Today is a very exciting day for me and my family... we are signing the paperwork and purchasing our first home! Because of the move my card today is was a "limited supply challenge"... most of my cardstock, paper, ribbon, and stamps are all packed up and ready to move to the new house. But I managed to pull out some fun bright colors (the same colors as last week... I loved the green/pink combo!), a cute as a button frog stamp, and a few simple embellishments.

Hello! This is Cheryl from Shestamps.
I’m “gearing” up for Valentine’s Day. Today I’m sharing a card I made using the stamp “Bike Built for Two” (E697) from Great Impressions Stamps.
What do you think? Who would you like to ride a bike built for two with?
Have a fabulous day! Thank you for stopping by!

Yes, I have a confession.......... I ordered these darling little stamps to give away for blog candy...and the longer I looked at them, the more I couldn't bear to part with them. Finally-I ripped open that package and stamped them up for this project!
But lucky for you- I have my sources LOL...I have another set of these darling stamps to offer as blog candy! Here's a tip---this little penguin stamps nicely with Versafine Black ink-you get a wonderful nice dark black penguin body with it. I carefully colored the feet and nose with a copic marker as Versafine can smear with copics.
I added the little penguins onto a colorful Heart Treat Box that I cut with my Silhouette. Yep-just stuck them on with a pop dot along with the stamped sentiment tag too. Very simple. I like simple...and cute!
I also cut several easels with my Silhouette-making it easy to display them. Wouldn't it be fun to find one of these cuties on your desk on Valentines Day?
To win these cute stamps, just leave a comment here and/or on my blog (yes you get two chances if you hit both places) before next Saturday's Jammie Day Saturday! Good Luck!!!
There is a sale going on at Great Impressions Stamps-10% off and free shipping with purchase of $25 through February 14th.(coupon code Love)-don't miss out!!!
See You next week-who knows what next week will bring.............

Valentines Day is fast approaching. If you still need a card idea, I have one for you today. I used this cute mouse with bubble hearts stamp (G46). There is a valentine special at the online store. You can get 10% off and free shipping if you spend $25.
I colored him with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Then fussy cut just the mouse and added him to the floral oval die. I stamped the hearts and colored them.
Layered the floral oval die over a lacy oval die. I like to layer dies for added interest on a card. Finished this one off with some grosgrain ribbon and bow with heart center. I use the Bow Easy to make my bows.
Well that's it for me for this week. See you next Friday. Our January challenge is still going on and you might be our next guest designer. You can't win if you don't play!!

For today's card I used a new stamp by Great Impressions: Floral Bouquet. I used Copic markers to color the flowers and leaves, and I used a light gray Copic marker to outline the entire image.

I couldn’t quite get the colors correct in the photo. The mat, “Hi” and ribbon are all a warm grey that coordinates with the DP. They look slightly olive on my screen. I didn’t have quite the right color ribbon, so I colored it with my Copic markers so that it coordinated better.
I hope this brightens your day a bit. Thank you for stopping by!

Hello There....Welcome to Jammie Day Saturday-my favorite day of the week! I told you last week that I had another Valentine card to show you today-so here it is!
You know I love my Great Impressions meece-this one is having a great time blowing heart bubbles.
I cut a pretty heart border with my Silhouette (a freebie from Birds Cards) and added it to the top of the card with a silky red bow. Both the image and the sentiment are up on pop dots for a little added dimension.
I do wish you all a most wonderful weekend!
