Llama Love

llama-love

As soon as I saw this image in Dec at Imagine That Digi Stamps I had to have it. In 2002 my husband and I went to Exotic Animal Paradise in our jeep without the doors and top on. We had a blast…so did the animals! A Llama came up to my husbands side and started rubbing his head on my husband’s chest and trying to snuggle up to my husband. It was sooo cute! So I called it Llama Love! So I thought this image would make a perfect Valentine’s card for my hubby! I used this weeks MOJO Monday #484 sketch as my inspiration. I realize now I left off the horizontal strip but I think you can still tell it was inspired by the sketch.

This is another card the lady at work wanted. This one is for her granddaughter (almost 1) to give to her mom (the ladies daughter). She wanted a pig with this saying:
Love you little!
Love you BIG!
Love you just like a little PIG!!
Happy Valentine’s Day
(the ladies MIL use to say this to her daughter…so a family saying)

I put the saying inside the card and used this cute pig from Imagine That! Digi Stamp on the front. All the paper came from my scrap drawers! Yep, I have way to many scraps!!!I used Atlantic Hearts Sketch #198 for my inspiration.

So this is my 2nd attempt at the sketch category on the Feb Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. Got closer but still don’t have the strip with sentiment on it.

I got to use my brand new embossing folder I got for my birthday. I made up wish list at stores on internet and my husband picked from them. This one is from Taylored Expressions. I also got to use up Valentine scraps for the striped paper. My goal was to try to use up from my scraps and most of my Valentine Cards this year were made from scraps!! Happy Dance!

16 Birthday

Here is card #4 for the Imagine That….digis by Kris Customer Link Up Challenge. All you have to do is link up 10 cards with an Imagine That digi and you get a $6.00 code to the store!

I made this for my nieces sister who turned 16 a couple weeks ago. I was a bad aunt and forgot so just sent her this card.  She had a bad birthday week with her step-father passing so it was probably better that she gets it this week any way.

Beagle Christmas Sled

1 Comment

I’m always on the lookout for cute Beagle’s and Basset Hounds because there is a guy at work that has a standing order for his mom and aunt to get a card every holiday and birthday with a Beagle or Basset Hound on it. A lot of the time he finds photos on the internet and sends them to me so I can’t post them on my blog but this year his Aunt got a card made with a new digital stamp, Christmas Sled, from Imagine That!…Digis by Kris.

I was in such a hurry to get his order done I was only able to take a crappy photo of the original just to document what I made her this year (have to keep a record so I don’t duplicate over the years!) So I cut the left over paper so I could make another one and ended up cutting it for a rectangle card even though the original was a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 square card.  I decided to make it any way and then make a square one too! So now I have a couple cards ready for next years craft sale!
