Blue and Lime Nurse Card

Hello all!  I needed some crafting therapy time, so I decided to play along with the current My Favorite Things Challenges: Color #184 and Sketch #582.  This card was the result!
Products used include: MFT Call The Shots, MFT Superhero In Scrubs, hybrid black ink, VeraMark ink, white embossing powder, Artify Markers, Echo Park Paradise Beach 6x6 paper, Cottage Cutz stitched rounded rectangle die, corner chomper, GMD Sophisticated enamel dots, ATG, Bearly Art glue, and foam tape.  
P.S. I just realized this is the very first project I have posted to my blog all year so far that didn't have pink in it!  I love pink, but maybe I should be broadening my color palette a bit LOL!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Valentine's Day Card

Good morning and Happy Valentine's Day!  This morning my 3 year old daughter asked me to make her a Valentine's Day card.  I had given all the kids a small gift this morning, but apparantly she appreciates my cards more than I realized 😄.  Here is the result of that request...

Background paper is from Teresa Collins' Gold Glam 6x6 paper pad (a gift from Kendra...Thank you!!)  I added a die cut heart, then used MFT's All About You stamp set and die for the sentiment.  The stamping was done with VersaMark and heat embossed with gold.  The finishing touch was a trio of GMD New Years Sparkle enamel dots.  Adhesives used were ATG, Bearly Art precision glue, and foam tape.
I'm happy to report that my daughter loved her card!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Entering this card in the MFT WSC #580.

Trendy Bakers Twine~Love You Tag

Good morning!  I am on the Trendy Twine blog today with a mixed media tag that features our lime twine twists, Limeade and Totally Limeade.  It was a fun project to alter and add things to!

The back layer is a Sky Large Tag-it which had a trimmed down Pink Large Tag-It popped up with foam tape on top of it.  I took 1/4" off both sides of the pink tag and stamped the sentiment from APB Friendship stamp set in VersaFine Morning Mist ink before adhering it.  Next, I cut a piece of patterned paper, tore the top edge, and glued it to the pink tag.  Along each side of the pink tag, I adhered two lines of Limeade Trendy Twine with Bearly Art precision glue.  At the top of the tag, I added a Pink Midnight Trendy Page Dot, looped Limeade Trendy Twine through and added a bow of Totally Limeade Trendy Twine.  For extra fun, I glued Pink Diamonds Sparkling Gems in the shape of a heart on the patterned paper and also added a trio of them around the sentiment.  The final addition was crinkle seam binding at the bottom of the tag.

Here's what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

If you don't need full spools of the lime twines, you can grab the Limeade Sampler!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
