I hope you are all doing better on your resolutions than I am!!  Wow - January is passing quicker than I can keep up!!   My first baby turned 11 (gasp!), I had a fabulous vacation with my family at Universal Studios (look for Harry Potter layouts soon - lol) and the Steelers are headed to the Super Bowl (again)!  Life is good.  Here are a couple of projects I've been working on lately:

This is my niece and now god-daughter, Brooke - isn't she precious?!  I worked off of this sketch and changed it up a bit.  The patterned paper is Pink Paisley and the solid/washed look paper is Basic Grey.  I used my Sizzix Eclips Special Occasions cartridge for the 'Baptism' title, and Quickutz Banana Split font for 'Brooke's'.  The curly border is a Sizzix Sizzlet decorative strip and the cross is from Spellbinders.  I added stickles to border and cross for a bit of dazzle.

Next up is a cute Valentine's Day card (look at me working ahead!!) - I am not a big card maker so I am always tickled when I love how a card turns out.

The base of the card was made using Spellbinders Scalloped Hearts and regular Hearts nestabilities. I cut the larger scalloped heart 'on the fold' to convert it to a card. The layered plain heart helps to hide the seam. The tiny cupid and arrow are from the Quickutz Cookie Cutter Love Shapes set. I glued on a sprinkling of mica flakes and inked the edges for effect. The stamp is a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous ticket stamp that first perfectly onto the Spellbinders fancy label!  Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting!!
