A Weekend Away

I am not spending the weekend at home.  I am hanging out at tigardlilly's house all weekend, mostly scrapping and a little cleaning.  I am enjoying NOT being at home.
Since I am scrapping, I made these Friday night for tigardlilly's kids.  They got music download cards for Vday, and I saw these on someone else's blog and thought what a perfect way to give the boys thier cards!  I  found these on  I sort of just used the idea, but didn't use thier template, we lacked the neccessary candy, so I winged it.  I think they turned out pretty cute!!  Of course the boys only really cared about the card inside, lol! 
I got some more Valentine's Day cards from the AMR swap...
This is from Scrappy Girl.   I spy lots of Stampin' Up punches here!!
Julia, aka Grettasgranddaughter sent me this one, but it isn't part of the swap.  She was the person I was paired up with for the music ATC swap, where I made the Bon Jovi ATC.  She sent me her ATC and a Vday card, how sweet was that?!
Here's her music ATC!
Remember the "M" ATC I made last post for the partner's name swap on AMR?  Cliff is doing the swap too, and got paired up with tigardlilly!  Here are the ATCs he made!  The only thing I did was tell him her favorite colors of Bazzill cs, run the Silhouette, and give a few ideas on how to use the ribbon.  He decided on everything and did everything!  She loved them!
I loved them too, so he made me one, with the first letter of the nickname he gave me.  Don't ask, I am not telling!! LOL
First off, I don't know why the colors are so bright, they aren't in real life.  With that said, I used Bazzill cs and Dream Street papers.  I cut out the border, birdies/branch, and conversation bubbles.  The letters are cut with tigardlilly's scraps, her Sizzlets letters, and QK Bracket die.
AMR's Friday Team Challenge 2/13: Button Butterfly+Jewels & Flowers
The challenge was to use buttons and make a butterfly, plust use some flowers and jewels.  I cut the butterfly on my Silhouette, glued on buttons and jewels then outlined it in Black Diamond Stickles.  I used one of my monthly BG kist I got at AMR which included the buttons, all the pp, and the rubon.  I also used more jewels on the little butterflies, added some flowers and brads.
AMR's Card Challenge 2/14: Whitespace
The requirement was to try to leave 2/3 of the card as whitespace.  I used Core'dinations cs, embossed it with the CB Argyle embossing folder, and sanded it down.  I also used Bazzill cs, stamped the Studio G (wood-mounted) shamrock, lightly colored it in with my SU Blender Pen, stamped the sentiment with QK Sophisticate letter stamps, used the SU Ticket Corner Punch, and added a misc ribbon scrap.  I put the whole thing on more Bazzill cs.
I have 2 more Valentine's Day cards on thier way, as well as the winter ATCs.  I will share those when I get them, as well as more challenges from AMR and Scrapbook Challenges, plus my DT layout for SBC.
