Spilling Over - March Stash

Hello my friends. I hope you are having a great day and the weather isn't being too mean to you. I don't know what Phil was thinking when he said we would have an early Spring. Clearly, he wasn't thinking straight.

Today I have my card for the March Challenge Your Stash challenge.  Each month one of the members posts a challenge theme for us. This month our hostess was Shelly (mcschmidty on SCS). Her challenge was for us to make a card and use a  heart and the word LOVE on it.

I am in another group on SCS that swaps card kits (Card Shower). Each month one member is the recipient and all the other members send her a card kit with images and lots of goodies to make at least one card. I was the lucky one to be the recipient in January and got a ton of card kits in the mail. This is one of them that I got from Arlene Lacy (arlene_C on SCS).

Materials Used:
  • Image - The Craft Lounge - Spilling Over
  • Sentiment - LOVE die cut
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Pink Pirouette
  • Designer paper - Echo Park
  • Accessories - heart brad and ribbon
  • Copic Markers - E40, E41, E42; R29, R39, R50, R81, R83, and 85

Stay Warm and Feel Cozy - CCC

Hello my friends. I hope you are having a great day. Not sure how to classify mine. I'm home from work today - not sick. I'm having a new A/C & furnace installed. My old one is 20 years old! How time flies. At least I can get some things done around the house while I'm here.

Today I have a card from the Creative Card Chicks on SCS. It's a group where each month one of us is hostess and sends a card kit out to the others in the group. This month it was Barb's turn and she sent us a fun Winter kit. Thanks for the fun kit Barb.

Barb sent this cute Unity stamp - Stay Warm & Feel Cozy stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black stamped on Recollections 110# cardstock. I used Stampin Up Real Red for the card base and mats. The paper is from Echo Park - A Perfect Winter  - Welcome Winter/Snowy Stripes. I added a Memory Box - Frosty Border die. I also used some Frantage Chunky White Embossing Powder from Stampendous to mimic snowflakes.

The image was colored with Copic Markers - B000; E44, E47, E49; R46, R56, R59, T10.

Thanks for stopping by.
