Hooked on Love

I saw this cute little moose someone used over on Splitcoast Stampers Gallery earlier this week and knew I just had to have him for a Valentines Day Card for my husband!  How do you make all those traditional Reds and Pinks into a masculine Valentines Day Card - especially for a "Red Neck" Fisherman?  You Just do it and tell him to tough it up!  LOL!

My inspiration for my layout came from a new to me sketch from Sketch Satruday, and here's this weeks challenge layout (. . .and I'm just making it under the wire cause it's due today!):
 . . . And here's my take on this layout:

Isn't this little guy just the greatest! He's actually a digi image from Mel Jen's Designs and his name is "Fisher Moose".  However, I replaced the image of the fish with a heart.  I also replaced the wording on the sentiment from "Hooked on Fishing" to "Hooked on Love" by masking my stamp and replacing the word with another stamp image.  Here's a close-up of my Fisher Moose:
The recipe for all the goods that made up this card:

BandT Papers:  BoBunny 6X6 "Crazy Love Collection"
Cardstock is all CTMH: Chocolate, Desert Sand & Tulip
Digi Image:  MelJen's "Fisher Moose"
Stamps:  CTMH D1325 Camping Fever, CTMH C1405 In Month April
Embelishments:  Spellbinders Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Border Punch, CTMH Chocolate Ribbon, Copic Markers, Crystal Heart Gems, and CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge.

There will be a whole new layout posted tomorrow on Sketch Saturday's Challenge Blog. . . why don't you play along!  :)

awwww. . . shucks!

I love this sweet and innocent little girl and thought she'd make a wonderful valentines image for the Stamping Bellarific Friday Challenge. However, the sentiment which came with her I changed it up slightly and added the "Be Mine" instead.

Here's the Layout from Bellarific Friday Challange:
. . . and here's my take on their layout:

Here's the recipe for putting it all together:
BandT Paper:  Bo Bunn 6x6 "Crazy Love Collection"
Cardstock is all CTMH:  Tulip, Baby Pink and Chocolate
Stamps:  Stamping Bella & CTMH Sentinments
Embelishments:  Spellbinders Nestabilities, Crystal Gems, CTMH Organdy Ribbon, CTMH Chocolate Buckle, MM Heart Shimmer Brads, Copic Markers & CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge.

TFL. . . next card is going to be a challenge!  Making a Valentines Card for the guy!  Keep posted to see how I make out with all those traditional Valentines Colors of red & pink and still keep it masculine!  :)

MOJO224 - Goin' Places

This weeks MOJO Challenge is a super neat little grouping of fun images!  I pulled out some older stamps I had from a couple of years ago, but haven't used much and thought I'd create this weeks layout with Mo Mannings "Oh the Places You'll Go" set.  Just so happens this is also my entry for the BELLARIFFIC0212 week 2 Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers
Here's the layout for Mojo224:

. . . and here's my finished card:
