More Saturday Inspiration ~ February!

February is the month of LOVE!  Are you ready?  If you have a sweetie or not Valentine's are for everyone that is good in your life... :)

I recently had a fence installed and during the installation my cable and my backyard neighbor's cable got cut... she was distraught by it and they fixed it the next morning... but I felt bad for her so I made her this cute Valentine from a kit CTMH sold in January!

The kit comes with prescored and cut boxes and I punched out this crooked square and added fancy edges... I stuck it with a glue dot and couldn't get it straight... so she got it a bit crooked!  lol  The real problem was I had embossed under it UPSIDE DOWN from the way the box sits when finished... so I covered my boo boo with another sentiment and still made it turn out wonky... oh well.. I laughed because I enjoyed making it and I hope she enjoyed it and one of the owl cards I focused on this week.. in my posts :)

Midweek my bff Pam came over and she made this card for her honey!
 The pictures were taken by her and came out a bit shiney but she made this heart embellishment with rose paper for the heart and glitter on the arrow.  Washi tape to the top and bottom .. then inside is this!
a cute 3D pop up card that says LOVE!  It was made from the Artiste cart you get from CTMH!  So stinking cute!  I can't wait for him to get it for Valentines and know she made it all herself ;)

As for me I have been piddling with the frame I started...
 Only the top is glued down... what do you think!???  This is a surprise I am hiding in the mess on my desk!  lol
 I fell in love with the doodle pop blue birds and wanted to give a nod to when we were brought together with the established heart... then I added some bling and a knot of red tulle thanks to Pammy!!!
Heads up on washi tape... it doesn't want to stick to mod podge... so I had to add some quick dry adhesive paper glue and it stuck perfect!  Yay for having the right tools!

Are you in a Valentines mood yet?  I sure am... gonna craft today??? I sure am ;)

Hope you are finding inspiration in my posts... I sure am!  lol
