a little more SHUGAH pleeeease!!!

You know me..... you can NEVER have too much SHUGAH! LOL!! Ok, I think this is my last Valentine card for you this year. I just couldn't resist using this ADORABLE image for this year's Valentine's Day cards. Ain't she just TOO STINKIN CUTE!! This was one of those "LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT" images for me. Free Smiley Courtesy of And she's just one of the many SUPER CUTE images over at Prairie Fairy Designs. I fell head over heels for this little cutie and couldn't resist picking up a few others too! Now I'm just itching to use 'em!!

For today's card, I Followed The Recipe in the Catered Crop's new FTR5 challenge! Our inspiration for this week's recipe was Denise's card HERE!

Soooooo CUTE! Ok, so here are the ingredients for this week's challenge:
  • Cardstock – red, pink and white CHECK!
  • Pattern Paper – geometric or repeating patterns CHECK!
  • Stamps– an image with a sheep/lamb, mother/child, kisses, or a sentiment about love CHECK!
  • Color Mediums – Copic markers, black or blue ink CHECK, CHECK!
  • Tools – art sponges; square or scallop die cuts or punches; embossing folders CHECK, CHECK, CHECK!
  • Embellishments – ribbon, brads, tag CHECK, CHECK, CHECK!!
  • Techniques– sponging or air brushing a sky CHICK! (Whoops! I meant CHECK!)
Ok, so as you can see even though I used almost ALL the ingredients, my card looks totally different. That's the GREAT thing about the FTR challenges! You can use one, two, three or as many of the ingredients as you want on your project. So let's face it, almost ANY card will work right? You betcha, so get your cards linked up to the new FTR#5 challenge and you could be the lucky winner of a $30 gift certificate to Stampotique Originals. WOWZERS!! Now that's what I'm squawking about!! LOL!! I'm also entering this card into Prairie Fairy's "Fairy Fun Friday" challenge. Whew - say that three times real fast!! {snort!}

Okee dokee, that's it from the hen house today! I hope you hens have a MARVELOUS Monday!! {{{hen hugs}}}
