Love and History

The coolest thing about the month of February for me is the celebration of Black History and it is also the month dedicated to those we love. This is the month when you discover that you are loved and there are those whom you love. This is a really special month and love is in the air.

I am excited to share my little cards I created to celebrate Valentine's Day and to remember the unconditional love that my furr-baby gave me each and every day of her 17 years of life.  So here are my cards:



For this card I had to bring out some stamps from my stash that I hadn't used in over a year. The image and greeting is by Tim Holtz "Crazy Dogs" collection. I colored this little cutie using my Copic markers and Spica pens. The paper I found at Joann's and I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the banner, as well as a EK Success punch for the hearts. I just love the look this dog has with the wagging tail. I coordinated an envelope and it is ready for that special someone.

Would like to enter in the following challenges:

Polkadoodles - Wk 6 Challenge "Anything Goes" (22)
Southern Girls Challenge - Anything Goes  (6)
Crafty Creations - #406 Anything Goes  (44)
The Card Concept - #128 Be Mine/Valentine (12)



Do you remember "Crazy Birds" by Tim Holtz?  These birds have come in handy for creating fun and humorous cards and if you purchased the coordinating accessory stamps, you could create a humor card for any event. I have forgotten who made the heart banner die but I used it to add to the SB Circle I used to break up the dots. The birds were colored with copic markers and popped them up over the greeting. I carried the theme to the inside and used scraps to coordinate the envelope.

Would like to enter the following challenges:

Sending hugs from Texas

These are fantastic and sure to bring smiles to the faces of the recipients. The crazy birds remind me of an old married couple having a conversation under the clothesline!!
