Made this card for a friend who needed a hug this past week. This Magnolia Stamp was just perfect! I used an older sketch from The Sweet Shop. I love their sketches and like to use them even after the challenges are over. I am entering this card into the challenge at 7 kids College Fund for their Square challenge.

This is my 15 year old son's project. He decided he wanted to paint his playstation controller. He took the controller apart and painted it black. He then cut out a few shapes in vinyl using my Cricut. He attached the vinyl pieces to the controller and used them like a mask since he wanted those images to remain black. Next he painted the entire controller blue. When dry, he splatter painted with black and then removed the vinyl. He did put a clear top coat over the entire controller. It is really cool despite the poor pictures. The only help he had from his mom was for me to show him where I kept the vinyl and to show him which Cricut cartridge had the image he was looking for.
For my project I decided to use one of the images from Meljen's to put inside a photo snow globe that my kids gave to me. Doesn't this penguin look perfect in the snow globe? I also made a card using the folded frame technique. It is very simple to do and you can find the directions over at Splitcoast Stampers.
We would love for you to join us in this challenge. Simply link up your project to the Craft Us Crazy Challenge Blog for your chance to win a fabulous prize from Meljen's Designs.

For my card I used the Image "All That" from Kenny K. For my sentiment I chose to use the word I hear my teenagers say alot when they think they are being cool or when they are doing something others might think is weird. They just look right at you and say, "Jealous?"
We would love to have you join us for this challenge. Simply link up your project using Mr. Linky over at the Aud Sentiments challenge blog for your chance to win a great prize from Kenny K.

I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this digi image from Bugaboo Stamps. Isn't she a riot? This is my very last Valentines Day card for this year. Whew! Next I need to stock up on get well, sympathy, baby cards and masculine cards.
I hope everyone is having a fun Valentines day. I have just a few more Valentines to share. This is one of my favorite Magnolia Stamps (ok, ok, just about all the Magnolia stamps are my favorites. Ladybug Tilda is just perfect for Valentines day. I used two different color combos to make these cards. Usually, I don't like red and pink together but for Valentines day the combo is perfect

This is the Valentine I made for my 16 year old son. He proudly calls himself a NERD. He says he doesn't understand why some people say the word like it's a bad thing. I am pretty proud of my son. He maintains a high grade point average as well as participates in the following activities: marching band, symphonic band, plays in a trombone trio, tennis team, academic team, NHS, Smokebusters group, is a mentor for freshmen students, tutors in the mornings, spanish club treasurer, lectors at church, youth group at church, and does volunteer work. Whew! I'm tired just typing all of that! Anyway, I couldn't resist making him a Valentine that celebrates his inner nerdiness. I saw the word NERD spelled out this way using the periodic table and couldn't resist incorporating it into his card. I am entering this card into the weekly challenge on the Cricut Circle blog.

For my card I decided to do something a little different. There are lots of wonderful images at the Digi Doodle Shop that would be great for Valentines Day cards but I decided to use some of the word art that is available in the shop. This Bible verse is one of my favorites and is makes the perfect Valentine.
Inside of the card: I simply used a few of my scrap pieces to give the card a finished look.
Here is my project:
