Short and SWEET

Short and sweet post tonight! Lucky you!

Here are two projects I completed today. The first one includes a sentiment from Gina K. Designs Stamps for a Cause set "How Sweet It Is." This set is a versatile stamp set that benefits The American Diabetes Association and the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. $7.00 of every set sold is divided evenly between these two organizations.

This is for a sweet friend who is crazy about m&m's and her birthday is coming up so I just wanted to create a fun way to present her favorite treat.

Next is a card that is a bit different from my normal style. It features a new release from Gina K Designs that was drawn by her teenage daughter, Alicia. It is called "anna-mae's valentine." Isn't it so sweet? I am so proud of Alicia and what she has accomplished at such a young age.

I stamped the main image right on this decorative paper that Gina sells at her store. I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and I added some of these fun rain dot hearts that Gina also carries at her store. What fun they are! The wings are embossed in the glitter embossing powder my friend brought over to me the other day. Thanks, Deb!

Thanks for stopping by!
