A Nice Little Valentine

Over the weekend, we headed over to Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Our oldest daughter, Dani was invited their to compete in an essay competition for a portion of tuition over the weekend and to tour the campus. It snowed our entire 3+ hour ride over on Friday night. I was glad that Terry could go along and drive. While it was too bad just a couple of inches, but I had never been to Kenosha and wasn't ready to make the trip in the dark and in the snow.  Carthage is beautiful.  The people are friendly.  BUT I wish it was 2 1/2 hours closer to home. 
Riley Kate and Evan stayed with Grandma and Grandpa Hawkinson.  It sounds like they had a good time. :)  We got home Saturday night--exhausted.  World travelers we are not!

Here's another sketch from Krista's Cards & Thing Challenge Blog.  It was a nice simple one again this week.  I love the possibllities of the 'easy sketches'. It amazes me how different the cards look w/ just a few simple shapes to work with.

Here's mine.  I pulled out The Nicest Things set again.  I wanted to make a BFF card.  Every girl has got to have a best girlfriend to giggle and cry with.

With my Signo gel pen I added dots to the scallop circle and then stitches using the mat pack and piercer along w/ the gel pen. If you don't have a SU! Signo gel pen, it is a MUST HAVE.

I did some quick watercoloring using my reinkers and an aqua painter.


  1. Gorgeous card Wendy. Love your colours, so soft & pretty!

  2. You did a really good job on this card Wendy I really like it :) And you are right I don't know where I would be with out my BFF Carey (aka Roscoe's Mommy) She got me started on this stamping thing almost 10 years ago now.
    Thanks for making me smile thinking about her. Guess I should send her a card!!!!
