Head Over Heels.

I wanted to make this card ages ago when Moxie Fab had a "playing card" challenge. At the time I was too busy with other things but the idea stayed in my head. Since it's loooooove day tomorrow it finally got done.
My hubby and I have big plans for Valentine's.
Make some popcorn and break open season three of Fringe.
The crazy thing is that I'm happier having a quiet night in than going out anywhere.

This card is meant to be flipped over. Then it reads like this...

For these challenges -
Crazy Challenge. VALENTINE'S
Craft Your Days Away. GET STITCHY WITH IT
Crafty Boots. VALENTINE'S
Exploring Cricut. SWEET/LOVE
My Cheri Crafts. LOVE IS IN THE AIR

Thanks for stopping by,


I've locked in on a craft show at the end of March so I figure I'd better start hittin' the Easter cards.
This one uses the sketch over at The Paper Variety and today is the last day to play along. I would have gotten it done faster but I became soooo involved with the Hunger Games books. Couldn't put them down!

Now that I'm back in the real world I also have a Love Day card that I hope to find the time to post later today or tomorrow.

Having Fun.

That's what these Valentine's cards were to!
They're for my daughter's grade 2 class. I first read about the scratch card technique about a year ago and have been waiting for a chance to use it. The "Around the House" challenge at Moxie Fab World was just the motivation I needed.
It's super easy to make. Two parts paint to one part dish detergent, spread it onto contact paper and let it dry. Then you can cut the strips to any size you need.

This is the front,

I put some kid approved jokes on the back, Valentine related,

A small piece of double sided tape holds the Popsicle stick in place yet allows it to easily peel off.

Also for these challenges -
Divas By Design. LOVE IS IN THE AIR
The Paper Shelter. BE MY VALENTINE
Sassy Cheryl's. VALENTINES
