Thank you....again

After checking out my friends Holly's blog I saw she mentioned  challenge FTL 76 from the Clean and Simple Stamping blog. I dont think I have ever played along with them, so I decided to make a quick card for the challenge! If you've been to my blog before you know that clean and simple is my favorite! I'm not much for piling lots of things on my cards.

I made another thank you card, and this is what I came up with. The roof of the house is popped up with dimensionals, as are the 4 squares:

Supplies(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps-Good Neighbors and sentiment from Trendy Trees
Paper-Old Olive, Whisper White, Good Neighbor DSP
Ink- Old Olive
Accessories- 1 3/8" square punch,Modern Label punch, sponge, dimensionals, Old Olive ribbon


Twilight Tuesday Challenges

Catching up on some of my favorite blogs I went by the Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge Blog and learned they are closing the blog down((sigh)). That really bites, no pun intended! So instead of sitting there damning them all to hell for leaving me,hehehehe, I combined 2 of their most recent challenges into 1 card.

First challenge, a "touchy feely Vampire Valentine":
With Valentines day fast approaching and everybody in a lovey dovey, touchy feely kinda mood, I thought the most obvious thing I could challenge you all to is to create a Valentine’s day card for your favourite Twilight Saga character *sigh*…Rob…I mean…Edward….What?? A girl can dream can’t she??!! …But then I thought….Nar, too easy!

So this is what I would like you to do….
Craft Portion: Make a VALENTINE’S card/project for your favourite character or for YOUR valentine… but…. with texture!! That’s right I want you to add things like lace, raised embossing, distressed edges, fuzzy fibres, metal, cloth, cracked glass, leather, flower soft, sandpaper, anything that adds texture!

Comment Portion: Tell us your favourite Valentine’s story…Or if you haven’t got one, Tell us who you would like to snuggle up on Valentine’s day with from the Twilight Saga..

My husband and I dont really celebrate Valentines Day. Our wedding anniversary is Feb.5th so we celebrate that, but we're more the 'show the person you love them everyday,even if they are being a royal PITA'  type of couple.:0) So my card is more of an anniversary card than a Valentines Day card, but its all about the love right?(and as long as hubby keeps a supply of chocolate in the fridge for me, hes loved! ;) )

As for my Twilight Valentine...well Edward of course! Yummy yummy. I want to dance in a gazebo with him!

The texture on the card is the dazzling diamonds. I know, not a whole lot but a little is always good too right?

The 2nd challenge was a sketch challenge :

This is the card I came up with. I dont really like how it came out in the photo. Trust me, it looks so much nicer in person! I'm not a fan of the color pink at all but I really like how these colors came together:

The base is chocolate chip and I used Jolie Chocolat PP by S.E.I layered onto some Regal Rose cardstock. The truck was cut out and popped up with dimensionals.
