Good morning!  Oh my BADness,  too much time went by without me posting anything.  I got so sidetracked with the baby last week (a little fussy, a little sick and a whole lot spoiled) that I never made it into the studio for very long at any given time.

Two things today!  First, I have posted a Valentine’s Day card over the Quietfire Creations Blog.


To see more pictures and get all the details, you’ll need to visit the Quietfire Creations Blog.

Secondly!  Quietfire has announced the 4th Annual Queen of Hearts Challenge! Check it out while you’re over there . . . lots of prizes, a Blog Hop, awards . . . just a whole lot of fun!

So that it’s for me right now!  I’ve got a mixed media project in process and can’t wait to share it with you . . . hopefully within the next few days!


Project Supplies:

Whoa it’s Friday, and there is a new girl on the block! Hanna Stamps released a new Hanna today – SWEET CELEBRATIONS. Hanna is so sassy lookin’ with her new short hair and there are so many little elements in the set that they can all be used as the focus on a card. This is my last sample with the new set, and as you can see, no Hanna, just lips!

Jan Release - Lipstick

One day while visiting Anna Wight’s blog, Sassy and Sweet, she had a sketch that was fabulous, and I so had to try it. The lips were stamped and the edges were sponged with Fired Brick Distress Ink. The lips on the main image were covered with a Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze Pen (but it is very had to see in the photo). The sentiment is stamped on the inside of the card – Wearing long lasting lipstick is a must on Valentine’s Day.

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a great week so far and is looking forward to the weekend. I have a community service project tomorrow afternoon for Sorority and am looking forward to participating. We are boxing up items to send to our Service Men in Iraq. Of course, I still need to shop for some items, but I can get that done in the morning. If anyone has any ideas other than the typical books, magazines, toiletry items, please post a comment and let me know. One thing they requested was Ramen Noodles – we were all quite surprised, but after thinking about it, it did make sense. So anyhoo, I would love to have some other suggestions.

Yesterday I was able to get a few cards stamped just for fun and with my luck, none of them fit the Splitcoast Challenge today. One almost did, but I added just a few too many embellishments. Today’s Limited Supply Challenge is one embellishment or designer paper only. It is to only have one or two stamps – one of them a heart, and have limited layers.

You all know how much I love the new Way to Go by Gina K. Designs. Well an idea hit me this morning and I just had to RUN with it! There are just way too many possibilities with this set. I stamped the toilet bowl image and then stamped a heart. Colored them both with Copic Markers, cut a small slit in the water and slid the heart in. The sentiment, You Make My Heart Overflow, was typed on the computer (my specialty tool of choice) – hehe I just kill myself sometimes! Oh the joys of being BAD!
