Finished February Cards

February is finishing up, and I am pleased with how many cards and layouts I finished!  I did have a little motivation — I am a member of Scrap, Craft and Chat over at Cafemom, and owners Gin and Christy have been fabulous with posting weekly challenges plus a bingo card with fun projects to complete through the month.  Oh, and did I mention there is a prize jackpot for one lucky winner?

Here are a few things I created:

My favorite card this month from a sketch challenge.
Another card sketch challenge
An ATC challenge that was themed “Family Game Night.” I don’t make many ATCs, but this was fun!

There were many other projects I completed; I’ll save them for another post!

Making the Man a Card …

Making a Valentines Day card can be so difficult for the man you love!  The right colors, the right saying — all to be perfect and memorable.

I got an idea for my man’s Valentine card this year from a challenge from a new group in Cafemom called Scrap Craft and Chat.  I don’t have the original sketch for you to see, but we were challenged to do a project with tags.  I decided to try an extra large card:

On each of the tags, I wrote one or two things that I really love about my guy.  Some were silly, some were loveable — but he loved it!
Tell me what you think – is it harder to buy or make a Valentine for your sweetie?  

Love the Lush!

One of my favorite albums that I did for a class at Scrapology was probably this pink Lush book in January!  It’s is more detailed that I usually do; I had a lot of elements on each page.  I loved the change of pace — I don’t get to play with pinks and fuchsias that much (I have boys and they wouldn’t appreciate that!)
