Sweet Valentine using Sherri Baldy's Img 5281

It's that Special time of year when our thoughts
turn to our loved ones and those that are near and dear to our hearts.  Love comes in may forms and I like to express my feelings to family with my cards.
Sherri Baldy makes it so easy to choose one of her digital images to use but, it also is a curse!!  Because there are so MANY to pick from in her Bestie Shop.  This cutie is Img 5281 from the Sweet Lil' Things collection.  Just makes me feel like Spring is right around the corner!  I used the same beige distressed polka dot paper on the angled corner as in the inside of the card.  Metal butterfly has a Baker's Twine bow on the top.  There's an Echo Park sentiment block on the inside greeting.
Be sure and check out The Besties Shop for Your Valentine image-she has so many!

Wintery mix for January using Sherri Baldy's Nutcracker Img 5284

Well in Illinois, there were Winter Storm warnings out for this weekend and I must say, I was kind-of rubbing my hands together--a chance to get house-bound with lots of Sherri Baldy's images to color and play with!
Because I was feeling a little "Snowy"  I colored up one of Sherri's "Nutcracker" images:  this ones is Img 5284, Nutcracker the Gift.  I ALWAYS love her wintery scenes!
With the vintage coloring, pink and cream are one of my favorites!  I used a white Nuvo for the pearl dot effect-really like the control of it and will get more! An accent of metallic gold for the Crown and Chunky White Frantage for the snow.  Mixed some sweater paper with some foil paper for some triple layers and a trim piece with sentiments.
On the inside, I repeated the Blank textured paper with pale pink snowflakes and used a matching sentiment and pink foil tree to complete the card.
I hope you like my effort.  It has been a long way back for me from 2018 to now and with Sherri's help furnishing such beautiful creations, I'll be off to a good start!  Thanks for visiting!
