Been pretty creative the last 2 days




I am so behind on stopping by all my SBS4 sisters' blogs this week. I usually check their blogs daily or every other day at least, but this past week (well . . . okay or two) have been pretty busy with work. I haven't gotten a chance to do the fun things I enjoy very much.



Yesterday and today I squeezed in some stampin' time though, hoping to win a free stamp set from GinaK Designs. There were 4 challenges after the release party on SCS Sunday night. They had to be done by 11 a.m. this morning. Well, I stayed up late last night and then worked off and on this morning while my work was loading to finish and upload these 2 cards and the first Valentine frappucino bottle you see below.



The first card was for Sketch #1 (hosted by Carolyn). I used the fishy friends stamp. I purchased this last year when Gina used to sell them separately. Now they come in sets. I thought with those big eyes staring at the girl fish . . . "I only have eyes for you" would look just right on here. One problem, it didn't all fit on the word window punch I already had punched out, so this is the shortened version with "I Only Have I's 4 U" on it. LOL (DH still thought it was cute). Little does he know, I am saving this one for our anniversary in July (if I remember where I put it by then *wink*).

This penguin card was for sketch #3 (hosted by Erika Martin). I really loved this sketch with almost a circle in the upper right hand corner, main image a little to the right of center and then the sentiment and accent across the bottom.



I used the penguin from the Sandy Claws set I purchased around Christmas time, colored him in with markers, layered him on some navy blue cs and after layering on DP, inked the edges of the card with ballet blue, stamped some snowflakes from the SU snowflake spot set, added a strip of DP near the bottom, stamped Celebrate the Magic! and accented with a clear button and sheer ribbon (which I thought was silver, but I think it is pink now that I look closer with it on some white paper).

This bottle was made for sketch #2 (hosted by Beth).
I only stamped the sentiment from Forever in my Heart,
and then used Penny Black stickers again. They are so quick and look so pretty. I just couldn't help myself. LOL












Then tonight in about 20-30 minutes, I finished two more of these little cuties to put goodies in for Valentine's day. I asked my DH to bring home some Kisses for me and some other candy that he and DS would like for Valentine's day. What does he bring home for them you ask? Fritos corn chips ---- Ack! Now how in the world would they look inside one of these bottles?! Not very good. So after the roads are cleared tomorrow, I need to get some kit kats or M and M's for DS and Reese's p-nut butter cups for DH. *sigh*









Anyway, hope you enjoy looking at my paper creations I made the past couple of days.

I had to laugh at the Fritos! Leave it to a man. I hate asking my dh to pick anything up.

Love all your creations. I think the little lion is particularly unique.
