As you can see I am still loving the pink and black color combination. It's also my way of using some of my newly acquired Valentine's paper scraps. I have a drawer full of scraps and am trying my best to not add many more and am still working on using up the rest.

Speaking of using, I finally used one of my impulse buy know the one that you aren't sure what you're going to do with it but have too have? I have to say that it works great with paper clips.

Digital Tuesday Challenge

Happy Tuesday! For this week's Digital Tuesday Challenge we are asking you to follow the sketch listed below. And what a fun sketch it is too. As always you can create anything you like, just be sure to use something digital on your project, this can be your image, sentiment, paper etc. and follow the sketch. You may rotate or flip it to fit your needs, as long as the given sketch is still recognizable.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Stamp Fairy and the winner gets to choose 3 digistamps from their store. Be sure to check them out. I used the Thank You image that Stamp Fairy generously allowed the DT to use this week.

As you can see I am always in the mood for Valentine's Day projects. If I could only embrace Christmas cards even half as much.

I used the Words of Love Colored Set from The Cutting Cafe for this one. There is a great variety of images and papers in this one. The Cutting Cafe items are: Circle sentiment, pink plaid paper and the words of love paper. Absolutely adorable and so much fun to mix and match.

If you haven't been to the Cafe lately you should really check it out. Regina has two fun Animal and Bugs sets that are simply adorable. I will definitely have to come up with some cute projects for my daughter's classmates.

Boys at Play

If you are a fan of the printable stamps from The Cutting Cafe then you are in for a real treat. Especially if you make boy oriented scrapbook pages or cards. I have two girls but couldn't resist using these fun sentiments.To help you identify which set it was from I listed out each sentiment and listed which set it came from. I may have gone a little overboard with all the different views of the page but I really wanted to showcase the wonderful printable sets that I used from The Cutting Cafe.

Will you be my Valentine?

It's time to start spreading the LOVE. Here's my first Valentines Day card of the year. Now this is a holiday I can get into *LOL* It was also an excuse to use some of my new printable stamps from The Cutting Cafe. My break from the DT is over and I am so glad. Regina always amazes me with the sets she creates. They are great for mixing and matching.

I used two different Valentines Day sets for this one. I used the Fun with Valentine's Day set and the Fun with Hearts set. Two very good sets but then again aren't they all? Head on over to The Cutting Cafe for a wide selection of printable sets as well as some great eye candy.
