You Are So Loved and GIVEAWAY WINNERS!

Woodland Gifts

Hi All!

Remember in my birthday post last week I announced I would give away gift certificates to two lucky members? Well, the day has come for the drawing! The winners are:

$50 Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp: Michexy
$50 Gift Certificate to Ellen Hutson: Dottie Lee

Congrats ladies! I emailed both of you. On to today’s card…

It’s getting close to Valentine’s Day, so I thought I would get a head start. This card uses the Woodland Gifts stamp set by Mama Elephant. I used it on THIS CARD not too long ago. I like the animals because they are cute but not cutesy.

I cut the panel with the animals to fit the heart underneath. Here is a close-up:

One small note: In the video, I said the patterned paper is Avery Elle Brights collection, but it’s actual the Avery Elle Jewel Collection. Enjoy the video and have a wonderful weekend!

    Such an adorable card. I don’t have any stamp sets that have little critters in them and I am definitely going to get some. This is just too cute!

    Just love love love this card. Thank you for your insight on having 3 “spots” of red and adding balance to your design. The hearts inside are nice surprise for the recipient.

    Very adorable card! Thanks for showing what you would do on the inside. I have a harder time decorating the inside of my cards than I do the outside.

    This is adorable. Whoever receives this IS loved. I like cards with so much to them, coloring, die cutting, embellishing… And love Valentines.

    Congratulations Michexy and Dottie Lee! I know you will enjoy getting some new goodies as much as I did!

    Darlene, you’ve done it again. These critters are so sweet without being saccharine. Whoever gets that card will be very pleased!
