It has been a while since I have made a card with Tilda. Well you just can't let too much time go by without using her and I hadn't used these Tildas before so it was really time.

This Tilda is from the Christmas 2012 collection. She is colored with copics. The paper is from basic grey. The big chick is from the See Spot Save section at Target. There were 5 spring animals in a pack. I added the eye and wing with a sharpie. The flower centers are frosted lace stickles. The hearts in Tilda's lap have a pink glitter glue from the See Spot Save section. Half pearls are on the one side and little colored pearl hearts are done the side. The die cut swirl is from memory box.
Here is the inside.

I decided to try to use up some of the scraps so I made another card using the same papers but a different Tilda.

Tilda had a poinsettia in her hair but I cut that off and added this flower.
Hope you enjoyed the cards for today.

I made a couple of Valentines for my family.

This one uses a house mouse stamp. The paper is from Target. The fleur de lis and circles are made with nestabilities. The keys are from - oh I forget and I am too lazy to go look. lol. The mice were colored with prisma colored pencils. Some red stickles were added for berries and crystal stickles were added to the top key. I tied some organza ribbon and the a striped ribbon around the bottom. Then I put a flower over top.

Here is the next one.
The penguin is from red rubber designs and colored with copics. The border was drawn with a sharpie. A love stamp was added with a heart rhinestone. This one was for my granddaughter. One of the simplest cards I have made in a long time.
Hope you enjoy.

House Mouse Mug

Time to do Valentine's Day cards. Hopefully I can get the ones I need to do before Valentine's Day. I didn't get my Christmas cards done this year.

This little guy is a house mouse stamp. I did a reverse mask so I could put the decorations on the inside. That stamp is from Michaels, I think. The mug is colored with copics and the mouse is done with prisma colored pencils. I added a button for the middle. 
Here is the inside.
Pretty simple but so often I don't do anything to the inside.

I don't usually do swaps but some on my yahoo group were asking for one so I decided to host a Valentine's Day one. I was running late so I opted to do one that didn't have any coloring. 

Really pretty simple but I had a hard time coming up with ideas on how to make it look right. The little stamp in the center came from Michael's I think (it was a gift). I got the button and papers from Target as is the ribbon. Lots of nestabilities dies used. I sewed around the paper, stapled the ribbon to the tag and assembled. The corners are a square nestabilities cut in half diagonally. 
Here is the inside.

The paper had lots of these type of little tags.
Hope you enjoyed.
