Love and Something Cute

Happy Friday All!

Here's to having a great day and a fabulous weekend! It's been a long week, so I'm really looking forward to some down time! Hope you have fun things planned.

Now on to my cards for the day...First, is my Just Magnolia creation for our challenge of Love this week. All you need to do to participate is get out one of your Magnolia stamps and create a love themed project.

For my card, I started with the sketch from Sketch Saturday and paired it with some BasicGrey Bittersweet papers. I colored this sweet Tilda with copics and then cut her out and sat her on my embossed center circle in front of the Magnolia envelope image. I've embellished with satin ribbon, cherry blossom flowers, and a heart charm and hemp twine.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Roses on Paper: Pink, Brown, and Cream
Cute Card Thursday: In the Name of Love
Lili of the Valley: Valentines
Delightful Sketches and Challenges: Love
Simon Says Stamp: Love

Next I have my card for the new Stamp Something challenge. This week the challenge is "Something Cute." We have a special week this week as Stamp Something is also participating in the new release blog hop for Wags 'n Whiskers stamps! Lacey from Wags kindly provided images for the SS DT to work with this week and they are really adorable!

I've used the new image Happy day created by Wags 'n Whiskers new artist Cris de Lara. I think she's darling and perfect for a sprint time/cheerful card! I've colored the image with copics and they added some stickles and white gel pen highlights. My papers are BasicGrey Sultry and I distressed the edges. I've embellished with flowers and a button with hemp twine and some brads.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Kaboodle Doodles: Spots and Stripes (there are stripes in the paper and faux gel pen dots)
Paper Play Challenges: Birthday for Someone Special
ABC Challenge: N is for New
Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge: To use Metal

Thanks so much for dropping on by today. I hope you have a fantastic day and a really nice weekend. Happy Stamping! :)
