NanaConnie of Grammy's Attic 
Kath B of Handmade by Kath

 Oh my goodness, do I love having new friends to get to know, and thanks so much to all of you for becoming followers here.
********************************************************************************** 
The latest goal of 300 followers is drawing near. I'm excited enough to share a picture of the Blog Candy that will be going out when that face pops into the Followers list with 300 above it!  If you should follow via Bloglovin, but are not in the 'Followers List' at the top of the blog, please do join there as well. I don't have a way (er...know how ...) to track Bloglovin followers. When new faces appear, that follower's name and blog(if I can find one)  is added to my data base and that's what is used for the Random Generator when Blog Candy is given away.
 
Win requirements will be: (1)regular follower of this blog** (2) Share the Candy picture on your own blog with a link back to this blog (3)There will be 3 winners when the Random drawing is done and announcement will be made when this is to be done.
**********************************************************************************
In the Cards by Friends section, shared some more of the wonderful Christmas cards we were blessed to receive this past Christmas; please do take a few minutes to enjoy those too.

Today's card uses a DeeDee's Digi image - From the Heart (currently on sale for $1.00). Papers, sentiment and image are all from this set. I think it made a cute (and Easy!) Valentine card. There's so much more that could be done with the set, but I just wanted to get a fast card made to do a post. DeeDee's has a new DT member, Faith Anderson of Daffodil Cards, and Faith does some awesome work in Photo Shop using these digis. The beauty of these designs (at least in my opinion) is that you can jazz them up as desired, or use as is, and still have a delightful card.

 
 
- Image fussy cut, and portions of a 2nd image were used to add a little dimension. Minimal shading on the chocolate heart done with copics. Glossy accents added on the bow in Bunny's hair.
 
- S/B Oval Bliss cut the oval mat, Large Petite Scalloped Oval for the sentiment, and MS heart punch did the border. Two little punchout hearts had a drop of G.Accents added. That's it...card is DONE and ready for mailing. Couldn't have been easier.
 
Thanks for visitin' this afternoon, and please do pop round to my new friends - say a big Howdy, and let them know I sent you if you would. Additionally, check out the pretty cards being added to the Friends' Cards section. The Blog Candy will be in the sidebar shortly. I hope it will make you drool a bit!! Big Hugs, stay warm. God Bless.

**Please don't become a follower just to be eligible for the Blog Candy. I hope all of my followers enjoy what I post, and come to visit as their time permits. Thank you.

Yum, yum, yum, the chocolate on this card looks good enough to eat! Adorable card! Although I love cute little mice, I am not fond of them right now because we have them in our basement - yikes! We have caught one in the live trap and have set it free very far away from our house, but we know there are more. A sneaky one has been in and out of the live trap twice and ate the food so I'm hoping Brian has fixed it. Just in case, we got more traps! Not sure if you know this, but nice love chocolate, so your card is very appropriate! Mice are cute on cards but not in your house LOL!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Oh, forgot to say - congrats on the number of followers! That's AWESOME! But well deserved! Love your blog! I just lost a follower yesterday - have no idea who it is. For some reason, it's killing me to know who doesn't like my cards any longer LOL! I think I need a data base such as the one you mentioned. Did you create this yourself?

I am so loving this card Momma Mary! The digi, the digi papers are so pretty! It made one cute Valentines that is for sure! It was everything that Carol said it was here yesterday. Such a miserable day and I too stayed inside until the ice melted, then I popped out to the pharmacy and grocer. It was nice not to have any wind for once!!! Gosh Momma Mary you will be at 300 followers before you know it, and I might say well deserved for sure! You always make the best cards and I love to visit to see what is up and to hear your chit chat. We all know how much I love to chit chat. lol Hugs, Brenda

Just been reading down some of the other posts on your blog. You have done well to remain even vaguely polite in the face of such stupidity from that new company. Total lack of common sense on their part. Anyway, I am glad you can put that aside and create such lovely cards. Thank you for your visits to me and for the great comments. I am still working on the stamps, having just found two small boxes with more stamps in that had got missed. Hope you have a less stressful week. xx Maggie
