Spring buddies cards

Today, I am pretty excited.  My card made it published to the Complete Cardmaking Magazine, along with 7 other Doodle Pantry Design Team members, as a feature spread.  This magazine comes with a CD of images provided by the featured companies, how cool is that?
Here is where you can order a copy from MoreMags.

Here's the cards I made.  
All the supplies details are to be found in the magazine details.
I made one card using the outline images and watercolored it with my Tombow markers and a waterbrush, and then made a small set of 6 cards using the pre-colored images. All patterned papers are from the digital sets I used, Bunny Wabbit Color+ and Fuzzy Duckling Color+.

Here is the hand watercolored card.  The sentiment is a freebie you can get here.
 Set of cards using pre-colored image graphics included in the products.

I hope you can get the magazine, there are so many fabulous ideas in there and getting a CD filled with digital stuff is awesome!

Some cards and 2 Mousy magnet sets giveaway

I am excited that I got to create some stuff to share today!

MOUSE MAGNET SETS   (I am giving 2 of these magnet sets away!  If you want one, just comment on this post and I will randomly select 2 winners next week, Feb 8)
Who likes mice when they aren't nesting in your walls and running through your cupboards?

These magnet sets are using Berry Nice Mice, Cherry Nice Mice, So Sweet Mice and the new Salty Snack Mice.  I printed the images with a Dell laser printer onto Neenah cardstock.
35 mm squares
 30 mm circles

I made several sets of 8 mouse magnets each. I used THESE glass square tiles and THESE glass circle tiles  that I bought from Sun & Moon crafts, and the magnets that I used on the back are also from Sun & Moon crafts. These magnets are the best!  They are super thin and stronger than those big black glob magnets at walmart or local craft stores, and I like that they are silvery in finish and not black chalky feeling.
I used Sun & Moon glaze to "glue" the printed cardstock to the backs of the glass and then used the same stuff to "glue" the magnets to the back. They took a couple hours to completely dry.

I will give 2 Mouse Magnet sets away!  One set is circles and one is squares.
I will randomly select 2 commenters on this post on February 8.  I do not have any container for them, but I will make sure they are securely wrapped for shipping so that they don't break in transit.

I make my kids valentines cards that they pass out at school. Sure, I could buy the ones from the store and make it less time consuming, but I like to be different, and my kids LOVE that they get to "help" choose images and put them together.
I used the new MINI MAZES to make a strip of 3 little mazes to put on the inside of their valentines. My kids LOVE mazes and I figured their friends do too!
I used Silly Critters from last month for the fronts/outsides.

The kids teachers get special cards this year.  I used Lori M's Card Cut Window SVG set and combined with several Doodle Pantry floral pre-color images.  How fun it was to make these cards!  I got to use my new Zing cutting  machine and Make-the-cut to create these.
I made the teachers matching keychain/zipper pulls using glass domes and bails and hooks.
This one uses Bird of Paradise Color image

 Here is a pretty using the Jacaranda color image.
 Love the bright and cheerful yellow of the Palo Verde.
 And the red poppies flowers printed a nice red, but the photo didn't seem to capture it, looks more orangey in the photo.
For the insides, I used a new FREEBIE sentiment for Valentine's Day and some cute flower and sprig dies I got from Taylored Expressions.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope you are inspired to bless someone with a handmade card or gift!
