Meet Me Poolside

Today I am playing in The Playdate Cafe. This week's challenge is colorsplash, but we get to use the color of our choice!  I have been wanting to use the Chillaxin' stamp set from Market Street Stamps for awhile and this gave me the perfect opportunity.  This stamp set is so much fun and they stamp really well!  I think I will be using it a lot in the future!  Well I hope everyone gets to meet someone poolside and cool off in this hot weather.  Enjoy!

Hugs and Kisses

Well it is time for another CAS-ual Fridays challenge and this one is another good one.  The theme is Sweets and Treats.  When I was thinking about what to do I started thinking about Hershey kisses.  Then I started thinking about some sentiments that would go with it, which brought me to some Valentine's sentiments.  Valentine's sentiments don't have to only be used for Valentine's day, do they?  I started out by trying to use foil to make the wrapper but thought it would be a lot easier if I just bought some Hershey's kisses and used the real wrapper.  A few Hershey's kisses and a stamped sentiment later and I had a very sweet card.  Hope you enjoy!

Owl Card #2

I have been waiting for the opportunity to make another owl card since I made this one awhile ago.  Since I made the last owl card there have been some new variations of the cute little owl for the Silhouette.  I love this owl's eyelashes!  She is so cute!  When they posted the new challenge for this week over at CAS-ual Fridays I knew exactly what I wanted to do!  Shaped cards are so much fun to make and I don't do them nearly enough so I had a great time with this one!  I used Versamark on the heart using a stamp from TPC Studios and the twine is from The Twinery. I think I will be making lots of variations of this card!
