A work friend of mine is no longer going to be servicing our store.  Through the last few years we have become good friends.  I made this card to look like the new group of clothing we got in.  Janis at PAUSE, DREAM &ENJOY is having a "Friendship" Linky party. 
The solid papers are Cor'dinations.  All other is DCWV .  The dress die is My Creative Time.  I don't know sho the stamp is by-I think Fiskars.  The tile on the inside is Cloud 9, the tag is Martha Stewart.  Gems are from my stash

I'll love you OWLways

I was stumped by the sketch Challenge at My Craft Spot.  So I looked thru my stamps for inspiration.  From the set Cute Critters, I chose the sentiment "I'll love you OWLways"  The papers are DCWV. The sentiment is My Craft Spot.  The hearts and owls are My Creative Time.  The ink is Dew Drop Brilliance Platinum with clear embossing powder.  I will also be linking this up to DL.ART  Thankful Thursday January Linky Party. DOCERELA DESIGNS are having a black and silver challenge
This card is for my hubby for our 24th anniversary

BBTB2 is having a Get Well Challenge.  Ironic, since I have been in bed for two days with the flu.  Also DIE CUTTING DIVASare having a Penguin Awareness Challenge.  What a great combo.  The penguin is from Jolly Holidays, the sick girl is from Dr. Checkup. The base card is Sizzix "Album Accordion" The labels are also Sizzix. It took me a while to figure this one out. The polka dot and stripe papers are Basic Grey.  All others are scraps.  The face is Peachy Keen.  The sentiments are from My Creative Time-"I'm Here for you Rain or Shine". Has anyone got any tips for stamping on cork?

Happy New Year.  A quick update, the good new-we are recarpeting the whole upstairs.  The bad news I have to move everything out of my craftroom.  This week is inventory and I work 3 overnights.  Then I am taking a few 3 day weekends.  So I decided I would start my crafting resolutions on Feb 1st.  Organize my room, post 3 times a week and visit more blogs.
I made this cute owl birthday card using My Creative Time stamp set called "Birthday Buddies"  The papers are MME "Hootenanny"  I used spellbinders dies.
I will be entering this into DL.Art Thankful Thursday January Linky Party and to LITTLE SCRAP PIECES fun friday linky party
