Love is in the Air

I was so ready to leave the holidays behind and create a cheery Valentine's Day card.  Give me pink and red anytime!  I love the hot air balloon stamp by Simon Says Stamp/Pretty Pink Posh (Darling Friends), and knew it would work perfectly for my card.  I sponged the cloud background using a mask created from Lawn Fawn's cloud border die and Tumbled Glass distress ink.  The "love" is from the Peace, Joy, Love stamp set by Lawn Fawn, and I used Milo's ABC's for the rest of the sentiment.  The balloon and adorable mouse were colored with Copics and fussy cut since I don't own the dies.  The pattern paper is from Doodlebug's Sweethearts collection (an older pad I had on hand).

I hope you enjoy my card, and thanks for stopping by!

Winter is for the Birds

Here is the card I'm entering into Lawnscaping Challenge #121/Winter Wonderland.  This is the first challenge I've entered (it was about time, to say the least!)

I used the following stamp/die sets from Lawn Fawn:
Winter Penguin, Winter Sparrows, Milo's ABC's, Joy to the Woods, Snowy Backdrops, and Stitched Hillside dies.  All images were colored with Copic markers, and I added a bit of Icicle Stickles to the caps on the sparrow and the penguin.  Hope you enjoy my card, and thank you for visiting my blog.  I'm a newbie, as you can see!
