Some Valentine's Treats :)

Well we all had fun day yesterday!! My youngest son is in JK this year so this was his first year really experiencing Valentine's Day and he just had a blast. My two older boys loved it too and it was a fun night for all of us.

Before I went to bed on Thursday I left some little goodies out on the kitchen table so when they came down for Valentine's morning this is what they would see:

I made them each a card with their favourite colour heart on the front so that they would each know who's is who's and I had their favourite treats as well.

When I came down in the morning there was a beautiful card and some chocolates for me and then when my husband came home from work he brought me these beautiful roses and some new crafty things :)

We watched the movie Turbo with the kids and had some pizza for supper! It was a great day and a fun night this year :) If you would like to leave a comment in the comment section below I would love to know how you spent your Valentine's day this year!

A Masculine Valentine's Day Card

I just love Valentine's day, all the bright colours and the fun of it all. I start getting ready for Valentine's day by making some red and pink hearts for around the house, hanging up a banner that I made a couple of years ago and by making cards for the people in my life. 
I find it really easy making Valentine's day cards for all the  females in my life but it always a challenge for me to make a masculine card.
For some help I went and looked at the Mojo Monday site for a sketch I could use and I just loved the sketch that was for this weeks challenge.

Here is the card I made for my husband this year. I waited until now so that he wouldn't have a chance to see it before Valentin's day.

The red patterned paper is from Doodle Bug and the rest of the paper is Recollections. The black edges have been distressed and the red edges of the heart has been inked up with some Tim Holts Fire Brick Red distress ink. The heart and the tag was cut using my Cricut and my Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and the banner was cut with a Papertrey Ink die. The sentiment was stamped  with three little stamps from an Impression Obsession stamp set. 

At first I was worried that the card was a little too dark fro Valentine's day but I when I gave it to my husband he really loved it, so I was really glad :)

I hope that you are having a great Saturday!!!

Getting Ready for Valentines

Well this Friday is Valentine's Day and I have been getting some cards done over the last couple of weeks but today I got some little treat bags made for the girls in my church group and some colouring done for another card.

I decided to keep the treat bags simple this year but I just love how they turned out!!

I made 10 of these little treat bags for tonight. I cut out 10 tags and hearts from my Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge. I embossed the heart with my Culltbug folder Hugs and Kisses and then stamped the back with a My Pink Stamper stamp.
The girls were so excited when they saw them, which I just love :)

Earlier today I had a chance to get some colouring in, my son was home sick today so we had a very quiet day. A lot of Olympics on TV and some crafting time for me :)
My husband surprised me with the light pack of the Spectrum Noir markers so I had some fun breaking them out of their package and using
I downloaded this image from Tiddly Inks and I just love how it turned out.

I am hoping that I will have a chance to make a Valentines card with this cutie tomorrow.

Well I'm off to bed,

A Pretty Birthday Card

Well Christmas has come and gone and I just don't know where the time has gone!!! Life has kept me pretty busy over the last month or so since my last post, keeping up with my 3 busy boys to volunteering at their school and at my church.
I have been crafting but have not been sharing much, so I am hoping to get back into a posting routine, both here and on my YouTube channel.

I have been busy getting ready for valentines day by making some cards which I will begin to share over the next couple of days, but I have also been trying to create a little collection of birthday and thank you cards too.

Today's  card share is a cute little birthday card I created using one of my favourite stamps company Tiddly Inks.

This cute little image was coloured using my Spectrum Noir markers and was matted onto a frame I cut out with my Cricut and the Elegant Edges cartridge. The back ground paper is from a Designer K and Co. paper pack Wild Safron. The sentiment is from a Wild Rose stamp set:  Birthday Circles
I added some glitter around the edge of stamped area and some clear Wink of Stella to her bow!!(You can never go wrong with :))  The pretty little flowers were cut from a MFT rolled roes die and inked around the edge with some Victorian Velvet Distress ink.

I hope that you are having a great week!!
