Happy 40

My girlfriend turned 40 this past weekend and I wanted to share the card I made for her. 
I apologize for the messy desk you can see in the background!

I was inspired by a card Lisa Johnson did a while back, you can see it here.  I loved how she embossed the card stock and then went over it with white ink.  I used a paper towel dabbed in SU whisper white (craft) to brush over my embossed numbers.  I used the Cricut Printing Press cartridge to cut out the number 40.    

Stamps: PTI birthday bash sentiments
Cardstock: PTI
Pattern Paper: PTI
Ink: Memento black, SU whisper white
Misc: PTI mat stack 1 die, double end banner die, Cuttlebug emboss folder
Cricut info : Printing Press

Say hello to my little friends

I made these Valentines for my boys to take to school today.  I was inspired by these Valentine kits at Paper Source. 

I have been a bad blogger - sorry!  I made these a couple of weeks ago and forgot all the Cricut cartridges I used to make them.  I know I used paper doll dress up for the hats and one of the mustaches. 

Hope you have a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
