Winter Wishes



I am back with another card kit.  I received the kits in January and I trying to get them all done in February. My goal for this card kit group this time around is to make two projects from every kit.  Every person who sends me a kit includes quite a few images--and many times there are a couple of different images included in each kit.  And, they senders are very generous in the papers and embellishments, so I can easily make two projects from each kit.   Wish me Luck on both counts! 

This is one of the two cards from kit #7, sent by Suzy. Suzy sent a fun kit with two different snowman images and some great sentiments.  She also included a bunch of great patterned papers and matching embellishments for me to use.  I hope I did OK and that Suzy likes my creations.  Thanks Bunches for a great kit Suzy!!!  My second card from Suzy's kit will be posted on Wednesday, so be sure to check it out.

Seven kits down--4 to go!  This group runs the entire year of 2017 and we have someone to send to every month, until December.





Here is the inside of my card:

Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black

Cardstock:  White; Stampin' Up Wild Wasabi, Perfect Plum, Island Indigo; Paper Studio Holiday Magic Patterned Paper

Unforgetable



It is February 15th of the month and that means I am showing you a new Dueling Darlings card.  For the February Challenge, Deb and Suzy decided on the theme--Valentines!  Deb is one of the Darlings and I am a part of the Diva team, which Suzy is on!  And--Suzy and Deb are sisters--more fun yet!

Suzy sent a cute Stampin' Up image along with some wonderful patterned papers and matching embellishments.   She also included some punched and die cut hearts, so I had to use those too!

Here is the inside of my card:


I hope all of the Darlings enjoy my card this month. Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month. 

There are a few members who do not have blogs:  Suzy and Terry S who both are on the Diva team, and Terry A, Paola and Debby who are Dazzlers.  You will be able to check out their creations in their SCS gallery, if you click on the link for their name.  All of the others should be found on my left sidebar.  I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful creations this month!

You Make Life Sweet


This is the card for the 30th round of the Unidentified Image swap on SCS.  It is a group of ladies who are a part of a bi-monthly swap where we all use the same image, sent to us by the hostess.  The unidentified part is that we are to not discuss the image at all until the day they are to be posted--that is today!   The image for this round were provided by Tracie.  She will swap the cards and include the next image that I, our next hostess, provide in our return envie.  And then we get to do it all again--for round #31--in February!

The image that Tracie sent is so darn cute.  I love many of the Two Paper Divas Images--too bad the store has closed.  I used my Spectrum Noir Glitter Pen on the Chocolate Coating and Crystal Effects on the Cherry on the top!


Here is the inside of my card:




If you check some of the other blogs listed on my sidebars, you may find some other swappers who have posted their creations today or in the next few days.  I hope Tracie and the others in this swap like my card!
