Forever, You and Me

This is a card that I made some time ago.  My inspiration for the card came from a picture I saw of a bathroom scene complete with his and hers towels hanging on the wall. Isn't it great the things that kick our creative juices in to high gear?

For the front of my card I used:
Sweethearts - for the you & me cut
Every Day Paper Dolls - for the bathtub, bubbles and towels
Paper Pups - for the dog
George - for the "towel bar"

My "tiles" are 1" squares that I cut on my paper trimmer

For the inside of my card I used:
Home Decor - for the word Forever

Indie Art - for the lips

Unfortunately the lips don't show up very well in the picture, but they were cut from a shimmering card stock so as to give that appearance of lip gloss.

Falling In Love.....

Since today is one of those homebound days due to weather and a hubby with the flu I decided to sit down and do a little cardmaking before I began housework.  And even though I really need to get some birthday cards made I decided to do one for Valentine's Day.

For this card - which is a loose scraplifting of one I found on Pintrest - I used the cute little owls from Create a Critter 2 - both cut at two inches.  As you can see I positioned both of them on a rope of twine which I picked up during the after Christmas sales.  Because of my inside sentiment (which I'll show you momentarily) I wanted to position them so that it looks like one owl is "falling" in to the other owl.  Oh and the hearts that are scattered across my twine are also cut from CAC2. 

My background paper is called Lots of Love and is one I've had in my stash for years.  And that just goes to show you how much paper I have.  LOL

So about the inside of my card......I found this quote on Pintrest and I just fell in love with it.  (No pun intended.)  Knowing that I'd use it somewhere I pinned it to my Crafty Projects to Try board. 

The stamped sentiment on the outside of my card is from the Cardz TV Stamps set title "Snail Mail". 

And there you have my first official Valentine's Day card of 2014.  Stay tuned as I'm sure there will be more to come.
