A little Something Sweet

It's Friday again and here is my post for this week's challenge!
I used Something Sweet , here is the front of my card--

This is a picture of the inside--

This card is waaaaaay more difficult than last week's Valentine Conversation Heart box!! I made some grass with card stock using the faux suede technique, and used the Jig to make sure everything lined up inside with the Magnifying Glass on the front. When I finished it looked like I had every crafty thing I owned out on my desk. Here are all of the things I needed to make this card... SU! Supplies--

Stamp Sets: Something Sweet (pg.20, Occasions Mini Catalog), Inspired by Nature (pg.96, 2009-10 IB&C), Bugs & Kisses (pg.88, 2009-10 IB&C). Accessories: Stamp-Jig, medium window sheets, Stampin' Write Journaler, paper cutter, paper snips, old olive striped grosgrain ribbon, mini glue dots, 1 3/4 Circle Punch, melon mambo marker. Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Old Olive. Ink: Old Olive, Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip.

Hope you have a great week-end! It's pretty cold here in Madison (-2 when I took m son to school this morning)--we will be just tryin' to stay warm. Until next time,

A Fabulous Friday Valentine for you!

Hey there and welcome to another Fab Friday post! This sweet little Valentine is so simple to make--
Here is a picture of it open--

I used shimmer cardstock cut to 5x 7 1/4. Score it to form a box around the candy (6 1/2", 4", 3 1/4", 3/4"). I also scored it at 3/4" along the length to form the bottom of the box. I purchased the Conversation Hearts at a big box store. I received a trade from one of my Downline Stacey Campbell last week-end at the Quarterly SU! Meeting in Janesville. I loved the color combination--thanks Stacey for the cute, cute trade!

SU! supplies used--

Accessories: slot punch, Polka dot Melon Mambo grosgrain ribbon, Full Heart punch, Heart to Heart punch, Small Heart punch, BigShot, Perfect Polka Dots folder. Paper: Shimmer White, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Pretty in Pink, Yo-yo Yellow.

The Valentines Day Stamp Camp is next week, check my calendar (it's in the column on the left) for dates and times.

Until next week, Karla c(:

You can see by the name of my blog that I REALLY do {heart} Hearts--I'm crazy for them! At my house I decorate with a lot of hearts, I try to hide them in plain sight. So having this stamp set as the focus for the Fabulous Friday post ( was a fun challenge. Really fun to put together!
