Whipper Snapper Weekend

Happy Monday, Happy February Everyone! Hope you all had a nice relaxing weekend. The weather is still cold here - not the biting bitter cold that it was last week (thank GOD)! But still cold enough to not go outside very much. I did bundle up yesterday morning and take the dog for a walk! He was very excited, I think the last time I did that was November!!

So with the weather still chilly and not much on the agenda, I was able to get a couple of cards made!! Here are the last two cards for the December/January Release of Anna Wight's Springtime Quilt and Quilting Forever for Whipper Snapper.

I loved how the cherries turned out on this first card. I got to play with some new red Copics I received a couple of weeks ago and I used some Crystal Effects to make the cherries nice and shiny and give them some dimension.

This next card came about just by me playing aroud. First I was just coloring in some images, not to sure what I was going to do with them. Then I wanted to play around with that zigzag stitch, I thought it would show up better against black. Finally I realized I had ribbon that matched exactly with the colors I was using in the image - voila!! Card is done.

I wanted to thank Anna Wight and Whipper Snapper for letting me play with 4 awesome sets these past couple of months. These last two sets really threw me out of my comfort zone - and I liked it :0)

On another note, I wanted to mention that yesterday afternoon I went to a firends house for an in home party. Can you guess what it was? Not jewelry, clothes, kitchen items or even stamps!!
It was a Dove CHOCOLATE party!! Lots and lots of yummy mixes, candies, martinis!! . . . all made with Dove chocolate :0)

Have a sweet yummy day!


  1. Wow that sounds like my kind of party.

    PS I'm crazy in love with these cards. Your stitching is perfect. Why doesn't my sewing machine make nice tight stitches like that?

  2. Ummm...helllooo! A chocolate party? Who do I need to make friends with?

    Love the cards Randee! So not your usual style, but so wonderfully made. The cherry one is awesome!

  3. OMGoodness, these are SO cute!! Love all the stitching!
