Triple Play for Valentine's Day

Good morning and happy Valentine's Day to you! Sorry I didn't have a post for you yesterday. I just got kind of lazy and even though I had a card, I just didn't feel like blogging! I spent a pretty lazy day just doing this and that around the house.

Did you take a look at the new images Squigglefly released yesterday? I just love them all! I did make a card yesterday using the new Sour Puss image. Vicki's Saturday Spotlight challenge is to use some household item on your card, so I used some tissue paper for my background instead of designer paper, and also I used some newspaper to make a paper flower.

I thought with the birdcage in the image that newspaper went well with it! LOL!
I colored with copic markers and chalk, and the sentiment is computer generated.

These next two cards are ones I made for the last two weeks for the Mothermark Tea Party challenge that takes place on Splitcoast Stampers every Tuesday. I just recently started trying to play in the tea party challenges and it is really a lot of fun.

You really need to know the tea party story for my cards to make sense, but I'm sharing them with you anyway. The first one uses High Steaks and Three Cat Pile up.

My second card uses Big Mama

Both cards have been colored with copic markers and the words are computer generated.

If you've been wondering what happened to Melissa's guest artist project on Friday, Melissa is having computer problems and will get her project posted as soon as she can. In the mean time, you can always check out her fabulous project from last week!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, and as always thanks for looking!

all of the cards are wonderful. But my fave is the one with 3 cat pile up. That is really cute.

Our snow is gone already. And that's OK with me. I'm not a snow lover like you are. Too many years of driving to work every morning is the stuff.

Good morning a Hapyy Valentine's Day! Yes, indeed, sometimes just hanging about the house is the only thing to do. Helps recharge our batteries, I think. Love all three cards ---- that tongue-in-cheek humor-- :-)!!!! I am off to check out the new releases. Have a great day!

Vicki said...

Good morning Holly and Happy Valentine's Day to you! I love your cards today and the sentiments just make them what they are! You are so good at creating sentiments to go with your images! Both the Tea Party ones are hilarious!

Fantastic cards Holly. I have been feeling pretty lazy too. You get a lot more done when you are lazy then I do. I only made two cards. I did clean my craft area and made a video of it but I can't get it on my post. Can you direct me where I can find out how to do that?
Happy Valentine's Day

These are ALL too cute! The "Sour Puss" one would be perfect around my house! Batman is forever trying to reach up to get one of the birds that visit us everyday! He's such a sour puss! Using the tissue paper and newspaper was a very clever idea! LOVE that flower! :) I LOVE the design of the second one...great how you combined the images and stamped the trees! And the sentiment on "Big Mama's" is priceless! FABULOUS sketch too! You have been one busy lady! :)

I just love that kitty with attitude, I'm sure I have it, I must dig it out again. The kitty in the cages just makes me break out in a smile, that card would cheer anyone up for any occasion.
