A little Love Note

Hi Dawn T here to share my card today. 






Today's project is a mini card.... A7 (7.5cm x 5.75cm)


For my card I started by sponging some pink inks through a Hero Arts stencil (Swirl).  I then used a Hero Art  Stamp'n'Cut set (Yes DC132)  I used a dark pinky/purple ink and used the matching die to cut out. 

Thanks for visiting.  Hoping to see you join us for our challenge.

Hero Arts Love Potion # 9



February is the month of love.  
Well, I always think of it that way.
Hero Arts is our sponsor and I always have a wonderful time making cards with their products.



You won't believe how I came up with this idea.  I wanted to create a project using the "Enjoy the Journey".  I went to bed and woke up in the morning with the idea that the bottle looked like a flask, rather than the normal bottle.  Suddenly, Love Potion # 9 came to me.  Since it's about love and it's February, the month of love, I had to use red for the "flask".  You never know how you will come up with an idea.

Cup of Mouse!

Hi Dawn here....

can you believe it.... both Arlene and I chose to use this super cute Mouse in a Tea Cup for our samples.... the joy of card making is that two of us can use the same image and get something quite different,

I've used Prisma pencils to colour my little mouse in a cup.  I used a stitched rectangle die to cut it out and a large scallop for my matting. 

Do come and join us with your "Something New" projects this month.
