This is a thank you card that I made with some of the new toys I received from my sister in law, who is here visiting from the Netherlands. Her and my other sister in law, know how much I love to make cards, that she brought over a whole bunch of stuff for me to play with, 3d, 3d pyramid and parchment stuff. So I made this card using one of the images to say thanks for the lovely gift.
I won't be here again probably until next week sometime as the visitors are here for a week only as this is their second stop on wonderful trip. They started off in Miami to take a cruise to Jamaica and Barbados, now they are here and after they leave here they will be traveling to Iceland for a week before flying home.

Valentine for a baby

I was asked by a resident at the condo where I work If I could do a valentine for his grand daughter who is only a few weeks old. So this is the results of that request. I used the sketch from Stamping 411 this week, and the technique spotlight from Just Us Girls Challenge. I really like the way it turned out, and oh the challenge for the Friday Mashup is Valentine's day. So how about that 3 challenges in one card. Not something I'm known for that's for sure.
