Special Gift

Wow I can't believe it is Feb 1st already.  January flew by for me.  I hope everyone had a good weekend. Saturday I got together with Mary, Kristen, Pia, Michelle and Trish to stamp.  It is always a fun day to compare ideas and have some laughs.  I didn't get as much done as I had hoped to but that is okay.  I really liked what I made and this card is one of them. 

Today is Tuesday so it is time for another Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge.  I loved making the card for this one.  We have a great sponsor, Di's Digi Downloads!!!   She was kind enough to let us pick an image to play with.  I loved so many of them it took me forever to pick one.  I kept going back to this adorable cat so that is the one I picked.  You need to check these out.  I'm sure you will fall in love with them too.  The theme this week is easy, Love or Friendship.    How easy is that?? 

So grab those Love or Friendship stamps and play along!!!

The other wonderful challenges my card fits are:

Cooking it up with Kate - Texture & Punch - I have alot of texture with my flowers & lace and I used my new MTF and Spellbinder dies for my punches.

Fab & Funky - Delight in your Digi's - Di's digi's were a delight for me!

Fresh Brewed - Inspiration - I took the Pink, Green & Blue from the photo for inspiration.

Stampavie & More - Love - I like this valentine with non traditional colors.

Charisma - Love - I think this would make a great valentine for a child and who doesn't love children.

Paperplay - Layer it up - This was easy for me!  I love layers and have many on this card.

Crafty Catz - Flowers - I love flowers and I love the colors of my flowers on this card.

Mami Doodles - Magic of Love - I am having alot of fun making Valentines card this year.  There are so many ways to say Love.

Prairie Fairy Fun Friday - For a Sweetheart - This card would be a cute card to tell your sweetheart how you feel.

The Townscrapper - Dies - I love dies!  I used spellbinders and My Favorite Things dies on this card.

Stamp Scrap & Doodle - Get Punchy - I love my punches and dies.  I don't know if I could make a card without them!  This card uses my corner punch, spellbinders & MFT die

Totally Gorguss- As you like it - This challenge was to make something you like.  I really like the way this card came out.

Lexi's Creations - Valentine - I got my saying a a LSS sale and I love it because it says Love in a different way.

Lollipop Crafts - Sisters - I would not have any problem giving my card to my sister Mary.  She is a special gift to me.  She not only is there whenever I need her, she is the person who got me into stamping which is a huge joy in my life.

Paper Play Time - Digi Monday -I do love my digi's!!!   I am so happy Paper Play time will have this theme once a month!!

Stamps R Us - Animals - Isn't this cat so cute!  I had a blast coloring her.

Wild Orchid Crafts - Love Is - Love is so many things and I think telling someone they are your special gift is a wonderful way to say Love.

Pile it On - Punch it - I look at my dies just like punches and I love both of them.  On this card I used my corner Punch and my Spellbinders and My Favorite things dies.

Stamptacular - Whateva - I love this!!   And my card fits it perfectly LOL!!

Annabelle - Sketch - I loved this sketch.  I really worked with what I wanted to do.

Thank you for visiting and looking at my card.  I hope you like it.  Thank you to everyone who leaves a comment.  I love reading them
