LOVEFEST2014C Hugs & Kisses

Hi all!  A quick post this morning!  I haven’t gotten very far with the Love Fest challenges this time around.  I’ve been extremely busy with preparations for a stamping get-together today with friends (including Michele & Cornelia), the kick-off event for our local Relay for Life and our PTA Art Show that I am chairing.  I’m really hoping to make it through the next week!

Today’s card is for Taylored Expressions’ Love Fest challenge, which was Doodle Do.

Doodling is not my strong suit, so I went with a little card (less area to fill or mess up! LOL).  I stamped my sweet jar from Hugs & Kisses in MFT Electric Red and added some x&o’s.  Around the edge I doodled with my Copic (not the best doodling tool) a heart and X border.  Of course, I had to make a coordinating envelope and had XO paper in my Doodlebug Lovebirds pack, which worked perfectly.

LOVEFEST2014B On Cloud Nine

Guess what?!  It’s snowing AGAIN!  Even with being from Wisconsin, I’m over the snow and winter.  On the upside, it has given my kids many hours of outdoor play and fun.  On the downside, there is no place to go with the snow anymore, I can’t see around the piles at the end of my driveway and streets are getting narrower by the day (and people are getting more & more ridiculous with their driving aggressions).  We are supposed to be in the 40s & 50s the end of this week, so I’m sure a bit will melt off, but then we’ll all be flooded.

I’m rather certain the only people On Cloud Nine about the snow are ski/snowboard enthusiasts.  I’m hoping to think spring with my card today for Stamping Bella’s Love Fest challenge.

Bright colors always make me think of spring.  I inked up this little Altee-tude image and made a little 4×4 card.  I paper pieced her hat with some really fun polka dot green paper from American Crafts.  Since the paper piecing covered up the flower a bit on her hat, I added in a flower button.  The sentiment is cut out on a PTI cloud.  Quick & simple!  Bright & springy!
