Beary Box Card Challenge 13

Happy Valentines Day to those of you who celebrate it and have people to share it with. If you are like me and are of the school of telling those you love how much you love them at every possible opportunity, yeah for less jewellry ads!!

This week I am away from the scrap space because I am house sitting. My Dad and I do lots of really random art projects which I will post as I get my part (ie the painting part) done. I didn't even bring scrap stuff with me because I am so behind on my painting his folk art projects! Maybe I should go take a pic of the stack....

So on to more exciting things. I know that my nanny will have a Vday card for me, so I definately had to make a card for her, and my aunt is having a rough time lately (the doctors thought she may have cancer, turned out to be pre-cancer so that is good) so I made one for her too. I also divided a clover plant the other night so I am going to give each of them a clover plant too.

I haven't decided which card is for who yet, I just love each of them so much. I think that the amazing dragon (from... shoot I forget, but I bought it from treehouse stamps) is going to go to my nanny and the rainy day (bought from BearyBox of course) will go to my aunt. I hope that you like them!
Images are stamped with staz-on, then coloured using watercolour pencils. I just got one of the brushes that has a resevoir in it... best thing of life!! Used a little cuttlebug embossing folder action to get the swiss dots, and the hearts were all cut out with sizzix. Sentiments and the flower border is CTMH.

SOO, I am a little behind.

So I have been feeling like my scrapbooking mojo has been off the past few weeks, I haven't had any desire to craft at all. I have loved the sketches that bearybox has been doing, but just haven't been able to get my butt in gear. I am home on a snow day today and thought "Well self, you already cleaned the house, cleaned out your closet and you have no school work home with you. Lets see if we can jump start some creativity".

I decided starting with a sketch would be the place to go. Again I am still working on my friend's wedding album so they get priority.

Here is the sketch

And here is my take. I got these great flowers from the boy when he wanted a new video game and they were still on my desk, so I started with them! Journalling is left blank for the bride to fill in with her thoughts.

I also had a page that was half done for a few weeks ago, and I love the brads that I used on it so I am going to share it while I am here. I finished it up today, although its not award winning or anything! The pics are from us getting ready for the wedding ceremony at the bride's parents house. I did the hair for 3/4 bridesmaids.

How cute are the hairdryer and lipstick brads?!?

Happy Scrapping!
