I really love the papers for Valentine's Day, they are just so fun and pretty and PINK!!  This cute little tea cup is from the Silhouette Store, it is by LW.  The pretty white ribbon is Snow White Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot tied in a double bow. 

The sentiment is from the Banner Sentiment stamp set and cut out with the Ribbon Banners - Straight Metal Dies, also from My Craft Spot.

Top Secret Detective Blog Hop

Welcome to the Top Secret Detective Blog Hop hosted by Jaded Blossom and SVG Cutting Files!

  So glad you joined me for this super fun hop, there will be prizes and fun all around, just follow the clues!

For my project today I made a card and a treat container.  Annie at SVG Cutting Files made me this fun cut file, it is Basil of Baker Street from the Great Mouse Detective.  He is one of the free files you will get today.   Make sure to scroll all the way down to get my secret word and the link to the free file.

 I stamped some of the Detective Candies around him for the background, I inked them up with markers so as not to get the circle around the image. 

For the magnifying glass I just used punches and then stamped the thumbprint in the center.  For the pillow box I just wrapped the papers around it and glued them down and added the twine and magnifying glass. 

So what is a blog hop without a prize?  Not as fun for sure!  This is what I will be giving away today to some lucky winner! This is a brand new package of AC Spring card stock (60 sheets 8.5 x 11) this is my very favorite card stock of all time!! 3 spools of ribbon 1 spool of twine and 1 package of brads.  

 Here is what you need to do to be entered to win.

1) Be a follower of my blog
2) Leave a comment on this post

That is it so easy and simple, I will pick a winner on Thursday January 30, 2014 you will have one week to get back to me. 

Here is the link to get the free files from the hop today, you only need to do this one time as all the files are in it.  

My secret word is "a" add it to the other words you collect in the right order to solve the mystery.

Best Grandpa ever!

This is a new file that will be released on Friday at SVG Cutting Files, so cute right?!  I just love the sweet Kawaii faces! 

So there is a story behind this card.  My husband loves to make waffles and we all love to eat them.  Over the years he has gotten pretty good at it and pretty crazy in some of the things he puts on them, of course we put butter  and syrup but some will add peanut butter, caramel sauce, whipped cream, fruit and sometimes ice cream.  Needless to say my grandkids LOVE them and all the gooey sticky sweetness!  So I made this card for them to give to their Grandpa... the Best Grandpa ever!

 I printed the sentiment using my Cameo.  The syrup is on foam tape and the waffle is on an action wobble.

You will be able to get this fun file which also comes with pancakes on friday in the Store.

New Baby Cards

These are some cards I made with my friend Sue, we printed out the chalk paper and hand cut it out.  I then colored it with chalk pencils.  Love the look of these and so simple to make.

Hugs Card

This was a super quick and easy card to make.   The background is embossed with the big dots.  The speech bubbles were a punch and then I stamped the two sentiments on them, the zig zag one is plastic so the red background shows through. 

Just wanted to make sure you knew about this fun hop coming up, it will be awesome!

Big Love

Okay don't look at the crooked stamp…it does look even more crooked here than it really is.  Had to use it though I had no more paper.  This is proof I do make mistakes some bigger than others!  Anyway hope you like the card in spite of the crooked sentiment.

you me forever

I really love Valentines Day, well I just love the fun papers and cards and treat containers!!  This card actually has a pocket on the front and the pieces were stamped and then glued down into the pocket.  The black strip across the pocket is washi tape.

It's time for a new monthly challenge over at SVG Cutting Files, and the theme this month is Just A Card.  So any kind of card you want, it just has to be a card.
For my card I used the Mini Notecard Bases, you can get them here.  I sized it up to 4.5", I just wanted that shape of card but a little bigger.  For the sweet little raccoon I used the Chibi Forest Animals Set, you can get it here. 

For the tag I used the Ribbon Banners - Straight from My Craft Spot,  I trimmed it down to fit what I needed.  For the sentiment I used the Forest Friends stamp set from Jaded Blossom.
