"Crazy Love" on WOW Wednesday

There is a lot going on but not as much crafting as I would like. I've been trying to get my craft room back in order. Had to put up a 6ft table to have more flat surface to stack things while I try to organize. Makes for not much room to move around in!  I did manage over the holidays to make a few love cards and get them sent to along with other cards I had made to Operation Write Home by the December 31st deadline. Here's a couple.

The brown background is corrugated paper I got from my LSS Cat's Creations. The paper is Bo Bunny "Crazy Love" Valentine collection from last year. The image is a Unity Stamp that I colored using a black embossing pen, Memento pen and Liquid Pearls. The sentiment was already on the paper and from the collection of many diecuts.

I was so proud of how this card turned out that I showed it to Kennedy. Big mistake! She said "You make this for me?!" with excitement in her voice! My heart sunk! How do you explain that you have made a card for someone to give to their kid?! Well, I did the best I could and made a mental note to make another as close to this as I can to give to Kennedy for Valentines.

Here is the other card I made. I do have a 2 page layout in the making but I haven't completed it yet. I'll share it another time.

Don't forget its WOW Wednesday over at Cat's Creations Blog. Be sure to leave me a comment then head over to Cat's Blog to see other creations and leave them a comment too! One random commenter will be chosen. More comments means more chances to win!

Before I go...I leave you with a couple of pics from Christmas Day. We didn't have a "White Christmas" but it did snow! I felt rooked! Everyone else around us got enough to at least make a snowman! Not us! I was disappointed...for my Lil' Peanut of course :)

Here's my Lil' Peanut in what little snow we got!
She wasn't quite sure what to make of this cold, wet fluffy stuff!

Have a good one!

  4. Well of course Kennedy loved that penguin card! It's really cute as is the other one too. Can't believe you didn't get more snow than that. We had at least 3 inches and still had some on the ground 3 days later!!

    1. I didn't mean to mislead you into thinking my room is clean! HA! Far from it! It's in total disarray! I'm trying to get some sort of order back but it isn't accomplished yet! I MISS YOU! We MUST get together and do something whether it's creating or just having coffee! Thanks so much for visiting my place in cyber world!
