Getting Punchy

 The cards that I did this time are from an idea I found on Pinterest.
Yes, I kinda love that site.  Helps me with creative blocks I have at times.
You can follow me if you'd like... Krafty's Pinterest
These are very simple to do.
They are regular A2 cards (5.5 x 4.25)
Each strip of colored paper I cut at 1 inch,
 and then punched either a heart or shamrock on the bottom of the strip.
For the card of hearts, I put the strips on a back piece of white since I really wanted the hearts to pop.
The card of shamrocks I just put the strips directly on the card itself.

For this inside of this card, I used a new stamp set I purchased at Hobby Lobby that I believe I will get much use out of since it is just a bunch of words that you can put together to say many things.
Like...I Love You!
Perfect for Valentine's Day...or Just Because.

Here is my Shamrock...or St. Patrick's Day Card.

On the inside, I stamped Happy St. Patrick's Day in Green.
Can't have enough green for St. Patrick's Day, can you?

So my Birthday is in February and my wonderful Husband gave me these BEAUTIFUL flowers.
I am not a big flowers kinda girl, but when he does buy me flowers, 
they are always out of the ordinary...these are no exception.
The bright colors are amazing...especially in the winter, really brightens up the place.

 This is also the Winter Olympics year and month.
I absolutely LOVE the Olympics!
My company has also started sponsoring the Olympics and we had an Olympics viewing at work...
so to show my support...yes, I had to do some nail art for it!
Any excuse, huh? LOL!!!

I even remembered to take a picture of the polish I used for this nail art.
Even though you can achieve this look with any red, white and blue...
or which ever colors you need to show for your country's support.

 I decided to put some extras on this month's blog...hope you don't mind!
I was able to get this new nail polish from Loreal called Pop the Bubbles.
It is not only textured, it has glitter and shine.  I totally love this color.

And one more extra...this book is the new item that I am altering.
Not totally sure what the theme will be, but stay tuned for what I come up with.
I figure I should use some items I purchased and haven't played with yet!


 Again...thank you so much for visiting.
Would love to hear any comments you may have, just leave them below!!!
Take care.
