I Love You This Much

Happy Friday!

Love is in the air and getting closer to Valentine's Day! Its one of my favorite holidays having 5 daughters and I always make special treats for them and my Grand babies! I think I have decided on a type of treat bag I am doing, but I still have just a few days to get them together! I always seem to wait until the last minute :)
My card today is this adorable Changito Monkey! I love these little guys (changito cupid) and wish I would grow my collection of them but my budget always forces me into something else...Like milk and eggs and so on! Who needs food when you can make crafts right? 
My paper for this one is from a 6x6 pad "lovely" made by authentique. I have had it for a while but really haven't dug into it as much as I should have by now. The paper is just so sweet and perfect valentine patterns! Lucky for me, I have the time to use it up a little more! 

Have an amazing weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Thank you/Tweet heart

Hello and Happy Thursday!!!
How about these cuties today! I try to mix things up a bit in my mind so I don't go extreme crazy! My favorite is when I can use the same leftover scraps to make two cards for my collection! 
A little water coloring for these two cards today...The first one with the goat is with a stamp from toodles and binks I have had in my collection for a few years...You know me, I start digging for one thing and out pops the ones in the back I haven't used in a while!
The second card I really can't be honest about the name. I am almost certain it's from Hero Arts, but my crazy self misplaced my backing I had on it! If I find it, I will be sure to come in and edit this for you!
Both cards are made with Stella Rose from my minds eye 6x6 stack.
Wishing everyone a wonderful day!
Thanks as always for stopping by!

Happiness isn't always easy to come by especially when we are at our lowest points. Happiness is always in us somewhere and sometimes we just have to dig deep to find it and bring it to the top!
This is exactly why I love this phrase on this card. It comes from close to my hearts "treasured life" stamp set and its the perfect one to just wish happiness always shines through!
My card base is whisper white with pool party and pear pizzazz accents. My flowers are inked with pear pizzazz, wisteria and pool party pens and stamped. 
Hoping everyone has their happiness on the outside today!
Thanks for stopping by!
