"Unlikely Friends"

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I know I did, I had my little sister here with her kids and boy did we have a spread of food! Soon I'll be off to black Friday shopping, but first I wanted to share a card with you all! I know it's a little early to be thinking of Valentines Day, but better to be on the early side then the late right?

I made this card with the new Artful INKables stamp set "Creature Comforts" I just love every image and saying from this set! They are all just way to adorable! Make sure to go check out all 4 of the new stamp set releases for this month. They are all a must have!

Over at the Artful INKables Blog there is a new challenge going on. Make sure to go and participate for a chance to win some AI stamps!
Have a great weekend!

For my card I choose to make a wolf themed card, since New Moon is mostly about Jacob and Bella's friendship and of course the incredibly handsome wolf pack. I did a collage technique using masking, chalking and distressing.

Today I am showing you a card I made with the new Valentine stamp set called "Creature Comforts." This super cute stamp set has 11 stamps in all. It was a hard choice for my first card, otters, spiders, cat & dog or bunnies and each with their own super sweet saying to match! I finally decided on the hunny bunny couple. Too sweet right?

4x4 Note card Holder and the AI "Think INK Challenge"


I haven't had much time to stamp this week, between running my little guy to all his Mommy and Me play dates and juggling my teenage daughters schedules. Where does the time go? Last weekend I was able to put together my project for this weeks Think INK challenge.

This weeks Think INK challenge is to use any technique or create any 3-D item that you have never tried before. You are not required to use AI stamps, but if you have them, we'd love to see you use them!

**IF YOU USE AI STAMPS, YOU GET 2 ENTRIES FOR YOUR CREATION! JUST ENTER YOUR NAME/LINK TWICE ON MR. LINKY!!!* You have until Monday, November 9, 2009, midnight Pacific Standard Time to link your creation to this post. A winner will be chosen Tuesday, November 10, 2009 to win a GRAB BAG of AI STAMPS!*

When posting your link, please post the link directly to your creation- so if it's on your blog, please link it directly to the specific post with your creation.* If uploading to SCS or PCP, please add the keyword AIC06

For my creation I tried a 4x4 note card holder, I made using my Scor-Pal. After looking at several other box ideas online, I came up with my own design and I think it turned out fabulously! I used some ribbon for the handle then used the same ribbon on the note cards. I used the New Artful INKables stamp set "A Bird's Song." I made the notecards thank you notes and used the nest with eggs stamp on them. Then on the holder I used the main bird and added the nest to her branch. I paper pieced the eggs to make them stand out a little.
Have a great weekend!
