{valentine tubes}

I'm up on the SRM blog today with these fun Valentine mini tubes!  I used two sticker sets, Stickers By The Dozen, We've Got Your Border to decorate these fun little tubes!  I filled mine with Pixie Stix powder, but any small sized Valentine candy would work.  :)  Perfect for a Valentine exchange at your child's school or a little surprise left for someone special!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

{stitches and stickers and bags...oh my}

While the My Sketch World board is undergoing some yearly maintenance, I've been working on some of the fun card challenges Lucy has given us this month. 
The first card is for a recipe challenge based on a beautiful card by my friend, Malin. To make our card we have to use 1 pattern paper, 1 piece of card stock, 4 flowers, 4 buttons and 1 sentiment.
I found a felt flower with a pretty big opening in the center and decided to fill it up with the required flowers and buttons.  The 3 brads have flowers on them and then there is the felt flower and the 4 buttons fill in the gaps nicely.

Here is a close up. I used an SRM sticker border and sentiment to finish my card.
Another challenge included using a bingo card.  I used a card off of a 12x 12 sheet of bingo cards from Teresa Collins.  I had it pretty much finished but thought the card was too stark against the pale papers so I slipped it in an SRM glassine bag and "stitched" it shut with some sticker stitches. 
 I added a thank you sentiment from the new Stickers By The Dozen Thank You set to the glassine bag. 
Love the vintage feel this card has, I haven't done vintage in a while and it seems like that was all I was attracted to at Archivers this week!  :)
Thanks for stopping by, have a terrific weekend, friends!

{in stitches}

*sorry about the lack of content on my blog, there is a glitch in the picture adding section and it took this non techie a  l o n g  time to figure it out.  Blogger is aware of the problem and they are working to fix it. If it is happening to you, you can change over to HTML when adding photos and then back again to compose to write your post.*

SRM is debuting some awesome new stickers and products at CHA this month!  I've used 2 new products on this winter card - new sticker stitches and a glassine bag!
Here are the Sticker Stitches, aren't they great?  I love to do real stitching on my projects, either by hand or machine, but that takes time and sometimes I need to finish a card quickly-these stickers are a fabulous substitute for the real thing!

Here's my card.
The small glassine bag holds a doily and snowflake topped tag that you could write a personal message on.
Here is a close up of the wonderful sticker stitches.
I'm loving all the sneaks of the new product coming out at CHA this year!  Ive just signed up for my LSS's garage sale next month!   I get to purge my supplies (and possibly organize my room in the process!) and earn credit right in time for all the new product to hit the shelves!   
Happy Friday, friends!  Be aware of happiness, it is all around you.  :)
