First comes love……….then comes………baby.

Feb 3, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

OMW! Someone save me! Make the power go out! lol!

I am sitting here, watching the “game”. I HATE sports and am so tryingto get into it-just for Jay, but Id rather be in labor right now than watching the game. These feeling are leading to my post-read on.

In order to not be “rude” I am in the living room with our company-on my laptop. Best of both worlds right?

The things we do for love! LOL!

Speaking of which-here is a card I made, in honor of V-Day 😀

It was made with Gina K’s Stamps for a Cause-How Sweet it is

I love this love card.

I think the glitter on the hearts really makes it special and POP! Its a pretty clean and simple card. Maybe that is why I love it.

Speaking of pop-don’t you like the bottle cap? It is by Lil Davis. I got it about a year ago, and am JUST now finding a way to use them in  a cute way.

I thought doing the 2 hearts together was sweet because it says “together” and the pop cap is for the “life is sweet”, since the cap says “sweet-cola”.

OK too much thought into eh?

Anyway, after love often comes………….


BABY! Yes, ANOTHER baby card! Told you I have alot of friends having them, so I have baby on the brain.

I could NOT resist yet another stork card. I so love it. Again I feel storks are a great option for adoption or pregnancy.

Love this image as well.

I believe my paper is by Polar Bear Press. I just used some textured Bazzill cardstock, and my sewing machine on this.

The side sentiment is a Rub-On by Making Memories.

This reminds me of a soft lullaby.

OK i better get back to the “game” -BLECH.

The Patriots BETTER win!!! I would SO rather be stamping.

Simple Sketch- MFTeaser

Today’s sketch is a very simple one. You all seemed to really like the cleaner, less layered one’s.

It can be used with just about ANY image.

You know I LOVE my circles, but really any shape will do.

It can be solemn, cutesy and elegant.

When creating this card I used my new-yet to be released set by MFT  called Eggstra Special Easter. Sentiment is Essential Sentiments also by MFT.

REMEMBER! This week is what we are going to call an MFTeaser 😀 I have a super cool gift idea, using one of the new sets that you aren’t going to want to miss. I may just post it Wednesday. Not sure yet.

HINT: It is a template 😀 So I have to make sure I write up a nice detailed direction list. (WINK)

My Favorite Things ( is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, February 6 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. Lots of fun is planned including finding out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. Head over to the MFT forum on to find out all the details and join us there on Wednesday night.

I plan on being there to chat it up with all my girls.

That being said-back to my card.

I LOVE tulips! They are my favorite flower. No idea why, they just are.

So when creating this, it was going to be whimsical, but it then turned into asimple sympathy card (that God willing will never get used). I think sympathy cards should be kept clean, solemn, and maintain some elegance.

This, to me has all that.

I hope you like the sketch.

Great for a quick card, but it can also be dressed up!

So let see what YOU can do with it.

Don’t forget to send us the link in the comments section OK! We all want to see your take on it.

Till tomorrow.
