2 cards for today!!

One of the things that I've challenged myself to do this year is to make more cards without coloring {gasp}. Since I had my latest SU stamps from my last order at the stamp club I'm in (it was my hostess month!!) sitting on my table I thought I'd start today on that challenge.

I tell you what, my hat is off to those of you who create these type of cards often. I struggled and struggled and struggled with this!! I think it took me twice as long to create this simple card as it does when I color an image and put a card together! I do think it turned out well though and will continue to challenge myself.



Since I liked how this looked so much I decided to do another one almost the same~~ just with a colored image. I've always loved seeing the same stamps used on different cards to see the fun possibilities!



I admit that I really liked how this one turned out too! It was really fun to create these cards today. Looking forward to one more day off tomorrow to hopefully get a few more crafty things in!!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all and hope that whether you have a Valentine or not that it's a day full of love and happiness for you!!

If all else fails, add pink, sparkle and a butterfly!

You are a really good card maker and colour-er. Whether you have an image to colour or not, your cards are gorgeous! I wanted to lift you up and thank you for all the kind comments that you leave on my creations too. They have not gone unnoticed. Thank you for your support of my art work! Sending e-hugs,
