My Pink Stamper-My Pinkalicious Blog Hop Friday (February)

Hi everyone! 

I have never participated in a challenge, but I really wanted to make my mom something special for Valentine's Day. This will be the first time in 57 years that she is without my dad and I know it's going to be a tough one.  I was going to make her a card and use Robyn's Spanish stamps, but I decided to make her a picture frame.  She is a great-grandmother to three adorable babies.  My sister's sons both have kids and that's where this frame comes in. 

I used my gypsy for the very first time.  Yay for me!  I used a wood unfinished frame from Michael's ($1).  I cut the letters at 1.5" and used Blacketter for the small letters and Gypsy Font Monogram for the capital letters.  The paper is certainly celery by Stampin Up and the pink is paper I picked up at Joann's.  The little swirls are pink stickles.  It looked kind of empty to me, so I added more glitter.  It says "Mis Bisnietos" which is "My Great-grandkids" in Spanish.  I really hope she likes it. I might add a ribbon to the top for her to hang it on the wall if she prefers.  (I think it looks better in person than in the picture).

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

Simple Valentine's Day card

I decided to keep making Valentine's Day cards. They have really helped reduce my stress level.  I used the Sweethearts cartridge and cut the images at 3 1/2".  I embossed it with the floral cuttlebug folder and used gel pens to trace the image and add a little stitching to to one of the hearts.  It was cute.

Project 2011 - End of January accounting

I did it!  If you've been visiting my blog at all this month, you will see how busy I've been making great cards.  Guess what?  NOT ONE trip to any store.  Not even one.  Everything you've seen here has been created by using my stash.  I've even pulled out some of my stamps and tried to learn new things.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, head over to Denise's blog for details on how you can join us!  Visit Project 2011 Scrap Our Stash

One huge confession - this is huge.  I got a gypsy. was a great deal on ebay that I couldn't pass up. Now...if I could just learn to use it.  :)

Have a great day everyone.  Stay tuned.  More Valentine's cards coming.
