Card Kit Giveaway!!!

This contest is over....sorry. You can see who won in this post. Thanks for entering. :) There will be more opportunities to win great products on my blog :)

Hello Friends, How was your weekend?? I "taught" my monthly stamps class at my LLS and always leave feeling inspired and with a full heart.

Speaking of hearts I have a giveaway from Simon Says Stamp!! 

Simon Says stamps is now selling card kits that are chock full of goodies !! Wait until you read the list of what the kits contain. Click here to see the all of the goodies in the kit. If you sign up for February's kit you will get Tim Holtz's limited edition distress inks as a bonus!  The kits can be ordered one at a time here or you can order the kits monthly here. 
If you suscribe you save $5.00 off of each kit.

What I love about these kits are stress free crafting plus I think it's a huge time saver with all of the 6x6 papers, embellishments, ribbon, gems etc. selected for you & right at your finger tips. This is always the hardest part for me when I am creating a card. A few years ago I played with some card kits and it was such joy having all of the supplies right before you. All you have to do is stamp. Love that!! I am excited to get my kit and share cards from the kit. 
LEAVE A COMMENT FOR A CHANCE TO WIN FEBRUARY'S CARD KIT. ONE RANDOM WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN SATURDAY. 
Good luck and thanks for your visit. Hugs, Kathy

Thank You Anonymous

Love
Hello Friends, It's me again :)
 I want to dedicate this post to a very special lady !
 I don't know who "she" is but, I hope she follows my blog?? I want to give her a bucket of hearts because she left me a wonderful gift certificate for me at my favorite LLS. I can't express how that gift really touched me and still warms my heart. She wanted to remain anonymous so hopefully she will know how grateful I am!! I purchase something special so that whenever I use it I will think of her gift & how it will continue to give me those warm feelings of a beautiful surprise & the meaning of her gift.
 Have a great week. Hugs, Kathy
P.S. I wanted the hearts in the wagon to look like the mini candy hearts that you eat with small words on them. I was to afraid to write on them in case I messed up the card.
P.S.S. In case you are wondering yes, I made Mimi a wig like I did in this post.

I thought the free flowing tail was so fun on this peacock by "Crafts Lounge". For some reason I wanted to give my colored pencils and chance to prove themselves again. When I finished coloring I used a Dove Blender to soften the pencil lines. Then a white gel pen was a must to add some dots. The stitching was super easy with the this and this Sometimes I like to use the Tim Holtz ruler because the holes are closer together. The nice thing about the sew easy pink thing is it has lines that guide me so I get a nice and straight line with my holes. All I do is tape down the ruler so I don't get any movement.

As you might remember I will bring you a simple card to share with you as well. I saved time not coloring the tail and cut it off. Super easy layering made this fast and easy. The left over turquoise floss was used to create the flower. Just coat it with Glossy Accents and it gets nice and stiff. I made a large flower here the same way.

The trim is a Spellbinder Lace Doily Accents. Let me know if you have any questions.  If you have a  second check out this giveaway...a beautiful Penny Black stamp. Let me know if you have any questions and thank YOU for your visit. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Kathy
