Happy President's Day!

The kids are happy to have a long weekend, and I'm glad to be cozy in my home during this snowy weather we're having. We had some warm weather last week, and I was excited when most all of our snow melted. But...now it's is looking pretty wintry around here once again. Oh well...that is to be expected, since it is only February.

I was able to make a couple of cards with some of my new stamps, and that always makes me feel happier. ☺

My first card is using a Lizzie Anne Designs Sketch from last month (thanks Kendra), and I really like the simplicity of it! I love that pretty lace image from the new Timeless Textures Sixlets set. It's very realistic-looking, and great to know I can now have lace in every shade of ink that I own *wink*.

Stamps: Timeless Textures, Everyday Sayings (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: River Rock, Cherry Cobbler, Hopscotch (K & Company)
Ink: Onyx Black VersaFine
Accessories: Beautiful Blooms II #1 dies (PTI), Making Memories Brads, Word Window Punch (SU), Foam Tape


This next card is a lot of fun, and uses the new Tweens & Teens Little Bits set. I played around with the sentiment by only inking up the "Rock" part of the "You Rock", then I inked only the "O", then inked up the "U" and stamped upside-down for the "N". I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to help with placement.

I love the colors, flowers and lace on the first card, Rose Ann, but the Ipod image on the second is my favorite!!! I need that set for all my Grands birthday cards!!!!

Wow! I would never guess the "Rock On" sentiment didn't come that way. Way to get the most of your stamps! I do love the sweet and simple design of your first card, too. The lace really does look real!
