Chilly day in VA

We've chilled at home today. Gabi's sick today. She's fighting a sinus infection, and DR said to keep her out of the cold. It's pretty chilly here this weekend. I love it that way, so I'm happy about the cold. But feel badly for the kids. Been to the DR too many times this month, and it's only half way done! Hopefully, she will feel better by tomorrow. On to crafting....

I had a cow I had already colored from TAC's Barn Yard Birthday but hadn't made it into a card yet. I tried a layout I haven't before, where the top of the image is peaking over the top of the card. I think this layout is way cute, and not sure why I haven't tried it before. I used DCWV glitter Sweet Stack. That stack has some way cute papers in there. Fans of cupcakes will be happy with it. I was happy with it, because it found it on clearance for half off! Love deals!
Supplies: TAC Barn Yard Birthday, sentiment retired from TAC, gems from Michaels, DCWV Sweet Glitter stack, DCWV cardstock, Nesties, stickles, lyra water color crayons, SU scallop punch, liquid pearls.
I have to say again, how much I love nesties. I think they are so easy to use with cutting sentiments out in great little sizes! I have so many more on my wish list, and I feel like I grabbed a lot when I got them for Christmas! I think I should feel guilty about that! But, man they make layering so nice and easy!

Than I placed an order at All That Scraps last week, and it arrived today. Grabbed some Gingersnaps stamps-can we say DARLING! Anyhow, I got the Valentine set, and love the little chickie sitting on the mushroom. I'm digging mushrooms lately. Anyways, I found this layout at Sketch Saturdays off a link on my friend Tammi's blog. I also saw a challenge today at Sugar Bowl to use three embellishments, and three different papers. It's hard to tell, but the pink under the fairy is the light pink paper in the Basic Grey Bittersweet pack, so there's three different papers on there. Oops! I think I went over on embellishments, because I have brads, stickles, gems, and flowers! Oh, well, it's still a stinking cute card! LOL! I cut out the section with her knees and mushroom top and popped them out.
Supplies: Nesties, CC Designs Hey Cupid, Bittersweet by Basic Grey, SU pretty in pink cardstock, primas, stickles, lyra water color crayons.
