Valentine’s for a Secret Pal/Secret Sister

Inside: Happy Valentine’s Day!   Guess who?

When I saw this adorable image was the January Digi of the Month at Deedee’s Digis I was so happy I played last month….because that meant I got it free! I thought this would make a cute Valentine card for a secret pal/secret sister.  Which I have a standing order with one of the ladies at the retirement home to make a secret pal card for each holiday so I’m always on the lookout for good images that can be used! I wanted it to have a Valentine feel without it being too lovey.  I used the color version then used the outline version to paper piece the blue part of the hat and sweater. I wanted the cream color to be the main color instead of white so I cut the snow out and only left a little on the mailbox. And with all the cold weather and snow we are having lately we just might have snow covered mailboxes for Valentine’s Day! I used i {heart} card sketches #51 as my inspiration (I love her sketches!). I think her secret pal is a female but I think with these colors it could go either to a female or male.

And you know you have way too much cardstock when the patterned paper states it matches 4 Bazzill Cardstocks and I had everyone of them!! I actually think that is being well prepared!

CHALLENGES:

1) Deedee’s Digis January Digi of the Month Challenge – Use the image provided and get next month image FREE!

2) Crafty Creations Challenge #255 – Seasonal (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) – I went with winter with the snow on mailbox, sweater and stocking cap!

3) Jan Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Theme – Love

4) Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge #162 – Spots and Dots. I hope mine counts as I think Spots and Dots are the same thing.

5) i {heart} card sketches #51 –  use the sketch as inspiration.

December Card Class

Leave a comment

I have already shown 2 cards we made in card class but here are the other 2 cards.

Joy to the World

This is a card I did for the card class I teach. I wanted an angel Christmas card so I asked my wonderful husband to draw me an angel and this is what he came up with! He designed it after our niece Kailee. I picked the colors and then made the card around the angel.

Challenge:
1) Dec Card Challenge – Favorites Category. I used Deconstructed Sketch #129 that I had saved in my favorites.

SantaReindeer

This is one of the cards that I designed for the card class I teach. I used a paper pack from Hobby Lobby for the Santa Image.
The design was inspired by a sketch and card that are very similar.
Dec Card Sketch Challenge – sketch #3
and a card I found on etsy that I saved in my favorites. http://www.etsy.com/listing/115461831/happy-birthday-card-masculine-birthday
