Today I'm using the Yippee-Skippee set again to show you that life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful!
I think these little critters are funny! They go with the card's sentiment well because they aren't really any animal, but they're still cute. It sounds like my life. Sometimes you can't tell exactly what it's supposed to be, but you just go with it! My stamper gals were calling them moose-cow-monkeys. One gal even made hers into a pig. (It was adorable!) The idea came from a card I saw by Lynn Pratt. I'm pretty sure that her animals were moose, though.
I used the woodgrain embossing folder, the heart framelits, and punches. The critters' bodies were made with the owl punch.
Here is the other version of that I card that I used for my husband's Valentine card.

Happy Belated Valentine's Day! I didn't get all of my Valentine cards posted this week like I intented to do, so I'm playing catch up. Here's a Yippee-Skippee Valentine card for you.
This card uses the Yippee-Skippee and Perfect Pennants sets done in a Primrose Petals color scheme. The vellum heart was embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, which is available for FREE during Sale-a-Bration with a $50 purchase. View the current catalogs here.
The Silver Glimmer paper was colored with a sponge dauber and a Primrose ink pad.
I did this card in Gumball Green as well, for a different look.
I wanted the Gumball Green card to use for a Choffy contest. Click here to learn about Choffy. (It's delicious ground cacao beans that you brew like coffee. So good and so healthy!) Here is my brand new Facebook page where I'll be sharing lots of recipies to use Choffy (or unsweetened cocoa) in.
Here is the picture that I took with the Gumball Green card for the Choffy picture contest.
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day with your loved ones!
I couldn't resist pulling out my Tags 4 You set from the Holiday catalog. I thought I could use it to make a cute Valentine card.
I used the "love" from the hostess set Express Yourself and used the Little Labels punch pack to punch out the word. I also used a mixture of Washi tapes. The gold tape is from the Watercolor Wonder pack from the Occasions catalog. The pink and flowered designs are from the Gingham Garden pack from the main catalog.
I had some extra card pieces left over and decided to see what I could do with them to change the card to a different occasion. Here's what I came up with.
I used the sentiment from the Sketched birthday set and decided to add a little bling to the top of the card from pieces of the Gold Sequin Trim. I find myself always needing birthday cards, so I wanted to make something I'd need later.
There are some tips and tricks to this bundle. Did you know that some of the images are framelits and some are thinlits? Did you know that you are supposed to position them differently on your Big Shot?
Here is a helpful video from Stampin' Up! with some great information, insight, and tips on how to make the most of this bundle.
