Picture Perfect

Have you seen the newest Sale-A-Bration items that are available?  There are two new stamp sets and some gorgeous Metallics Glitter Tape that looks like a lot of fun.  I just got mine today, so I haven't played with it yet, but I can't wait!  You can see the newest items in the brochure here:
Today's card is one I made for the February Upscale Swap Group.  The picture doesn't show the Clear Wink of Stella on the flowers.  The center flower has it all over, and the two outside flowers have it on the darker spots (the Rose Red).  I'll have to work on capturing that with my camera.

Valentine's Sampler

 Smiley from Millan.Net
I'm kind of addicted to making frame "samplers" with stamps and card stock.  I recently saw a beautiful Valentine's one, so I decided that I needed to make a new one.  After all, my other one is at least four years old.  Plus this new one is 12x12" and my "old" one is 8x8".  These are all significant differences, wouldn't you agree?

This first picture was taken without a flash, so the colors look a bit washed out.

The second picture is with a flash, but it's so difficult to get a decent picture of something behind glass.  Any tips?
I would try to list all the items that I used on the frame, but there are too many to mention.  I've tried to list the main ones below.
Watercolor Words, Going Global, Bloomin' Love, Bear Hugs, Number of Years, Groovy Love
Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack; Rose Red, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, and Basic Black cardstock; Blushing Bride, Dazzling Diamonds, and Black Glimmer Papers
Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit; various punches, framelits, and embossing folders

If you have any specific questions, just leave me a comment below and I'll do my best to answer them!  Until next time...

Birthday Card

We celebrated my daughter's birthday on Monday with dinner out and then her favorite dessert.  Not cake this year, but Oreo Ice Cream Dessert.  Made by her mom, of course!

Here's the card that I made for her.  I absolutely love the Number of Years stamp set and coordinating Large Numbers Framelits Dies!
She wasn't too thrilled at turning 27 this year, but I think she did like her card.
