Eat cake

Good morning! Are you enjoying the warm weather where you live? Chicago is having fantastic weather. We are enjoying temperatures in the upper 50's. I got outside yesterday and cleaned up all the debris that flew into my yard from the day before. Very windy - up to 70 mph wind gusts! But hey, it was warm wind gusts - lol!

Tuesday was my daughter's 28th birthday. Below is the card I made for her.

I used the new Stampin Up embossing folder "Confetti". Using 4 different ink pads, I sponged ink over the embossed parts.
 I tied a ribbon and bow around the panel and adhered it to the base of my card. Using Spellbinders Lacy Ovals, I die cut the center and stamped my sentiment.

And here is a look on the inside ..

That's all from me. Enjoy your Sunday.

Be Mine

Happy Valentine's Day!
Popping in to share another Valentine gift card holder along with a Valentine Card for my godson.

Red cardstock is from Stampin Up. Pattern paper is from Martha Stewart.

I punched out the heart from pink glitter paper, adhered the heart, lock and key to
a white scallop circle.
Here is my godson's Valentine card. I started by die cutting red cardstock using Spellbinders Cascading Hearts Shapeabilities. I adhered it to a white panel and tied red/white twine around it before adhering it to a black card base.

I used PTI's  Limitless Layers 2 1/4 Heart Dies and popped it up on the front of the card, added a button with twine.
Not too girly looking for a boy!!
 Today our weather report is calling for snow, lots of it. It's 10:00 a.m. and nothing yet. One can only hope.....Happy Valentine's Day !!
