Heart Cards for My Little Valentines

Today I'm showing some Valentine cards I made for my grandson and my grandniece.  I used the same design, but the papers and colors are taylored one for a boy and one for a girl.  They, however, are not strictly kid cards - I could send them to any adult.  I hope my youngsters like them, and I hope you do too!

For my grandson:

For my grandniece:

The DP is from CTMH, but I don't know the names since I used scraps.  The red cardstock is Recollections.  The white cardstock, inks and stamps are CTMH.  The baker's twine and heart punch are Martha Stewart.

I'm entering these challenges: Addicted to CAS #5 - HEART,  Make it Monday - Anything Goes, and The PinkElephant - Hearts.

613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes #3

Hi!  At 613 Avenue Create we are announcing our winners of last week's challenge so pop on over to see if your name is there.  Our new challenge is posted - It's Time to Kraft. Just use kraft paper in your project.  We have some great DT inspiration.  My card uses Bugaboo's Sunbonnet Judge.  I have a friend in California who's a Superior Court judge, and this card is for her.  We've been friends for many years, having met in college.  We don't talk often, but when we do, we have a good time catching up on life and family.

Everything I used is from my stash.  My base is Kraft paper.  I used a CTMH sentiment. The sweet little judge is colored with Sharpies. I think she's so cute - I hope my friend likes her.

We want to see your projects - stop by our neighborhood and join in the fun!

New Challenge Blog - 613 Avenue Create

Good morning!  I'm part of a brand new challenge blog:  613 Avenue Create.  The theme this week is Anything Goes, and our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps.  Click over and see what the DT has created.  Be sure to play along with us and please become a follower!  The winner will receive 7 Bugaboo images of his/her choice. Here's my CAS card:

I love this little soccer playing boy - I think he's adorable.  Both my sons were soccer players. My youngest still plays occasionally.  My grandson also plays soccer, so this card is for him.  Everything is from my stash.  I colored his little face, shoes and the ball.  I also added grass to the image.  I popped up the sentiment from The Paper Company Studio Soccer stamp. The image is Bugaboo's AKV simple stick - soccer.  I can see myself using this image on scap pages also.

I am entering these challenges:  Catch the Bug Challenge Blog (Anything Goes) and Challenges 4 Everybody (Anything Goes).
