Nothing says I LOVE YOU like…My UN-Valentine…

Hey everyone,

Well, as you may remember, I might have mentioned in the last few weeks that I’m really not into Valentine’s Day.
I know, that sounds so utterly UN-romantic, but get to know me for about ten seconds and you’ll find that I’m actually quite the opposite! I LOVE little gestures, little moments to treasure here and there…I just don’t like it when Hallmark tells me I need to..hee hee.
To me, nothing says I love you like when DH does something for me for no reason…whether it’s brushing the snow off my car before he leaves for work or bringing home a box of Copics just because he heard me talking about it to a friend on the phone…more recently, my Big Shot diecutting machine…I have to admit, he sometimes even brings home a tape runner refill just because he knows I’m going to forget to buy one…
Or when my kids come up to me, completely unprompted and say “you’re my best fwend, Mommy”, or come up to me for a quick but sweet hug, and oh, how I love when they fall asleep on me while watching a movie…THAT to me is something that no holiday, no card even, can capture.

Anyway, this was the last of my UN-valentine’s cards this year, and I realized I hadnt’ yet shown it to you guys! I just ADORE this little Lily and Milo image by Rachelle Anne Miller, don’t you? I mean, could these blushing cutie pies BE any cuter? Don’t think so, right?

If you haven’t checked out the entirely AMAZING line of stamps designed by Rachelle Anne Miller, check out the Stampavie site and feast your eyes! There are so many adorable images…now if only the stamping fairy would come here and wave her magic wand and give me more time to stamp! Oh, and just WAIT…rumor has it there is a RIDICULOUSLY cute Spring Line coming very, very soon!

Alright, well, thanks for coming by today and now it’s time for a little game of “Finish the Sentence”. I want to know what YOU guys find most romantic in your own lives.

“NOTHING SAYS I LOVE YOU LIKE….” Well, what are you waiting for? Finish this sentence! I can’t wait to see what you say!

Hugs!
Jessica :)

Just ONE?

Good Morning, Prettie Peeps!

How are you all this Wednesday morning? Ugh we are a bunch of sickies…not fun. This is the nastiest cough I can remember having in a long time…and the poor kiddos sound even worse :( Will this EVER end? I know it’s nearing March, but it is DEFINITELY the heart of winter, still…in my book.

With that in mind, I decided to pull out my darling Gliding By Sophia from Paper Pretties for a few last laps around the ice that doesn’t seem to want to melt!

A few weeks ago, Jodi challenged us Prettie Girls to make a “Power of One” card…ONE layer, ONE embellie, ONE sentiment. Ok, can you say HARD? I am sooooooo not the one layer card girl! So this was especially challenging for me.

I embossed my cardstock with my squares to create at least a little variation in the stark, white, nothing-ness that I am SOOO not used to LOL!…and to create a nice frame for my pretty in pink Sophia. Added stickles as my embellie, wasn’t sure if that counted as a “real” embellie (what do you guys think hee hee?) and stamped the sentiment. Hey, at least this one will only cost me .42 to mail, right???

Be sure to check out what the other Prettie Girls challenged themselves to this week with the “power of one”…links on my sidebar.

Now, in OTHER exciting news: On Sunday March 1st, Paper Pretties will be having their monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party!! The party starts at 6pm CDT and will last until 9pm. We will be issuing a challenge every hour so be sure to come and play along!! Besides the challenges, chatter, and all around fun, we will also be releasing Bunny Hop Sopia to the public as well as a new stamp set!! Sneak peeks start on Friday, February 27th!! Hope to see you there!

Wanna be a Cutie Pie? Paper Pretties is having a release on the March 1st so that means it is time for another CUTIE PIE CONTEST!!!

Twinkling Tuesday: Sweet Inspiration…

Hey everyone!

It’s another Twinkling Tuesday here in blogland…and we have a sweet little twist for you today! The ever so talented Miss Madelynn (who just so happens to be my amazing DD) decided she would put her sketchbook down this week and give us another task this week…our very first INSPIRATION CHALLENGE!

She has been admiring this ADORABLE mug that I got for Christmas from my good friend Darla (check out her NEW blog!!! yay!) for SOME time now…and has recently learned (by seeing Mom do them, of course) what an inspiration challenge is. Hence, an idea was born :) So this week, the Twinkle Team got a fun new twist with this adorable little photo to inspire us! We hope you’ll want to play along, too!

I decided that Pretty Hat Anya from The Greeting Farm had to come out and play…Now, I have to tell you…I’m a LITTLE uneasy about cutting off the torsos of these little characters…it made me kinda nuts. But, in order to frame her the way I wanted to, I went w/ it and hope it turned out ok…hee hee.

Now, the bow is obvious…for those of you who own this set or have seen it, there are several options to embellish her hat, and the bow, for obvious reasons, had to be there :) I colored over it w/ a clear Spica pen although I took this at night so you can’t see it all that well. I went with the colors of cardstock that reminded me of this mug, a few shades of pink and just a hint or two of green. To finish it off, I had to have the swirly embossing folder because it reminded me of the swirly cupcake top. All in all, this was a much easier challenge for me than I had ORIGINALLY thought it would be…I think I just had one of those days where the mojo was, well, not missing…but hiding out for a while ;)

There are some really fun things going on for Twinkling Tuesday…check out the BLOG today! My awesome friend Jen is our featured stamper this week and she’ll be hanging out there and on her own blog. Be sure to stop by the other Twinklette’s blogs too, to see what they whipped up for this fun challenge.

Want to play, too? Leave us a comment on the TT blog and let us know you played! If you prefer to upload to SCS or PCP , just use keyword MTTSC11. Have fun with this one…it’s a sweet deal!

In other news, LOTS of fun stuff going on at The Greeting Farm and Club Anya. Our Team Anya DT call is well under way, and tomorrow we will be announcing another contest…this one is for the kids! In addition, we just wrapped up TWO contests over the weekend, one from TGF and one on the Club Anya blog and the prizes were a-plenty! How fun! Stick with us as we have a LOT of exciting stuff coming up in the next few weeks… you won’t want to miss out on ANY of it.

Marie had a sketch challenge this past week and I was happy that I could play along. I am really loving this Rock the Farm Anya set…I think she might be my favorite…only I can’t say that because I have too many favorite Anyas LOL! She is just TOO much fun to color with all the detail though on this stamp-especially on her little scarf. I had a blast creating this card for her sketch challenge that you can see HERE. The contest ended, but the TGF Galleria is always exploding with awesome ideas and cards so be sure to check it out!

Til tomorrow, everyone…have a VERY Twinkling Tuesday!

LPS Monday: Angels among us…

Happy Monday, everyone!

Today starts another fun sketch challenge over on the Little Paper Shop blog, so check it out when you can! Our new releases came out last week, and EVERYTHING in the store is 10% off from now through the 25th, so if you haven’t had a chance to order the new sets yet or have had your eye on something special, NOW is the time!

My card today features stamps from the new release, {Angels}, and this little angel is just too darn cute! I love being able to use stuff like Shimmerz and fun, chunky glitters, etc. to embellish her wings and the cute poofy cloud :) Today’s card was no exception; I used Shimmerz in…you guessed it…ANGEL WINGS to paint her wings. I then took my Martha Stewart chunky/coarse glitter with her brand of glue and shook a fair amount onto the cloud to give it a cool irridescent look.

The layout was simple as I chose to work with this week’s sketch, which you can also see on the LPS blog :) The Little Paper Shop is now doing weekly challenges, so check us out! There are prizes every once in a while, and lots of fun sketch, color, and maybe even an inspiration challenge or two along the way, so come, play with us!

While you’re at it, be sure to check out what the rest of our awesome DT ladies whipped up for this week’s LPS Monday:

I am going to give this card to my DH. Yes, it’s girly, but with as sick as we’ve all been this past few weeks-croup, colds, runny noses, icky tummies..you name it, we’ve had it, and he’s done all the errands and even some laundry! Heaven sent is right! Besides, he won’t care that it’s girly…he’s used to it…um, have you MET me? LOL!

Have a great week, everyone! Hugs to all,
Jess :)
