I made this Valentine for my friend's little boy. Not sure who makes the alien stamp, but I think he's adorable. I colored him in a pale blue with glitter green nose and ears. Silver trim on his helmet. He's 5, I think it will be a hit.

This isn't the best picture, but I used a block stamp from Outlines and turned it into a picture with a square frame I found at Dollar Tree. I'm giving it to my stamping friend who lives in town. She always keeps her cards received in her kitchen on a bakers rack, hopefully this will fit there too.

I was tagged. So I went into mypictures and my 6th folder and my 6th picture and I can't believe what I found. My babies. This was over 5 years ago. Yes my tag friend, my middle daughter is wearing a "Bob the Builder" dress. She's such a tom boy now, but I used to be able to dress her up.

This card is for a swap about my favorite vacation destinations. I chose a camping theme instead of a lovely island somewhere because camping is where our family memories are made. We camp at least 2 weeks of the year, and there are always extra relatives that camp too. It's a fun time to spend together and my girls really have fun. We've never seen the bear while camping, but a raccoon or two won't hurt. Thanks to my friend Gael for letting me borrow her stamp set. I just happened to find the camping words and striped DP in Summer stack from DCWV.

I made this simple card to send to my nephew who is a Marine serving in Iraq. I sent him 12 of them so he could share with some of his friends. Not sure if they'll have a chance to get them home for Valentine's day so I figured that a "love" card would be welcomed anytime. I learned after I sent these that he has 70 members in his unit. That's a lot of cards, but I'll get something to all of them eventually.
