No kitten I'd love to be your Valentine

Here is the Stamp of the Month from Gerda Steiner which also happens to be a kitten which is just adorable.  For my card, I used a sentiment from TLC which I thought was just perfect.  I kept it fairly simple and just added a gem heart.

I go Bananas over you

Now I feel like I have to get going on making my Valentine cards especially when I just don't have as much time to make them as before.  Kris at Imagine That has wonderful pre-colored images which really helps to make putting cards together much quicker.  Here is one that I really like called Parfait Delights.

A little birthday a lot of happy

I need to replenish my stash of cards so I made a birthday card using a sentiment from TLC.  It is a card that I also made for the Day 2 of the Birthday Bash at Bugaboo.  I added Glossy Accent to the balloon.  I think this is a perfect card for a child with the adorable monkey.

Always and forever

I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted. I feel bad that I haven't been leaving comments on people's blogs.  Having a "real" job helps to pay the bills and is a must, but it really does interfere with my fun and crafting time.  Today I wanted to spend much of the day catching up on the computer and making some cards, but then I had church, brunch with my sister-in-law who I haven't seen in quite some time, laundry,  run some errands and here I am when I should be heading off to bed posting a card.  Can't complain about it then I will have less time to post.  Bugaboo is having it's 6th birthday party and I did want to participate in some of the fun.  So here is my card for "Wild Thing You Make My Heart Sing".  The sentiment is from TLC.  The big heart has Glossy Accent on it.
