A Valentine Heart Melts Again

Happy Kitchen Sink Flash Back Friday!

While slowly updating ALL the links from the new website over to my blog… it hit me how valuable a blog or gallery can be! There it is, a history of work, events, images, etc., all there waiting to be enjoyed again. So why not? It certainly has been a long time since I have taken a second look at some of my favorite cards from the past ten years and that is what I hope to share with you.

Today is an exceptionally beautiful day in So. Calif. for Feb. 2nd. The sun is shining, the air is crystal clear (still a big deal when you can see downtown LA and beyond to the beach – 30 miles as the crow flies = 1.5hrs via car! – lol). The tempt is a lovely 78°F – PERFECT!

After a quick glance at the global temperature map, it looks like 3/4 of the world is dealing with some chilly temps of 50° F and much colder! So, please don’t take it that I am bragging. Today is just an exceptionally gorgeous day and it is lovely temperature today that inspired me to flash back today’s card (from 2010).

I would love to know … What is the temperature where you live?

For everyone that leaves their hometown temperature in the comments below, will have a chance to win the stamp set, Multi-Step Invisible Snowman. A winner will be randomly chosen and announced here next Friday (Feb. 9th).Invisable-Snowman-w-Sample-wtrmk

The winner picked will need to comment back within 48hrs, otherwise, a new winner will be randomly selected.

Have an inky Friday… and stay warm!

Happy Kitchen Sink Monday…

I have a fun project to share with you today … a St. Patrick’s Day Coaster POSTCARD!

Stamping on coasters, whether round or square, sure can be fun! So, when a dear friend of mine showed me a RECTANGLE coaster… (the perfect size for a postcard) … I started to drool and knew I had to have some. How fun would that be to stamp a POSTCARD!!!! Smiley from millan.net

So here is my take on a St. Patty’s postcard … it is going to another dear friend with the last name of Dooley… thought it would be most appropriate!  AND for some St. Patty’s fun….. the first reader to guess HOW MANY stamp sets I used to create this postcard… will win a set of 6 postcards of their own. 🙂 Leave a post here on this post to enter. Deadline is March 16th, midnight PST. I will announce the winner on March 17th!

NOTE: the stamp used for the address lines on the back of the postcard will not count since it is retired KSS set.

Good LuckI am off to go count how many myself!

Please remember to check what the rest of the KS Crew has cooked up for you this KSS Monday.

Happy Kitchen Sink Monday & the third day of Kitchen Sink Stamps & PaperTemptress’s St. Patty’s Treasure Hunt Give Away!

I showed you the first piece of the puzzle on Sat. … and while I don’t have a new piece of the puzzle for you today, I have a new card that is bound to send tons of Luck!

I made the “ribbon button” using a dome sticker over my stamped 4. The ribbon has a running stitch on the inside and pulled to create the gathering. Then adhering the ribbon to the back of the dome sticker and attaching the whole thing to the card with a pop-up dot. Easy-peasy!

Please check the rest of the KS Crew for more Lucky Shamrock & St. Patty’s Green paper inspiration… and one of them just might have another piece of the puzzle for you! Good Luck! Happy Hunting & Stamping!
