Thank you card of the Month ~ February

I am happy to share with you a new card that I have designated as my thank you card of the month for all online orders done in February.  If you place on order thru me, on my Stampin'Up! website , you will receive this beautiful handmade card from me as my thank you for your business!
I  used the beautiful Nature Walk stamp set from the Occasions Mini catalog for the entire card. Colors I used were Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive. Accessories used were Decorative Label punch, Brayer, markers and Lattice Embossing Plate.

I love this sweet little bird friend, he really brightens up my day!

Valentines for my kiddos

My kids had a pretty great Valentine's Day! I made the above card for my preschooler, Paige.  She loves kitty cats and I love her! I used the Blossom Petals punch for the head, ears and paws.  I also used one stamp from the Build a Blossom stamp set for the pink inside part of the kitty's ear. If you are wondering where the Purrfect sentiment came from the Pun Fun stamp set.
I wanted to make the kitty peek over a fence, so I came up with this one using Crumb Cake cardstock, Chocolate Chip ink pad and a sponge.

 I got inspiration off Jackie Topa's website for the fishy card for my son Tommy.  She came up with this fish using 2 stamps from the Build a Blossom stamp set. I used the grass from Inspired by Nature, and the conversation bubble with the heart came from Valentine Defined. The colors I used are Tangerine Tango for the fish, Marina Mist for the water, Pumpkin Pie and Marina Mist cardstock for the base and bottom layer of the card.
 Last but certainly not least are my two little Valentines!  They both got a chocolate dog from me and Daddy with a new Chi Chi Chihuahua Webkinz for Paige and BeyBlades for Tommy.

Hope you had a nice Valentine's day!
