Happy 2009!

Don't you just love the start of a fresh new year? New opportunities for all!  I rang in the new year by making some more Valentine's cards.  I am really enjoying the Love You Much bundle the SU! is offering. The stamp, paper, and punch coordinate so well together!  

I don't think I've mentioned this, but my brother proposed to his girlfriend on Christmas Day (so our house is a-flutter with wedding plans!), so I made this card for the 2 of them as a congrats.  The birds are from the Love You Much set, and the sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.  I punched the hearts out of the dp, and then added them to the bottom of the main panel and stitched over them.  To make the oval the birds are sitting on, I cut an oval out of scrap paper, then used the negative part left after I punched the oval, and added ink with a dauber.  The flowers are prima, and the pearl stones in the center are from Kaisercraft.  This card uses Mojo Monday #55 sketch challenge.

This second card uses a set from the Holiday Mini called "Love Owl-ways".  I stamped and colored in the main images and cut them out with my nesties.  The heart border is created exactly like the hearts in my previous card.  I added stickles to the heart the owl and bird are holding for some glam. This card uses Mojo Monday #57 sketch challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
