Operation write home Valentine's Day cards!

Some Valentine's Day cards that will be sent to Operation Write Home. I think the deadline for Valentine's Day is early Jan. I am so happy not to be making Christmas cards, tags, etc.... It is nice to have another holiday to focus on!! The top card hearts (invoke arts) and letters (stampin up). The middle card wings (tim holtz) and sentiment and heart (invoke arts). The bottom cards is my card based on some new papertrey stamps. I have not purchased the stamps since I am suppose to be saving for vacation. So I found some circus type fonts and the web and made a background paper. The heart is also a font that I enlarged for this card.

Well it has finally snowed here in southern MI and finally looking like Christmas. Here is a couple of pictures that I took with my new Nikon D5000! It is a Christmas present that I got early, so I could figure out how to use it for Christmas. We I can at least take a picture with the new toy. Now I just need to figure out all of settings ans different options. I think I need to take a class. Brigg's is so happy it has snowed!

Easy bake oven recipe book

I made this recipe book for my niece Anna. I bought her an easy bake oven for Christmas. The oven comes with two mixes and then I bought her 3 other packages. Boy are the pre-made packages expensive (for what they are!) I searched for easy bake oven recipes and found some! So I decided to make a first recipe book to go with her oven. So loves to help cook, so I think she will enjoy. Front cover- all cosmo cricket pattern paper and elements except for the letter.
Inside cover and the printed recipe cards. I copied them from the site: and put the text into corel draw. I changed the font and the format.

This is the back cover.

Kitchen Sink and Lucy Challenge

I do not normally combine challenge cards. I tend to lose focus, so I design one theme at a time. For some reason this kind of fell together for two challenges. One for the everything but the kitchen sink challenge of using tooth picks in a card. The other is for Lucy's challenge of wings and strings. Thanks for looking!
Materials used spellbinders die cuts, buttons, tooth picks, pattern paper, martha stewart string and starving artist stamps.
