The Friday Mashup #242, Valentines

Hmmm, I was hoping that when I came back, so would the “old” way to add a post.  No such luck:(  I’m forging ahead with the “new” way to add a blog post, so I hope it goes faster than last time:)

Welcome back! 🙂 I have another card and I have a guest as well:)  So first off, I have my card that I made for the Friday Mashup #242.

The Mashup Challenge this week is:

  • or Mash it Up!! and create a V-day Candy themed project

I didn’t take this photo straight on so it looks a little strange, at least to me;)  Everything is actually straight and even:)  I made this card with Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grunge (retired), Rose Red & Blushing Bride ink, and a stamp that I know is Stampin’ Up!, but I’m not sure of the set.

The main image is from Fred She Said called Valentine’s Day-Better than ChocolateBehind the heart, I used Baked Brown Sugar, and the background cardstock is Blushing Bride, both by Stampin’ Up!  A little different from me, but I love the finished card! 🙂

 

My guest today is a repeat sender, Vicki Luebke of IN:)  Vicki sent a few Valentine’s in this box, but mostly she sent Winter themed cards:)  Because I made a card with Fred She Said today, I’m going to show you her Winter cards because she also used a lot of Fred She Said images:)

All of the Fred She Said images are listing in the shop under Christmas, here is the main link:)

Aren’t these cute?!  I love when the same image is used in different ways!  This is called Emma the Skating ElfI also love that she used 4 of the 6 colors available in the set! 🙂

On the left is Emma the Snow Angel.  This was a special request by me for Tracey the shop owner, wasn’t that sweet of her?!  I love it! 🙂  On the right is Catchin’ Flakes, this one reminds me of my brother when he was small:)

The image on the left is Hat Tipping Snowman, and the one on the right is Winter WestieMost of these sets also come with the plain digi that you can color yourself:)  Vicki has done a great job with her designs! Even though the snowmen have the same layout, they look very different:)  All of these cards are great! Even if they went to kids in the same hospital on the same unit, each child would feel they have a special card!

I have a lot of FSS images!  I think this is the first image I bought, and it’s still my favorite, this is Emma the Hugger! I, myself, have used this image many times, it just makes me happy! 🙂

I have a few more from Vicki I’d like to share:)

Vicki does an excellent job of making encouraging cards, and they’re so cute! 🙂

Aren’t these adorable?!  I believe all these images are from Dollar Graphics Depot.  All of their images are only one dollar!  I love Vicki’s clean and simple designs! 🙂

These are the last images for Vicki today.  Both of these images are rubber stamps from Stampin’ Up! (retired).  Thank you Vicki for sharing your talents with our kids!  All of these cards will be donated to hospitals through Send A Smile 4 Kids! 🙂

Thank you to Vicki and all card makers who make and send cards for our kids! 🙂

Thanks for coming by today, even if you don’t send cards, I hope you’ve gotten some inspiration for your own cards! 🙂  Hope to see you again soon! 🙂
