Seeing Red....and Pink!

These are some of the cards me and my friends made when we got together last Sunday. This first card was made with an individual stamp called Like-o-meter I got from Stampin' Up! For the base of the thermometer, we used SU Epoxy brads. We thought they added a nice touch to the base of the thermometer. The little dangling hearts I got at the craft show for $1.00 for small baggie of about six. They were the perfect touch to this simple card for our hubbies. Mine is on the left, then Sherrie's, then Neena's.

This is one of the other cards we made. Neena only had peanut M&M's and they are a little too big for these little heart cups so we could only get 4 in there. I won't tell you how many we ate. They obviously were just the right size for our mouths!!!! lol

This next one is similar to the cards shown above but I waited to make these at home and AFTER my trip to Target to get smaller M&M's. Neena said they look really cute with the teeny ones. I bet they look cute with cinnamon red hots too!

This is the last card we made at Neena's but it took a little "homework" too. The glittery cardstock we used for the background is a new paper from SU. It's so pretty and it's double sided so you hate to cover up the side you're not using but what are you gonna do? :o) The little heart that we used was white. I wanted to use vanilla so it sort of matched. I used my Cricut machine and the Doodle Charm cartridge to cut out a new heart and pink scallop behind it. SU has a scallop cutter but you need to use it with the Big Shot or Sizzex. I knew I had a scalloped heart on one of my cartidges so I set up my machine and BAM! I got-ir-done! Sherrie and I also found little "jewels" at the craft show for 99 cents a page. We used them on our cards as a little embellishment. Can you even see the small rhinestones on this card? I think I'll give this one to my mom.

And last, I did this one last night. I used a piece of cardstock from a pack of paper I got at Tall Mouse. One of those big packs with single sided paper!! Go Tall Mouse for knowing you only need one side at a time. DUH! lol And the little hanger is one of the brads I bought at the craft show. They are so darn cute and I knew I had a onsie stamp in my sets. The first one I found was about 1/2" and way too small and then I found this one. It's perfect. This will go with the nursing cover I made.

Okay, I'm on a roll. I think I'll do a few more cards with the candy cups because you know, Valentine's Day will be here before you know it. And I know several people who don't have a sweetie pie so I'm going to send them a little love in the mail.
