter to stay on I used hairspray!
I am still trying to learn how to watermark or put a copyright on my photos! I just don't get it but at least there is something on them! LOL
That is it for this post! Please make sure you check out Inspirational Card Sketches to see the wonderful cards & to try your hand at the sketch! Hugs!
